Just a little thought, for a possible plot idea.

Quantum mechanics 'tells' us that for every choice that is made, parallel universes split off at each decision point that constitute the 'what-if' of the other choice being made. But there was another little example I read about wherein that wasn't quite what was said regarding QM. QM 'actually' says that if there are test results being taken, and they are essentially a 50/50 shot, then the universe splits because if one is equally valid to the other, there MUST be universe where that option is the result. That, to me, seems to indicate that much like Occam's Razor, the choices have to be equally weighted. Like whether to wear the green, blue, red, purple or black tie. With a white shirt and a black suit, they're equally weighted. With a coral shirt, and a tan suit, a couple of these ties are FAR less likely to be chosen.

Now, what if there ARE universes that break off from each other, based on the choices, as the pop culture indicated. But instead of them being equal, they, like the choices, are ... weighted. In some the reality of that universe is substantially lighter. The rules aren't as fixed. Reality is different in subtle and major ways, but because there's not nearly the amount of ..... ummmmm 'reality' invested in it, it can also implode when pushed too far.
