Collaborations of Abstraction

Somewhere this was not writen (really could not think of a title)

Posted on: October 20, 2009

I just read this article in the Guardian

It got me thinking about the events in my timeline and if its just the major events that can cause a split or can small events also change the timeline?, Or has the event got to happen on a Quantum level?.

Lets say if it was just major events. If i cast my mind back to a major event i can almost say with certainty that this must have happened at some point, when i was 18 i fell 35ft off a cliff onto rocks, i broke my leg and foot and was in plaster for a good few months, two weeks later climbing instructor fell 25ft onto rocks and died instantly, in this case there must be a world where he is walking around feeling lucky to be alive and i am not, or even we are both gone or both alive, at the two moments in time for both of us that universes split, if the threoy is correct for major events in our lives then all of them must be possible.

If it was just minor events or at least ones that seem minor, then me flying to the states is one i can remember, there was a moment, i looked at the plane and felt strange, almost like part of me turned and walked away, i honestly can see that at that point part of me maybe walked off and did not get on that plane and got on the bus instead, creating a different reality again to the one i am now in, for example i would not now be writing this blog, imagine one choice could create another universe.

The idea that each and every action in the world would create a split in the timeline would mean the amount of universes would be staggering, perhaps it is just major events in a timeline that can change and split a universe. Or maybe this is personal, perhaps there is for each of us our own personal universe, it could be that each universe in this world is linked to a rational being and that when the timeline for that being finally ends, so dose the universe that time line is on.

Consciousness of our own existence could well be our own universe. If the source of the lighting strike is our birth and each branch is a universe thats split off then all of the universes must come to a end when each branch finally is grounded or disperses in the air, each branch is a universe and when the strike has all gone then so has the universes and all space and time for that Consciousness ends.

In the world of philosophy and science, experiments like the hadron collider can create a exciting and enlightening topics of discussion that we might not have thought of before.
