Nonlocality, free will and “no many-worlds”

On the everything list there was a discussion

where there was a link to a paper

Are There Quantum Effects Coming from Outside Space-time?
Nonlocality, free will and “no many-worlds”
-Nicolas Gisin
http://arxiv.org/abs/1011.3440

Abstract: Observing the violation of Bell’s inequality tells us something about all
possible future theories: they must all predict nonlocal correlations. Hence Nature is
nonlocal. After an elementary introduction to nonlocality and a brief review of some
recent experiments, I argue that Nature’s nonlocality together with the existence of free
will is incompatible with the many-worlds view of quantum physics.

Then there was link to Gisin’s talk
