    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*** !!

    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.

    Everyday Chemistry is a remix album of unknown authorship that was made available as a free digital download on September 9, 2009.

    It mashes up various songs from the Beatles' individual solo careers, intending to present an album that the members would have recorded had they not broken up.

    Fictional context

    The album was accompanied by a story written by an anonymous person under the pen name "James Richards".

    Richards describes meeting a man named of Jonas who lives both in the real world and a parallel universe in which the Beatles never broke up.

    Jonas and Richards both discussed their enjoyment of the Beatles.

    In return, Jonas gave Richards a cassette tape containing one of their albums from that imagined timeline.

    Richards denied that the album was composed of mashups, reasoning that "even though in the alternate universe the Beatles hadn't broken up, that didn't mean their future music ideas disappeared."

    Philosophically, I like the idea of a multiverse and want it to exist...

    However, what I want and what is "real" are often two completely different things.

    Of course, in recent times, I've become increasingly aware of the phenomena known as the Mandela Effect and once again the idea of a multiverse comes to my mind...
