Do You Mean Unrealized Potentials?

Your post was too short for me to understand. The way I see it, TOM lives in a different reality where all possibilities co-exist concurrently, while the conscious me lives in a reality where a single one of those possibilities has been actualized.

I don't mean different reality as in "another dimension" or "spiritual world", I'm using reality in the sense of the total amount of information which is the content of consciousness at any point in time. Conscious Me lives only in the present, TOM lives both in the past, as it has full access to my entire collection of memories, and in the future, as it has access to all possibilities and all the different outcomes of their combinations.

That sounds a bit like the wave/particle thing, and I'm sure it's not just a coincidence.

I'm also sure someone will interpret this as mysticism and cynically write it off so don't expect me to further ellaborate. We can exchange e-mail if you'd like but I don't want to waste my time explaining my ideas on a public forum to people who are not interested in understanding them.
