It doesn't decrease the DOF at all since that's a physical distance independent of viewing size.

Sorry, wrong answer.

Magnifying magnifies the blur circles too, which makes circles visible that aren't visible without the magnification. In other words, it changes the CoC, which changes the DOF. At high magnification, the blur circles are bigger and easier to see, thus you have less DOF.

See? These are just differently magnified views of the same image.

Those examples represent different output sizes, which this isn't about.

Magnifying an image in the viewfinder is the exact same thing as magnifying them on your computer screen.

This was about seeing the DOF that the sensor sees.

There's no such thing.

Yes there is, the only difference is in the magnification and/or PPI or DPI in output affecting appearence to our eyes/brains. And the point was whether you would see differences or not. Ofcourse the discussion assumes a large enough print and close enough viewing distance that allows to see all the detail captured to begin with, because smaller/less makes minute differences discussed here moot anyway compared to the relatively huge differences discussed earlier.
