Also, the multiverse itself would be a big waste, and indeed, this this big waste could be the case. You would also have to conceive of universes that never developed life because their cosmological constants did not allow it to happen. Waste happens in nature indeed! You only have to look at our own universe: the deadly vastness of space, the burning stars forming galaxies that rapidly drift away from one another as the universe expands, our turbulent Earth that kills so many of us, our barren moon in the sky etc.
Lucid dreaming and OOBEs are products of brain electrochemistry. It is the elements of this universe that eventuate such illusions. You don't really travel to parallel worlds as much as we fancy the idea. I know many of us fancy "Quantum Leap" or "Sliders" but these programs only serve to entertain and excite the imagination.
You can express your beliefs and thoughts, and explain why you have them. But try to be a bit more respectful.
While in Bognor Regis I went to the beach and looked at myriad pebbles of different shapes, sizes, colours, and forms. I picked up a little pebble and imagined that it was our universe. I also imagined that the properties of the pebble represented the requirements for a universe that is just like ours, with the same laws of physics and capable of generating life. To find another exactly like it meant finding another universe sustaining life. If it differed even in the slightest it could not support life. I was looking at a sea of lifeless worlds, a vast multiversal waste. I couldn't find another pebble exactly like the one I had picked up which represented my home universe.
Needless to say, I didn't look everywhere and perhaps there are replicas out there somewhere that I missed. But I did realise two things: the first is that I was getting an empyrean, subliminal feeling inside; the second, that there was no room for God, afterlife and other such religious ideas. I'm a godless artist who appreciates nature, who is capable of profound spiritual states of mind (purely in the electrochemical sense), and has a respect for science. I treasure my imagination.

Okay, well don't just say "wrong."
Explain, so that I can understand.
Make a contribution to the argument rather than just saying that, man.
