I Are there always multiple copies of you walking just beside you?

    Does physics say that when you are walking, there are always multiple copies of you walking just beside you?

    I'd strongly recommend to change your book since it seems to indulge in philosophical gibberish rather than introducing the relevant physics.

    But is some amount of philosophical interpretation important for a better understanding of the material? If a book just shows us the math without any physical picture or theory, can we say that we understand the physics?
