I've been thinking about Earth Prime. Is it possible that certain dimensions can have 'carbon copies', meaning be identical in every way? Not likely, but certainly possible if there are an infinite number of dimensions. What if the only differences between to Earth primes is where the first slide went? Maybe the group we follow goes to some world almost identical to the prime, and encounters the other sliders. This could cause big problems, maybe a rivalry between sliders; each group maintaining that this earth was their home. -- Mail me at mailto:smustain@terminus.com "I believe God created me in a day!"

Doubtful. You see a parallel Earth is created because a different decision or path is taken. There would be worlds close to the one that our sliders come from (I refuse to call it prime because we don't know that for sure. In fact, we don't know if our world is prime.) but none would be exact. -Jeff.

If there is an infinite # of dimensions, then yes there would be other earth primes.... An infinite number would eventually mean a duplicate somewhere... give an infinite number of monkeys an infinite amount of time.... -- Sweet Dreams, Wayne A Negative Inverse Correlation I hate that I dream of you Would wish about me.

How do you come to this conclusion? If there are an infinite number of universes, then there is no end to the number of universes. Therefore, there are an infinite type of every universe. That is, every universe the sliders have visited, and those they haven't is repeated an infinite number of times. George M.

There could also be many Earths with such mundane differences such as a world where everything is exactly the same, except: 1. Daryl Strawbery's homer landed in Row 15, seat 6 instead of Row 15, seat 5. 2. A computer file of mine was put onto tape #40335 instead of #40332. There could also be other semi-interesting worlds, such as: The Mormons were never chased out of Western New York and the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints ended up in Palmyra, New York.
