The Disproof (and Proof) of Everything


Since the beginning of time, men (I'm speaking of the human
race, this is not sexist in anyway because women are
included in this too) have pondered our existence and
purpose, as well as the nature of the world we live in.
This is perhaps the single most time consuming thought we
ever have for most people live their entire lifetimes
without finding the answer or even coming close to one. I
myself have pondered this question for most of my life,
until recently when I used some odd (but logical) logic to
come up with a strange conclusion: Nothing exists, and
everything exists, for everything is possible all at the
same time. Now, by now the reader of this paper is
thinking "How is this possible?" or "This guy should be
locked up!". Therefore, I plan to explain how I reached
this conclusion in this paper. However, I must give fair
warning, that some of the logic I used is strange and
complex. If you have any doubts about your mental health,
or are unsure of your capacities and limitations in any
way, please do not read this, or at least do not take it
seriously. For those of you who feel you can handle this,
read on. Now, let us start at the most logical place to
begin, the beginning. What is reality? Well, there are
many explanations and theories about this, but I based mine
on what I can observe and how I perceive things as a whole.
Reality, as we know it seems to be made up of various
dimensions. Most people will say reality is three
dimensional, but it's really more than that. Time is often
considered a fourth dimension, and some people say that
there are at least eight known dimensions, possibly as many
as thirty. However, it will be easier to start with
dimensions from the ground up. Let us start with zero
dimensions. A zero dimensional reality is a point. It does
not extend in any direction, it is one point, there are no
alternatives at all. This is the only type of reality in
which a "fact" as we know it really exists. It either is or
it isn't. Now, try to imagine a line. Well, there are
several types of lines. There are infinite lines, which
extend in both directions forever, and lines with one
limit, and lines with two limits. Infinity with limits is
still infinity. Suppose the line is limited, and is a
certain length, not extending forever. This is a one
dimensional reality, you can go one way, or the other. Now,
how many points (zero dimensional realities) are on the
line? Infinite. No matter how short the line is, there's
always an infinite number of points. Ok, now on to two
dimensions. Two dimensional realities are planes. They're
flat level surfaces. How many lines are on a plane?
Infinite. So, a two dimensional reality is infinity squared
zero dimensional realities. Likewise, three dimensions is
an infinite number of planes, and four is an infinite
number of three dimensional realities. Therefore, there are
somewhere between infinity to the 8th and infinity to the
30th zero dimensional realities in our universe. What is
infinity good for? Now that is a good question. What does
a universe do with infinite realities? It fills them up.
Now, this means to fill up infinite realities, you must
have infinite possibilities. So, there are an infinite
number of realities in which an event happens, and an
infinite number in which it doesn't happen. This is true of
every event. The reason we don't perceive it this way, is
because our perception is limited. For instance, we do not
perceive time as a dimension like height and length and
width. This is because we are moving along time in one
direction, and cannot sense changes in it. Therefore,
events do not just happen for one instant, we only perceive
them for one instant as we move along the positive time
axis. Therefore everything that ever happened, and
everything that will still exists, we just don't see it.
So, one can conclude that it is reasonable that we may jump
from one reality to another as we move along time.
Therefore, nothing is a fact, whether it has happened, is
happening, or will happen. Everything is just an expression
of probability with no one or zero value. So, there is such
a thing as infinite improbability, and infinite
probability. But not definite probability and definite
improbability. So, the probability of an event occurring is
1/infinity to 1-1/infinity. What does infinite
improbability and infinite probability imply? Well,
infinite improbability and infinite probability are found
when infinite possibilities are present. If I toss a six
sided standard die in the air, what is the probability that
it will come up with six dots on top? Well, most people
will immediately say 1/6. This is not true. Why? Because
when you calculate probability as we are taught, we
immediately rule out the improbable, but not impossible
outcomes. It is possible that the die will be destroyed by
say a laser before it lands, or a meteor may pass by the
earth and disrupt gravity, causing the die to fly into
orbit, or the laws of physics may change for an instant
causing who knows what to happen. The point is, there are
an infinite number of things that could possibly happen,
and therefore an probability and improbability factor which
includes improbability and probability factors from other
events happening. Therefore something can be improbable but
not impossible. This may help to explain quantum physics,
where things behave in strange ways they should not, at
least not by the laws of physics as we know them. It may
be, that when examining things on the quantum scale, we are
actually observing the behavior of particles as we shift
from one reality to another where the laws of physics are
slightly different in each. Therefore, nothing has to
behave the same way all the time. As soon as you're not
watching it, it could do something entirely different. 
