Get it fast, get it right

Infinity you’s, infinity me’s!

Have you heard about the multiple worlds theory? Before we get to it, let’s start with infinity.

Infinity is a concept of something  so big, it cannot be described by a number. It’s like, the number bigger than the biggest number in the whole wide world. For example:

  • 9 is bigger than 1.
  • 99 is bigger than 9.
  • 999 is bigger than 99.
  • Therefore the biggest number is 999,999,999…

But for every “biggest” number, there is always a number bigger than the “biggest” number. If you can ever find the biggest number of all, then you have found infinity.

Another word that can capture the idea of infinity is, unlimited.

Enjoy the symbol of infinity for a while. Now, I'm about to pusing your kepala.

Now, the universe is always expanding, right? It’s always growing bigger and bigger. That’s why we say the universe is unlimited. There is no end to the universe. The size of the universe is infinite. It’s like so big, you cannot even imagine it, or put a number to quantify it.

In an infinite universe, there are infinite possibilities. Out of an infinite number of possibilities, it is possible to find another planet that has life, right? It’s like, if you can find 999,999,999 planets, I’m sure more than one of it has life. Agree?

Therefore, if many planets have life, then it is possible to find many planets exactly like ours. Right?

So, if there are many planets exactly like ours, then there are many planets that have exactly the same amount of population, exactly the same countries, exactly the same trees, exactly the same mountains, exactly the same people, exactly the same rocks put at the exact same places. Can you imagine that?

Now, if you can accept that, I’m sure you can find another human being that looks exactly like you, talks exactly like you, behaves exactly like you, thinks exactly like you, and is 100% like you, in one of those worlds. Agree?

“Come on, what are the odds of that?” You may retort. But think about it. What if you have an infinite amount of chances to find it? If try infinity times, in an infinite universe, I’m sure you can find at least two. Or, you may find much more than two. In fact, you must be willing to accept that there may be 999,999,999 of you.

Well, that’s an interesting theory, at the very least.

Let’s part for now on a light-hearted note. Enjoy this music video. Made by 8 similar people, found from 8 similar worlds in an infinite universe.

  1. but… the universe isn’t infinite in size. it’s measurable… i think.

    the sort of thing you’re talking about makes more sense in the context of a multiple universe theory. if there are an infinite number of universes, then all the stuff you said logically follows.
