Scientists in Australia appear to have come up with a plausible parallel universe explanation
In a paper appearing in “Physical Review X” a few years ago appears to bring credible science to the theory. Michael Hall and his team from Griffith University suggest we live within “Many Interacting Worlds” (MIW).
Science vs Science Fiction
It is an idea that is constantly explored in literature, film, and TV. Currently TV shows like “Stranger Things” portray an interaction between parallel worlds.
Theoretical physicists such as Hugh Everett have proposed such hypotheses since the 1950s. And now these ideas seem to be measuring up to the complicated mathematics of quantum physics.
Hall and his team have sought to bridge the gap between classical Newtonian physics and quantum mechanics. According to the paper, parallel universes seem to be that bridge.
The physicists work with the premise that for every action, a reaction occurs
However, they claim that each reaction branches out into an alternative universe. The idea is that there are an enormous number of universes layered like thin pancakes upon each other.
This, they explain, measures up with the atomic observations. What occurs inside an atom is not determinable before an experimenting upon it. And each theoretical universe is not determinable until realizing a potential outcome.
Quantum physicists claim that particles within an atom can have upper and lower spins simultaneously
They also appear in multiple places at once. However, in our real world reality, these rules don’t apply. Our everyday world appears Newtonian.
They argue, that if we have multiple worlds constantly branching out, then this is why we observe the activity of particles as we do. On a particle level, they hypothesize, we are viewing the multiple worlds playing out simultaneously.
Opponents and Skeptics
A healthy scientific inquiry is rife with debate and skeptical analysis of proposed hypotheses. There are many theoretical physicists who oppose the MIW theory.
