Many Worlds

I heard of the 'Many Worlds'  explanation for quantum physics in a college physics course.   And it was clearly explained this it was not necessarily a description of reality, but a way to think about quantum mechanics.  Course by then the science fiction aspects of it has been broadly picked up.  Since quantum mechanics is so counter-intuitive, its easy to latch onto this as an explanation.  But 'Many Worlds' is mysterious in its own way.   Quanta Magazine article covers this:

" .... The idea that the universe splits into multiple realities with every measurement has become an increasingly popular proposed solution to the mysteries of quantum mechanics. But this “many-worlds interpretation” is incoherent, Philip Ball argues in this adapted excerpt from his new book Beyond Weird.

Why the Many-Worlds Interpretation Has Many Problems  .... "
