This old Irish paradox has always made sense on some level but perhaps it was truer than we knew. Maybe on those days when we feel a bit strange, a bit ‘off’, we are actually communing with our other-dimensional selves? Well, don’t ask us- ask Second Year Michael Horan who was recently named a Highly Commended Irish Young Philosopher of 2021. Michael entered the UCD-based competition after being inspired by Dr. Fallon’s Philosophy Class. His project, ‘Quantum Immortality’ explores the deep questions of existence, consiousness and interdimensionality and takes us from the Big Bang to a possible future where we are all purified, evolved beings enjoying eternity at an all-expenses-paid conference somewhere over the rainbow. Read it all yourself, here, and please, please contact Michael (not us) if you are confused!
