Well, I was talking level 4 "all mathematical/subjective experiances"
exist, not level three "many worlds interpretation" but the same
thing is here too.
Let U be the grand universal wave function. ie, the actual (level 3)
multiverse as a whole.
P(a1|U) has a certain value. P(a2|U) has a certain other value. U
simply is what it is. U can be viewed as the sum of a1 and a2 and b
and so on and so on, and P(a2|b) may be less than P(a2|U), but that
in no way changes U itself.
For that matter, the different superposed states are indepentant of
each other anyways. That's why the many worlds interpretation is a
potentially valid one: because there is a legitamate explanation for
why the other still existing parts of the wavefunction (ie, the other
worlds) are non interacting with us.
