The Imaginary Map Scrolls of Separate Realities

the imaginary map scrolls of separate realities:

indeed, why would you or anyone assume that this is the only reality that exists? by the word reality, i mean everything that is here, in this space of ours, that is connected to each other. now the obstacle in thinking about other, separate realities is the simple question, where are they? you see the difficulty lies in escaping the referencing of everything to here and now in this reality.

what if every reality were as if a map scroll which could be laid out on a long table next to the others end to end? note the map scrolls would not touch. some might be large, some might be little. considering our own reality, would it be one of the larger map scrolls or just medium sized? it is easy for everyone to imagine like realities, with similar people, only slightly different.

there are specific things of our reality that we do not notice as peculiar or individual perhaps, for example, subjectively, gravity is downwards and our heads are at the top of our bodies. this is our bias. objectively speaking, the alternative upside down world with gravity upwards and the head at the bottom of the body is not that different.

i imagine the old wizard genius, who has worked out what every possible reality could be, its troubles and victories, the pitfalls each face and its limitations, its history even.
