Parallel Universes Are Real And They Are Interacting With Our Universe, Scientists Say
As part of ongoing efforts to derive a scientifically testable multiverse theory, a team of researchers proposed recently that parallel universes exist and that they influence each other.
The theory that parallel universes exist is termed the multiverse theory. The multiverse theory challenges the older single universe theory by claiming that many universes exist. The multiverse theory was first proposed by physicists in the twentieth century as a way of explaining several baffling aspects of quantum mechanics, a field of physics that seeks to describe the behavior and structure of matter and the physical universe at the small scale level of fundamental particles.
One of the earliest versions of the multiverse theory was the “many-worlds interpretation” of quantum mechanics proposed by physicist Hugh Everett in 1957.
According to Everett’s “many-worlds interpretation” of quantum mechanical phenomena such as the so-called universal wave function, many and perhaps infinite worlds exist as alternate histories and futures of our known universe, and each universe is real.
However, Everett conceived of the parallel universes representing alternate histories of our given universe as existing independently without influencing or interacting with each other.
Everett’s many-worlds interpretation effectively denies the concept of wave function collapse which suggests, under the single universe theory, that each time a quantum measurement is made only one of the myriads of alternative histories of our universe is actualized.
According to Everett, our multiverse is constantly branching into multitudes of equally real universes in which all possible alternative histories are actualized.
Thus, in an Everett many-worlds multiverse, there exists a universe in which you were not born and another in which you were born. There exists a universe in which you died a car crash last week and another in which you became president of the United States. In some universes, Hitler won the Second World War, and in others the Russians nuked Washington at the height of the Cold War.
According to Everett’s interpretation, universes representing all possible alternate histories of our world exist as parallel non-interacting universes.
The idea that parallel universes do not influence each other at all was the major point of criticism of Everett’s theory because from the scientific perspective the idea of parallel non-interacting universes is a non-testable hypothesis.
