Pasts in superposition


A particle always is in a superposition of all its possible states. In this site each state has an existence, a reality-experience of its own with fitting values for its properties like space, time, energy and impulse, according to the laws of QED and QCD (Feynman diagrams) and all other known laws of nature (like the conservation laws and General Relativity).

We assume further that the uncertainty relations of Heisenberg emerge as a superposition of this kind of worlds only. That is, Feynman-diagrams only.

If a state contains remnants of its past, those remnants will tell a logically coherent story about what happened in earlier times. If we have no knowledge available of those happenings in earlier times, the (unknown) remnants will appear to us as a superposition of all possible sets of remnants that could have lead to the present state. This superposition will remain until some measurement (or just decoherence effects) will force us to enter one of those worlds.

The past of a particle necessarily always is the superposition of all possible pasts that could have preceded it, all possible pasts that could have led to its present state.

Is that true? Isnít there a law stating no two different pasts in superposition can lead to the same state? Or is there a law stating no two different states in superposition can share the same past? Does nature have a choice?

Letís shift to an example of the philosophy so far. First we give a line-out of an experiment we want to perform.
