Personally, I might have. I'm curious to read people's experiences on here. Use your best judgment when determining the level of their veracity.
Let me ask you this, how do you know that your not this "alternate self" You dont, because that would assume that there was a base common knowledge
that such a thing even existed, (and there isnt) which leads me to believe that unless you did know for certain that an Alternate Self existed, as far
as you would be concerened you are the "one". In the end of things we really are extremley unique and individual. I think this alternate you wouldnt
even look like you, because all our "Alternate selves" lives can very in infinite direction, our experiences and environements determine who we are
and what we look like, these alternate worlds they live on would also vary in every possible way and so on and so forth, its a ripple effect. I
believe that in a lot of these "Alternate Earths", humans dont exist, because its nieve to think otherwise, who's to say if things didnt go well
for us here and now, what the next intellligent being would be to take control, and not necessarily fomr earth either.
On the plain of perception that i exist, i will never be able to interface my thoughts seamlessly with everyone, thats what makes us human and unique.
If i could whats the point? We wouldnt need eachother for anything.
To become something your not, you will have to be destroyed first. Life.
