Prolegomena: If there are other universes, are they limited in number or infinite? Parallel or alternate? Separate or accessible? Stephen Hawking seems to think that some day we might be able to move among them. As Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibnitz supposedly said, "In the infinite mind of an infinite God might there not exist an infinity of universes." Were persons or beings in the past and also in the present doing so? One wonders whether we should wish it to be so.

Hook in the Book
Those cynical eyes opened a bit wider. “You read!”
“My parents infected me before I knew any better. There was no bedtime, as long as I was reading a book.”
“What splendid parents.”
