In order to put forth tangible proof that backs the multiverse or ‘Many Worlds’ theory, scientists have finally confirmed that parallel universes exist and that they have already started interacting with ours.
Scientist Howard Wiseman of Griffith University, Australia, is spearheading a project that proposes a landmark theory suggesting that these parallel universes operate in the same time and space as our own. What’s even more interesting is that they are interacting with ours on a quantum level, as reported by IFL Science.
The multiverse theory debunks the 20th-century single verse theory that suggested only one universe existed. However, the ‘Many Worlds’ theory proposes to explain the inexplicable aspects of quantum mechanics – a field of physics that deals with the structure and behaviour of matter as well as our physical world at the small scale of fundamental mechanics.
However, even the ‘Many Worlds’ theory doesn’t show the interaction between these universes. According to its traditional interpretation, several universes came to life after a celestial event occurred – like an asteroid hitting the Earth.
The alternative and a more believable theory is that of the ‘Many Interacting Worlds’ theory that suggests that these worlds not only overlap but constantly connect with one another in the same space and time.
While some researchers think this is a ‘huge waste of time’, others have called it a ‘very nice analysis’. But if the ‘Many Interacting Worlds’ theory holds true, we are in for many worlds of surprise!
