Many Interacting Worlds theory challenges foundations of quantum science

That is something I always asked myself do the things we see here on earth, like all the mysterious sightings and weather changes and many other unsolved things a result of parallel worlds slowly merging with ours so we are going to see more weird stuff in the future?

Griffith University academics are challenging the foundations of quantum science with a radical new theory based on the existence of, and interactions between, parallel universes.

In a paper published in the prestigious journal Physical Review X, Professor Howard Wiseman and Dr Michael Hall from Griffith's Centre for Quantum Dynamics, and Dr Dirk-Andre Deckert from the University of California, take interacting parallel worlds out of the realm of science fiction and into that of hard science.

The team proposes that parallel universes really exist, and that they interact. That is, rather than evolving independently, nearby worlds influence one another by a subtle force of repulsion.

They show that such an interaction could explain everything that is bizarre about quantum mechanics Quantum theory is needed to explain how the universe works at the microscopic scale, and is believed to apply to all matter.

But it is notoriously difficult to fathom, exhibiting weird phenomena which seem to violate the laws of cause and effect.

I think these things are widely discussed here and now it seems science is acknowledging this too.

As the eminent American theoretical physicist Richard Feynman once noted: "I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics."

Well I'm not even can imagine how it all works but if this can be proved then in combination of living in this holographic universe , its like going to the cinemas and chose your picture.

Professor Wiseman and his colleagues propose that:

- The universe we experience is just one of a gigantic number of worlds. Some are almost identical to ours while most are very different

- All of these worlds are equally real, exist continuously through time, and possess precisely defined properties

- All quantum phenomena arise from a universal force of repulsion between 'nearby' (i.e. similar) worlds which tends to make them more dissimilar.

It would clear up allot about maybe time-travel and maybe afterlife also and things like that I suppose?

While I didn't elaborate on the article, I put a spin on it with a different possibility in this thread:

Science doesn't seem to know where anti matter is going to as your thread describes and don't understand dark matter. But if you apply the possibility that multi universes exist then it's almost like that maybe dark matter are merging matter into ours and anti matter maybe travels between universes ? Like electrons go in and out of existence where do they go are they in that other parallel universe ? maybe that these items within science could be solving there problem ?

The Buddha once described these worlds when he asked for a pear. His chief disciple went to get one from the tree, and Buddha said "Nah, nah, sit down, don't waste the shoe leather, just grab it from an alternate universe right there". Jesus said "My house has many mansions, and it's a hell of a job to find someone who does windows".

This stuff has been mentioned for quite awhile as an explanation of the slit-experiment. Interesting that more scientists are starting to play with it and may bring it up to a possible major theory/explanation of the quantum realm.

One thing boggles me , if the mansions can refer to the universes can also be other populated worlds. But let's say they refer to multi universes . What does that do with subconscious and awareness the way it works and you can assume that it may be multiplying to. What a schizophrenic thought that would be ?

Then add to that the data that there is no time, that all of this is happening at once, and we impose time into it in order too keep track of the thing as well as to keep everything from happening at once. Some of Jane Roberts' Seth books and her fiction books got into this theory decades ago (I love 'The Education of Oversoul Seven').

I was thinking about the existence of other universes. Supposedly there are enough alternative realities that any reality is possible.

What if one of those universes was a universe where there are no other universes?

.. . or a universe where every planet has intelligent life,
.. or one that contains only one massive planet, or a single tiny one,
.. or others that contain cube/hexagonal/pyramid/other shaped planets,

Every 'what if' could be possible. It's mind-boggling.

It has been suggested that UFO's are craft which can travel from one universe to another as inter-dimensional craft. They obey the rules of their previous universe and appear to violate our physical laws. A sudden disappearance may just be popping back to an alternate universe.

That's exactly why we see so many sightings I guess ?
and stange spiral vortexes and stuff like that .. why was it that scientists Boyd Bushman was talking about that they Could come from their world to ours within 45 minutes crossing 65 lightyears ahead?

Can it be that they teleport between universes?

Sub atomic particles inside human cells have been observed to wink in and out of existence,and even to appear in two places at once by scientists.

Could it be that when they wink out of existence in this reality,they actually appear in the cells of our parallel world/multiverse counterparts?
And dreams-man,don't get me started on them being us tapping into to our other copies minds...

I go by the notion that "Nothing is what it seems"and it hasn't let me down to this day.

I do think that parallel universes interacting but I see it as a consequence of all these universes being simulated and the Programmers of the simulated universes realizing that it doesn't matter if these universes interact because the simulated beings will just explain things away.

For the last few years, I have been writing down every instance where I think I remember something. When we usually encounter these things, we just explain it away. We could have sworn we put our keys in our pocket but we find them somewhere else or you remember hearing about someones death but then you see they're not dead. Like I said, we just explain these things away and say, "Well, I must have been mistaken." What if you weren't mistaken and it's just your lines getting crossed with a parallel universe.

Recently, I could have sworn the Cavs played the Bulls on TNT on opening night of the NBA. I even set my DVR for the game and remember reading the description of the Cavs playing the Bulls on Tuesday night. I was surprised to check my DVR and see the Spurs vs. the Mavericks.

