This thread is utterly obvious BS, especially compared to the one closed to redirect to
. This is uninteresting drivel derived from science fiction written by, as the poster before me pointed out, someone who has not
established any kind of identity here. (Edit: Who apparently made the other thread too. Isn't that just delightfully annoying?
) But I just
typed up this long story about my possible but unlikely encounters with parallel universes in a thread actually looking for people who have suspected
encounters with parallel universes, so I'm posting it here.
I am a serious skeptic. The kind who gives credence to things until they're proved impossible, which is why, even though it sounded like complete BS,
I was a heavy defender back during the "Australia has moved" debacle.
But I honestly think this has been happening to me lately. It could just be, and in all truthfulness probably is, memory glitches, but the sensation
that the things I am remembering are the true things while the things that are actual don't fit is just so very strong.
I actually cannot recall most of them over the last few days. Maybe a compensation thing, or maybe just me getting over myself. I'm not sure.
Probably just another sign of my memory not being that good, heh. But again, the sensation is so strong
, and I never "stick to my guns" on
crazy stuff like this.
The big one that sticks in my memory -- because I discussed it with two people at once, I think -- is actually a really very tiny thing. I recently
hooked up with a new girlfriend, who I am absolutely wild about. I was telling her about a trio of animes (yeah, shuddup) that she ought to watch. A
couple of them are really good in the dub, but one of them absolutley must be watched in the sub because half the voices sound like they're done by a
half-asleep Michael Jackson impersonator. She shrugged and told me that she didn't like watching things with subtitles. Not because she didn't like
to read, but because it distracts from what's actually going on in the show/movie. I nodded, understanding, and insisted that she still had to watch
Revolutionary Girl Utena.
Cut forward a couple weeks, when we're talking about anime again with my roommate. I bring up subtitles again, and say something like "I know you
prefer not to, but..." and she just looks at me. She has no idea what I'm talking about; she never said anything along those lines. But the memory
of the conversation was so vivid -- I don't remember her precise words, but I remember her kind of half-sarcastically groaning about the subtitles,
about me telling her that it made sense --- it's all right there in my memory! Vivid, real.
I've encountered this a number of other times, but none of them stick out quite as much. It's always just little details like that, but ones which
you would be hard-pressed to get that wrong.
Again, it's most likely just memory glitches and misunderstandings... but I really, really feel like it's not.
I also joke a lot that there are versions of myself from alternate universes wandering around town, because people keep saying that they saw me where
I wasn't, but that's pure joking. ... I hope, hehe!
