# Sliced, not Splitted: a Better Alternative to Many-Worlds?

@inproceedings{Thron2021SlicedNS, title={Sliced, not Splitted: a Better Alternative to Many-Worlds?}, author={Christopher Thron and Braeden Welsch}, year={2021} }

The many-worlds interpretation (MWI) of quantum mechanics is currently experiencing a popular resurgence, propelled by such prominent and articulate physicists as Sean Carroll, David Deutsch, Max Tegmark, and Lev Vaidman. The consequences of MWI are mind-boggling: the spacetime universe of our experience is only one branch of an unimaginably fast-multiplying plethora of alternative universes held incommunicado. In this paper, we propose that the mass of Medusa’s hair served up by MWI is due to…
