My last post got me thinking about other phenomenons of time and space that will probably never happen, but it's fun to wonder "if." For instance, what if we had ten lives that ran parallel to each other, like lanes on a rack track; we all start off at the same spot, and time is still standard time, but each of "us" runs the race different. It would be like we intuitively know the happenings in each lane and are affected by it, but we're so concentrated on our current one that we just keep moving until we reach the end, or fall down, or pull a hamstring. Eventually we'd find something that would allow us to jump in each lane and experience the lives which are going better. But would we run the risk of destroying "our" life/lane by doing so? What if trying to find a good life, happiness, success, only makes sorrow and failure worse?
Or . . . what if when we die, we instantly go back to our life again as a baby, and each time we have that little bit of knowledge from our past trial to help us make a better life each time? Like playing cards, hoping for a good hand, playing over and over until we get a win, then when we win it's all over--we die and The End.
Or . . . what if dreams are real life, and our awake times are us dreaming? If you were an insomniac then you'd be drawing more and more away from your reality, slowly dying.
I could go on.
