Hey guys, I am back, just a little case of retinal detachment fixed by hi
tech. One little problem. I was allegic to the antibiotic drops... I am ok
now, just very busy, trying to catch up.

Yep, we are hunting wabbits instead of the Tyrannosaurus Wex.
 Well, we must start somewhere. But it is fun.

How about casting the SE with Psi as a relative quantity just like position
or velocity? In other words we would be always talking about Delta Psi = Psi1
- Psi0 rather then absolute Psi, where Psi0 would correspond to the
(coordinate system of the) observer. This would be the logical continuation
of MWI thinking. As Tegmark pointed out, testing this equation by
experimenting with the observer Psi would put the life of the experimenter in
danger. Any way out of this?
