Neil Sinhababu from Donkeylicious explains how modal realism allows us to be in love with someone in another universe. He even discusses how you can make sure they’re in love with you too, and why it’s not cruel for you to break up with them to start a relationship with someone in this world. Basically, it’s Parallel Universe Dating for Dummies, as published in a respectable philosophy journal. It’s pretty short and very fun to read, so go check it out!
(Neil in fact keeps two blogs: Donkeylicious is a political blog, while The Ethical Werewolf is a philsophy blog. Somewhat counterintuitively, I’m linking to a philosophy paper discussed on his political blog. Also, Neil is a member of HRSFANS, which gives him extra cool points.)
