As I understand it Aspect's experiment doesn't completely rule out hidden variables it just means that if they exist they must be non-local.

What's so bad about that? Maybe the hidden variables simply exist outside of spacetime. That's a lot more reasonable than observation "creating reality" or bazillions of parallel universes.

But I like parallel universes. Every decision ever made throughout history creating an infinite exponentially fraying thread of divergent timelines. It means I'm immortal.

Why, because in one timeline you were able to discover a way to live forever? Death is always certain.

Not him but yeah, that's how infinity works. There's a universe where you'll still be alive in 60000 years.

I don't get this "decision" thing -why do we as humans think we are so important that the creation of infinite universes hinges on the decisions that we make?

Based on half remembered popular science I read when I was 13, I think it's more that any time an outcome is undetermined, when the result is observed, all outcomes happen in different universes, and this includes our thought processes and decision making.

That's not how infinity works. There are infinite numbers between the integrals 3 and 4, but none of them are 5.

With infinite probability you're assuming that you can reduce the problem to something akin to "if you play the lottery infinite times, you'll win the lottery infinite times". However, without a guaranteed source of entropy we can't assume that infinite universes would be in any way different to our own.
