Whatever idea you were trying to convey in the above I have no doubt the
English language is capable of expressing it in a much much clearer way, and
by using only one third of the space too. And ditch the diagrams, they don't
work very well in ASCII.

NO! The splitting or merging has nothing to do with measurements or
observation or consciousness; the great advantage of MWI is it doesn't have
to explain exactly what any of those things are.
