This is incredibly intriguing stuff here. I know there is truth to this, although I'm conflicted by it. I'm no longer a Christian, although I was raised in religion. Now, I'm merely a spiritual man, who believes...well, quite honestly, I don't know what I believe anymore. Lets just say that I know 'men' (as in humans) are NOT all there is to life. Personally, when I think of God, a woman usually comes to mind. In fact, 'usually' is kind of an understatement...why do you think God always turns up as a woman in my stories?
However, I realize that this view of mine may be just as narrow-minded as 'holy' books to which some religious folks so desperately cling. Perhaps God is bigger than a single being...bigger than a single universe, even? Perhaps He/She/It is something that none of us are capable of comprehending. The day that we do truly understand, our species will probably not even be able to be called 'human' anymore, as we'll be too highly evolved.
The reason this article intrigued me so is because I know in my heart that there's something to it. Look at how creative I am...this shit has to come from somewhere. I think my level of skill has more complex reasons behind it than just mere talent and imagination. Those are too simple and too arrogant and have nothing but a 'me, me, me' feel to them. Painting these pictures and writing these stories are as natural to me as breathing. The ideas have to come from somewhere! And I think it's ironic that I've always told people, "My ideas and inspiration are purely whimsical...they come straight from the ether! I hardly need to think about new projects. They just COME."
And, of course, now I've landed on this article, and it's only reinforced what I believe.
(A little snippet from the article...a link will be at the bottom. Copy and paste it.
Or just click on the title to the blog, and it will take you straight there.)
Mathematician Hugh Everett published landmark paper in 1957 while still a graduate student at Princeton University. In this paper he showed how quantum theory predicts that a single classical reality will gradually split into separate, but simultaneously existing realms.
"This is simply a way of trusting strictly the fundamental equations of quantum mechanics," says Barrau. "The worlds are not spatially separated, but exist as kinds of 'parallel' universes."
Partly because the idea is so uncomfortably strange, it’s dismissed as sci-fi by many critics. But there are also many credible, respected proponents of the theory—a group that is continuously gaining new adherents as new research unveils new evidence. Some Oxford research—for the first time—recently found a mathematical answer that sweeps away one of the key objections to the controversial idea. Their research shows that Everett was indeed on the right track when he came up with his multiverse theory...

I surround myself with them, as it is with them that I feel most comfortable. I owe everything to artistic people, for without you, I would be nothing. Be you a writer, painter, actor, musician, architect, or whatever, I thrive upon your efforts. You are the air I breath. My solace. My stronghold. My safety net. My sanity. My reason for living. I love you all. Childish. Creative. High maintenance. Sensitive. Insensitive. Insecure. Quick tempered. Loving. Loyal. Lustful. Incredibly horny (especially after 3 decades of involuntary celibacy).
