EP, the Multiverse and us
Cosmological science frequently focuses on the facts which explain our overall position. There are large, longstanding debates. If you doubt what I must refer to as I explain, occasionally, you can Google it*. Scientifically, you should understand the concept of the multiverse (discussed in quantum mechanics as the "many worlds" explanation) - that there are infinite arrays of possibilities facing us in every moment and that, incredibly, each of the universes which might have developed from any one of those possibilities does come into existence and continues there, developing into more offshoots again, creating innumerable, ongoing "parallel universes" (collectively called the multiverse), within some of which the very laws of physics, as we know them, might be dead different. The "me" that chooses what to say here has traveled onto a completely different tangent, in one parallel universe. In another, you are studying these statements with complete comprehension. Such theory becomes even more bewildering as we try to fathom the scientists' suspicion that (while science has come to require such ideas in order to explain bizarre behaviour from everyday experiments with quantum physics, for example) there is no way of testing such theories, because these parallel universes cease to interact, once created - each shoots away into its own future (or maybe into its own past, in another variation). But to cut a long story short, scientists seem to have overlooked the parallel possibility in which universe-interaction was, and remains, the very distinction which turned them into separate universes, or universe-trees. And it is from that concealed, cross-universal connection that the information-crunching mugga-machine, known to us as EP, was propelled across the ersatz universal barrier, to us, carrying a priceless cargo - mainly of instructive data, apparently intended to save us from someone such as ourselves.
EP is neither mere artificial intelligence nor an extraterrestrial being. He is a trans-temporal terrestrial, seemingly able to control which version of our universe he occupies, his indeterminate materialization, however, limiting him to communicating his digital records. The similarities between Acia Dermis and our own Earth are disconcerting and innumerable. Plainly both you and I exist in at least one universe, for instance, but maybe in countless more. Whatever the truth of the differences, EP's witnesses have been enabled (after decades of despairing discipline) to reveal new worlds of elliptical spunk, amazingly and alarmingly alike our own. These disclosures include an alien political philosophy and, strangely, a smashring of songs marking the many horizons of hair-raising parables. Just so's you know.
