As is the theory that the other parts of the superposition were real
and continue to exist forever, just somehow shifting to some other
"world" that did not exist before that moment.  QM contains no
provision for any of that.

No conspiracy is required for things to be the way they are.

Did the sky conspire to be blue when it is sunny and clear?  Did water
conspire to be wet?  It does not matter that you or I observe these
things.  These things were, with no thought to who would observe them,
and then we observed them.

As noted at length previously, superdeterminism is not necessarily
incompatible with free will, so no such robbing is postulated.

If you claim it isn't, you admit to not having read what I have
written in this thread, and thus confirm that you have no intention of
honest debate.

is not what I am arguing, even if there are some similarities.  That
you would make such a leap is dishonest and insulting - not to
mention, it causes you to believe things about other people that are
not true, therefore making such assumptions diminishes you.  Please
stop hurting yourself.
