Woman’s ‘quantum immortality’ theory that ‘we never really die’ unnerves TikTok

It remains the biggest mystery of life – and when people start sharing their theories on what happens after death, things can get creepy.

TikTok user @joli.artist has left her followers spooked after a recent video she uploaded titled ‘apocalypse…again’.

Often known to discuss macabre stuff, Joli’s content focuses on things like conspiracy theories and quantum physics.

In her video, she talks about the ‘quantum immortality theory’ which is American physicist Hugh Everett’s ‘many-worlds’ interpretation.

She goes on to explain the theory that states “nobody ever actually dies” and that “consciousness never experiences death.”

“Instead, whenever you die in one universe your consciousness just gets transferred into another universe where you survive.”

So, for those who may be excited or intrigued about the concept of an apocalypse, sadly, if Everett is correct, you’re just going to wake up somewhere else.

She continued: “So after the inevitable apocalypse occurs, you’re going to wake up the next day in a new reality, and the next thing you know, you’re going to find yourself on Reddit talking about ‘since when did Pizza Hut have two Ts?!’

“Arguing with people who are native of this new reality, talking about ‘it’s always had two Ts?'”

This is in reference to the many discussions on internet forums surrounding the Mandela Effect.

For those unaware of the phenomenon, it’s when an individual (or, in many cases, a group of people) believe a distorted memory. Common examples are that the Monopoly man wore a monocle or that Curious George had a tail.

It is actually called the Mandela Effect because so many people believe Nelson Mandela died in prison in the 80s when he actually died in 2013.

Joli is implying that in our reality, apocalypses happen every day, which left many users feeling uneasy to say the least.

She continued: “You don’t believe me? Okay, it’s been about 65 million years since the asteroids allegedly took out the dinosaurs.

“So you mean to tell me that in the last 65 million years, no other asteroids have come through the neighbourhood and taken us out?

“What I’m saying is that Earth is probably always being taken out, and our consciousness just keeps transferred to another parallel universe – and then another one, and another one.

“For all you know the apocalypse probably already happened last night…”

The video so far has got 972 thousand likes, with plenty of uncomfortable comments.

One TikTok user said: “The thought of never being able to actually die is extremely depressing and giving me a headache.”

Another user said: “You’re over here talking about extinction level events and I’m having to check on the two Ts in Pizza Hut.”

Many users were quick to point out a glitch in the video, and when they watched it a second time, the glitch disappeared. Spooky stuff.
