    Particle Drift?

    I'm not certain that's what it was called.

    A few years back I read a [strike]theory[/strike] hypothesis that goes something like this:

    If there are parallel Universes, then it could be reasonable to assume that the unfolding of each Universe would be pretty much copies of the first one. Which means you exist in each universe, only the time would vary.

    All living things are made up of particles, and particles contain information about the organism they come from.

    When an organism dies some of the particles release from the body. Some, or perhaps many of the particles are capable of entering into other universes. Some find the copy of the organism they came from and the information the particle possesses passes onto the organism's copy.

    This could account for many of what we consider mysteries, or to what some attribute to a higher power. For example, this could account for deja vu, or say, inexplicably knowing something was going to happen before it did. It could also be why some believe in a soul.

    It's assumed that the particles don't have any defined purpose in doing what they do, but that this process is merely a part of what life is and does.

    I will award you an unlimited budget and set up a new department at Harvard to research on your behalf.

    In exchange, you have to present the thread with a proposal on how your new department will test whether this mechanism exists in the real world.

    Where would you like to start.

    I don't know if I can do that.

    I don't think we don't know whether or not there are parallel universes, so rather than looking for particles departing our universe we'd need to identify the incoming particles and somehow distinguish them from the departing particles. Since the organisms are dead it's doubtful we'd find incoming particles to a dead organism, we should however find particles, if detectable, exiting the body.

    Do you have a method for detecting these kinds of particles?

    Sorry......................I lost interest shortly after the first "If"..............it was the "could be reasonable to assume" part that did it.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Okay. So it's not a theory. Can we call it a hypothesis though? Or am I forced to go with hunch?

    Pity. You were the one sacred catch too.

    As it turns out it is a theory of Robert Lanza's called Biocentrism.

    As far as I can tell, Lanza is not known as any type of wack-a-doodle either.

    Well, any argument that starts with a reference to the general assumption of a flat earth in the 15th century loses me fairly quickly.

    It could also explain the so called "Mandela effect"
