Hello everyone, hope you're all having a good day.
I love the idea of a parallel universe. In fact I have always wondered that there could be one. My idea is quite straight forward - once we die and exit the world we used to live where next? I call it - "The Secondary Protocol", when we pass away we immediately enter this protocol which is parallel to our old life - we start all over again but this time we have a have a specific protocol to follow and that is: change the things we regretted. Once we have re-lived our own death in the parallel universe both our original lives and secondary lives collide destroying each other. Thus allowing us to pass on with no regrets and forget the bad things we done.
Thank you for your time to read my post. Discussion on this topic really interests me and perhaps you guys can teach me a thing or two about time and space.
Thank you for your reply.
I understand what you're saying by learning from our mistakes but what if we could re-live our life and "virtually" change it to what we really wanted in life like the things we never got. What fascinates me about your comment is "We are who we are" - yes that's now, reality. But could you imagine a parallel timeline in which our alternative lives are crafted from what we learned in our previous life.
Your comment is much appreciated.
You say "what if we could change it to what we really wanted?" The thing is, how would you know what you wanted until after you had lived? Are you suggesting that this second time we go through life we remember the first time? I am not disagreeing entirely. My own theory shares one similar component to your own in the belief that we do relive this life. Or, rather, we exist over and over again. I don't think much changes each time, as babies have no memories of past lives and even if they did when we enter into a language, we have no way of remembering anything beyond what can be described by said language.
While it is nice to think that we can change our mistakes, I also believe there is no point to it. As much as I regret a lot of things, I only regret them because I have been shaped by cultural, spiritual, instinctual influences that tell me what is wrong and what is right. Beyond all of those layers of "meaning", I don't think right and wrong exist and therefore would bare no regrets outside of this earthly existence.
Think about it. But, thanks for the cool thread to inspire the above thought processes.
The secondary life would be another chance. I have always imagined it like a DVD. We could rewind and fast forward our original life in this parallel life and change the things we have regretted. If this was possible we could live in a virtual world we always wanted to live in. Lets face it our world is probably the most beautiful planet in this universe but some the people live on it do not appreciate this. It's these people who are narrow minded enough not to care. There is no purpose to this at all. It's kind of like, limbo - a holding room for us. This parallel world would be our holding room and once we have changed the things we always wanted to we move on almost like, "Perfect". It's like watching your life again but with no flaws. But what if we eliminted evil? Would an over balance of good upset the scale?

Another idea is that that life isn't like that at all but rather is eternally recurring. You will live this life over again, exactly as you have before. Any mistakes you made in this life, be prepared to make them over and over again, forever.
Obviously, none of this is true but I think the lesson in the myth of eternal return is, don't beat yourself up over the mistakes because they are permanent and unchangeable.
we start all over again but this time we have a have a specific protocol to follow and that is: change the things we regretted.
The infinite means that we absolutely will exist within this life over and over and over again simply because that is one of many infinite possibilities, and all of those possibilities will exist at one point or another because the fabric of reality is infinite.
