    I was watching a series (I think it's called Cosmos) on the science channel and it was about alternate universes. I'm really interested in this now. There is also a connection with this on an episode of Fringe, wher Dr. Bishop explains alternate universes and how each one varies from the next.

    So think about it. Everytime you do something it leads off into an alternate universe.
    For example, say you walk to the fridge and get a glass of soda to drink. In your universe you pour a glass of soda and close the fridge and walk off to watch your show. But in another universe, you could have opened the fridge and the soda could have fallen out spilling all over the floor. In another universe, you could have tripped, fall, and receive a concussion from hitting the refridgerator door.

    It's fascinating. Imagine the possibilities. What if dinosaurs never went extinct and gave rise to an entirely new sentient species? What if Nazi Germany conquered the world? What if John Mccain won the election instead of Barrack Obama? What if Michael Bay never directed the Transformers movies? (I'm sure many of you on this board would gladly attempt to go to that universe lol)

    If this is true, there's an infinite number of universes out there, each slightly different than another.

    Multiverse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Just a bit extra information.

    Name some events that you think would be different in an alternate universe.

    Oh yeah. I was reading about all of this alternate realities/parallel universes stuff a while back as part of research for a story I was trying to work on. Pretty fascinating stuff.

    There probably is a shattered glass universe. In another universe, the Decepticons are the bad guys and the autobots are the good guys.

    Oh no, in another universe Transformers doesn't exist at all :0!

    Multiple time lines is an interesting concept but I can't help but be skeptical of such an arrangement and generally don't dwell on it when I do dwell on things related to theoretical science and time I think about time paradoxes.

    Like say you went back in time to kill hitler and succceed, wouldn't you grow up in a world where hitler was already killed/a non-issue? If so you would have no reason at all to go back in time to kill him(if you even exist at all). Since you don't kill him history remains exactly the same until you unknowingly repeat the cycle and try again and again and again dooming everyone and everything to this unbreakable cycle.

    Time travel should probably be illegal.

    In an alternate universe, Toxicon would be Toxibot.

    And I would be Mechaice.

    :p

    In another universe, Jurassic Park never would have been written, published or made into a movie. Then where would you be? :tongue:

    The whole "multiple universe" theory, or whatever it is, is purely science fiction. It's what science geeks think of when they're high.

    What if the whole universe is just a grain of sand stuck in the fingernail of some giant being?


    Or worse yet, Gobots turned out to be the dominant franchise.

    In an alternate universe, I'd be more cleverly sarcastic and have an appropriately witty rebuttal to this topic.


    AND HAVE SNAKES FOR HANDS.
