Scientists from Griffiths University and the University of California claim that parallel universes really do exist and that rather than evolving independently, they influence one another by a subtle force of repulsion. Howard Wiseman, a professor in Physics at Griffith University, says: “The idea of parallel universes in quantum mechanics has been around since 1957. In the well-known ‘Many-Worlds Interpretation”, each universe branches into a bunch of new universes every time a quantum measurement is made.” Continue reading for a detailed documentary by National Geographic and more information.
“Like Everett, Professor Wiseman and his colleagues propose the universe we experience is just one of a gigantic number of worlds. They believe some are almost identical to ours, while most are very different. All of these worlds are equally real, existing continuously through time, and possessing precisely defined properties. They suggest that quantum phenomena arise from a universal force of repulsion between ‘nearby’ worlds which tend to make them more dissimilar,” reports the Daily Mail.
