I tend to believe in the multiverse theory. Combined choices of everyone determines which timeline to follow. Kinda like those Walking Dead video games.

If your scientist discovers proof of the multiverse, he can choose to be either happy or sad depending how he looked at it. In some worlds someone may suffer and die, and in other ones those same people will live happy productive lives. If this happens to everyone, then good and bad balances each other out. Knowing that the multiverse existed would make me very happy.