I saw a friend as I was walking to be seated at I-Hop. He was walking out the door so we waived and I even put up the phone sign to the ear for him to call me later. We talked later that day and I mentioned I-Hop and he said he wasn't at I-Hop that day. He was Downtown all day with his girlfriend. Again, most people would convince themselves that they must have made a mistake and they just thought they saw their friend.

I remember when I was younger, there was a guy we called Disco Bob. Everybody knew Disco Bob and so everyone was crushed when they heard he died. My sister was even friends with his sister and talked to her about his death. She screamed and ran when she bumped into Disco Bob one day because she actually thought she was seeing a ghost but he was very much alive. Of course we all just explained it away and said we must have been mistaken but we could have sworn that Disco Bob had died. Were we mistaken?

Like I said, I started writing down these things when they happen and I have a notebook full of examples. You look at things like Timeslips.

If these lines get crossed too much, we may label it schizophrenia or dissociative identity disorder. This could be a glitch in the simulation but it's a glitch you wouldn't worry about as a Programmer because the simulated beings will always explain things away.

Something doesn't fit into this model they wanna call the interaction with multiverses.
And that is that if quantum biology is going to be used into this model then wouldn't be that this going to cause trouble in proving this whole topic IMHO.

Because there studies that suggest that after we die energy leaves our bodies. And if you place those two together I have the feeling that one of those studies will conflict with eachother.

I mean presume when beings die and their energy leaves the body but still exist in energetic form how can it then be that in the other parallel world we still live ? The only explanation then would be that if spirrits proven to exist they also be trapped in this universe . And other universes have the same rule applied to them.

I hope you can follow what I'm saying because I'm losing my own statement about this lol

I don't see what you are saying in that last post. I have an easier idea about that. You already or someone did describe time as not existing. It's the same as space not existing. Everything is actually one thing but we spread it out to be able to see it in both spaces and times.

So really a "spirit" or "energy" leaving the body wouldn't be a separate thing. It's not actually going anywhere, it never left, and it's not there.

The way I look at it after many strange experiences and a lot of thought and some understanding of physics. Is that everything already happened, and yet it's constantly changing what happened. Like an already written wikipedia page that is constantly being edited, which changed the past present and future all at once, as they are all one thing.

The way this can work with many universes theory is that you are never really anchored anywhere except as an illusion of (one world one time flow).. But that illusion of one solid flow may take place in millions of universes. You'd be shifting all the time, and other people would be as well.

This doesn't take an energy to get "there" because there is really here. The part of you that you are calling "energy" (I don't think it's energy btw) is above space and time. And see there it happened again. I wrote this last night.. But I just wrote it now exactly the same. Did the other time I wrote this exact post happen? Yes it did, but now it didn't anymore. I'm not joking either. Massive dejavu.

People are trying to imagine these "parallel" universes as being parallel in some sort of space. Like they are parallel in hyper space, but even that lacks the understanding that they are only parallel in choice, not in space or in time.

Some people have multiple memory streams that don't combine all the way as shifts take place. They tried to explain that in the matrix with dejavu meaning the matrix was shifting. Usually your memory doesn't stick. Certain people are more connected to the whole rather than the ego and they can sense it easier. They tried to explain it in LOST as Desmond was needed because he could remember through time shifts while everyone else was resetting. That's how he knew charlie was going to die.. He wasn't seeing the future.. He was seeing the past that hadn't happened yet from that angle. At the end of the show everyone had made it to ETERNITY so time didn't exist.. That's how they all got there at the same time even though they died at different times.. One of them says something like have you been waiting for me this whole time? And the other guy is like no I just got here.

THey even comment on how many times humanity is started and how many times Earth civilizations begin and end. And everytime it's a little different. That's the BIG game. That it doesn't matter if we mess up because we have infinite tries and everything we do is sort of harmonic with all the "separate" universes so it's all moving in a direction over time even if we play the game a billion times it only matters that we win one time.

If you don't understand LOST the show a lot of the character names are hints. It starts off talking about duality with JOHN LOCKE.. Black and white good and evil.. It has reincarnation.. Dharma.. Karma... Those are some of the "directions" in "hyperspace" It's not like oh that other world is to our left. No that other world is toward your fear or something more like this..

"Moving the island" is putting Earth in another spacetime stream.. He turns the Wheel of Dharma to do it..

Anyway I'm ranting. I'll shut up now.

Ah, but that brings up an interesting point. If there are infinite universes, then there are an infinite number of planets with which to fill them. Since not all those infinite planets contain intelligent life, there is a finite number of planets that contain life in those infinite universes.

Further, we know that a finite number divided by infinity is essentially zero. From this we can derive that the intelligent-being population of these infinite universes is also zero. So, any individual whom you may happen to meet in any of these infinite universes essentially does not exist and is simply the figment of some madman's delusional mind.


So long . . . and thanks for all the fish!

Where is this other merging universe? And how does it fit already in a Universe that is full.

If the fabric of space and time could as easily be dismissed then stars and planets simply wouldn't exist.

