    How about a faraday cage full of spares?

    So many conundrums in this thread. I think I might have a wee nap.

    I guess you could see it two ways. ONE the future is linear and already decided, TWO you travel to one of many possible futures, its a throw of the dice which one you land in.

    From the macroscopic perspective your first point is correct. But from the microscopic quantum level your second point could well be true.

    But who knows. I mean one interpretation of quantum physics and the collapsing of the wave function is that an object, say the moon, is only there when you the observer look at it
