Scope/Content: Before writing a first draft of the long thesis, Hugh Everett wrote three short papers, often refered to as his minipapers, for John Wheeler to review. This minipaper, ultimately called "Probability in Wave Mechanics," develops the basic premise of Everett's thesis stripped of its formalism, but laced with explanatory metaphors, such as splitting amoebas that share overlapping memories until diverging into separate futures recorded as consistent histories. There are several handwritten drafts of this minipaper and two typed versions, one turned into Wheeler. The present document is one of the handwritten documents, found in the early drafts file. Scope/Content: This document was found in the basement of Mark Everett in 2007 by Mark Everett and Peter Byrne, in a file labelled "Early drafts."
