Extra of a narrative than a idea, however it correlates to a few of these and makes me suppose some might be actual. Once I was youthful I had this little stuffed animal canine I named rocky. One evening, my youthful sisters and I (who all slept in the identical room so we may hangout collectively) had been messing round, and I two handed over head tossed rocky into the wall immediately in entrance of my mattress. He hit the wall, slid down behind no matter was in entrance of my mattress, and was NEVER seen once more. I instantly went to go get him and he simply wasn’t wherever. We tore the entire complete small room aside. All of us noticed the occasion happen. Over time the room has been utterly emptied out, every thing in it rearranged, partitions painted, everything- and no rocky. He simply utterly phased out of existence. Makes me suppose he glitched out of the system or one thing.
Cosmology could be disturbing.
For example, I not too long ago realized of lifeless finish journeys. There are some locations that you simply should not attempt for. It is doable to journey so distant from the place you began, that the growth of the universe will exceed the pace you had been travelling at.
You’ll be able to’t return dwelling, as a result of house is receding quicker than you may journey.

You can not attain any vacation spot, even when you journey without end.
The Gaian Bottleneck idea. Mainly the explanation we have by no means encountered or been contacted by aliens is as a result of they’re all lifeless. Each alien species that developed to kind superior societies ultimately outgrew their planet and destroyed themselves. Like we’re.
People are fearful of issues that mimic them too completely, the idea is that we developed this as a result of there was a brilliant predator of some type that may mimic us and kill us. However we by no means knew what occurred to it
“There’s a idea which states that if ever anybody discovers precisely what the Universe is for and why it’s right here, it should immediately disappear and get replaced by one thing much more weird and inexplicable. There’s one other idea which states that this has already occurred.” – Douglas Adams
That there isn’t any secret society controlling every thing, and people by themselves are destroying humanity and themselves. And it is simply simpler to suppose that it is another person behind all of the evil .
That we’ve got so little information in regards to the deep darkish elements of the ocean and don’t really know what lurks there
The idea that we’re all quantum immortals and when somebody dies in our actuality for them they only carry on moving into a actuality the place they did not

That people nearly went extinct. 70,000 years in the past a volcano in Indonesia erupted. There’s theories that we’ve got a genetic bottleneck round that point. Took our inhabitants all the way down to 10,000-3,000 (like the dimensions of 1 small city). Plenty of recent genetic materials died with those that had been misplaced and the ensuing inbreeding may have resulted in some genetic illnesses which have made their approach into people at the moment. With out this occasion, we could have superior quicker and be more healthy individuals at the moment.
Not a idea however actuality. Schizophrenia can occur to anybody, at any age, even to completely wholesome individuals. Think about being regular after which waking up sooner or later and seeing and listening to issues that are not truly there. That’s actually scary and creepy.
I had a professor in faculty who taught physics and he defined why we are going to doubtless by no means come throughout aliens. The universe is about 14 billion years previous. Over the course of that point, it’s doubtless that clever life, apart from life on earth, has existed. Nonetheless, 14 billion years is an INSANELY very long time. Different life types have most likely risen and fallen 1000’s of instances over. Excessive dynasties with expertise we are able to solely dream of getting have most likely existed. Life types may have lasted lots of of 1000’s of years and nonetheless not even be near our timeline. The probabilities of different clever life types present similtaneously people, within the 14 billion years the universe has hosted a risk for all times, is actually unlikely. Statistically, clever life to have shaped, prospered, and even existed similtaneously people is extraordinarily small merely because of the absolute drop in a bucket that we’re on phrases of time. We could very nicely be utterly alone within the universe.
The darkish forest idea. This explains the Fremi paradox, why we haven’t seen some other superior life types regardless of the vastness of the universe. Different superior life types don’t ship out indicators into the remainder of the universe as a result of they’re fearful that one thing extra superior and harmful goes to seek out them first. There’s one other concept that different civilizations know there’s one thing on the market however don’t ship any indicators as a result of it has no purpose to not wipeout the complete planet.
There’s a science fiction ebook primarily based on this and I believe this quote explains it higher than I can:
“The universe is a darkish forest. Each civilization is an armed hunter stalking by way of the bushes like a ghost, gently pushing apart branches that block the trail and making an attempt to tread with out sound. Even respiratory is completed with care. The hunter must be cautious, as a result of in all places within the forest are stealthy hunters like him. If he finds one other life—one other hunter, angel, or a demon, a fragile toddler to tottering previous man, a fairy or demigod—there’s just one factor he can do: open hearth and eradicate them”
Okay this one is tough so please naked with me,
So the frequent time journey query is would you return and kill child hitler?
Nicely think about if that was you, to us within the present timeline you’d be a hero that killed somebody really evil earlier than that they had likelihood to deprave or endanger anybody however to the individuals of that point you’re a monster, a child killer.
They couldn’t precisely clarify to individuals, I used to be despatched from the long run to kill this child to avoid wasting lots of of tens of millions of lives. No-one would imagine him and would simply assume he was some nutcase, or possibly they’re not allowed to inform anybody as per the settlement with the long run authorities?
It makes you surprise all of the individuals by way of time which have been referred to as monsters for killing infants, what in the event that they had been simply heroes from the long run saving us all? They couldn’t inform anybody both?
That you simply would possibly concentrate on every thing taking place to you throughout surgical procedure, the anesthesia retains you from transferring and causes you to neglect.
Throughout the Challenger accident from 1986, each time the shuttle exploded, the bottom crews had the astronauts EKG’s and important scans….after the explosion, the astronauts had been nonetheless alive.

