I was gonna give the obvious "I think therefore I am" answer

just a feeling of being, makes one be, but then following your discussion a bit further I was thinking, 'can something exist but not be aware of it's own existence?'

A late stage alzheimer patient is kinda like that..for the most part, they simply exist..in the eternal now..no ego or geniune sense of self left (it's a horrible disease)

their brain pretty much, cannot hold any memory beyond the very moment they are experiencing (at any given moment)

yet they exist, and are alive, and can even be interacted with (to an extent)

Luckily, form is temporary.

Platonic forms are the timeless unchanging archetypes from which all subsequent changing forms evolve

Evolution is asymmetrical.

Once a theory can establish a causal connection between the parallel worlds, the theory should in principle, be testable.

What sucks for some people is that non-testable = false.

I suspect that all[theoretical] branching universes are causally intertwined in some way.

Travel from one universe to another would involve teleportation :ugeek:

Or perhaps atoms exist in multiple parallels simultaneously.
