or not, as the case may be, if you are too young, in which case your mother should know.
Point of the post? Based on my most recent thought track concerning the Multiverse, a theory reluctantly swallowed by most scientists, positivists choking on the fact that they can't quite chuck it out the window along with the sinful suggestion that we might have a soul. Whatever our life form is, does, means or consists of, if there's a Multiverse we better get a grip of what it can do. Because it leaves us with a lot of options on how we handle Time.

Who am I, and who are you, really? And how many versions of us do we get to choose from? Trying to catch the wave of what others want only seems to get a body into hot water. Optimising ourselves seems to be the way forward, but actually doing that - finding the key to the optimisation - well, isn't it just more trouble than thinking about it is worth?

"Spacetime" has become a proper word in its own right, seamlessly and silently slipping into common scientific language without making a song and dance about it, not really announcing its presence in the vocabulary but stamping its authority over the whole of What Is without giving too much away about depth of meaning. While we live in our separate, definable spacetimes, there's mileage in seeing how much we can gain from sharing a focused point of view.
