Omis: Or if your counterpart was a chick, would you have sex with her?
DarnoKonrad: MetaCarpal: I hate to break it to you guys, but "multiverse" doesn't mean that there are alternate realities.Sure it does. In fact, depending on how big our universe is, there may be a copy of you out there posting on farl.com There's only so many probabilities before you have to cycle back through them.
brantgoose: TheManofPA: This is truly the darkest of thread timelinesHis Shadow be upon you, Unbelieving Child of Light! Or something. I don't care. Neither does the universe. One of my firmer theological beliefs is that the Universe does not play favourites."All things come alike to all", as Scriptures put it. God sends his Sun and his rain upon the wicked and the righteous alike.Some people, Job's Comforter types and Church Ladies, mostly, think that God punishes the wicked and rewards the good every day with disasters for the unrighteous and wealth and American flags for the righteous.To paraphase Morbo the News Monster, "GOD DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY!"God so loves the world that he letteth it alone to go its own way as best as can. To a given value of "God" and "world".
ParagonComplex: Already been evidence of pre-Big Bang radiation that looks an awful lot like another universe collided with this one possibly creating the Big Bang itself. Also theories that this is how other universes are created. That outside our universe if we were able to go to such a place exists other 'bubbles' where the other universes exist. When the bubbles collide you get things such as The big Bang. Makes sense to me.
sno man: I have a goatee, does that make this the evil universe?/'cause that would explain a few things...
sno man: miss diminutive: sno man: I have a goatee, does that make this the evil universe?No, your evil universe counterpart would have a double goatee./mine would have quadruple tinfoil pigtailskinda like this for the goat?[www3.pictures.zimbio.com image 594x394] or this...[www3.pictures.zimbio.com image 594x396]as for the pigtails...My google foo is weak today, but 'quadruple pigtails' with safe search off had some interesting, although completely unrelated and so we are all clear NSFW, pictures...
DarnoKonrad: HotWingConspiracy: If the multiverse is real and all possibilities are represented, doesn't that mean there is a universe where there is no mulitverse?*hits bong*Ones that collapse in on itself I suppose. The multiverse doesn't exist for those unfortunate realities. *hits bong* This good stuff man. You get this from shiat form Neil deGrasse Tyson?

nmemkha: The Multiverse, eh? Sounds like a convenient dumping ground for the unexplainable (replacing God).
rogue49: BTW... having a multiverse would make the most sense for the red-shift acceleration.
MusicMakeMyHeadPound: nmemkha: The Multiverse, eh? Sounds like a convenient dumping ground for the unexplainable (replacing God).Hey, even Lot had to start out with, "Wow, sleeping with my daughters was not a good idea at all. I'd better write that one down..."The notion of god has always been a sort of placeholder for what we haven't known or felt that we couldn't know. Well, that and a personification of our neuroses. Even the Christians have nothing on the crazy the Romans dreamt up, whooooo!
MusicMakeMyHeadPound: nmemkhaWhat I find interesting is the fall of poly-theism and "knowable" God. The God of all the major world religions (Abrahamic and Dramatic) is both a singular unknowable creator God.Meh, I think it's wholly predictable. Those religions didn't start out that way (remember: Jesus is about 1,940 years overdue on his return and God should know that rabbits don't chew cud). And it's no secret that science rejects claims that are unfalsifiable as being unworthy of examination.Clergy aren't stupid, they're just stuck between having invested an awful lot of their life and passion on some pretty bold claims versus needing to pay their bills and getting through life with some dignity.Of course they're going to declare God "unknowable". Suck on that, you eggheads.The math on multiverses seems to work out, so it's worthy of speculation and investigation. Science takes this with a grain of salt, however, since (as far as my armchair spectatorship is aware) it's not more than a hypothesis.That being said, I still get goosebumps reading Max Tegmark's paper from 2000 concerning multiverses and the probably of parallel universes within that./SPACE ENDS HERE - MIND THE GAP//also a bookend to an excellent album by the band Leiahdorus
F42: MurphyMurphy: In every blackhole there may be another universe.Of course not. A "black hole" is just a star dense enough that photons fall back to it instead of escaping. It's not the magical "it can do anything" gimmick that sci-fi makes it out to be.
Branbot: Yes because Marcelo Gleiser, blogger extraordinaire knows the secrets of the universes.
SnarfVader: [i212.photobucket.com image 277x345]Seriously love this stuff but I have a hard time wrapping my head around any of it.

nmemkha: And I find little excitement in the prospect. Its doesn't matter since it we are fundamentally stuck in our own doomed universe.
brantgoose: Plurivalism raises an important question: how do you tell which Universe you are living in?The short answer is that you can't.
diaphoresis: There is a multiverse.. how else do you explain premonitions? Overlapping occurs every so often. That's what I was told by the other me.
ski9600: csb\I used to be a "shift manager" at a 7-11 (11pm-7am). I guess I was the shift manager, because I was the only one there. I regret that if I were smarter/more observant I could have used that title to have some business cards printed, added it to my resume, gotten a raise and generally puffed up the whole experience. Well, heck I guess I could still do that.I had to quit because it was supposed to be part time, but within two weeks I was getting my full 40 hours and the girlfriend deprivation as well as sleep adjustment really messed with my social life. Thankfully I didn't get robbed or have to deal with tweakers.
MusicMakeMyHeadPound: nmemkha: And I find little excitement in the prospect. Its doesn't matter since it we are fundamentally stuck in our own doomed universe.Well, I'll stay excited. You go ahead and "meh" to yourself there in the corner.
