Bilinda said to me you know if you meet a clone it’s not a big deal!
I was like, tell me Bilinda. I think it would be huge like — who am I? That’s like me but it’s not me. It would blow my f-ing mind!
Bilinda said, no it’s just an identical twin. So you have an identical twin. Big deal.
Okay, you got me. What else is not a big deal?
Time travel. It’s not a big deal.
I’m like — come on! It’s a paradox! I kill my own grandpa! I am my own grandpa! That’s weird!
Nuh-uh said Bilinda. It’s like the anthropic principle. Our standards of explanation just need to be trimmed to the wind of a different causal picture than was known in the stone age.
Okay okay. Time travel not a big deal, cloning not a big deal, ESP I suppose is no big deal
It’s not. It’s just a biologically mediated E-S-P-N.
Then what is?
And she kissed me!
