    Something's been bugging about the last scene. They mentioned that an alternate dimension (our's) was created and that we aren't real... fair enough... however surely that would be impossible as the whole this was a hallucination, nothing was created as they didn't even go anywhere.

    Yes but what they hallucinated wasnn't our reality.

    The idea is that in Quantum mechanics not that i understand it exensively,
    every time you think something up, it is made real in another universe, because reality is a multiverse as apposed to it being a linear thread.

    And unless i'm mistaken there's no such thing as the Tyrell building on the thames sky-line, nor was there a series IX or most of the merchandise in "they walk among us" or more controversialy the Dwarfers have now made blade-runner a movie by thinking it.

    Just think. Everyone's dreams and imaginations create another universe, according to Kryten. Hence an actual world, similar to ours (maybe even the fictional version of our world?) was created when the crew halucinated. Call it the meta-world if you like.

    In the meta-world, Red Dwarf is a TV show. Since imaginary worlds become real (and the meta-world now exists for real in the multiverse) does that mean the Dwarf-verse owes it's existence to the metaworld too?

    In short, are the worlds creating each other? A multidimensional ouroboros?

    Don't worry! It's probably only a fictional headache made real by some quantum mechanics baloney.

    In the words (or thereabouts) of Craig Charles himself.

    "In an infinite universe anything that can happen will happen. That means that Dave Lister is out there somewhere".

    By no means a fact but an interesting possibility. There's an interesting book by Marcus Chown called The Never Ending Days of Being Dead. It's meta physics rather than physics but it examines the notion of our reality being a historical "computer" simulation from the distant future rather than reality itself. Apparently a significant number of physicists and philosophers consider this to be the overriding likely truth of our existence!
