This reminds me a lot of this book:

Part of the idea is you cannot be certain of your reality, because you could be bipolar or something and therefore not know you're crazy, because you're crazy.

Well, Universe Prime, Earth Prime, the idea behind my reflection is the same.


> "Could" - so none of them did


We don't know anything about that.

I beg to differ. There are way too many variables for us the reduce the universe to a flip of a coin. It's not a switch, it's not binary, it's beyound us. Hell, we don't even know how big our universe really is, how could we know for sure how it started and how everything would play out if we started all over again?


I'm sorry, but I just don't see how you can be so sure about this when everything is just speculation. Don't get me wrong, I respect your opinion, but it seems really too simplistic, too "black or white" to be practicable.


It reminds me of a book I've read a long time ago... Lemme remember... Improbable, by Adam Fawer. It's not about parallel universes, but about everyday probabilities. There're so many things happening everywhere, so many things that could change in the blink of an eye...


Anyway, let's agree to disagree ;-) And check this book out if you find its synopsis interesting, it's a good read! And now I better go to bed because it's already 1AM here... Dammit.


See you around!
