Some people say that parallel universes exist, and some contend that every possible difference can be found in each, so that the number of such universes is or might be infinite.
Below are some examples of how such a universe might develop. I am asking the reader to read each one and try to think about each scenario for at least 10 seconds; you can dwell on it longer if you like.
In each of these settings, I am giving you at least one story. Perhaps you can write it and publish it; I would love to read it.
- The Great Flood brings Noah to the New World, and this becomes the birthplace of Judaism. Great conflicts arise when the Central Continent ideas of sacrifice clash with the Jewish concepts; the belief of a ”very wise person who will end the warring” comes to be, and Jesus is born in Holyrood, Kansas.
- The Roman Empire does not collapse and goes on to discover and conquer the New World. When they see the pyramids of the ancient Westerners, they think they are in Egypt, and they call the natives Egyptians. In their efforts to flee from the Romans, the natives take to the oceans and arrive in Europe; over time, they learn where the Roman ruler lives and they take him down.
- Jesus Christ is accepted from the beginning by the Romans and the Jews and everyone else; and the entire Eastern hemisphere becomes Christian around the year 50. Religious beliefs hold back scientific research and development, and explorers from the Western Hemisphere discover the Eastern.
- Regardless of who discovers the New World, the natives overcome the Europeans and forever ban them. However, there are many half-breeds, and this becomes an ongoing issue of contention and fanaticism.
- Lincoln is assassinated immediately after he is elected. The South is defeated, but they are granted secession from the Union. Slavery continues into the 1960s, when the blacks and the half-breeds are able to overcome by sheer numbers; they exile and ban all white people from the CSA. For a long time, North America comes to be known as the ”black and white continent.”
- The A-bombs dropped on Japan turn out to be duds; the Japanese quickly analyze and fix the problem, and then they threaten the United States with the bomb.
- Hitler is successful in taking over the world. Nazi scientists are given free reign to research and experiment. After many horrific experiments and failures, they create a grotesque and monstrous ”superhuman,” an indestructible creature of supreme intelligence — so intelligent that it sees the lack of logic in Nazism, and it becomes Nazism’s nemesis and the savior of the people.
- The Jews fight back during the Holocaust and are able to overcome and free themselves, and they become an important ally in defeating Hitler. But they are forever embittered toward the rest of the world, because no one came to their rescue. They take to living in their own communities, refusing to share their research and development and accepting nothing from the outside world.
- Superior intellect becomes inherent in lepers in the late 16th century, but the general public is prejudiced of them and ignores, discredits, and rejects their input on overall issues. Within their own communities of exile, the lepers flourish with inventions and discoveries; eventually, they have to force wisdom on the ignorant populations of the world, in order to prevent further damage to the planet.
- Babies are born fully cognizant and knowledgeable, they lose this cognizance and knowledge by their late teens, and they run the everyday world by telling empty-minded adults what to do, when, and how.
