Suzie Tremblar’s Quantum Could’ve Beens
I had this dream once: I woke up and went about doing the usual morning stuff until I realised that I wasn’t in my own room. It was very similar to my bedroom except that the walls were red and my headboard was facing the wrong direction. I thought that I must still be dreaming so I decided to go back to bed and hopefully wake up in the right place. When I woke up a few seconds later, I found myself in yet another room that was startlingly similar but also not quite like my own. This went on and on until I began to despair if I would ever wake up to my own familiar existence. When I finally did, I couldn’t help but wonder what if I’d just gone along with it? What if I’d chosen instead to wake up in one of the other lives I’d been given such a tantalizing (and terrifying) glimpse of?
This of course has nothing to do with Quantum Physics, but if you want to watch the programme that inspired this strip, you can see parts of it on Youtube or read the transcript of the show on the Elegant Universe website.
