    Assuming future technology allows an experimenter to start and stop their conciousness at will, could any sort of experiment be devised to test quantum immortality that would not present an inherent existential risk?

    We do not understand consciousness and the measurement process. I am not aware of a testable prediction by the many worlds theory.
