    Many Worlds? Or just all possibilities are already there somehow?

    Is the many worlds theory an interesting quirk or flaw in the human mind that will crop up everywhere? Or are mathematics, music and the quantum world unrelated?

    In some parallel world, your first post won all of the Nobel Prizes for this year for initiating new lines of research in so many fields.

    At present, the best minds in the world cannot agree on that answer.

    Whatever the answer is, it's not a testable hypothesis.

    For mostly philosophical reasons, I don't ascribe to the many-worlds hypothesis.
