Yes! That's exactly it.

Now how about this. Observers are not constrained to observe a single path
through "potential-state" space, but rather, are constrained to only
observe )and
communicate via) one of the paths (or all of the paths) that remain
consistent with
existence. So there is room for (a limited form of) free will and
limited observation
of quantum uncertainty in these theories, if necessary.
