Every choice creates a new parallel universe... (Permalink)
I was chatting with a friend and the topic came up where there was a theory that every choice you make will create a parallel universe where you made the other choice instead. This would mean there are vast amounts of universes where there are so many possibilities. It would explain dopplegangers where two lines would overlap momentarily or whatever else... I don't know. On and on and all that gibberish.
It's just hard to believe that every choice would create a parallel universe. If someone held out a blue ball and a green ball, I'd always go for the blue ball. No doubt about it. There is no way that a parallel universe would stem out to where I chose the green ball instead.
I imagine something like that would only happen if you were faced with a decision where you could go either way but you're stuck on the fence and you're struggling. "What do I do? What do I do??" ... and bam, parallel universe where you went the other way.
I guess it makes me wonder about things that I've chosen to do or didn't choose to do and what resulted from them... Was it better? Or did it get worse? I could use one of those nifty mirrors where I could ask, "What if I......"
