I think of the multiverse as a Rubik’s Cube comprising an infinite number of infinitely large cubes — all connected, but also distinctly separate.

My understanding of the world embraces consciousness as a universal characteristic, not a byproduct of chance that is unique to our world. It builds upon the concepts of balance, persistence, and relativity, but not symmetry or equality in the traditional context.

All universes are boundless but not infinite, in that they are inescapable, but limited in scope by time. A photograph of the entire universe would allow for measurement, but subsequent observation would show growth, rendering the previous measurement useless because of its persistence in time.

The Rubik’s Cube multiverse analogy may mislead some to believe that all universes are parallel, but that is not true. They are all equal in size because of their boundless scope, but if photographed at the same moment in time, each universe may not be equal in distance between their respective bounds in time.

Time is inconsequential to the greater multiverse, but each individual universe is bound by it. The entire lifespan of our universe might be equal to a single moment in another. Yet neither moment is more or less consequential than the other, while both remain inconsequential to the larger picture.

Upon death, our consciousness may transcend our 4-dimensional existence to become an entity capable of simultaneously observing every dimension of the multiverse, which ultimately assures each individual universe exists in a constant physical state.

The multiverse continuously persists as the direct result of the death of conscious beings — giving literal meaning to life through death.
