Cool article. After I saw “The Matrix” I too, Wondered if this life was real, then concluded that it is. I would have been one of many who sensed that, (as Morpheus said) ‘something’s not quite right with the world… You can feel it when you go to work, or when you pay your taxes…’
I would have had that ‘sixth sense’ to know the difference, and like Neo, would’ve sought out the truth. So Yes, I’m in tune tune with the Universe, and I also believe there are multi-versions of what we consider “Life.”
Whenever we’re faced with a life-altering decision, that fork in the road to go left or right, alters our destiny. There is a book called ‘The Alternate Universe’ that is based upon the same theory that, we somehow switch places with our alternate selves every time we make a life altering decision.
What if we go “Left” instead of “Right” What changes? Everything!
I believe there are infinite realities that change us with every decision we make, including doing absolutely nothing.
