Alternate Dimensions?

Tonight I read something strange that could really get your imagination going. It was just a simple meme, but I tend to overthink about the things that spark my creative side. It went something like this:

“What if there are multiple yous living in alternate dimensions and your dreams are you viewing what your other selves are doing.” (I’m not sure who said this. I only know it’s a meme somewhere.)

That really makes you wonder sometimes.

If by some totally random chance this is true, I don’t know if I should feel sorry or be completely jealous of my other mes. Some of them live crazy, exciting lives, while others are constantly fighting to get away from the bad guys. Of course, I’d be all over the me that has the super powers and saves the human race from total destruction. Then again, I wouldn’t mind being the bad guy who takes over the world. (Just kidding!)

I suppose it’s statements like this one that really works at my imagination and drives me to write even more. I live through my characters and let them do the risky events that keep them alive and most of the time there are a lot of bad guys chasing after them. In all honestly, I don’t think I’d last a day with the other mes in my head. I’d be on the ground, in the fetal position, waiting for it all to be over with.

I think I’ll stick with writing instead!

How my mind wonders…

So, Falling Skies is one of my favorite shows on tv right now. I just love the apocalyptic survival genre and this alien invasion they’ve got going on just keeps me on the edge of my seat. I tell at the characters and really get into it and get super mad when they don’t listen to me. But, watching this show makes me wonder about things.

Like if that were to really happen and humans eventually found a way to defeat the aliens and get life back in order, what would that history text book look like? It makes you wonder how the human race would go about explaining something as unbelievable as an alien invasion or a zombie apocalypse or some other crazy disaster that wipes out a good majority of the population. Would the humans even share that part of our history with the future generations or would we keep it a secret because it of how unbelievable it seems?

I guess, being a writer of the horror and suspense genre has my mind wondering these weird things. I am very glad to know that I am definitely not the only person out there who also questions things like this. I only hope that if there ever is an invasion or zombie apocalypse, that I’m not here to see it all go down.