The idea that scented candles beginning getting poor evaluations on the similar time COVID hit the US. Makes you surprise how many individuals have gentle COVID earlier than we even knew about it, pairing the dearth of style and/or odor as one of many principal signs related to gentle COVID circumstances.
Some individuals have had some unusual NDEs (Close to Loss of life Experiences). Going by way of web sites cataloging them could be a journey. I am keen to attribute a few of them to mind injury and a few as “legit” although I will by no means be capable of inform which is which.
Loss of life mattress visions give me a hotter sense of safety. I can not think about how peaceable it have to be to die and see your deceased family members there to make sure you make it safely to the opposite facet.
The idea that the final moments of consciousness earlier than dying can really feel like a literal eternity, and the place your thoughts can create complete realities from blissful to horrifying. So in a approach the specter of enduring a hellscape of everlasting struggling could be very actual it doesn’t matter what you imagine.
The universe might be dying, and we would haven’t any method to know till we simply abruptly vanish from existence.
There might be a kind of quantum power wave, cannot bear in mind what it is referred to as as a result of it has been so lengthy since I examine it. Zero level collapse, possibly? Vacuum bubble burst? However no matter it’s, it is an power wave that begins in some unspecified time in the future, and spreads outward on the pace of sunshine, annihilating any matter, power, and even spacetime in its path.
As a result of the wave travels on the pace of sunshine, it’s invisible. We might haven’t any approach of seeing it coming, as a result of any mild emitted by it might hit us at the very same time that the wave itself hits us.
So, unexpectedly, the solar would possibly simply vanish from existence. We would not discover as a result of the solar’s mild from eight minutes in the past would nonetheless be reaching us. Eight minutes later, the earth simply vanishes from existence. No warning. No hint.
Spontaneous combustion. I watched a wierd however true episode about this as a baby and was satisfied I might randomly burst into flames sooner or later. I am over it now however that was my high worry for a very long time.
The primary man in house (some Russian cosmonaut whose identify I can not bear in mind) was not the true first.

As soon as it turned obvious that he was doomed the Russian authorities lower off communications, leaving him to die in isolation, and coated up the existence of the mission.
The idea that there’s an infinite variety of parallel universes branching out at every second with all doable outcomes for every scenario.
As an example that is true and also you play Russian roulette. 5 out of six of doable “you” would dwell and one would die however regardless of what number of instances you play there would at all times be variations of you that may survive. This might give these variations of “you” the phantasm of immorality. This might imply that regardless of the dangers you’d take, there would at all times be some model of you that may survive.
If that is true, it might imply that you may dwell your life utterly freed from the worry of dying and tackle any threat. However the one method to know if that is true is to reveal your self to excessive odds of deaths, repeatedly.
Additionally this may imply that as time handed there would at all times be a extra decrepit and invalid model of you surviving, possibly without end…
Anyhow that or lizard individuals.
I noticed a idea that we really dwell by way of our complete once more within the moments earlier than dying, however that it is a loop. While you attain your second of dying throughout your second of dying, you relive it once more. And once more. And once more. Trapped in a loop with no distinction, no consciousness, without end.
