... to me. For the sake of argument let's say the many-worlds theory is true and that for every moment in time the universe branches off for every possibility. If that's the case then how can cause and effect ever exist? Either reality is an unbroken chain of domino-like moments which fall into one another or it's chaos. Either the universe is one entirely connected whole where every "thing" has an influence on every other "thing" or it's made up of separate, discrete pieces that have no effect or influence on one another. I don't see how it can be both. What am I missing?
