Peeking In


At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements. 😉

What if you happened upon your bedroom window, looked in, and saw yourself inside?

  1. Oh my...what a paradox....in most time travel stories, the traveler is told to avoid meeting his other self so as to avoid major disasters...

    1. Does inside you see outside you too? Does it matter if one sees the other? There is a wall and a window between you two...

  3. Well, That would be a great twilight Zone episode. I would think of Time Travel, Out of Body experience or a parallel universe. I would even think that aliens are trying to take over like the film. Needless to say I would be freaking out.

  10. I would be really excited because it would mean that not only would I have a twin, but I would also have the ability to fly, since my bedroom is on the 2nd floor!

  11. Don't know and I been ask if I had my self clone if I could live with my self. In all honesty I think it would be diffucult.

  13. Well I would be stunned, but once that past I wonder at how that is happening. Is there a mirror there, no....well is there really two of us and maybe that is the shadow part of me that forgot to leave the bedroom when I did!! Or better yet, I have learned that not only do you leave DNA no matter where you have been, a hair, a flake of skin, etc....but I have also learned that you leave a ripple no matter where you have been, you leave some of your vibe, some of your spirit behind...a part of yourself. Maybe I would have left enough of that behind to make a full me! Then I would have to wonder how I was able to pass and look in my bedroom without climbing a ladder since said room is on the second floor....haha
