Even if the author is pure woowoo hogwash, this thread is still brain candy. I'm not sold on the idea of other universes being observable yet,
because I doubt we're even a fraction of the way there yet in our sciences (we can't even figure out how to get to Mars safely & without muscle/bone
degradation yet) I think observing other universes is quite a ways off for us. That said, I think it's still possible we'll achieve it.
Count me in the Dream Club in this thread, I've had dreams where I'd swear I was in a real place, not just dreaming it up. There are some
places where I revisit frequently in my dreams, places I'm quite fond of or feel a strong bond to. Or at least the me in my dreams does. These places
mean something to Dream Me, much more than "representations" or such of myself. They're tangible places, real places, that much I'm certain of in
the dreams, that they're not figments of my sleeping mind. I could get much more wordy about this, but I'd end up sounding like a total
nutter if I did.
I've entertained the idea that some dreams are "universe hoppers", meaning that some could be my own conjurings, while others, I might actually be
somewhere real. Maybe in an alternate me, maybe "borrowing" someone for a brief visit. IDK, either is plausible when you think about it.
Ever been somewhere new that has a strong sense of familiarity to it despite never having been there before? Not quite deja vu, but that "I know this
place" feeling. Well, maybe you have, in a "hopper" dream you can't consciously recall. I've also wondered if those moments of spacing out or
even blacking out (presuming no medical issues) might be brief co-habitations with someone from another universe. Maybe that's evidence that neither
are a good fit. Maybe those feelings we get of feeling "funny" or "off" for no apparent reason are indicative of a good "dream hop" match from
elsewhere. And like someone mentioned, maybe deja vu is a key indicator, too. Maybe if we swap with our alternate selves within a certain timeframe,
it leaves a sort of faint connection that lasts past one or the other waking and you're getting something akin to a time delayed memory imprint.
The universe is supposedly infinite. So to, logically, should be all possibilities.
