    i'd personally be very concerned about how difficult it would then become to make a mark on a world not only populated by people who will be too distracted with making their own mark but then also who will be actively trying to make their own at the same or higher rate of effort.

    if you were told that you had a year to live, in relatively good health (ie. not depreciating as with an illness or condition), you'd be amazed what you can achieve if you have no regard for how burnt out you'd be in 20 years.

    ...then add to that the amount of people who would dally with the idea of murder or genocide given the total lack of threat of incarceration or even capital punishment. scary thought.

    What I mean is the spectrum of "good" and "bad" varies largely. If the spectrum was very shallow either side, or in fact good and bad did not exist at all and all we had was neutrality, what kind of a world would we live in? I'd be interested to hear what you think.

    Also, it's rhetorical as it is impossible to answer but just for shits and giggles: if there was a parallel universe for every single variable in history since the big bang, how many would exist by now?

    ∞ is the boring answer.

    I took the original question to be a banking one. If there wasn't much difference between + and -, the answer would be "global financial meltdown." Wait a minute... we live in that universe already.

    The parallel universes thing, there's clearly as many parallel universes as there were episodes of "Sliders." Including the one where all the men are wiped out and they find the heroes because they left the toilet seat up.

    Makes me laugh when we discover something new about space, gravity etc and scientists have to basically say 'yeah...so it turns out shit desn't work how he thought it did'. Considering how frequently that happens, it makes me wonder whats going to be possible when we finally are able to grasp it.

    Because what you wrote isn't exact, it's a decimal estimation.
