I didn't know exactly where to place this so I thought this would fit best.

Does anyone think it's possible that in an other dimension or universe, our works of fiction are real? Maybe there's a world where the events of Harry Potter took place exactly as J.K. Rowling wrote them, or your favorite video game world is real. Is it possible, that that everything in an other universe looks like what we know to be animated? Is there a world where Looney Tunes characters roam freely and preform physics shattering stunts? It's all just something I like to think about.

It is.....possible.

Try reading Robert Heinlein's "The Number of the Beast", or any of Micheal Moorcock's Eternal Champion books.  In fact, I think it was he who coined the term "multiverse".


And welcome to UM!

No I don't think it is possible. Multiverse does not mean everything is possible.

Until we can disprove it, it is a possibilty.  Theoretically, it is possible.

Sure..I'd love it if there was a possibility that the worlds we see in our fiction represent a reality elsewhere.
However so far there is nothing to suggest this scenario is real.

But then again the universe is infinite so..maybe.

But again, liking an idea doesn't necessarily make it true.

i doubt it, though i have no science background whatsoever. it's a neat idea, though

although... if we take it as true, would it be that we are literally creating universes as we imagine them, or that every possible imagined universe existed before it was even imagined? and if it's the first, are some science fiction authors guilty of genocide?

If the universe or the multiverse is populated with enough universes, I suppose this could happen. I've always thought that there is a probability that my Alien fictional characters do exist somewhere. I don't know where I got the idea of them from, or why I draw them as they are, except that perhaps every consciousness is connected in some way.

Perhaps there is some afinity between myself and these (real/fictional) Aliens, and this is the reason the thought of them came into my mind.

Some metaphysical/philosophical ideas say that if something is thought up, or imagined, it has been created. In this case, infinite things exist once created, all with their own associated worlds. In one way, we already know this is true. The world was made in someone's mind, and exists there whenever someone thinks of it, or reads about it.

The interesting thing, though, if that is correct, is that each person has their own interpretation of that imaginary world, and will then create their own version of it. Infinite worlds all based on one original world. This means all have their own creation of the world, and maybe all of those collectively form a version of that world.

This is kind of how I imagine this world being constantly created. Infinite personal versions of a world, all correct and true in their own right, but all forming to make a collective version of a world: which is the one we all know and love/hate, depending on your outlook.

Big fan of "Through the Wormhole" here and as anyone who watches the show has seen, conventional wisdom now is that there may be more than one universe out there, if you can imagine that! I have heard from other sources now too the same thinking. Time will tell I guess.

Perhaps we are fictional characters created in some Alien mind.

There is, based on what I read here and there, a theory that implies that all minds and worlds are somehow connected to one another like some sort of huge spider web. It had been theorized that our ideas are at least in part influenced by it all.

Furthermore I recall reading something that our particular affinities may act as a sort of beacon that attracts certain "frequencies" pertaining to any worlds that harbor beings and conditions that are compatible.
Like I said, it is just a theory.

It would be nice if the idea were true or held at least some morsel of merit then I wouldn't feel quite so lonely but then again, liking an idea doesn't make it true.
