Now how stupid would everyone feel if it was always spelled "Berenstain" in any universe, and just a case that (almost) everyone misperceived it because 'Berenstein' is a more typical spelling for a name.
Of course you will never know for sure since, in this universe, it has always been "Berenstain".

Who here that remembers "Stein" has ever had a feeling that you may have died before? I don't mean reincarnated. I mean died and continued on in another timeline almost the same as the one you left but not quite??

I just want to be clear about one thing...I have NO doubt that the 'stain' people have valid memories. I certainly don't doubt my own memories, or my kids'. We are all big readers, and pay attention to spelling.
This to me is about much more than just memory....it's about different realities. This concept is difficult to grasp, but that doesn't mean that it's without merit.
I love how we are discussing it, and trying to make sense of it all.
I can't let it go either...and frankly, I don't want to. I want to keep reading the differing perspectives.
A part of me feels like we are onto something...something big.
It's awesome! lol
That is the cusp of this Jacy, we ARE onto somthing big.
The problem is, none of us know what, I wish TheOneElectric would have returned, I am telling you guys, this guy has knowledge we need.
He is one of 2 people I have ever read that can talk about metaphysics and get me to actually take them serious.
Problem is the guy is a ghost, he pops in, makes amazing posts and goes, and then comes back or not.
If anyone knows more than us that we know here on ATS it is him.
We are missing somthing here, we need a single spark in the night to show us the next step down this path.
I have been racking my brain for 2 days now, and the best I can get is a half thought, that might be worth somthing, but it isnt complete.
Ok here it is, I am going to throw out my "half complete thought" maybe you guys have another piece of this pie to add to it.
I think this is some great...just grand plan that makes us so small we are bacteria trying to listen to and understand Mozart. We are a less than a flea on a seeing eye dog in a gallery full of Van Gogh Starry starry night.
This goes without saying, go outside and look up at night.
But what if we are being given, through sheer luck( honestly what were the chances a childs book would be the catalyst to start this conversation?) a chance at seeing the actual divine?
Not necessarily the mind of God, but maybe a scribbled note he threw in the trash.
A side note to the infinite.( side note I am not religious in the traditional sense of the word, I believe in no established religions, but I do believe, more along the lines of the native americans "Great Spirit")
I think this is most likely a way for us to see that this world is not as it seems, and the the many spectacles this universe play out at the cosmic quantum AND relative perspectives at all times.
Maybe it is time travel changing things, maybe it is the universe unfolding itself to us at last, maybe it is just a simpe case of us all drinking way too much fluoridated water..........
Told you it was half a thought.
It took half a page and said nothing.
But it could matter if anothers views could counter point this, thus bringing the whole closer to the visible surface.
PLZ TheOneElectric, come back, talk more, drop hints, tell us we are stupid whatever it takes, just take this splinter out of my mind someone.
I do not talk like this, I write about physics, I talk about science and understood reality.......This is beyond my depth as I understand it, or is that the point? The remove a portion of the shroud that blinds?
PLZ I just need numbers or facts that I can quantify, I feel I am going insane here.
The 1990s were a time of globalization which science and technology saw notable growth. The decade brought some of the greatest scientific findings and technological inventions in human history.
Today, when we have advanced computers, highly efficient machines, mobile phones, and satellite mapping, the scope of technological advancement has only increased. Every day a new mobile device, a better and faster computer, or a smarter car engine is developed by engineers (and announced by marketing). The scope of improvement and growth remains exponential.
