I imagine a [[quantum die]] that forces every outcome to be true in some area of the multiverse in a reality where not all dice offer the same guarantee.

If I had such a die I'd try to use it to schedule work: that is, to pick which of a set of equally important tasks I am to do next. It would feel reassuring to think that all the tasks (or their intents) would come to happen, somewhere, for some definition of where.

If I had such a die I'd throw it millions of times, using the throws to reveal (slowly) to me some huge number. Then I would try to interpret the number; find something in it. Perhaps take it to encode a program, try to execute it, see if it outputs something. See if it halts.

If a future where we have the technology to communicate with far away areas of the multiverse is achievable from our material present given time and energy and knowledge, it could be said that between our present and such a future there is a [[garden of forking paths]].

@TetraspaceGrouping ha, perhaps ;) looks neat and old school, a combination I particularly enjoy :) thank you!