What about all those theories and formulas people have come
up with? Well, when someone creates a theory or formula
to explain something, they're giving you something that
gives an approximate description of that event. Theories
and formulas are never 100% perfect. For example, if you
graph the behavior of an object as it moves, and you write
an equation to explain the graph that you see, you do not
take into account behavior outside that range of the graph.
There may be subtle changes that would wreak havoc with
your equations if you only knew about them. But you don't.
Why? Because it's impossible to graph something for an
infinite amount of time with infinite detail. For example,
Newton's theories are pretty good, the held up when we went
to the moon. However, over large (interstellar and
intergalactic) distances, they won't be perfect. Also,
flaws in them become more apparent as you approach the
speed of light, and they're only reasonably correct up to
about 80% the speed of light. Einstein was even closer. His
theories on relativity are very precise, and they work
well, but they are still probably flawed at some point.
Chaos theory may be even closer, but since it is generated
by people and machines made by people, it won't be perfect.
In short, our chaos is really too structured to explain the
structure of the universe, which is chaotic. What about
paradox? Well, paradox deals with a conflict in events. For
instance, it has been theorized that time travel is
possible. This presents the question of "What if someone
goes back and changes something?", and more importantly,
"What if they mess up and prevent their own birth? How will
they ever travel back in time to do it?". Well, this is the
classic example of paradox. Now, based on the model of
reality described so far, how would we explain what happens
with a paradox. Well, if we constantly move along the
positive time axis, and there are an infinite number of
divergences or "forks in the road" for each event, then it
is logical to assume that one who goes back along the time
axis and alters an event will follow a different pathway
then they did the first time around. Therefore, a paradox
will is not likely to destroy the universe, rather, you
would find yourself in a reality that changed from the
point at which you altered it. Therefore, this means
reality can even loop back on itself, and still function
just fine. There would merely be another set of infinite
realities coexisting with the original set, with the
defining event being your alteration of another event. 
How does all this apply to everyday life, and what does it
all mean to us? This is probably the most important
question of all. What does it all mean; how does it apply
to me. Well, from what we have seen, our chaos is too
logical to explain the logic of a reality that is chaotic.
Also, nothing is impossible, some things are merely more
improbable than others. Therefore, reality is most likely
going to be exactly as how you perceive it. So, basically,
nothing is definite at all. So, what should one do with
one's life in such a strange reality? Well, the only answer
I could come up with is: Whatever you want. It seems that
the point of life is not to understand your own life, or
purpose, or the nature of things, it's to have as much fun
as you possibly can while you can still have it. Now, I
know somewhere out there, someone is thinking "Well what if
I think it's fun to go out and murder people or
something?". Well, the answer to why people don't do this,
is simple, it's not fun. How so? Well, you must consider
tradeoffs. What's fun now usually doesn't lead to things
that are much fun later. For instance, if you kill someone,
it may be fun, but I don't think one would find
imprisonment or a death penalty fun at all. It may be fun
to drop out of school and do whatever you want, but in a
few years when you can't get a job and don't have enough
money to go anywhere or do anything, you won't be so happy.
Therefore, it is best to do what you like, but consider the
consequences and alternatives first. So, morals don't
really exist because people know the difference between
right and wrong or because some omnipotent creator dictated
our lifestyle to us, but because the let the most people
enjoy themselves at one time. So, it's basically similar to
any animal's response to a positive stimulus, however our
powers of abstract concepts and reasoning, and critical
thinking allow us to determine what is fun now, and will
still allow us to have fun later. So, in the end, people
will do what they like most, while still allowing others to
do what they like most, and eventually it all works out for
the better. At least, it has so far in this reality, but as
we know, everything could change in an instant, even though
it's not likely. So, be grateful our lives are as stable as
they are and get what you can while you can still get it
because it may not be here tomorrow. Well, up until now I
had planned on making this thing anonymous, but now that I
think of it, I would kick myself if it ever got any
recognition at all, and I couldn't prove that I wrote it.
So, I have decided to put my name in it, and hope that
nobody decides to alter it and reprint it. So, for anyone
interested, this paper was written by Toby Hudon, or, for
anyone who has a modem, General Lee D. Mented. I hope you
had fun reading it, cause it was sure fun writing it.
