    Shockingly, this is NOT a DMX question. No, this is for the deep thinkers, the philosophers. the physicists, and the poets. Many thanks to @Stevens R. Miller for the question. After the last brain-teaser, a CB member requested another. :)

    If the many universes theory is correct, does that mean there is a universe wherein it is incorrect?

    No, because of the ontological nature of the original premise. If multiple universes exist they exist inside a larger whole, or all are guided/driven by the rule that they all exist. If there were a universe wherein Multiples didn't exist then all others would cease to exist. Either Multiples exist or we are the universe in which they don't we have some, albeit sketchy, evidence that other universes exist ergo a universe in which they don't can't exist.

    Yes.

    Theory states there is a timeline for everything.

    With/without

    Big/small

    Here/there

    Just because it doesn’t exist in that universe doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist in another. Even if that universe has a no other universe policy.

    If I can get the attention of any of the angels currently dancing on the head of this pin I'll ask them and get back to you.

    Well, gosh darn it, this old geezer is going to have to get all swervy for just a minute. One of my big issues is that old scifi standby, the parallel universe. IF two or more universes are truly parallel, then how would anyone know it. Now it's a whole 'nother cushion of pins it there were 2 or more NOT-QUITE parallel universes.
    Now back to the regularly scheduled discourse.

    Quantum Leap is a good way to describe how we would know.

    String theory allows for the collision, or cross-over of two 'Brains' <or universes>. Unfortunately it results in the destruction of both.

    Oh that happens all the time. Unfortunately, every time it happens, that universe stops existing as soon as any of the inhabitants (or ourselves) become aware of the contradiction. 'cause Quantum.

    I believe honor requires that I credit the origin of this question to my fourteen-year-old son, a high school freshman at the time he asked.

    Reminds me of a Catholic schoolboy question often asked of nuns - "If God is so powerful can He create a rock so large he cannot move it?" After the immediate application of Sister's ruler to the offender's knuckles she'd reply "God is moving planets now. Any other questions?"

    Telekinesis, as far as I can determine, Ron, or some kind of direct radiation. I haven't had to make a service call on that system...

    I just got around to reading this thread.

    Holy crap that's extra intelligent for an old Portland hippie to come up with. @Van is either really smart or really stoned right now. :think: Not sure which.

    Hey Man, with all those years spent missing cues I've had plenty of time to think up replies to things like this.

    Hey Kids, Mr. Swervypants back again with more blather. How does our personal universe fit into the socalled Cosmos?
