Archie's parallel lives and the "many-worlds" interpretation of quantum mechanics

Life-with-archie-married-life

In July of this year Archie Comics created two new titles: "The Married Life: Archie Loves Betty" and "The Married Life: Archie Loves Veronica."

So it would appear that there are those who indeed can have it both ways.

The "many-worlds" interpretation of quantum mechanics, published by Hugh Everett III in 1957 in Reviews of Modern Physics, holds that "in addition to the world we are aware of directly, there are many other similar worlds which exist in parallel at the same space and time."

 I love how theoretical physics has penetrated so deeply into the warp and weft of everyday life that most of those who read these comics won't have a clue what they represent in a deeper sense.

And that's just fine.
