1-5 is difficult without 5 options, unless you're looking for a score on each, but they are kind of mutually exclusive choices... so, I'll put down
my own personal ideas on them...
Our Universes size
B. Practically infinite, but currently still expanding
(the idea of a collapse would be in keeping with other items in the Universe though...but doesn't seem to be trending that way yet)
Our Universes Significance…
I'm a bit dubious on the whole multi-verse theory. Part of me says it's physicists just trying to make their equations workable. My idea of it is
one Universe, though we are limited to our interpretation of it by our 5 senses, and the instruments we have thus far devised (that then translate the
data into something readable to our 5 senses).
From available evidence, it seems likely we are being visited/observed by beings from other worlds. I wouldn't be completely surprised to learn of no
such visitation, but it really wouldn't fit the evidence, in my opinion. I seriously doubt the time travel idea, as I doubt the phenomenon itself
(i.e. other than that which is supported by physics). The whole idea of a "paradox" to me is laughable, as it would seem to require the Universe
"resets" based on the change, etc. I just don't see it as possible to go back in time. I will grant that there are paranormal cases involving data
from the past emerging in the present (i.e. radio waves, even perhaps other metaphysical phenomenon, such as ghosts, and the like, etc.), but I think
even this has more of a basis in the fabric of reality, than the idea of traveling to the past as some kind of physical destination.
Never bought into the hollow Earth theory, or the idea of parallel dimensions much, so I'd say all of the choices seem unlikely. (i.e. no real Star
Lack of Takeover… (Alien)
I don't think this is any lack on the aliens part, other than a lack of desire. I personally think we're being observed and monitored (and basically
quarantined). I think we may be on the fast track (galactically speaking) of tech development, and that they feel we are outpacing our ability to be
responsible with it. If they wanted to take us over, they would have done so by now.
Ghosts & Paranormal…
I think there are different kinds of entities that exist beyond our 5 senses. Some are native to such "areas" of the Universe, and others are
consciousnesses that have passed on from their physical bodies. In addition, there is also the possibility of a psychic impression on a place, person,
etc. which could be like a looped psychic "movie" that could explain some hauntings and sightings.
Religion is fine. Organized religion is trouble. Organized and absolute religions (i.e. we are right and all others are wrong) are dangerous. (us vs.
them mentality). In this sense, even Atheism would apply, at least to those who vehemently oppose other faiths. (organized, anti-religion, if you
It was far more absolute in previous times. One person (or even a small body of power brokers) had much more say in the day-to-day lives of citizens.
Today is far more democratic. How many nations have royalty (beyond figureheads) for example? Compare this to how many have presidents and governing
bodies that are elected. Always a give and take though. In a monarchy or empire, things can happen quick, based on the ruler's whim. In a democracy,
everything takes time to get a majority agreement.
