I believe this to be the most ridiculous theory making the rounds. We actually make billions of decisions during our lifetimes. There is no fricking way that when i choose Coke instead of Pepsi anything happens anywhere else because of that decision. This is just a wacko theory made up by someone suffering deep regrets. You don't get another shot at your choices until your physical existence ends in this world. And even that it is debatable.

Something seems out of whack with the concept that you make a choice for one direction yet you still continue along the other un-chosen possibilities in a new universe.
Being involved in the spiritual awakening side of the human equation, I can easily see Possibilities and Probabilities inherent in each Choice Moment.. that much is a given. But, when we make a choice for one direction we then move in that direction, and all other possiblities for that moment fade away... because they were not made Real by Action... they were not Chosen and they do not continue in existence.
One thing about science is it fails to understand its own state of existence as being in its "early childhood" phase. Many hundreds or thousands of years from here science will look back and think how silly it was with some of it's Theories.. just as adults look back on their childhood and see the sillyness we had as a child.

I believe in aliens.
I find reptilians, inner earth, hidden aliens on planets from this solar system not impossible.
To think there is a different dimension to every choices that could have been made?
Not at all.
Maaaaaybe some dimensions may split with important decisions but even then, to me, it just doesn't make sense.
Things that didn't happen, didn't happen and won't ever happen in that exact same time.
Even if you could change the past, the reality of those from where you originally came from, would still be in the same dimension and their past would not have changed. Don't know if you get it ^^

I find it interesting you mentioned pneumonia as something that could kill us, a family member of mine just died last night from pneumonia.
Anyway, got a couple questions, it's going to be a bit hard to put what I'm saying into words.
Okay so about conciousness. I still can't really wrap my head around why we're concious in *this* universe right now and how is my friend concious in my or rather this universe. I mean my friend could let's say either throw or kick a ball, where does his conciousness end up? I mean he's either going to kick or throw the ball in my universe, so let's say he kicks, alright, but...what's he doing it in my universe of choices? I could then either drop my ball or hold onto it. I decide to drop it. We've just created a fair few amount of new universes. But for some reason we're both concious in the universe of kicking and dropping the ball choices. But, I still find that perplexing. Our concious seems to be in the same universe, but is it? Is my friend truly here? How do I know? It's too confusing.
Okay and I wanted to make a thread about this but I'll post it here. You mention dreams could be a gateway or whatever to some alternate universe, and some people believe de-ja-vu is when two alternate realities collide in the same space and time for a brief moment, I get that too. But allow me to elaborate on this dream theory.
In your dreams, have you ever dreamed you were not human? You may have been able to fly, teleport or whatever, but you were always a human right? You weren't a dog, snake or a snail, right? I can't ever remember not being me in some way, the farthest I was away from being myself in a dream was when I was a female for some reason. But I've always been human, and I've always been me, not Bob down the road, me and only me. Somewhere different maybe, sure, but still me in the end. So I find that very interesting.
Thanks for the read, love the theory.

Very good point. And that is why the quantum world is so strange, so alien, so counter intuitive. The 2-slit experiment agrees with you, when it is OBSERVED. A photon must go in either slit A or slit B to get to the other side. However, when UNobserved, the Universe doesn't make a choice, and it allows the photon to go through BOTH slits. Somehow, a sentient observer AFFECTS the universe and forces it to choose. It is so strange...
...AND QUITE PROFOUND. What does that say about the human spirit? About reality? So, when we choose direction A, we only experience the choice we made in this universe. But, there is a state of quantum existence called SUPERPOSITION in which something exists in the state of two choices or positions.
