Looking for Meaning

A buddy got some worrisome news. And now has the anxiety of waiting for more info.

Maybe the worrisome-news category of events exists to put things like email problems into perspective, for all concerned.

However, I can easily conceive of a universe in which there's never a bad biopsy and no vexing computer problems either. That would do a lot for my perspective.

I guess the bold thing, though, is to "get" in a gut way the fact that that universe isn't the one we currently have. And then figure out how to manage, moment by moment, as gracefully as possible in the one we do have.

I am confused. If the universe isn't the one currently has,
what it is? I get the perspective part, and plead guilty to high drama in minor issues. Life and death matters jolt me into reality quickly. I am confounded by your speaking of 2 different universes. Did I miss something?
