Quanta, Computations, and Extended Everett Concept

Alexander D. Panov


In the Extended Everett Concept, proposed by M.B. Mensky, is assumed, that numerous quantum alternatives that are included in a superposition of many-world Everett universe, are available for the analysis to consciousness, being in some threshold states like sleep or meditation. Since this possibility is in the direct contradiction to no-cloning theorem of quantum mechanics, the question arises how this can be. The proposed solution is based on an analogy with the "miracle of cloning of states", which can be implemented for an observer living in the quantum world, simulated on a classical computer. The basis of the hypothesis is the algorithmic solvability of the quantum theory.
