Here’s a secret the scientific community doesn’t want you to know: It’s not as hard as you might think to access the multiverse and pull whatever you want from a parallel world. It just takes a little bit of concentration. So let’s put aside those boring warnings about “abusing the natural laws of physics” and “unleashing a dangerous amount of world-ending calamitrons” and explore how you can use the multiverse to your advantage.
Meals to Remember
Let’s say your parents had another long day at work and you’re facing a dinner of microwaved meatloaf and frozen peas. Odds are, there’s another universe out there where Dad is a five-star chef who’s more than happy to whip up the greatest meal of your life on a moment’s notice. Be wary, though: nothing brings out other parasitical relatives from across the multiverse like free food.
One-Upping the Local Bully
There are several standard ways to stand up to someone who’s giving you trouble. But if you really want to think outside the box, follow the example of Sal Vidón and pull something completely unexpected—like a raw, bloody, headless chicken—out of thin air to place inside their locker. Trust us, the look on their face will be worth it. And the existential trauma will be an added bonus.
Fudging Your Grades
So maybe you didn’t bring your A-game to trigonometry this semester. It happens. Thankfully, there’s a parallel world where you’re a math genius. And in another, you’re a history buff. In yet another, a science whiz. Maybe you could all form a study group. Just keep in mind that for every star student there’s alternate version of yourself who will be more than happy to wedgie all you nerds.
Gaining a New Perspective
With the multiverse at your fingertips, the potential for personal growth is endless. You can get wardrobe tips from a universe with a much better fashion sense, or take a class to learn a language that doesn’t exist on our earth. But relying too much on other worlds could lead you to forget just how big our own is. Simply by reaching out and getting to know someone new, especially someone from a different background or culture, you may be surprised by how much you can learn about the planet right under your feet.
