Earlier today, I saw a show that had the smartest man in America with an IQ of 195 who is working on a Cognitive - Theoretic Model of the Universe. He attacks the MWI with:
What do Many-Worlders think about a statement such as this coming from an intelligent person?The Many Worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, in claiming to circumvent the problem of quantum mechanical wave function collapse, in effect claims to circumvent the problem of split consciousness as well. However, since MW is itself necessarily formulated in terms of two-valued logic, the problem regresses to that of how the “hyperuniverse” associated with MW itself “collapsed” out of the sea of all potential “meta-realities”. On this score, MW has little insight to offer on its own behalf. MW thus lacks justificative self-containment and is therefore no basis for a fundamental theory of reality. In any case, since the theory we are describing in this paper is designed to address reality in its most basic form, and thus to address all conceivable realities as its possible instantiations, it supersedes any explanation afforded by MW alone.
