Who am I?

Where am I in this picture?

MC Escher Three Worlds I

It’s hard to be between the worlds.

It is even harder to be in several worlds at the same time. Spread between them, like an electron sharing several orbitals. An electron can pull off being in two places at the same time, going through two slits simultaneously, down two parallel paths. But I am too big for that. And when the reality of my situation catches up with me, when I am forced to make choices... I start feeling like Bilbo. Too much butter spread over too little bread. A wire stretched too thin.
