### We do not assume MWI here, we merely observe that a superposition of
quantum states yields computational results in agreement with quantum
theory, which as you surely know, uses the notion of the wave function to
describe the evolution of quantum systems. If the computational results
depend on the interference between a number of quantum states predicted by
the wave function, then each of the states exists - or else it would not be
capable of being causally involved in the generation of computational
results. These states are not directly observed, as in simple quantum
events, yet they exist. The wave function therefore describes actually
existing entities, not just probabilities of observing entities. Applied to
the universe, the wave function implies MWI.

Is it so difficult to see?
