Some Trippy Thoughts

     Last week I was gushing about the wonderful book by Claire North, The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August.  Although mentioned in the book only briefly, I think it explores the concept of parallel universes.  I'm no physicist, but my understanding of this is that every possibility creates a new reality, a new universe.  So, if I choose to go left on Tuesday at 10:17 a.m. in one life, and choose to go right in another version of that life, that creates two parallel universes.  At least, that's my understanding of it.

     Then, it struck me -- aren't the idea of Twin Souls also a form of parallel universes?  In this life, I choose to be female, while another part of my essential soul chooses to be male (or, at least, not the same female) and live at the same time in history.

     And if we are just drops of one ocean, aren't each one of us a part of a greater Soul which chooses to be male here and female there and living in this country or that country, at this time or another . . . In other words, aren't we all having parallel life experiences, as part of this greater Soul?  Whoo, trippy.
