Do you ever mess up?
Make decisions that clearly aren’t a good idea?
Wish you could take back what you did?
I know you have. I have too. Because we’re humans. With all the beauty, ugliness, stupidity, and genius that comes with it.
Entropy dictates we can’t go back in time. We can’t change what we already did. The forward motion of our lives was set up moments after the Big Bang. Or so they say.
Entropy also says we’re going to die. Heavy, I know. But that’s not what most people are scared of. Not death, but dying. Pain. And how our loved ones will feel when we’re gone.
You’re still here. Any mistakes you’ve made weren’t the end result of you. Hopefully you have people in your life that can listen to you when you’re down. Or help you get back on your feet.
But perhaps we can make our own rules.
If the universe is in fact infinite, that could mean a startling conclusion: there’s another You out there.
In an infinitely large universe, each separate region with a cosmic horizon, can only have finite configurations of particles. These regions with finite configurations will eventually repeat.
There might be another You out there. Make sure the one reading this has a good life.
