Hi Michael,

Thanks for your paper… I’m a bit confused about the proposed ontology; what’s really happening between the measurements, in this account? Aharonov’s take on the two-state-vector formalism seems to be that both the pre-selected wavefunction and the post-selected wavefunction are “really there”. But you don’t seem to be saying the same thing, despite a similar starting point…?

I guess I’m particularly confused about the phrase “complex transition amplitude density”. Can you unpack exactly what you mean by this? Are these “densities” part of the ontology of what’s really happening between measurements, or just a representation of a lack of knowledge about the eventual outcome?

Best, Ken
