Measurement of a quantum system appears to create a discontinuity in its evolution, since superpositions are collapsed into eigenstates.

The Many World Interpretation (MWI) posits that this collapse is merely subjective, providing a new perspective on the apparent paradoxes invoked by incompatible measurements of the same quantum system. Solomon will discuss this approach and present results for a violation of a "Bell's inequality in time": the Leggett-Garg inequality.
