Evolving wrote:Even if many-worlds is correct, the thought experiment is only valid if everything that happens in the macro-world, including somebody's death, is the result of (or attended by) the collapse of a wave function at a quantum level.

A sweeping assumption, or not?

Reading back through this post I found a weak point, you would have to rigorously define what it means for an event (e.g death) to be "the result of a wavefunction collapse." At the moment it's vague.
