why did polyphemus go to prom with odysseus?
because nobody asked him
Ok very recently me and a few friends of mine came up with the Idea of a game of thrones vlog!
if you wanna take part please fill out this quick application: https://www.surveyplanet.com/survey/3c0bd09cd429a64581ce32f2b155ff47
You do not have to be on camera at all, and can still take part in it! You don’t have to impress anyone with a survey, you just need to tell us a little about you! Now, I’ll list characters that have been taken underneither and leave your ask open becasue I will notify you if you have been chosen! it will take a while for the project to take off, so don’t be surprised if you are not asked to do anything stright away. If you do not want to take part, please signal boost this!
And for legal reasons I thought it would be a good idea to stress that I do not own anything game of thrones realated, in material. Good luck! and any questions, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Yes but if someone is sealed in a steel cylinder in Times Square, wouldn’t that make the inside of the cylinder that person's entire world? And since Times Square is outside the cylinder and therefore not part of that world, does it ‘exist’ in the same reality as the person? Is Times Square ‘real’ for them, even if they are real for Times Square? (and on a totally different topic is your askbox an Atlantis reference?)
It depends on what you mean by a person’s entire world. The inability to experience something doesn’t exclude it from a person’s reality. We can’t experience the electrical signals in the air, but they are still there. A person who can’t see color doesn’t mean that color isn’t real. And if someone opened the cylinder, does their reality expand? Or was it always that large to begin with?
Which also raises another point because its very likely that we can’t ever access beyond our universe (like the cylinder in the metaphor). So does that mean that the multiverse doesn’t exist on principal? (Except I think that we think the multiverse b/c of its effects on the observable universe but idk). Or what if something banged against the cylinder. Would that expand their universe?
(And it is, but it was unintentional actually!)
[also I love this conversation and I’m so glad that you’re so civil about this (assuming you’re the same anon)]
psht…hey kid…. u wanna buy some…. baguettes
i’m on mobile but please tell me that’s the gif of javert staring out the window
#WHEN IT COMES TO PORTRAYAL OF A HEALTHY LOVELY RELATIONSHIP IN AN ANIMATED FEATURE, PEOPLE SHOULD WATCH HTTYD2 AND PAY GOOD ATTENTION TO HOW BEAUTIFULLY DREAMWORKS DISPLAYS A NATURAL COUPLE AND LEARN THAT NORMAL COUPLE BODY LANGUAGE AND LITTLE GLANCES AND TOUCHES AND SHOWING HOW INTIMATE AND COMFORTABLE THEY ARE AROUND EACH OTHER AND HOW THEY HAVE PERSONAL CONVERSATIONS ABOUT FUTURE FAR OUTWEIGHS KISSING AND EYE-SCREWING AND SINGING SILLY SONGS AND CONSTANTLY TRYING TO FORCE THEIR LOVE STORY ON THE AUDIENCE BY CLICHE SCENES AND DIALOGUES AND TRYING WAY TOO HARD TO MAKE THE COUPLE BELIEVABLE EVEN THOUGH THEY HARDLY KNOW EACH OTHER PLEASE GIVE US MORE ASTRID AND HICCUP
(Part 1) On the one hand, I understand your reasoning that if the theoretical multiverse is real, it can’t just be not real in some places. On the other hand, I think it’s important to examine how we define real. There may be some universes that can access the multiverse and use it as an in between place to access other universes, sort of like the wood between the worlds in the Chronicles of Narnia or the mountain place that Christopher uses in the Chrestomanci Chronicles.
(Part 2) In these universes, the multiverse would be considered an objective, observable, accessible, documented reality. There could also be universes that were totally closed off from the multiverse. The inhabitants of these universes would have a harder time producing evidence that the multiverse is a reality, so it would only be considered a theory. As far as I can tell, there is at least one universe where this is the case and we are in it.
Ok this is a super good point (even though I don’t understand either of those references). But just because we can’t directly experience or observe something (ex: the Higgs Field), doesn’t make it not real. Like a person in a steel cylinder placed in Times Square has no knowledge of what’s outside, but Times Square is still out there. So even if they can’t prove it or access it, its still true. Though this could easily be debated because of the confusing nature of truth. So there is absolutely a universe where the theory of the multiverse doesn’t exist or where the people in it have no idea that the multiverse might exist (because of the infinite nature of the universes).
It never fails to crack me up that the first time I posted this, half of my followers thought this was a picture of a large caterpillar :’)
HOLY SHIT I THOUGHT IT WAS TOO UNTIL I READ THE COMMENT
so i was making a gif of this scene and i saw this screen cap…
look at Steve’s face…
Selfies of the Caribbean
This is so important
please explain the multiverse/universe thing? I'm not sure i'll understand everything but i'm fascinated :)
Ok so our universe exists in a way. It has rules and laws (the laws of physics) that let things exist in it the way they do. It doesn’t really have a definable edge, but it is not infinitely large (its a little confusing but stay with me here).
Everything from here on will be multiverse theory, and right now, its jsut that, a theory. But it makes sense due to evidence that I can’t remember right now. The multiverse theory states that outside of our universe, there is something larger: the multiverse. In the multiverse there are other universes sorta floating around. There are an infinite number of universes in it. Each one has different rules and laws. Some are likely built in a way that don’t even allow matter to exist.
That post was saying that in some universes, since there are an infinite number of them with different rules, there is one where the multiverse isn’t true. This is just my speculation from here on, but this doesn’t really make much sense because the multiverse presumably has its own rules that the universes can’t break because they all exist inside the multiverse (although we can’t really know them because they have to be the case in our universe and we don’t have access to other universes to compare rules).
Although as of right now, multiverse theory is kinda useless because its unlikely we will ever be able to leave our universe. That would make it impossible to get to any of the other universes and to get the real information about them.
