Tales from the Multiverse: Infinite Alter Egos, Parallel Universes, and Other Disconcerting Astrophysical Predictions

I explore various ideas related to parallel universes, including physical realities with identical copies of you that exist only 10(1029) meters away. To many, the idea of not just a solitary universe, but a multiverse, is strange and implausible. Yet, the predictions of such universes arise from accepted cosmological models and experimentally-verified physics. The theory of the multiverse is no longer simply speculative physics, and it might very well describe the reality in which our infinite selves dwell.
