I just noticed that I dated the last four pages I wrote this morning incorrectly – ten days in the future. I also noticed that I’m writing single-spaced again. I can feel the influence of other universes. It was a bit unusual that I woke up early and went to the lighthouse to write. My usual would be not to and instead to wait perhaps ten more days before writing again. The fact that I did get up and write and the fact that I did misdate the pages are unexpected events that can tell me about my possible futures. More on this later, but I wanted to briefly mention it now. Here is a characteristic of the universe I have found to be true:
Events are connected to the possible pasts and to the possible futures. The more connected with the pasts, the less connected with the futures, and vice versa!

You can feel event interference when you have some future event that you have planned. There are universes where you go to or experience the event and those universes where you don’t. As the time for the event approaches, you can feel the probability that you will go to or experience the event change. One moment you will feel like it and another you won’t. When there are roughly equal number of universes where the event happens and where it doesn’t, the feeling of “will I go” vs. “will I not go” will alternate often.
Throw two rocks into a pond and watch the ripples as they meet. You will see an interference pattern. This is a property of waves. For now, I just want you to be aware of this interference and to imagine how it may occur with event probability waves. We are constantly “moving” among and in the parallel universes that are “nearby” the one we are experiencing at any moment. Nearby universes with different events will result in event interference.
I think of my single-spaced vs. double-spaced writing in terms of parallel universes. There are universes in which I write a particular page of this single-spaced and universes where I write that page double-spaced. If you had asked me two days ago about this, I would not have considered the possibility that this book would be written single-spaced. My intention and expectations were that each page would be written double-spaced.
The best way for me to explain event probability waves is to notice that the last page – actually the last two pages – were written single-line spaced vs. double line spaced. The “event” in this case was when I wrote the second line of the page – did I skip a line or not. There was a probability that I would skip a line which you might predict to be high since pages one through six were all written double-spaced. Or you might predict it to be low since I normally write single-spaced.
The moon is over my right shoulder behind me as I watch the waves at the lighthouse waiting for the sunrise. The waves coming in are powered in most part by the changing gravitational pull of the moon as it revolves around the earth. We can use Newton’s classical laws of motion to predict where the moon will rise and set at any point on the earth. We can’t predict the height of the ocean, except as an average height based on the tide. We can’t predict when a wave will hit the shore tomorrow.
With waves in the ocean, we can see the water and watch the wave travel through the medium of the water. As we listen to the waves crash and hit the shore, it is obvious that the waves have energy. The energy of the universe is contained in probability wave – the probability of an event happening at any point and time can be predicted, or at least estimated. It is the interaction of these probability waves that shape the universe.
In contrast to a Classical Universe, where all objects big and small move according to Newton’s laws of motion, our universe is a Quantum Universe full of interacting energy waves.
Surfers spend a lot of time paddling in the ocean or sitting on their board and watching the waves as they come in. If you watch, you can see many different interacting waves – some small and some big – which all effect the movement of the surfer on his board – up and down – and also in all directions.
