Life, decisions, and multiple universes

Lately I’ve been thinking about decisions in relation to multiple universes. With a little googling I found it defined as “philosophical thoughts on multiple universes are concerned with “bifurcation points”, where decisions by beings of consciousness  cause a splitting of reality, and thereafter separate realities continue”

Whether or not this is really the case is not so much the point, just that it makes for an interesting thought exercise. For example, if I decide to take a midday nap, I sometimes wonder/imagine to myself ‘what are all the other Michael Ellerbeck’s that have split off from this point in time doing. I especially wonder about the more productive ones. This can be a motivating thought process. Then again, sometimes I just take a nap and let those other dimensional M.E.’s do all the important stuff.

  1. Man, I do the same thing, though usually it has to do with traffic. What if I hadn’t changed lanes right before the right lane backed up? Is my other self already resting on the lazy boy at home?
