Hypothetical Situation Question

This question comes from a discussion I had with a friend of mine. The discussion of a hypothetical situation was – We discover a planet or planets/moons in another solar system that are perfect for us (without doing any terra-forming or anything of that sort) weather wise et all and are really beautiful and it would be really beneficial for us (health wise etc) to move there. And suppose that humanity does actually become technologically advanced enough to ship as many humans and equipment needed and it’s purely voluntary as you can also remain here on earth.

She says the really religious people will choose to remain and work it out on earth and most of those (90%-95%) who are secular / agnostic /atheists and perhaps not too religious will choose to go. Do you guys agree? Would you opt to go to this planet or planets and live there in this situation? Or would you choose to remain on earth?

Mirror Universe Me

Many of us had imaginary friends as young children. If your imaginary friend grew up alongside you, what would his/her/its life be like today? (Didn’t have one? write about a non-imaginary friend you haven’t seen since childhood.)

I never had an imaginary friend as a kid growing up. I had alter egos, ones that I even created and continue to develop as a character to this very day. He is Mirror Universe Roshan. He is everything I am not but is still a different version of me. A version that I long to be.

He has had an excellent education and finished an engineering degree from a good university in Cochin and then got into a program that would lead him to join a major company in Canada. He works for a year back in Cochin and then heads to Canada (Toronto, Ottawa, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Halifax, Montreal, Quebec, Saskatoon or any number of their good cities) and works for a huge communications giant. He settles in and makes a few good friends who will be friends with him for the rest of his life. After 3 years he visits his family back in India and then goes back again post vacation and meets the love of his life. They date and fall deeply in love and spend all their free time together. A couple of years pass, 3 or 4, and they get married.

They now live in a nice big house close enough to each other’s work and live a nice and simple life with some luxuries but nothing too extravagant. They share their home with 2 dogs and 2 cats and are seen as a really nice & happy family by everyone who knows them. Occasionally they travel to see other places too  but like spending time with each other and their furry pets at home. Simple life – I wanna be him!
