Geert Van Damme, The Many Worlds Interpretation in Quantum Mechanics

The Many Worlds Interpretation might look quite controversial and weird, but maybe, in some way, it might be a viable solution for the problems and paradoxes we encounter. Let’s try to find out, do some experiments (lasers and stuff, yeah!), and see for ourselves how we can interpret the results.

The MW view certainly solves some difficult problems, but generates some other. What do we (and others) exactly mean when we talk about parallel universes?  Maybe there is a way to integrate the MW view with our normal everyday experience of the world around us.
