Does a Parallel Universe really exist? Part II

We have already started discussing in a previous article whether a Parallel Universe really exists, prodded by some material generously provided by our dear son Gian Luca. Continuing our discussion of the physical possibility that more than one Universe might exist along ours, we will now start discussing the ideas of some renowned physicists and philosophers, some for and others against that theory. We will rather take the time to expose other people’s ideas so you, dear readers, can eventually form an informed opinion. Of course this will oblige us to dig in this interesting topic in depth so eventually we all will learn something about it. Remember that nobody is born “knowing anything” except the uniquely distinctive  smell of our dear mothers’ flesh that we pick up on our way down from their vaginas along the inside part of their legs.

Muchas gracias Mamita querida !!!

Today we will discuss the theory of Dr. Max Tegmart, a Professor of Physics in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), that believes there might be four types:

a) Type I: it assumes that Space is Infinite. and we share the same physical laws of other universes similar to ours but at a distance so insurmountable that no messages of any kind can be interchanged with these realms. We can emit to and receive messages from the universes that can be reached by our best telescope, which at present is the NASA’s Hubble Telescope.

b) Type II: these parallel universes might be influenced by the inflationary pressures that might explain the expansion of our own universe. The Inflation and the Ekpyrotic Theories claim that this scientifically proven expansion is making communication between “us” and “them” much more difficult.

c)  Type III: this is the type of alternate universe we usually picture, which consists of a parallel version of ours, coexisting in different physical spaces. The Many Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics says that for every possible quantum option A in this universe, there is another universe in which the option B did come to fruition; it is called the wave function collapse.

d) Type IV: in this alternative explanation, those parallel universes obey to physical laws that are very different from the ones governing ours. Is this possible?

Scientists and philosophers have been debating lately which are the Laws of Physics that rule all these possible universes, without arriving at a clear, unified explanation. Dr. Stephen Hawking has sagely cautioned us that we should always take with a grain of salt any possible interpretation of every general law of Physics. He said:

“Even if there is only one possible unified theory, it is just a set of rules and equations. What is it that breathes the fire into the equations and makes a universe for them to describe?”

We will continue exposing the ideas and critiques of renowned scientists and philosophers in future articles of this series so we can study and ponder them together.

 Stay distant. Stay safe. Stay beautiful.
