That same evidence that supports the Big Bang Theory and cosmic inflation vastly increases the likelihood that there are multiple universes.
With the world still buzzing about the discovery of gravitational waves that give the Big Bang Theory and cosmic inflation a huge stamp of endorsement, scientists have dropped another mind-blowing scientific bomb.
That same evidence vastly increases the likelihood that there are multiple universes.
Said MIT theoretical physicist Alan Guth, "It's hard to build models of inflation that don't lead to a multiverse."
Other important scientists involved in the study of space and time have expressed similar beliefs.
Based on the working theory that the universe filled out suddenly, there’s ample room for the possibility that the expansion rate was uneven.
That could have allowed for the creation of bubbles, or pockets if you prefer, that then went on to form other universes.
We operate under our laws, but they could well have their own sets of rules.
The others could lack atoms and photons, have more dimension, be packed with the gravity eating ‘black energy’ that Nobel level scientists talk about – really, anything.
The existence of such places could serve to explain a lot of the weirdness that scientists have observed over the years.
Proving they’re out there, however, is something our own versions of time and science will have to do on their own.
