Default Re: Planes of existence, How many?

You also need to decide what "plane of existence" even means.

Is it just a separate place you can't get to easily? Far away places could qualify then, even if you can physically travel there, especially should the rules change - consider the land of the dead in Earthsea, or down the rabbit hole, or stuff set on "different planets" or a "past" that never really happened or a "future" that really could not.

What about changes of perception? Do you go to a "different plane" when you dream? log into a virtual reality? eat hallucinogenic mushrooms? travel by theosophic meditation?

How about changes of scale? There are after all stories set on "atoms" reached by super shrinking. It's a fuzzy concept.
