A concept by "Faery_Lova_98"...
Parallel Universes? Sure it sounds like some sort of term for the latest Syfy film, but some believe that it is really a possible explanation for the way life works on earth. This such topic is a hard one to explain, since it is very closely entwined with Quantum Physics and Mechanics, but then there's that part that ignites interest in people everywhere that does speak of a possible magic, or the forward thinking of people that could bring this idea to reality.
Now to start explaining, you know when you see a tree and you follow it up and eventually it breaks off the trunk into smaller branches? Imagine the tree represents you, the break were the smaller branches come apart signifies a decision in your life that you either take or refuse, and the smaller branches - they signify who you are depending on your reaction to the decision. And to think of it like a tree is a pretty good explanation, because trees have branches that come off branches off branches and so on.
Sally has lived her live normally, until one day she is offered a big job as an executive producer at a big TV station.
(a) she could except the job and go on to become a very rich, well known producer.
(b) she could refuse the job and go about her life and perhaps chose to do something else that could benefit her life. And:
(c) she could ignore the offer and spend her life wondering what she might have done, which could lead to depression etc.
They are exampled of 3 different parallel universes. Some people believe that instead of having a different universes for a single person and every decision they ever make in their life, they are grouped together.
If Sally had taken option (c) and had perhaps become depressed, then her universe would be full of depressed, underachieved people. This world is altered a lot, not just through Sally's decision, but if everyone in her world were lazy or dumb people then perhaps her world would not be as developed as modern day society today.
If Sally had taken option (a) and became very rich and famous, her world may be full of rich high-achieving people who all had high-paying jobs. Perhaps this world would by highly enriched with technologies of the future (e.g. hovercrafts,) because the people of this 'Parallel Sally''s world would all be confident, academic people who had the potential to strive for cures for cancer, etc.
On another idea, some people believe it is possible to travel back and forth between these "Parallel Universes" using a type of time machine. This is where the idea that 'The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion,' said by Albert Einstein. We may never truly know. I hope this has opened your mind, please feel free to inbox me your thoughts and/or creative criticism.

This is probably the only thing on this site that is true. We must assume that there are multiple universes. This is a theory in physics that is quite popular.

This wouldn't make any sense because one persons decisions could change all life in that specific universe. EX: Someone decides to kill someone else 1 less person, or on a bigger note legalizing abortion. Both a decision that change the universe and make it so the universes would just be to different making them non parallel.

What if the parallel universe is literally under our feet? What if every step we take in every other universe we take a step as well?
