Are Pokemon real?

#1SalsaSavantPosted 8/22/2012 6:04:14 PM
So, if there are infinite possible universes, does tht mean that somewhere out there is a world where Pokemon exist, or a world made up entirely of cheese puffs?

But then again, these things would imply that physics are malleable between worlds. If that were the case, somewhere in some world some omnicidal maniac, henceforth refered to as "an ass", would have used the altered physics to destroy all worlds. Since there are infinite worlds with infinite possibilities, there is a 100% chance that this would happen in some reality.

The fact that said ass has yet to destroy our world suggests that physics are consistant, and that such a power is consistantly impossible.

There are other explanations, though. One is that, while physics are malleable between worlds, there are certain universals beteen them all and such a power is impossible. While this doesn't count out the Pokemon and cheese puff worlds, it certainly does make them less likely.

Another is that the power the ass unleashes will be restricted to the physics of the worlds it is destroying, and will thus be stopped somewhere where such a feat is impossible. I think this possibility is my favorite. It has the best ratio of Pokemon realness to fiery death.

Pokemon are real, and we're all going to die.

Yes.
Unless you're an existentialist, there's no way pokemon can not exist for you to even come up with the idea. The very idea would be real in your head, therefor making pokemon real.

There's a universe where this topic would have 500 posts.

Let's make it this one! Let's both start spamming it, keeping it at the top!

Then how are you making this post?

The fact that said ass has yet to destroy our world suggests that physics are consistant, and that such a power is consistantly impossible.

So saying something, and then contradicting yourself immediately is acceptable to TC?

There are other explanations, though. One is that, while physics are malleable between worlds, there are certain universals beteen them all and such a power is impossible. While this doesn't count out the Pokemon and cheese puff worlds, it certainly does make them less likely.

But you said 100% chance that there are infinite worlds with infinite possibilities? Aren't these realities accounted for?

Another is that the power the ass unleashes will be restricted to the physics of the worlds it is destroying, and will thus be stopped somewhere where such a feat is impossible. I think this possibility is my favorite. It has the best ratio of Pokemon realness to fiery death.

Hm. That actually makes sense.

Not until the Japanese genetically create them.
