It is hypothesised that there are multiple alternate realities running alongside our current reality; that there exists a separate version of yourself for every decision you (or anyone else) has ever made. Many physicists have disregarded the theory of a ‘multiverse’, saying that is isn’t a legitimate topic of scientific inquiry, and rather belongs in the realms of philosophy.
The more you think about it, the more ridiculous it seems. Is there a version of you that became a billionaire? Is there a version of you who never grew out of your Emo phase, and still wears black drainpipe jeans and listens to My Chemical Romance because it’s “not just a phase”? Is there a version of you who actually had the guts to ask out your high school crush? These idea that these ‘alternate selves’ may exist in a physical form somewhere sounds like pure fantasy, but the fact is we simply don’t know. We can’t prove that it doesn’t exist, we can’t prove that it does. Maybe we should try to understand our own universe before trying to understand other ones. Either way, I’m sure this will idea will fuel lazy science-fiction writers for years to come.
