I disagree with this. Everett did propose a new theory. It is SWE,that is QM without collapse. *All* interpretations of it are multi-realities. Everett is just QM, and the Everett branches comes fromnot avoiding the contagion of superposition, which follows fromSWE linearity. The existence of the relative superposition is atheorem of QM. Copenhagen is SWE+ collapse, and this is self-contradictory or quite fuzzy (what is the collapse?).It is changing your knowledge of the wave-function - replacing someuncertainty with some knowledge.Arguably so if the comp arithmetical quantum logic fits with theobserved quantum logic. I do appreciate Pauli and Fuchs. Where Idisagree, is that they oppose this to Everett, but I see no reasonwhy. In fact Everett+Fuch is made consistent in the many-dreamsinterpretation of arithmetic, developed by the numbers insidearithmetic.Bruno Bruno, you may take this as a joke.But I think that quantum state selection is like selected a sperm toenter the egg.In the dream space the most probably staets are clustered together, And all together, like the intelligent sperm, The states decide which state is selected to enter the physical world..

`I know that life is hard and that spermatozoids have a lot of hard`

`time to convince an ovule to let it go in. But "entering the physical`

`world" does not make much sense to me as there are no such "reality"`

`in my favorite theory. What exists in arithmetic is a notion of more`

`probable computations/consistent extensions, and the correct`

`description of them must give the laws of physics, so we can test the`

`theory.`

Thanks for letting me take your metaphor as a joke, you reassure me :) Bruno
