Ok so lets say youíve been living as yourself through alternative lives for over 100 years of non linear time. Would you believe me? Any thoughts on the meaning? Almost like a time loop with a fixed start date but indeterminate ending and then repeat.

It sounds like an interesting premise for a science fiction book.

All right.

Believe what? You said 'let's say' - that's a hypothetical. You don't follow "Let's say you're traveling and near-luminal speed to Tau Ceti!" with "Do you believe me?".

The meaning of what? It's a hypothetical!

That's some needed clarification. But how are we to believe a hypothetical? And how can there be some meaning in a hypothetical of your creation?

It was very interesting, indeed. I plan to get around to reading it again someday.
[It's really fantasy, though, and not science fiction]

How does it end up being so many years? Is that due to time-jumps or is time accelerated within some alternate lives, or both?

Ok I worded it very poorly. Not meant to be taken in the hypothetical sense. More to be taken as nervously sharing crazy story of my own life.

It means living 10 years and then loop back to starting point. Say it all started in 2008. Live 10 years till 2018. Reboot. Start in 2008 again - maybe live 5 years. Back to 2008. Repeat many times over. Thatís pretty much my life.

Boy, when I don't wanna bite...who knows that every atom and every cell holds the entire Universe in itself...
like a piece of a holographic bookmark holds the entire 'elephant'...you know that something
has not not been explained well.
Me, who knows this is all a dream...and there is no space or time...

Why not start from the beginning?

Have you seen the movie ďDay After Tomorrow.Ē It has a time-reboot theme. Not years at a time, but days.

Age will catch up to you soon enough. Trust me. And when it does you will long for a return to the same old same old days.
