A thing or event does not come into existence, or reality, until it is experienced by the self, or what is referred to as "I" or "me". It is this
"I" that the bible describes as the part of mankind made in the image of God, not the physical body we use to identify ourselves as distinct from
others. That being said, I believe that Schrodinger was only partially correct. Namely, the cat could be poisoned, but either is or isn't relative
to our experience of it. That is to say that the POSSIBILITY of the cat dying exists at the same time as the POSSIBILITY of it living does but the
REALITY of either only comes into existence when the self experiences one or the other.
The bible does not explain this paradox, and I believe for good reason. God, wants us to be curious and to seek answers...it is what motivates a
searching for Him (the truth). But it is not by any means true that because the Bible does not talk about it, that it is not true. The bible does
not talk about Dinosaurs, and yet man has managed to discover thousands of species of them. The Bible is a guide for living, not a scientific
documenteation of the history of planet earth. Genesis explains the creation of the heavens and earth spanning a period of six days, but what is a
day without a 24 hour rotation of an earth that has not been created yet? A day to God could be a millennia to you and me. It is all relative.
And this is the KEY word "relative". It is why Einstein is know for having the most comprehensive analysis and understanding of quantum mechanics.
Things are or aren't because they are experienced. Time is relative to the self. Renee Descartes also had a very good grasp on reality and
existence. "I think, therefore I am", is the most mind bogglingly simple explanation of reality that I will ever know. We "are", we "exists"
because our mind, the self, acknowledges our experience of a design we have come to know as a physical reality. So does a parallel universe exist? Yes
AND no, not Yes or No. Read Stephen Hawking's A brief History of Time. It is the best overall explanation of quantum theory for the layman.
