Parallel Lives

Every moment of every day, we are making choices that we believe define our destiny. If today I choose a path that diverges off on a tangent, it seems like there is no way back.

Or is there? What if, in some alternate universe, some parallel life, I take both paths? Or all paths, like some kind of ever-multiplying fractal?

We cannot be certain of anything but this moment. Nothing outside this moment can actually be proven. If we suppose that All things are possible, and All things occur in this moment, then does the choice we make here and now truly dismiss all other choices? Perhaps it just enables the human brain to focus upon one choice in a sequence timeline so we can compose a story about it; all the while, every other choice is being played out in infinite layers that are somehow integrated in the quantum field.

The point is, let’s not fret over ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ choices when All things exist simultaneously. We may be focusing on ‘this’, but ‘that’, too, is being experienced on some level.
