Abstract

We consider connections between Adolfo Bioy Casares’s story “The Celestial Plot” and various scientific and philosophical ideas about parallel universes. In particular, we’ll show how the story anticipates in some ways the Many Worlds notion which argued that reality bifurcates during quantum measurements, leading to near-identical copies of observers.
