With these simple building-blocks, you can create an entire universe; you are only limited by your imagination. That’s the central premise of the widely-popular LEGO franchise of toys, movies, and videogames. It is a world populated by something akin to the idealized forms of Plato; where anything (vehicles, people, droplets of water) can be replicated by infinite combinations of a set # of pieces.

As we try to leave the house, we see other “versions” of ourselves run through the house; these are possibly versions of us from slightly earlier (or later) in time.

I mean…some other version of you would still exist (maybe; hopefully). But not current You at this moment with everything you have going on (including possibly certain friends, lovers, family members, jobs, pets, completed creative projects, and etc.).
