What we need to understand here is that the actual equations of reality math that

But the human math equations of decoherence etc. only produce probabilistic results.
Right. So are you saying there is some 'hidden math', like hidden variables, or t'Hooft's
ultradeterminism, or Bohm's universal potential, that secretly determines which of the
probabilities predicted by our QM is actually realized? Is it in principle possible for
us to find this reality math or is it forever hidden?
This is a good example of how reality math and human math are different. The
Omnes/Everett interpretations mistakenly apply only to the human equations which are
just descriptions, not actuators. E.g. Everett assumes that the human quantum equations
somehow calculate reality but they don't, and therefore he falsely assumes an
interpretation of the human math equations has something to do with reality but it
doesn't. Therefore they have nothing to do with actual reality and in particular MWI
doesn't apply to the actual math of reality and thus doesn't apply to actual reality.
