First id just like to say lets not let this thread get disrupted like the other one by pointless argument, the fact is that yes there are many
possible explanations before anyone need jump to something far out like their consciousness shifting between time lines.
Anyway i don't actually believe anyone has claimed for a fact their different memory is a result of time line shifting, so no one need argue with
anyone, its all opinion and no one can give you physical evidence if you disagree, that doesn't stop us having an interesting discussion on the
With that said I've had the same odd memory about Australia and New Zealand but i am more willing to believe incorrect or false memories, however the
idea of consciousness being able to in effect travel between time lines is interesting to me.
I have read many things on consciousness and the brain, one of them was how neurons may have tiny structures on them that could act a bit like quantum
computers, stuff like the double slit experiment and schroedingers cat show how many possibilities can occur until the wave function is collapsed (a
choice is made), if the brain does indeed work in part on a quantum level then it suggests that the brain with its 50 to 100 billion neurons and 1000
trillion connections has a huge potential for quantum possibilities to occur.
If the multiverse and time lines are real then i suspect we are changing the outcomes of our reality on a constant basis except we don't notice it
because the effects are so tiny most of the time, we are shocked if we notice something incredibly unlikely like a land mass changing places, same
with celebrity's being dead one day and alive the next, big scale changes we notice but the constant tiny quantum fluctuations we don't, virtual
particles are popping in and out of existence all the time but we don't see it.
Anyway check out the film the Butterfly Effect to get an idea of the type of conscious time shifting we're talking about, good film to watch anyway
if you haven't seen it!
