Parallel Universes Message Board

    Here's a deep one.

    It has been argued that other universes besides ours exist in harmony with ours. Supposedly, Quantum Theory argues that events that happen in our own universe happen in others ... but happen differently. Further, the argument states that other universes exist in different times (present or past) than ours, and the same people in ours have done or do different things ... and are themselves different.

    Amongst other things, that would mean there would be MillionaireMatch in other universes. Suppose you were to pick one out and go there. Wonder what you would see yourself doing? For example, I could see myself still ugly, but maybe with a million bucks to throw around (hey, it could happen). I could see Butter owning a chain of Florists ... see Cats owning her own ranch ... see Kelli kicking Angelina Jolie's arse, more than once for good measure in a celebrity wrestling event ... and Cub would own the Cleveland Indians.

    Ugly,
    I have never seen you this articulate, it must be Columbus which has injected great imagination in you...lol
    My mini meeting with Maayan too in Singapore just before the weekend of Columbus has given me a lovely warm perspective to folks on this forum.

    We are indeed an international community of cyber friends and long may we be together in parallel parts of the world converging here to share a little bit of our true selves. The forum has been a therapeutic escape for me, a sort of self-administered psychotherapy session as I read about all your heartaches, pains, share your happiness, your witty funny sense of humour and suss out the fakes..we are in a sort of parallel cyber stage where all our little lives are acted out and we could take on any imagined role or real roles as we wish and be judged , censored, admired, respected., kicked about on this free stage (except for the prying eyes of the MM Gods who think they know better)

    YOu have all become a sort of cybernet safety net keeping me sane , laughing at all your antics and most of all allowing me to air my two bits of views without censure and even finding a fan mail or two and admirers along the way..Thank you all , and I sure look forward to meeting all of you when my kids are put in order and I am free to roam ..the global nomad finds a patch of green to rest before she rolls on again..

    Hi Suzan.........miss you!!!!



    Well Love ... just come for a visit ... Nashville is wonderful in the fall ... plan a trip ... we'll paint the town!

    ~Smiles

    Do you ever go to the Opera house? I bet that would be a kick in the head!
    Why are you turning into a Ghost poster?



    Do you mean the Grand Ole Opry? I have friends that play there occasionally ... but I'm not much of a counrty music fan ... I'll take you if you come to visit ... we can even go backstage ... so ... come on!!

    I'm a gold member ghost ... a very special person ... that means that someONE clicked on the 'report abuse' button on random posts through-out the threads and tried to have me kicked off the site ... hmmm ... wonder who would have done that? I'm working on having it fixed ... and the potential retribution ... will be intriguing ... to say the least.

    Have a glorious day!

    ~Smiles


    A few of us have written on your behalf. It's already the 15th...MM is certainly taking their sweet time about it. It's the behind the scenes activity that can be the most damaging. Maybe MM will eventually get around to figuring that out and take appropriate action where it is due.



    A representative from MM returned my call this afternoon. Mandy informed me they have indeed received several calls including mine concerning the unfair censorship of Fun. She confirmed someone objected to Fun's remark -- her exact words were the complaintant regarded Fun's behavior vulgar and offensive -- I then questioned why haven't I been removed because Fun looks like a girl scout compared to the couple of times I've chewed members up and spat them out -- at that point she was at a loss for words.

    To make a long story short, I'm happy to report MM is now reviewing removing the censorship of Fun and reopening this matter.

    I encourage other members to also call, write and voice your disapproval. There is strength in numbers.

    I did write several of their email addys and OF COURSE haven't heard from them!!!

    Thanks Butter and Ugly..
    Me on a Harley touring with the go-go girls around the world..now that is pretty neat..
    yeah, and a wayward son who threatens to runaway at every port I take him riding pillion..always wanted to ride in one of those side-car attached to the bike..yeah guys I have decided not to go on tour with them to China .Oct-NOv..just seem like such hard work and so I am open to the next MM destination..hopefully..Min u gonna come over to London first?? Where is GAbriella?

    NOw I think we should all try to go to the next MM gathering as the alternative parallel personna...I have been a playboy bunny at my office do and the women lawyers annual once and that was the biggest mistake of my life..so after that I could go anywhere dressed up anyway i wish..now bi-polar party or parallel universe party would be a fantastic theme party to aim for..see u folks in your disguise..:)
    and how about bringing our favorite dish to a pot-luck party??
    Min , Look..Six..all those yummy recipes..could be a fab food fest as well..

