### A theory positing the existence of invisible unicorns causing always
the precise outcomes predicted by QM to come out of experiments is not
falsifiable. "Collapse" caused by conscious observation is also not
falsifiable. Do you notice the analogy? Both are possible additions to QM
one could make, and neither one should be made, because bare-bones QM does
not need them to make correct predictions. And if the MW corollary of
bare-bones QM clashes with your intuitions, well, too bad for intuitions.
