Doesn't this just hinge on what I call in my book the
semantic-syntactic distinction, aka the  1-3 distinction (long debates
between Bruno and JC on this), or the subjective-objective
distinction, or even discrete-continuous distinction.

Without this cut, the very concept of information makes no sense, and
without information, Darwinian evolution doesn't happen.

ISTM, no-collapse QM is a continuous theory, it lacks this cut, which
must be added in as an extra axiom.
