The Quantum Parellelograph
by Patrick Stevenson-Keating
The Quantum Parellelograph is an exploratory piece examining the science and philosophy of Oxford professor David Deutsch’s parallel universe theory and the earlier work of professor Hugh Everett. Stevenson-Keating explains that “there might be infinite copies of ourselves within multiple universes.”
Harnessing the Internet and basic personal information, the simulation machine can be dialed in to a customizable alternate reality. The user can calibrate the machine according to the desired “distance” from one’s real life, pushing a button to receive a printed receipt outlining their hypothetical life in a parallel universe. We decided to go deep in our tinkering, and received a printout telling us that “in 20 years’ time Richard Prime may not be born yet.”
To whom this may concern: I would like you to know that I am deeply and madly in love with yous. And I think about how thankful I am every night to know yous.
I love the sponge holders.
