- Summary
- The quantum multiverse would require infinite splitting for the probability function to be perfectly smooth, wouldn't it?

Everything is quantised when you look at it close enough. What about quantum probability waves themselves?

If the quantum multiverse interpretation were true, then each quantum decision leads to a splitting of the universe. But this isn't a binary choice, it's a probability distribution. For that graph to be smooth, the universe would have to split infinitely many times at each collapse of the wave function, wouldn't it?

So far we haven't encountered any true infinities in our universe. Space and time are probably quantised, not true continuums. What about the quantum wave function itself? I only have a lay person's understanding of any of this, but as I understand it, the multiverse interpretation says that rather than a quantum decision being random, all options are persued, and interact with each other somehow to produce the wave function. But unless the splitting is infinite, this function wouldn't be perfectly smooth.