Everything exists as it does now because of a continuous balence that cannot be thrown off.

Matter is compressed in order to make up *space* without compressed matter there would be no * Space*. Atoms wouldn't be atoms they would just be solid clumps.

Water from the ocean would fall from the sky. The world would explode along with the milkyway as every galaxy collides with solid objects.

This honestly is a never ending debate, Same paradoxal questions that get shot down everytime.
Paradoxs do not make up the building blocks of all of existance. Because massive contradictions never mean that such an instance is going to be 100% accurate, its probably going to be less than accurate actually because we have to think up loop holes.

Such as quatum theory needs to cling to the idea of multi-verse theory. Just one problem. Where is this other place?
And if it exists where can we point to it? What reason does it exist? What is its purpose in maintaining balence in our universe? If you cannot answer this questions straight on and have to think of some gimmicky loop hole just to make it seem remotely possible.
The universe dosn't like loopholes, And would be sad if the universe actually did opperate on the concepts of a theory with loop holes around something that just is to rediculous to even be possible.

People laugh when i go off about aliens, This is just... Well im glad people on here show me some respect at least.

Don't take this multi-verse theory to hard if your trying to explain inter-dimensional beings you are doing it wrong.
a dimension is never a place it is a point of perspective... that's it.

No alter universes no secret hidden world orbitting beside ours on some metaphysical plane.
Matter can transform in reality enough without all these gimmicky theories sturring the pot.

Isn't it good enough that mass can take any state? Liquid gas solid and energy? How about the 5th state? Donno what the 5th state is? Lets call it unreactive sludge. Black holes create this and it is in such abaundance that it is the jelly holding our universe together. it allows galaxies to form because of decelerated light, setting the speed of light at a constant variable.

Tho the speed of light can be slightly different from galaxy to galaxy.

There is so much energy and mass in the universe that if all the dark energy suddenly decompressed itself the universe would expand by a rate of 9 or more. Basically there would be no empty space. The entire universe would just be one solid object spanning in all directions. But the thing is, Its not even remotely possible to acess that much energy. The scale is simply to big. And nothing could of started it either, Because it's impossible to trace when the first dark matter partcle was created. Why? Because it already expanded an eternity ago.

How are we going to trace the moment of birth of the Universe when the milkyway 100% isn't the first galaxy to be floating here. and i say here as a very general term because Where is Here? We know from our perspective we are always in the center of the universe where ever we travel. We can only judge based on our estimates of the life expectancy of the surrounding nabouring galaxies. What im trying to say, is that reality is much weirder than the mundane view.

I'm not saying that things that can be described as *from another universe* don't exist. I'm just saying trying to narrow it down that specifically is incorrect because it is not real in that way. But more or less there is only ONE universe. The one we live in.

We do we have to assume that just because an E.T has poltergistish abilities that is from another universe altogether? If so how did it even found *Us* so to speak. The milkyway is moving you know and inside of it is us also moving along a band of stars. How do these alter universal beings know exactly where to find Earth from their alter universe where matter can decide to break some imaginary rule collective humanity placed on the expectiations of physics. i don't know i just find it harder to believe. The only loop hole i can think of is the universe has tears in it that lead to other universes. Sounds good when you first hear it but when you actually think about it. It would also likewise be impossible because such activity would destabelize the core of the universe. What would happen in reality if such an instance occured.

Is all universes would be merged into one. Why? Pressurized equalibrium.

If said multi-verse theory was actually real. It would of destroyed itself by now. Why? Because it would be impossible for each universe to be pressurized to exactly the same ammount.

Have you ever tried filling up an ice cube trey? The most empty, the universe with the biggest *space* would suck all other universes into it until the pressure has equaled out. it does this because like the ice trey when you crack the seal everything pours through the *cubes* or * Universes* Filling it up and falling in the direction of universal pressure.

It is a paradox because even tho multi-verse negates itself even if it were to occure. Its fundamentally based on hopes and dreams rather than concrete science.

Spirits gouls and ghosties? they exist very much in our universe alone and we don't exactly need to obtain them from something humans want to seperate themselves from. It's hilarious because the last thing people want to admit is there is aliens out there that resemble poltergeists, And that scares people because they want to believe some higher power fom some unknown force in some alter reality will fight them in the clash between light and dark.

It would be awesome if the entire universe revolved around what we believed lmao. But it dosn't. And will never conform to us, We have to conform to it, not the other way around. Sorry for the harsh words. But hey i could be completely wrong and we could be among the first chain of universes to take the hit and be dragged down to i guess what spiritualists would call the *lower plain* that would constantly be sinking until it fills up. Also space is currently pressurized. If space had tears leading outside of it, More tears would form until it was just a rip across space in time taring the walls of existance apart.

I'd rather like to think of it as, Turbines and lego blocks. And all the existing physicall mass is * turned on* Where as the non-existing compressed mass is *Turned off* as it replenishes energy from entropy.

His cousin was an assistant to Einstein. One day he ask his
Cousin about the work he was doing.
" Do you understand how all of this science works".
His cousin replied.
"You step on a cats tail and the sun comes up on
the other side".
