Example text

Some respondents assumed that civilization starts on only one Earth map. If this happened, explorers would immediately know what to expect on other Earths. They would know the areas to avoid because of bad climates, floods, droughts, or earthquakes. Once an earthquake occurred on the San Andreas fault of Map 1, explorers would not settle in the same place on Map 2. Would confusion reign on Infinity World because a sovereign nation owns different territories in different maps? For example, the government of Vietnam might occupy southeastern Asia on one world and North America on the next.

Since I couldn't carry more than a tiny fraction of the provisions for such a journey, I concluded that it was impossible to escape without help. The atmosphere, and its accompanying wind resistance, would also be a major detriment since I would want to put most of my power output into kinetic rather than potential energy during the intermediate stages to cover the distance in only six years. To get to the moon in six years, I'd have to average almost five miles an hour. Finally, Arlin Anderson from Alabama suggests that we build X-shaped machines with a wheel on each tip.

For example, if all parallel Earths started at a completely identical state, divergence of events would not occur, and every dewdrop on every blade of grass would be identical on each sub-Earth. Your exact twin would exist on each and every sub-Earth, but you could never meet your twins because for every step you take north your twin also steps north. Chaos theory, which suggests that imperceptibly small differences are amplified through time, may have no effect on Infinity World if all sub-Earths have truly identical starting points.
