Just finished watching Dr Who. Was a troubling one, which set Me and Tool off on discussing the possibility of Parallel universe. I was saying to Eilidh I remembered reading a book, where when a person made a decision, the initial person carried on with the consquences of that decision. But in a parallel universe, the same person followed a life which adapted to the consquences of the alternative decision. Not only did two parallel universes co-exist - but many many thousands more, because parallel universes opened each time a decisions was taken.
In Dr Who, some time monster makes Donna make a different decision which took her away from meeting the Doctor, and which results in the Doctors death, and ultimately the end of the world.
In the course of the discussion, I told Tool she should read "The Road Less Travelled", by Robert Frost -
|TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,|
|And sorry I could not travel both|
|And be one traveler, long I stood|
|And looked down one as far as I could|
|To where it bent in the undergrowth;|
because it was all about making a decision, and contemplating the what might have been, should you have made the decision differently.
Then I opened my email box, and found my Ziggy Cartoon for the day.
