My parallel universe counterpart is preventing me from commenting.

evidence exists in the other universe.
of course, there they have global cooling...

“Parallel universes really do exist,”

I was just there, very nice but everything was backward.

Parallel universe is still just a theory...No evidence exists....

But, in one of the other parallel universes, the evidence does exist and it's not called a theory. It's called the law of parallel universes.

This is another good example of scientifically illiterate journalists converting an interesting story into a “gee whiz astounding science” fable based on a stupid claim about the relationship between physics and mathematics. Their work is an interesting step providing support for a particular interpretation of quantum mechanics. Nothing more. For a more realistic view of what’s going on in physics, read this:

Not Even Wrong: The Failure of String Theory And the Search for Unity in Physical Law (Hardcover)

Yea, infinite parallel universes, thats the ticket. If an infinite number of parallel universes is what it takes to make the math work, then it’s not much of a theory. In other words, it’s utter b.s.

I got a suggestion for these physicists, you’ve recently dumped 10 dimensions in favor of 11 dimensions, take another step and go to 12 dimensions.

proposed a mathematical model to account for a result predicted by another mathematical model.

The mathematical models I've proposed to (36-24-36), had very predictable results from both.

NO

Sure enough, there is.

That universe would be the one where liberals rule and everything goes to hell, including all the other universes..

There's another one where Islam rules and time has stood still since the seventh century.

No. There is an infinite number of the same thread in an finite number of universes. I remember years ago there was a SNG episode about this. Something got screwed up and all the universes began to converge and the Enterprise kept replicating and replicating.

You could slip into a parallel universe and never notice. In fact this could be happening 400 billion times a second.

Which leads me to doubt the whole theory.

No, because once the new parallel universe comes into existance, it expands into a different universal space completely seperate from your universe. Thereby effecting nothing in our universe. << I may be stating this slightly wrong, i.e. universal space may not be what the physicists are calling this.

This acceptance of parallel universes is because of the collapse of “string theory”. Which is kind of where they were before advent of string theory anyway.

I got a suggestion for these physicists, you’ve recently dumped 10 dimensions in favor of 11 dimensions, take another step and go to 12 dimensions.

In all seriesness though, this theory of parallel universes has been kicking about for decades (read: Stephen Hawking's "A Brief History of Time"), but it has never able to have been proven, and probably might never be, at least not by us mere Earthlings. Only God holds the answer, and he ain't speaking to us about it.

Otherwise, theories such as Quantum Mechanics predict how a Transistor is supposed to work, but it still baffles physicists why it even works at all .... but there it is, trillions upon trillions of manmade Transistors ticking away doing their thing in our technological world.

Likewise, Aerodynamics says that a Bee is not supposed to be able to fly ... but there they are flying about, going from flower to flower gathering pollen, flying with the greatest of ease and control.

LOL. Will I have to wait an infinite number of 10 days before I will be cured? Whew! It’s hard to get the brain around this infinite number of possibilities. Of course, as a fan of Quantum Physics, I have contemplated this theory many times. It still boggles the mind.

That explains a few things that have happened over the last few years - we got forked in time.

Things could be worse. Imagine being in a universe where Al Gore won the 2000 election, or in which #42 won a third term.

I agree with what you are saying. In a later posting I noted that they have gone back to the parallel universe theory. So this really isn’t new at all.

I do not care for Hawking, he is more thief than theorist as far as I am concerned.

I think God could have programmed the universe in 12 dimensions. I wasn’t kidding on my initial comment.

I am looking for the next big real Theory to be the “Theory of Gravity”. I.e. a real explanation of as the Force we all know it needs to be. Look for it to have a teeny tiny mass component (of course) (sub-atomic) and a speed which EXCEEDS that of light by 2 to 3 times.

I find it interesting to read about "parallel universe" theories...

I sometimes see someone writing about an infinite number of universes (universi?) that have all possible differentiations of the possible happening. Then there's an example given, such as "in one universe, so-and-so was killed in that accident, but in our universe, he lives."

I don't see why you would even attempt to give an axample if there are an "infinity" of universes... What of the universe where everything is EXACTLY the same, except that I mistakenly typed an "O" instead of an "I" in this sentence? "P"? "L"? Or the exciting, almost exactly the same universe, but in this universe, I blinked one extra time in a day? What an incredible waste of a universal existence!

Parallel universes? Perhaps... But I don't think I can get behind "infinite universes" theory. I'm hoping a Technological Singularity (Google it! :) will provide the ultimate answers.

Of course, this is only my belief in this universe.

As advertised it’s hogwash. No matter how elegant the mathematics, the many-worlds ‘interpretation’ of quantum mechanics is utterly unnecessary. It’s all just an attempt to force the wierdness of quantum mechanics into a mentality formed by classical mechanics.

I’d have to read the paper, but it seems quite implausible that any interpretation of QM adds predictive capacity so as to be experimentally distinguishable from any other interpretation.

Well now, maybe he did - "Calleth a thing that is not as though it were..." and it will be

which is the Law of Manifesting - which is believing what you 'call for' already exists and you can 'gather' it out of the Zero Point Field which is - the causal power in the Universe which is = the Force = all of which is= Quantum physics...

which all means, this knowledge ain't new. We just don't listen to good
