Resolves to one if it is universally accepted (except a tiny fringe), otherwise is weighted based on something believable as to the current state of thinking, like something published in quanta magazine for example. Close date updated to 2030-01-01 12:00 pm

This is the most widely believed one, I think because at least it has a Born rule.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Many-worlds_interpretation#Debate_whether_the_other_worlds_are_real I think it is a philosophical issue as to whether the other worlds are 'real'. Copenhagen requires a "collapse" of the wave function and this doesn't. Disclaimer: I am an armchair follower of this stuff not even studied it as an undergraduate.
