    You're playing with words. The point is a measure
distribution must be measure *of something*. Thus it
makes no sense to speak of "the measure distribution"
given a wavefunction, unless you state what it is
measure *of*. The only measure distribution we have
been dealing with in that context is of
observer-moments. I call that M(c) where c is a label
for an observer-moment, which I take to be a
computation step.
