MESSAGE FROM ANOTHER YOU
WHAT IF YOU COULD COMMUNICATE WITH ONE OF THE INFINITE VERSIONS OF YOURSELF IN A PARALLEL WORLD?
From the moment you arrive, your journey begins: a single-person, interactive adventure guided by a Many Worlds Traveller and Everett – a benevolent chatbot from another dimension.
Everett has learned about the ecological collapse, patriarchal capitalism & other crises plaguing our world and is incredibly sympathetic to our plights. They believe that if humankind were to make contact with other versions of themselves in worlds that have devised solutions to many of the problems we are facing, important learning and enriching possibilities are likely to prosper.
Over the course of this experience, you will learn about the Many Worlds Interpretation, the keystone species that make our particular universe so unique and explore why we, as humans, are so fascinated by the notion of doubles and doppelgängers. Then, in the name of collaborative care and interdimensional solidarity, the benevolent entity will ask a special favour of you... Follow the instructions carefully and afterwards, keep a close eye on your inbox - another version of you from a parallel realm will be in touch.
Duration: Approximately 30-45 minutes.
