Two universes in a multiverse find a way to interact with each other. In one universe, the laws of physics are very strict. On the other, they are much more relaxed. Like the gravity in one universe is significantly weaker than the other. Even the speed of light is different. It takes considerable effort for the two universes to find a way to communicate with each other. And more often than not, they miscommunicate instead of communicating.
What follows is a story of the interactions between these two universes and the people who inhabit them.
After establishing intermittent contact, they soon realize that their laws of physics are conflicting. The two universes find themselves in a battle of wills, as they each want to prove that their way is the correct way. They argue and debate endlessly, often confused and unable to understand each other, but they can never come to a resolution.
Life in one universe has a hard time understanding life in the other. They are so used to things being a certain way that they cannot wrap their heads around the concept of another way existing. The two universes continue to battle it out, but they also find ways to coexist. They learn from each other, and in a few galactic years, they even begin to settle into each other’s planets.
After crossing into each other’s universes, the people of both universes start to change. They begin to see the beauty in both ways of life, and they slowly start to change their own ways. In the end, they find that there is no right or wrong way; there is only the way that works best for them.
It is all relative. There is no absolute. What is right for one universe may not be right for another. There are no common stories. Stories that are common in one universe may be unheard of in another. But that’s what makes life interesting. That’s what makes the multiverse so vast and wonderful.
One day, a physicist from the strict universe found a foolproof way to communicate with the creatures from the relaxed universe. The message said, “We want to talk to you.” The message was received by a scientist from the relaxed universe. The scientist from the relaxed universe didn’t know how to respond, so they just said, “Hello.”
The physicist from the strict universe was overjoyed. They finally had a way to communicate with the other universe. They sent back a message that said, “We would like to learn more about your universe and your inhabitants. Would you be willing to teach us?”
The scientist from the relaxed universe thought about it for a while, and then they sent back a message that said, “Sure, we can teach you about our inhabitants and our universe. But you have to promise not to judge us.”
The physicist from the strict universe thought about it for a while, and then they said, “We promise not to judge you.”
After crossing the language barrier, the two universes start to share their stories with each other. They find that they have more in common than they thought. They both have love, hate, war, and peace. They both have their own way of doing things, but in the end, they are all just trying to find their place in the multiverse.
And that is how the two universes learned to coexist. They even had inter-universe schools that taught the inhabitants of both universes about the other. They had a common goal: to understand and appreciate each other.
But even in the best of times, there were still misunderstandings. The creatures from the strict universe couldn’t understand why the creatures from the relaxed universe were so laid back. The creatures from the relaxed universe couldn’t understand why the creatures from the strict universe were so uptight.
But even this difference proved to be beneficial as one group worked hard and the other group provided them with moral support, performing less strenuous tasks. In this way, both universes became richer and more diverse.
The two universes will never be the same, but that’s okay. Because in the end, they both learned something valuable: that life is all relative. And that’s what makes the multiverse so vast and wonderful.
