The process by which a single reality splits into two nearly identical realities upon reaching a certain point in time. At this point of divergence, an event occurs differently in each diverging reality, leading to different chains of causality in the separate realities. Divergence is similar to the "many worlds" theory of quantum mechanics, in which an event with two possible outcomes gives rise to two universes, one for each outcome.
