I have one of the most fascinating professions of the multiverse: the historian of the multicosmos as we also call it, or, in other words, of all the infinite stories of all the possible worlds of the whole multiverse, so as you will understand, in our civilization, the most advanced so far discovered in all known universes and the only one capable of traveling among them, boredom is the least of our problems, but let me introduce myself, my name is Ttereve and I am in charge of discovering the laws that govern the multicosmos and civilizations that they inhabit it, I try to discover some constant between the cultures that are reflected as a mirror image of multiple realities.
I will begin by telling you the story of a flicker in time of a particle of stellar dust that its inhabitants call Earth, a world with an industrial development on the verge of environmental collapse due to gases emitted into its tenuous atmosphere and which are heating up its planet. According to historical records, everything began with the invention of internal combustion engines powered by fossil fuels. Taking this world as a model and contrasting it with one of its multiple copies, it is surprising to see, for example, the path followed by, what we'll call, Earth B, a world where the industrial age was also invented and fossil fuels started to be used, but as a result of the publication of a scientist named Suinehrra began a change to clean energy and today his society is free of any danger of extinction and with its fresh atmosphere and oceans without excess CO2 and also with a hopeful future. In contrast, the fate of Earth C could not be more terrible. The world of this multicosmos had developed science and technology 2 thousand years earlier, in classical Greece and started its industrial revolution shortly thereafter, extracting every single reserve of oil and unleashing a global warming that devastated almost all life on earth. It was a massive extinction, including the thinking beings of this planet, who called themselves human. Today, only ruins of their majestic constructions bear witness to their ancient greatness.
The historical derivations of just this planet from the multicosmos are enough to understand, contrasting it with other worlds, that there is a constant inflection for each story of intelligent life in our multiverse. Take the case of the planet Zook in another cosmos of the multicosmos. Here, a civilization has expanded throughout its galaxy and entered in contact with other space civilizations after overcoming a religious crisis in which 2 groups of this society came into conflict: the Truis and the Gasis. The first faction, promoters of spatial technological development and the second faction, a fundamentalist group that thought that traveling to space was the equivalent of defiling the dwelling place of God. In the end, the winning side was that of the Truis. In contrast, Zook B is a world dominated by superstition and fear, where its inhabitants live under the control of the Gasis who have become the greatest blasphemy to even think of traveling to the stars. The case of Zook C highlights how the bifurcations in the history of the worlds cause great changes depending on the direction taken, because now, it is a cruel and destructive galactic empire, after the triumph of a faction of the Gasis that realized the potential of space exploration to conquer their world and take their ideas of superstition to blood and fire throughout their galaxy.
In my studies of the cultures of the multicosmos, I have found that, not only the events of the intelligent creatures define the future of each culture, but also cataclysmic and insignificant natural events, being for me one of the most intriguing cases, returning to the planet called Earth, the accidental impact of an asteroid on its surface 65 million years before the development of its great technological civilization. The asteroid exterminated 75 percent of life forms and opened the way for the emergence of a group of biped mammals that evolved into creatures with a highly developed intelligence and self-named Homo Sapiens Sapiens. In Earth D the contrast could not be greater, because in that multicosmos the asteroid diverted its course of impact, allowing the evolution of a group of reptiles that developed intelligence and a great technology that has taken them to the confines of their galaxy, colonizing each planet suitable for the life they find in their interstellar exploration trips.
In Earth E, things can not be more boring, at least from the point of view of a historian of universes like me, since here evolution seems to have stalled since the appearance of their dinosaurs that still graze and hunt for their forests and meadows as they have done for the last almost 300 million years.
I must confess a certain sadness for the worlds and cosmos I study, Because entire universes are erased when, in a inexorably way, they come to an end with its thermal death, becoming a homogeneous soup without energy, after being creators of countless universes. But for each universe that dies, many more are born and with them endless stories to tell and study because there are only two possibilities: yes or no, two options for the creation of the mysterious multiverse that we inhabit.
