"Quantum Jumping"

From the web site:

Quantum Jumping is based on the idea that multiple universes exist. These universes are similar to the world you know in many ways. The difference is that in these universes different versions of you also exist who made different decisions at critical points in your life. Whether you choose to take it literally or metaphorically, the truth is Quantum Jumping works and has for close to 31,000 students since its launch in 2009.

Today Quantum Jumping is a global movement with a passionate community. The program is one of the best selling mind power home study programs on the Internet and in 2010 was the best-selling program in its publisher Mindvalley’s entire catalogue. Burt Goldman has almost 63,000 fans on Facebook.

The original Star Trek had a number of excellent episodes with that theme, of course it is an idea like time travel that is either impossible to perform or prove that it happens...."Mirror, Mirror" as well as "The Tholian Web" come to mind as episodes where the concept was used effectively.

The quantum jumping being pushed by Burt Goldman has nothing to do with science fiction or even the multiverse hypothesis in physics. It is a creative visualization technique. It probably works as well as any over motivation technique.

In which universe? Isn't the whole idea that everything that is true in some universes is not true in others? How do we know that we're in one of the universes where it works? And, if we successfully "quantum jump" to another, how do we know that it'll work there? If it doesn't work there, how will we ever be able to get back?

'Course, we could just put the whole thing in the "new age woo" basket (which was likely Parvati's point).

Maybe it could take you to the Under-Verse.

This seems to repeat the premise of the shortlived TV series "Sliders".

The notion of somehow switching from this universe to a parallel universe is not especially new; it was a recurring theme on Star Trek. However, wishing that one could do so does not make a "movement". Unless and until this guy can come up with a reliable means to send me to another universe - and a reliable means to get me back if it turns out to be less desirable than this one - I'm keeping my distance.

I received this today.

I’ll tell you what. As you grew older, you were forced to start living in the “real world”. Your teachers told you to stop daydreaming. Your parents told you to be “realistic” and get a good job. Bills and responsibilities started pouring in, and before you knew it, your childhood dreams had vanished into thin air.

But imagine for a second that somewhere out there, there is a version of you who is able to turn all those dreams into reality.

I'm horrified to contemplate a universe in which David Van Pelt is right about things.

As far as Van Pelt is concerned, that falls under the rubric of "be careful what you wish for, because you may get it." I think that Van Pelt would not like the world he has built, if it (shudder) became a reality, because things wouldn't work out quite like he envisions.
