a parallel universe

london 2.03pm 13.6C sunny bluesky thursday 2016

not for the first time do i feel i am living in a parallel universe where there is no fog, there is blue sky and sunny day.

the news i read online says there has been fog today , so bad that it stops departures from airports (but not arrivals, isn’t that strange? but that is what applies in that alternate universe). whereas here i am, no fog, blue sky in fact for the 2nd consecutive day. not a cloud in the sky. how come? of course the rational explanation is that the fog is early in the morning, when i am sound asleep. haha.

but i sometimes wonder whether our souls can slot ourselves into a universe of its own choosing , one where our lives are just what we want, amongst all the parallel universes there are…  where other lives and  events may be go haywire, but does not really become personal and impinge on our lives.

it might be a fanciful way of looking at things. but if u consider that there is a trend of thought which says u call for what u wish… then there might be a universe where u really live the life you want, or rather your soul wants, and it might be in a universe where hitler won the war, where things are very different from what they are. maybe even there is no battle of hastings, or it was won by harold, and the england we have now is very different. i dont think many realise how big a game changer is william the conquerer’s invasion of england. hmm, i suppose it would make for a historical novel.

this universe i am in has the internet and is very mechanical , by which i mean hardware and software… rather than mental , mind control and all that. we seem to have moved from wielding the power of the mind and relied on mechanical stuff to get things done. so we rely on planes to fly instead of just levitating ourselves. anyway it is just me wondering , or fantasising …

perhaps i m thinking of these because i have been reading terry pratchett and his world vision in his books about the discworld. an entirely different universe.  i got three books of his.

finished the light fantastic and saw in my tv guide that there is a tv adaptation of it, along with the first book, the colour of magic. i saw the first part yesterday on pick tv, and today the concluding part will be shown at 5pm.  so it is rather nice to see a visual presentation of what a director thinks it should look like. reading the wiki entry, it is the first time i realise these are the two books that started the series of his discworld.

authors have been creating alternate universes all the time, it seems.

 added 12.22pm friday 30.12.16 4.1C foggy . i see another terry pratchett film , going postal,on pick tv today. i googled it and found out that sky has been adapting books to films and it has done three of terry pratchatt’s disc world books. and they are now being shown on pick tv which is on freeview. though i think the books are better.
