I know they’re just cartoons and I get the gist, but the graphs labelled “naive scenario” and “actual performance” are a little confusing.

The X axis seems to be measuring performance, with benchmarks like “high schooler” and “college student”, but in that case, what’s the Y axis? Is it the number of tasks that the model performs at that particular level? Something like that?

I think it would be helpful if you labeled the Y axis, even with just a vague label.

If “the wavefunction is real, but it is a function over

potentialconfigurations, only one of which is real.” then you have the real configurationinteracting withpotential configurations. I don’t see how you can say something isn’t real (if only one of them is real then the others aren’t) is interacting with something that is. If that “potential” part of the wave function can interact with the other parts of the wave function, then it’s clearly real in every sense that the word “real” means anything at all.
