Be nice if music and art were as important. On a serious note, I'll take one where there is no religion, only God. On a less serious note - pizzas grow on trees year-round...

I imagine a universe where beautiful slim young gay men are languishing in despair because there is no chubby aging half-Asian to make their lives happy. :) It's in that parallel universe where the pretty young women fantasize about the chubby short guys. Oh and there's no Donald Trump in either of these universes.

That's spooky. I only yesterday finished reading a novel by Iain M Banks based on that very "many worlds" idea. Mind bending stuff.

You've been dreaming of the "Big Rock Candy Mountain" again, eh? Good post and I'm with you about short round guys...

Bigger Girl says most of these alternatives would be pocket universes which the laws of physics would not support, so they would pop in and out of existence in the blink of an eye. In mine, everyone governs their actions by love and the Golden Rule.

Synchronicity. The last blog I read featured John Lennon too, about three minutes ago. So now I am thinking about him all over again.

Interesting question Stephen. I just recently read a novel,"Gingerbread Man" by Lee Strauss that explored the hypothesis of parallel universes, traveling between them. and how different the other us might be.. I would hope in the parallel world I would be in perfect health and drop dead gorgeous, But also I would love for us to be kind to one another. and that greed and hatred would be unheard of concepts .

I'm sure that there are others out there. I'm sure that others may have these qualities. These qualities here? Dream on! However, I do like the list of qualities you have. They seem so obvious but we can't seem to get it.

Imagine a world where wars are fought with whipped cream pies and end when the first person laughs.

The land would be flowing with Diet Coke and gas station chicken.

oh my- my favorite song- I was humming it while I read your words- long before you mentioned John's name. Ironic and sad isn't it how we aren't in his "imagined" world but rather a world with bullets flying....thanks for sending out John's message...we need it today even more than Yesterday

I don't know if parallel universes are fundamentally different. rather a splitting at every crossroads. that road you didn't take, you did.

Interesting theories. Now where's the space ship that will bring me to my chocolate universe?

Beautiful sentiment, Stephen. Oh, and Pixel took my parallel universe, but surely there's another one.

A Universe where art and music are as important in school as sports and math. Man, what have you been smokin' ? Great post Stephen.
