Interesting post fj
I didn't really understand anything you said in your last post, except the last paragraph, which is more or less correct.
I meant that a collection of quantum effects may work together, rather than thinking of it all in terms of individual quantum superposition’s. The macroscopic world works like that e.g. if I move a glass with my hand, then all the QM effects in that action are working with the macroscopic set. Otherwise we would have to think of me moving the glass being done as an effort by the particulars.
This is also what I meant with the rocket moving faster in time than a man stood on earth, the rocket as an object is forcing the quantum decisions macroscopically ~ as an object.
Actual Possible Events:
If we were to, say, run the double slit experiment, and let's say we're using a tool to measure which slit it goes through. Let's say that in 1 minute we will shoot one photon through. It's fairly accurate, according to our knowledge, to say that it's actually possible for the photon to end up in any place behind the slits that isn't completely blocked off (if we weren't using a tool to measure which slit it goes through, it would be able to even end up in places that were blocked off). Now, MWI takes each actual possibility and makes a universe out of it, as we've discussed
Position 1. I agree that when the photon is shot through the slits it ‘acts like a bullet’ [as its often described] if its being ‘observed’ [I.e. something is making it act as expected for a particle and not a wave]. As such it can only move around like such an object can.
Position 2. Then if it is not being observed it can go anywhere even beyond where its blocked off. This is because it is no longer a single object but an entire ‘ocean’ or is otherwise EVERYWHERE at once. We could say analogously that the act of observing makes the ocean form into a droplet of water, and in the location at which it is being observed.
…hence it’s the observation from in a sense outside the ocean which makes quantum energy act as packets of energy, this is why I made the assumption that events in the world of objects create the effect to begin with. In other words QM are being determined by worldly occurences.
I agree with you're position here. I think - if I may, that there is a series of most probable events, or even determined events, because as you say I would have had to have been thinking about poking my eyes out prior to the moments before and probably for some time prior to the decision to do so.
I assume then, that QM is based on decisions in the immediate timeframe of specific events.
What I mostly meant concerning Einstein was that there are always duel positions. The relativistic [moving away from the clock] and the still [the person stood next to the clock]. Just as relativity is also measured against light as the universal medium [the still].
Now we are getting somewhere, great stuff!
