If I could turn back time ..................

Weirdest Ever. Weird Weird Weird.

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.

How flipping weird is that?

But it gets weirder.

As we sat looking at this cartoon and wondering the coincidence, the programme on the TV ended, with the conclusion, "so remember, when you make a decision, you should consider the consquences of your actions".

Is fate trying to tell us something?

    The mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work unless it’s open
