This is not bait, I repeat this is not bait! A professional philosopher called Neil Sinhababu has published a paper called "Possible Girls" which builds upon a philosophical theory called Modal Realism to prove that waifus actually really exist. Here's a short and hilarious video explaining it more comprehensively: If you still think this is a joke here's the link to the paper itself straight from multiple professional sites used by academic instituions of all fields: Research Gate PhilPapers Wiley Online Library Abstract: "I argue that if David Lewis’ modal realism is true, modal realists from different possible worlds can fall in love with each other. I offer a method for uniquely picking out possible people who are in love with us and not with our counterparts. Impossible lovers and trans-world love letters are considered. Anticipating objections, I argue that we can stand in the right kinds of relations to merely possible people to be in love with them and that ending a trans-world relationship to start a relationship with an actual person isn't cruel to one's otherworldly lover." This man is our hero, praise Neil for showing us that our waifus are real and love us back!
