“My Life Not Yours” / Memorable Fancies #1266

[“I don’t care what you say anymore, this is my life.” – Billy Joel]

Have you noticed that the world has a single point of view, and it’s YOURS?

Now, how could that be? How did this universe become YOUR universe, and you the only subject in it, everyone and everything else just objects of your perception? Why YOU? You’re nothing special except to yourself and your mom, just one of seven billion people in an overcrowded world; what about THEM?

But there’s an answer: everyone has his own universe. This one, out of billions, just happens to be YOURS. Mary, over there, in your own verse of the multiverse just a simulacrum, in her own universe is real, and there you’re just a bundle of her perceptions.

The god of these billions of universes is doing science. He refers to his experiments as “vitally important biological research using animal models.” The other gods whisper “animal cruelty” behind his back. There are papers and conferences.


Buy it at amazon.com/author/terencekuch: See/Saw. In this novel from Ink Smith Publishing, you can sell your memories for cash. And regret it.
