One theory that could hint at the possibility of being able to travel through dimensions would be the quantum string theory with the combination of the bending time theory. Time sure is relative, but it measures distance. If you could speed up faster than the expansion of the Universe, you could perhaps travel through any matter, time would probably stop when you traveled faster than the rate of expansion of the Universe, and you could get to the other alternate Universe easily, with due time.
Time stops (supposedly) at the speed of light, not when you're going faster than the universe is expanding (and it's impossible for you to do both at the same time, if the universe was expanding at the speed of light, time would stand still because everything in the universe would also be going faster than the speed of light). Also, when you're talking about an alternate universe, are you talking about a universe that exists as this one's 'neighbor' in the sense that if you exit this universe you'll bump into the next? (this universe is supposedly infinite, btw, but yet they say it's ever expanding, a bit contradictory huh?)
To go beyond the speed of light: You need an infinite amount of energy, just not possible. Bypasses such as wormholes are more plausible.
speed>>>mass and weight and force of the Universe
Speed^X+the distance where the alternate universe you want to travel to exists
where the X is the amplifier power of the speed of light, how many times you need to travel beyond the speed of light to get to it. The distance in the formula represents where the alternate reality is.
you can't travel beyond the speed of light in the sense that you accelerate beyond it. As you approach the speed of light, the energy required to continue accelerating increases infinitly. I don't think you were implying that you just speed up and go several times faster than speed of light, but just in case wanted to throw that out there.
you can't say that there is a distance (in the sense of miles, km, etc.) between this universe and a possible alternate universe because you don't know what's between them. It certainly can't be space as we know it. Traveling between universis is like traveling through time ONLY in that it isn't a matter of just traveling (as in passing through space) from point a to point b.
So therefore to sum it algebraically
Distance beyond the Universe, being one variable, N,
speed, being how far you have to go, beyond the rate of expansion, being X.
da, being the destination, and its version of the Universe.
