comment What is the status of Everett's Thought Equation?
If you read the section on Observation in his thesis, it seems Everett is saying if you modeled a particle system that contained not just an object to be measured, but measuring tools and an observer, you could evolve the system and a measurement is performed with no collapse. We don't look at the particles of the measured object. We look at the particles of the medium of the observer's memory, and find it what it knows. What doesn't make sense? Such a model can't be more than 100 years away.

Well, assuming we wouldn't need a person, per se, just an automatically functioning machine with sensors and a memory, that would drastically cut down on particle required. Is what you're saying though, is that Everett's Thought Equation is likely to be a thought equation for a while? How about 2100?

comment Current map of galaxies' z's and distances?
I was somewhat expecting the acceleration of expansion to be obvious from a current Hubble diagram. Is that a naive expectation?

comment How many years of expansion occurred during inflation?
So... inflation fast forwards through 990 billion years of expansion?
