    I just thought of this (hopefully it hasn't been asked before), but imagine this. In one world, a man makes an attempt at quantum teleportation. In some other world, an exact duplicate materializes out of thin air. Would this count as a successful teleportation? What if, in the first world, the man is still there? What if, to all spectators in the first world, he blew himself up? What if he hadn't actually made the attempt? By my understanding of things, every possibility is represented by some world, so even though the chance of a man appearing out of thin air in vanishingly small, it still exists, so it must happen in some world (although not one we're every likely to experience). So, is my understanding of things flawed, or does someone have some insight on this question?
