Science Or Fiction: Could Parallel Universes Be Real?

Posted by K R on

Books, television shows, and films have different theories about the existence of parallel universes. It's a fascinating notion that many believe is good for science fiction. However, it seems that their existence is now becoming a respectable possibility among physicists. By definition, people cannot visit "alternate" universes. Meaning, even if they are true, there is no way to prove that they can exist. BBC noted that the most common notion is that in alternate universes, people have doppelgangers who live similar lives. This is the also the theory that many seem to like and have been popular among many fictional works such as "The Man in the High Castle" and "Worlds Without End." There have been different theories about parallel universes. The patchwork universe theory says that the multiverse is the result of the infinite size of our universe and is then divided into a patchwork of regions so that we can't see one another. Another is the inflationary multiverse, which says that when the Big Bang happened, there is a patch of ordinary space that contained no matter but has energy within it that is a sort of "false vacuum." This "false vacuum" should also experience an inflation, and when it expands, other bubble universe can appear within it in a scenario called "eternal inflation." Read More: Science World Report
