Latest incarnation of the Schrödinger Cat Paradox forces a new view of quantum theory

A recent paper by Frauchiger and Renner has brought to light a serious problem with  conventional approaches to quantum theory, by deriving a contradiction using those approaches. In this paper, I argue that the paradox shows that quantum theory leads to absurdities and inconsistencies unless there is a clear physical criterion for ‘measurement’.  This is a draft, so comments welcome!
