I honestly think this would cause some causality problems if it were the system. Is each wish responsible for the creation of every other wish that follows, if they all appear in this alternate universe? Forget the math, just finding the start point would be hard. And what if someone were stupid enough to wish they were in an alternate universe, or if every alternate universe merged? Imagine all the paradoxes!
Exactly. That's why I think the system where a person's mind is transported to a different alternate universe every time they wished would be far too impractical to work. All you'd need is one wrong wish, and the entire boiling mess would unravel to the point where things would likely cease to exist.

Or everything would turn Lovecraftian and surreal and people would be left permanently insane and gibbering as all those alternate thems slammed in at once. I can't decide which would be the better outcome, tbh, since they're both pretty awful.

If wishes were real, judging by the Internet's standards... Chuck Norris would be God of everything, mosquitoes would be extinct, Grumpy Cat would become President of the United States, Pokemon would be real, and Justin Bieber would cease to exist. I'm cool with all this, surprisingly...

Not just Pokémon. Also magic and Time Lords. And probably a lot of anime guys, who would each be maried to a whole bunch of fangirls.

What about anime girls? I'm sure there'd be lots of waifus.

The population would increase so fast due to this wishing that eventually someone will wish the world was a Minecraft world but without limits to how big it is caused by memory or floating point number precision or whatever.

Then there'd be enough room for everyone!
One thing I find myself thinking about in the shower often is if you lived in this kind of world, and there wasn't an upper speed limit/teleporters existed, how would nations work? They might try to take each other over but they can't take over the whole world because it's infinite. Would it turn into a "who can think of a the biggest number" competition to see who can capture land the fastest?
