Many-worlds is a postulate of quantum mechanics that asserts the objective reality of the universal wavefunction, but denies the reality of wavefunction collapse, which implies that all possible alternative histories and futures are real —each representing an actual "world" (or "universe").
Can someone help me make sense of this jibberish?
Sounds like the storylines in my head, if I think about it. I can take my MC down different paths, or retrace and try another. I'm sure most writers will agree that it's a really neat feeling. However, I'm more interested in the Pandora/Narnia type parallel universe for my novel.
I have a way for my MC to occassionally eavesdrop between the parallel universes, because I want the reader to keep track of time and consequence. But is it necessary? I wonder... Storyline A didn't need storyline B, until I created the opportunity. Yet I have three saved versions of my novel, so they do exists sided by side on my bookshelf.
Just babbling today...
