Parallel Universes -
dreams layered within dreams
Everything you're about to read sounds far fetched & science fiction. Yet,
this comes from the greatest
minds in science today.
Scientists now believe there may really be a parallel universe -
in fact, there may be an infinite number of parallel
universes, and we just happen to live in one of
them. These other universes contain space, time and strange forms of exotic
matter. Some of them may even contain you, in a slightly different form.
Astonishingly, scientists believe that these parallel universes exist less than
one millimeter away from us. In fact, our gravity is just a weak signal leaking
out of another universe into ours.
The Same But Different
years parallel universes were a staple of the Twilight Zone. Science fiction
writers loved to speculate on the possible other universes which might exist.
In one, they said, Elvis Presley might still be alive or in another the
British Empire might still be going strong. Serious scientists dismissed all
this speculation as absurd. But now it seems the speculation wasn't absurd
enough. Parallel universes really do exist
and they are much stranger than even the science fiction writers dared to
all started when superstring theory, hyperspace and dark matter made
physicists realize that the three dimensions we thought described the Universe
There are actually 11 dimensions.
By the time they had finished they'd come to the conclusion that
our Universe is just one bubble among an infinite number
of membranous bubbles which ripple as they wobble
through the eleventh dimension.
A Creative Touch
imagine what might happen if two such bubble universes touched. Neil Turok
from Cambridge, Burt Ovrut from the University of Pennsylvania and Paul
Steinhardt from Princeton believe that has happened. The result? A very big
bang indeed and a new universe was born - our Universe. The idea has shocked
the scientific community; it turns the conventional Big Bang theory on its
head. It may well be that the Big Bang wasn't really the beginning of
everything after all. Time and space all existed before it. In fact Big Bangs
may happen all the time.
course this extraordinary story about the origin of our Universe has one
alarming implication. If a collision started our Universe, could it happen
again? Anything is possible in this extra-dimensional cosmos. Perhaps out there
in space there is another universe heading directly towards us - it may only be
a matter of time before we collide.
