I've had those dreams but I disregard them as just dreams. Some have been so vivid that when I wake I'm holding on to the emotions I had during the so called dream.
If this multiverse does in fact exist, it would be amazing, and somewhat fearing. If we collided what would happen?
Like they say.... facts are far more fascinating than fiction!

that last part about a "mother universe" and how the 2 siamese particles could be linked up to a high particle in a different dimension. this really caught my attention. the "mother universe" could have high intellectual beings. We and the siamese universe could be just be lesser beings that branched off from them years and years ago as part of evolutionary processes.

Multi dimensional reality. It can be contended that there is not only a closely familiar universe right next door to this one but that it is interconnected to this one in which we think we live. That we actually live in several universes at once and that we by our actions and thoughts move by our own determination from one to the other. The more we act and think towards our preferred reality, the more we find ourselves there rather than where we were.

While I do think that there may be parallel realities, nothing in the OP's post requires any such thing. Gravity is completely misunderstood, but I do think that issue must be resolved soon - and with that resolution we sweep away Relativity and the so called 'Field Equations'. Basically Einstein set physics back 100 years, and we need to get rid of current theory on Big Bangs, Relativity, Field Equations, Gravity, Dark energy/matter and most of modern cosmology - its all complete unsupported nonsense.
When we replace all these theoretical dreamers with actual experimental physicsists who are trained in plasma physics, and explore an electro-magnetic understanding of the universe, we might start making progress in physics again. We got to the beginning of the 20th century, and almost nothing worthwhile has happened since.
The breakthrough we need to make is by driving through quantum mechanics and deriving what is underneath it - Einstein at least got this much right when he said 'God does not play dice.'
That is not to say that I think that we live in an entirely deterministic universe, but rather that somewhere, somehow information is blending with energy and producing reality - if we can try and discover the rules that govern the information that will be the big breakthrough imo.edit on 6-1-2014 by Amagnon because: (no reason given)
It's great to see someone like Greene hedging his bets by branching away from string theory. It's sad to see so many bright minds wasting their time and lives on a theory that is going nowhere.
So could these alternate universes have existed since the big bang?
I think you mean "parallel universes" or "multiverse" rather than "multi-dimensional".
IMO, an alternate universe literally doesn't exist in our reality and you would have to cease existing in our universe if you somehow passed into another.
Science and the Afterlife Experience
We seek hard evidence that stands up to the most rigorous critical scrutiny. Years before I even considered writing this book, I sought to find such evidence, and after combing through numerous books and journals, I was surprised by the sheer quantity and variety of the evidence for an afterlife. Some of the reports dated back hundreds and even thousands of years. But the most rigorous evidence by far has been gathered in modern times by respected scientists and scholars, beginning in the closing years of the nineteenth century, and continuing to the present day.
however, as a philosopher, I was not content to merely examine the evidence in favor of the survival of death; I knew that any counterarguments must also be fairly and closely examined if we are to arrive at any solid conclusions. I was aware that several philosophers and scientists have doubted or denied that we survive the death of our bodies, and so I began an in-depth study of the skeptical literature. Through reading, discussion, and the occasional debate, I eventually came to understand not only the "skeptical" arguments, but also the motivations of those who deny so vehemently that there is more to human beings than material bodies.
The idea that our minds survive the deaths of our bodies is known as the survival hypothesis, and although many people today associate belief in an afterlife with religious faith, it is important to remember that this belief long predates any organized religion.
