They exist along an infinitely branching dimension orthogonal to the
ones we're built to perceive. For example:

Let's say this is the linear universe of our experience:


All of our perceived dimensions, length, breadth, width, time, rolled up
into a one-dimensional line. Now, we introduce a quantum split in which
two possible states occur; let's say in one the cat's alive and in the
other, dead:

/ \
/ \

The dimension that runs left-right on our diagram is that in which the
MWH places the infinite tree branching of quantum events.

   You ride in 250 tons of molecularly aligned crystalline titanium
wedded to a ceramic ablative matrix.  You carry a 200mm Gauss
cannon, two massive 10-gigawatt lasers, two SMLM fire-and-forget
missiles, a Vulcan IV point defense anti-missile system, and a
deadly assortment of other equally lethal weapons.
   Your vehicle is the ultimate product of 4,000 years of armored
   Your life expectancy is less than two minutes.
