To truly appreciate some of this update’s dialogue, and especially that which comes from the “Multiverse Homers” you need to understand a little bit about multiverses in general. This is complicated by the fact that the majority of the most brilliant theoretical physicists don’t completely agree on the concept as more than “Theory.”
For those who want a bit more “Multi-faceted” explanation, Here is a Semi-Quick WIKI post about the basics of the theory and its origin.
For those who just want a quick theory, while part of you is reading the Wiki theory, and another part of you is doing something completely different in another time/space that is happening at the same time, you have just become an example of the basic idea.
In short…(I know…too late), Schroedinger, Hawking, Tyson and countless others believe that this universe, and everything in it, have several (up to an infinite number) of other parallel universes, where your actions in this universe may in fact be different than your actions in the other universes…at the very same time.
Confused yet? Pishposh…
I prefer to think of it as the actions in THIS universe being choices we make…Free Will choices…which may or may not affect the actions/results in other universes, but which are all tied to a single external consciousness that is outside of ALL space/time.
OR………IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THE HOMER SKINS that are ALSO NOW MULTIVERSE Characters in this update… You can just LAUGH at the “Easter Eggs” (a term that means, hidden surprises…but won’t rot in the sun if not found), that come with this update. There are a few!
Let’s take a look!
The way you find them is simple…
Just scroll through your Homer Skins, and as you come to each of those that you have purchased or won, which correlate with one of the Multiverse/Doppleganger Homers, a bit of funny dialogue will pop up.
There are Funny Lines for Evil Homer, Cool Homer, Homer the Barbarian, Strongman Homer, and King-Size Homer.
I’m not going to spoil all of the Easter Eggs…what’s the fun in that?? Try it yourself!
The Multiverse Homers or Dopplegangers actually have a “near and dear connection” as I founded a band in the 90s by the name of “Dopplegang.” We were all former studio musicians, with real lives and family, who just wanted to play in an “alternative universe” as weekend rock stars. Great fun. You can find some of the music HERE.
And just like Homer…it only takes a “flip of the switch” (as in turning my amp up to 11) and I am that guy all over again.
Here’s to alternative lives…delivering humor and fun!
Here’s to the HomerGangers!
