Narnia, The Multiverse and ChristianityEven though my personal belief in Judeo-Christianity isquite broad, I am also aware that there are ideas and beliefsystems that can be dangerous, such as hurting others to buildspiritual power, etc. Therefore, even though I may experiencesomething profound or come across an idea that I find to holdtruth, it is still important for me to study these things deeperto make sure no one is trying to pull a fast one on me (not eventhe Universe!).One of these ideas that I have been thinking about is theMultiverse.

A fractal is "a rough orfragmentedgeometric shapethat can be split into parts, each ofwhich is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of thewhole," a property calledself-similarity. Here are twoexamples from nature, where the same shape is repeated on a
