The Multiplicity Of The Multiverse

There's a theory that ours isn't the only universe. That there are, actually, infinitely many universes.

That there are, then, infinitely many yous.

That there are infinitely many different yous reading infinitely many different versions of this show synopsis. That there are infinitely many universes that don't even bother to include you. Or this show synopsis. Or even reading.

Also, there's a theory that The Berenstain Bears prove the theory that ours isn't the only universe.

So, this hour, in this universe, a show about all that. Or (at least) one version of a show about all that.
