    Don't hide the details of your views.

    I believe it so much I can barely function in normal society.

    So much so that I gave my daughter an idea for a story called "the other me" that was so well received at school that she got an award for it.

    I think every decision we make creates an alternate universe and that sometimes the walls between them are very thin. This is why I love the DT so much

    great thread Letti

    I beleive in a multiverse a lot like king's theory actually. But yes, defininitly.

    I think that some of the great authors who create their own other literary worlds get their ideas from visiting them

    I'll second that.

    It might sound a very stupid questions.. but do you guys have proofs or evidences or are these just feelings and thoughts, ideas?
    Let's tear apart this topic. It's so exciting.

    Why would you think anyone would think that Letti? Now asking something like "Does Letti's avatar picture show how drop dead gorgeous she is?" Now THAT is a stupid question...or they're blind. Anyway...

    As for proof? No, it's purely a strong belief I've had since I was 7 or 8 or so..now there is some scientific research going into it and from what I've read on that end there is a lot of evidence pointing towards the existence of a multi-verse. I've often thought that the things that over the years of mankinds existence, we've called supernatural have been contacts between this world and others. I believe there are parts of this world that are "thin", where you can often experience this kind of contact.
    Also, changing your consciousness, heightening it via drugs, or meditation or a big one, death is able to bring us into contact with other worlds.

    Nikolett, please pay most serious attention to the first paragraph of AllHail's post right above mine.

    As for proofs - the experience (my own; my friends' and acquaintances' in the so-called real world; my friends' and other people's I have canvassed in my own thread very similar to this at .net; people reporting weird events in media - these last may be 99.99% bumhugs, but why should I suspect all?) shows that too many things can't be explained otherwise, while multiverse would explain a lot. I love Ockham's razor. If an assumption explains more than one phenomenon, I am inclined to like the assumption more than a dozen others that would explain every phenomenon separately.

    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    A bit no on proof for me but I do believe a persons perception has a lot to do with their reality. That being said, I also think that we don't "see" (or perceive) as much as we are capable of.

    If you imagine the electromagnetic scale--we are only able to see a very small amount of the light spectrum. Now, that doesn't prove any thing and may seem disjointed but its just an example of what we are are not aware of happening around us all the time.

    Also consider the famous Homer quote (Simpsons not the blind guy 0

    Okay, I see your points I really do but the way it's so natural for you that there are other worlds than this it's so natural to me to think in this only one.

    I also believe in other worlds/whens. I think what convinces me most is myths and legends.

    Take something like dragons for instance. They are so ingrained in mythology, yet there would seem to be no scientific/historical evidence for them existing or having existed. So why are they so prevailent (sp)?

    I would say thats because maybe in some other world they are/were a reality - and like CK says, there are places or altered states in which the ways between worlds are thin - and that some people may cross over and thats how we gain these myths etc.

    I also have had these beliefs and theories since I was very young - although I still don't feel particularly eloquent on the subject, or maybe thats because its too contradictory? For example - I believe alot of legends may have formed from these chance encounters with other worlds, but I also believe many myths are easily rationalized as storys invented to explain certain phenomena or situations.
    I don't think a person necessarily physically travels to another place, I think perhaps only our subconcious does...read KPAX for more enlightenment

    However - I also agree with Matt, that are reality is shaped very much by our perceptions of it. I think acceptance of concepts we might not personally be able to percieve or comprehend though is sometimes needed...a leap of faith I guess you'd say.

    Do you think these worlds are different or similar or both?

    For me, there are as many differences as their are choices. There is a Matt somewhere that is still married to that witch for instance.

    You didn't put a "Maybe" in this poll. I think it's a good possibility, but i have nothing to base that on other than maybe just the idea that I think it would be cool.

    Yes I do. And as long as there is no proof of it not existing, I'll continue believing it. I mean, the universe is so wide and big and huge, why wouldn't there be any other worlds, why wouldn't there be any other parallelworlds?

    That's all the proof I need!

    I voted yes, i think parallel worlds do exist but are sadly shut to us and hidden beneath the fabric of reality... Maybe UFOs are people from parallel words that have found a hole in time and space and have been able to enter.. Maybe there are holes or "doors" that allow us access to these worlds and people have stumbled on them by mistake? Like the Bermuder Triangle?...

    So, earthlings..basically urm...end of the world...Here Come The Drums!
