I agree, not by itself.

If there are only a finite number of states the entire universecanbe in, then that's also true for observers.That simply begs the question.Finite or infinite universe, observers are always finite.The universe itself is not defined by observers.The state of the observer can then factor out of the branches the universe is in.That is just a meaningless contention. The state of the observer, or what the observer is aware of, or can or cannot factor out, is irrelevant to the universe. Reality is not defined by observers.
