I think here is a missunderstanding: quantum multi-linearity has nothing to do with parallel universes or Evrett's multi-universe idea.Sorry to take that with a pinch of maths, but I don't see how to do othervise: In any space with n dimensions (for example n=3), a bounded domain (for example a cake volume) is limited by an n-1 dimensions boundary (the cake surface ). This n-1 subspace is called an hypersurface and in differential geometry, its vector dual is a rank 0 differential form or 0-form. In a geometrical display, a 0-form is a point, in algebra it is a function. Assume a function maps a single variable x onto a variable y1 in the same space: y1 = f(x).Now, the same function f could be applied to y1 to give y2 = f(y1) = f( f(x)). At the next step we have: y3 = f( f( f( x))) and so on. That russian doll structure of function inside function is what we write in another formalism as quantum multi-linearity. Here, y3 is a tri-linear quantum space for example. The limit of yi when i gets infinite is a fractal. In fact, any fractal structure is an infinite degenerate multilinearity of quantum space. All of that holds in the single, mono-linear original space with n dimensions and tell nothing about the potential multi-linearities of that space. There is one computer, one processor and one owner. When you start to ponder about quantum domain you find that there is plenty of room at bottom ( an idea from Richard P. Feynman) and it become nearly impossible to think of anything beyond euclidean 3-dimensional space.
