    Once we are able to routinely detect and inspect parallel universes I am sure these questions will all be answered.

    We won't. They are inaccessible by definition. They are theoretical: "X might have happened, while in reality, Y happened." We will never have access to the event X. The parallel universes are not physical entities that you can observe, touch or experiment with. They are a concept, just like numbers, to help us define the hierarchic tree of all possible actions and events.

    Chess is a game of imagination and of what is possible. Chess can be played in so many ways that it is unlimited to our own comprehension of thought. That is what makes the game challenging.

    interpreting art is totally personal opinion and am free to express that opinion... without such comments by non-creative people that  have only one word to describe everything from creativity to themselves!

    "Is chess a creative activity?"

    I don't know, but what we do know, generally speaking, is that chess is the antithesis of a procreative activity.

    pawns like sperm travel a distance then become pieces, that is kind of procreative

    Careful how you handle that sperm. Don't want to get the queen pregnant. That's a good way to be quickly sacrificed.

    pawns and pregnant queens is the birds and the bees stuff

    Absolutely. When a bee gets to the 8th rank it becomes a bird.

    Actually, I have absolute, irrefutable empiracle evidence that the future products of human creativity, be they paintings or chess games, already exist in the hypothetical set of all creative works. The first picture below is the lovely Parisian street scene, Rue Custine a Montmartre, as it appeared when the artist Maurice Utrillo painted it in 1909, and as it appears today.

    This second image below is also the Rue Custine a Montmartre as it appeared a few weeks before Utrillo set to work on it. Notice there is a lot of excess paint, metal tubes and a box that Utrillo skillfully left out before he rearranged the pigment on a canvas.

    The third image below is also Utrillo's street scene as it appears 170 years from now, after World War VI. If you look closely, you can also see remnants of Gericault's Raft of the Medusa and fragments of Raymond Loewy's original sketch for the Avanti. Sadly, it looks like the Sixth World War will be a war on art.

         As anyone can plainly see, Rue Custine a Montmartre existed even before it was painted, and apparently will still be around even when it's not a painting anymore! Go figure!? ........We may apprehend the creative act as a moment in time, but art and beauty are timeless and eternal.......

    That is beautiful phrasing of a wonderful sentiment.
