Can infinity expand anymore?

okay, this idea is officially sick. I started it off in elementary school and the mother fucker just graduated with honors. Your idea of the guy ending up as Jesus is awesome but for one historical problem. Jesus simply built Christianity on the already existing Judaism, which would mean that God still exists in the new universe. I'm not sure how to solve that problem, but that twist took me big time by surprise. In short, I loved it. Whether or not it's an impassable snare, I like the enthusiasm.

Now I'm also thinking that perhaps we're relying too heavily on the original manifestation of the idea. I'm talking about the Good God, Bad God thing. I mean, the idea has evolved and changed, or maybe just been fleshed out, in a major way. I think it should have a moral message in some way. The good god bad god angle gets morality into the story and gives us a crisis tied up with a bow, but it's also an easy way out. When I originally conceptualized this idea, I was thinking of building these universes, defining them, making the gods seem real, have the story somehow ABOUT the gods. While that may be a decent idea, the one that you expanded and I re-expanded on is MUCH better. It's a much cleaner, much more realistic, much more filmable movie.

With the large Hadron Collider in Europe we have the perfect setting for the phycisist's lab. The physicist changes the other universe that he accidentally contacts in the black hole. This has an effect on the universe. An adverse effect. Why? Well, it effects the universe at all because of all the reasons you wrote that I'm not smart enough to remember right now. Why is it an adverse effect? Because that universe operates on a different wavelength then ours and the energies of the universes are incompatible. For some reason. I don't know why. The OTHER universe effects our universe for the same reasons. Now this will be much more technical, which is your department. Okay, now this is where things get maybe a little far-fetched. The energies of the alternate universes throw people's moral compass's out of whack. Good is bad, bad is good, etc. maybe only some people it changes? Like I say, this is not well thought out. I'm just trying out some different scenarios.

As far as how the movie ends. I fucking love the disentigration of universes. With infinite universes there is a universe exactly like that ones that are destroyed but that have a tree growing where there was once a bush. Now, we have the physicist in the new universe sees, in the black hole, the destruction of the other universes and alters his plans thus saving his universes and not being destined to repeat the universes destructions for infinity. But, smart viewers will realize that if in one universe he stops the experimentation, in another universe he will simply continue and repeat everything anyway. Also, that seems very "at the end of a movie the character wakes up and it was just a dream". So, maybe the universes shouldn't blow up. But then how do we end the movie in a satisfactory way? Fuck, i can't think about this anymore tonight.


The movie ends when, fuck I don't know. Maybe the universes should just blow up.

as for the idea of Jesus, I thought that now that the universe no longer had a good God or a bad God (and the audience knows this) then when you see Jesus at the end they come to the realization that what I was trying to imply was that Jesus, and all monotheistic religions, were wrong but there is still a lot out there (including Gods in other universes) to be learned about.

All universes do not need to blow up, just the two that were messed with. And when a universe explodes it causes a big bang that creates a new universe, only this time...ohhh this is how Jesus plays in... only this time because the physicist understood the rules of the universe he made sure that he was created in the new universe as the good God, and hence we see him as Jesus (the living form of God) in the past–our past.