    String theory(1964)is developed from the theory of vibrating strings in an attempt to creat a unified field theory in FOUR demensional space time.
    with using elementary particles it was an attempt of overcome of general low realtivity which results when a quantum treatment of gravity is attempted.
    So--instead of pointy little particles, the components are finite lines (strings) that form closed loops, that shop why in weak interactions particles violate parity conservation.

    *(1984 upgraded by Green and Schwartz) to an emerging superstring theory, a more sucessful attempt, and to ensure uniqueness uses a ten-demensional space,so...ideas on supersymetry which is thought to be a more useful route to a unified theory of fundamental interations than those of the quantum field theory.
    and it avoids the issues of infinities with the introduction of particles of spin--gravitrons...
    Superstrings contain higher demensional spaces than the normal four of space-time.
    Proposes a 10 demensional model of space-time...

    another universe? Death, perhaps just a step up to another plane of exhistance?

    In another plane/universe....
    I would be a mad scientist!
    lol......writing strange television reality shows,,,,BiPolar Island!
    everyone gets to vote on what side of the island people go to...and who gets what meds.....

    I know about the two slit experiment in Quantum Mechanics. You can fire a single photon or electron or any other particle at two slits placed sufficiently close together and it will interfere with itself on a screen beyond. This proves that a photon as well as every other particle is a wave as well as a particle, it demostrates the wave/particle duality.

    Nobody "understands" it, it just is.

    No other photon or particle appears from anywhere.

    For particles to "know" where other particles are I hear that virtual photons and antiphotons instantaneously appear and disappear between them but I don't understand that.

    Quantum Mechanics is weird stuff.

    Three scientists, Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen came up with a paradox in Quantum Mechanics in which if any particle has ever made contact with any other particle and then they are separated even say as far apart as Andromeda and the Milky Way or any other distance if an experiment is made on one say the direction of its spin then the spin of the other is immediately determined.

    Einstein himself didn't like that because it seemed to make an effect happen at a distance, something called non-locality but it appears to be a real effect and no one has disproved it.


    Good stuff, Robot ... the other universe stuff is so speculative outside of the wave/particle duality, what if these "other universes" were populated by only these objects?

    Wow ... no shopping malls ... no FOOTBALL (egad!) ... no internet (hey ... wait, is that a bad thing?) ... no politics (definitely not a bad thing) ... no ex-spouses (Mel and Lisa would wanna live there) ... okay ... getting carried away here ... this is quantum physics ... not Fantasy Island.

    Why do men like to hit things with stick like instruments? There is the baseball bat; the hockey stick; the golf club; the polo thing; and I'm sure others ... what is that about? A left-over attachment to the caveman days? *a new twist on clubbing*

    What's a Mulligan?

    ~Smiles



    Don't forget the love stick, men like to hit with that one.

    A mulligan is a second golf shot that you allow yourself to hit because the first shot was so poor. In other words, it's a do-over. A love stick is never used for a mulligan, unless you want a new putter on the green.

    Shoooooooooot I like to hit some of them upside the head w/a broom

    Postscript to my previous post: Michael Crichton wrote a really neat book called 'Timeline' that was made into a movie (Main character is that Gerard Butler who also played the Phantom).

    The movie was pretty nifty ... my son and I have seen it twice .... the book was a really cool piece of work ... the first part of the book discusses a lot of quantum physics in order to lay down the plot for the rest of the book. A recommended read ... particularly if this subject intrigues any of you as much as ... say ... the concept of a parallel universe where:

    Zack is the Archbishop of the Miami Diocese.

    Kelli is a musher on the Iditarod circuit.

    Suzan is a regular money winner on the LPGA circuit.

    Robot ... good to see you, friend.

    The main thrust of the theory of time travel per se is actually that there can't really be any such thing as far as what people believe about it is concerned. Time doesn't flow ... we do.

    The double-slit light test (info can be found on wikipedia amongst other sources) contends that photons of light interfere with one another, even if only one photon at a time where being emitted from a light source. So, if only one photon at a time is being emitted, in a space otherwise devoid of light ... then where are the other photons coming from? Quantum theory argues that this wave-particle duality mens that they must be in another universe.

    Wormholes are much more obscure and hypothetical ... in theory these would allow us to travel to a another place in our own universe ... or to another one like the one where Cub owns the Indians and I'm a ballet dancer.

    Anyway, there's a really neat short article on the description of what a wormhole is in theory on crystallinks daht com wormholes daht html.

    Sorry, only went one for two here, and the truth regarding the "other universe thing" and photon interference is pretty speculative ... I'm no physicist ... well, perhaps I am in another universe.
