In the many worlds interpretation of Qm, is there one universe in which I am a horrible murderer, for example?
After you commit (theoretically) your first horrible murder the universe will split another infinity times. So there will be an infinite number of them.IvicaPhysics said:In the many worlds interpretation of Qm, is there one universe in which I am a horrible murderer, for example?

Lol... also, maybe ?... there is one universe in which you are just aMentz114 said:Whether you do this or that in some alternative universe is not specified by the interpretation, which leads to much (pointless) argument.

Who gave you this premise of infinity? That's not true, it would be divided a finite amount of times, if the interpretation was correct, in quantum theory discrete regions of space have finite amounts of energy. The probability of DNA-based life is greater than zero; and if the number of types of DNA-based living things is finite (because the size of the DNA molecules cannot be arbitrarily large ,the number of possible histories in each region is finite because the energy in each region is finite and, according to quantum mechanics, energy is quantified.Mentz114 said:After you commit (theoretically) your first horrible murder the universe will split another infinity times.

Yes - everything consistent with the boundary conditions and laws of physics happens. Loosely speaking, everything possible happens.IvicaPhysics said:In the many worlds interpretation of Qm, is there one universe in which I am a horrible murderer, for example?
If we have two indivduals, then one presumes both individuals continue to exist in the splitting of their respective universes. It becomes difficult to track any individual or to count the universes in which they exist when all possible splittings are considered. Without specifying some kind of counting procedure your argument is speculation.Dxoutkast said:Who gave you this premise of infinity?

The many worlds interpretation is a theoretical framework in quantum mechanics that suggests the existence of multiple parallel universes. However, since these universes are not directly observable, it is not possible to prove their existence through empirical evidence.
In the many worlds interpretation, the concept of probability is explained by the branching of parallel universes. Each possible outcome of a quantum event exists in a separate universe, and the probability is determined by the number of universes in which that outcome occurs.
The many worlds interpretation is a theoretical framework and cannot be directly tested or proven through experiments. However, some experiments in quantum mechanics, such as the double-slit experiment, can be interpreted as supporting the idea of multiple parallel universes.
The many worlds interpretation is one of several interpretations of quantum mechanics, and there is ongoing debate among scientists about its validity. While it has gained some support from physicists, it is not the dominant interpretation and is still a subject of much discussion and research.
Currently, the many worlds interpretation is purely theoretical and does not have any practical applications. However, some scientists believe that further research into this interpretation could potentially lead to new technologies and advancements in our understanding of the universe.
