    You turned left when you should have turned right.

    Do you believe that there is an alternative universe existing alongside ours where you did turn right, with all the repercussions of that decision following on?

    Or is there just this one universe and just this one choice?

    I believe there are precisely seven universes. No more, no less.

    And in one of them, I have a moustache.

    I think the Berenstein/Berenstain Bears issue is proof of multiple universes and that people can and do cross over between them. :emoji_wink:

    You're talking about the Mandela Effect. I still remember the movie Interview with a vampire where all my family members clearly remember it as "interview with THE vampire".

    My wife is the only one who remembers it as "a" instead of "the"... a lot of more coincidences with her and some of my friends that the rest of my family remembers it differently. I also prepared several topics that where controversial to some of my friends and they either remember it like I do or the other way around... no in-between which is weird as f*** !!

    Okay, I just had my own Mandela Effect moment!

    I remember this series having a different breed of dog!

    The dog I remember being in it looked more like this....

    To be serious The Universe is the totality of all dimensions however exotic, so parallel dimensions or worlds would still be part of the actuality that is the universe as distinct from non actualized i.e. non existent.
    Possible World theory or modal realism is basically a metaphysical linguistic trick to explain vague sentences like " I could have been a movie star"
    Philosopher, the late David Lewis went a step further and believed in the actualization of infinite possible worlds, existent but causally separate from our world. World meaning our actual world i.e. totality of The Universe.
    See " metaphysics -possible worlds" thread for details of this bizarre notion which got other philosophers saying " Lewis doesn't think these worlds actually exist does he? "
    "yep he does" or did.
