Okay, so I am no expert in this field, but would like to acquaint myself more with quantum mechanics. As I understand it, the collapse of the wave function according to MWI only appears to occur, when really the observer is copied into as many different histories or(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); worldsas there are possible outcomes for the event, therefore seeing only one and wondering why. Also as far as I know, worlds only "split" when a thermodynamically irreversible event occurs. But what I am asking is can't the wave function collapse be real and not just apparent? Can't the wave function collapse be due to an interference and not involve going beyond internal causation?

I would be very happy if you could shed some light on my question. Thank you.
