This is John Cramer's Transactional model, no?

I had this halfassed idea the other day: a Deutschean shadow-universes 
intuition that the Quantum Zeno effect might derive from superposed 
activities in adjacent, only slightly divergent M-W realities where 
intentionally directed activities reinforce or prohibit a certain 
outcome, unlike ordinary stochastic radioactivity, say, where the 
"shadow overlaps" in/from nearby worlds are arbitrary. Might this have 
an impact on big beam programs, say, perhaps delaying or inhibiting some 
otherwise possible outcomes (Higgs manifestations, e.g.)?
