      Hi Gary - over the last few posts I sort of covered the main bases necessary - I think - for the points to Brett to be comprehensible. It is very difficult though, communicating across large divides. I mean, what I am saying is very self-evident, and I have even read over a couple of recent posts, and the truth is, I they are an acceptable standard.

      The problem though, is that you and I have very different 'background conceptual framorks'. I think these background concepts are really important not just in shaping how we think, but also in shaping what we can think. If there's no conceptual support in our heads able to support that next thought, then that next thought probably doesn't get thought.

      So, over in your head, your brain has been playing with MWI for years and all these concepts have steadily back to neaar the periphery of your consciousness. MWI feels like second nature to you...your brain strongly supportes that stance from me. It isn't all that likely from my perspective I will ever be driving your car again.
