According to a team of research, there are multiple timelines playing out in parallel universe. According to a report in the New York post, a team of physicians said that parallel universe do exist and affect each other and they have already started interacting each other.
Moreover, there are multiple timelines in the multiple universes; therefore, time travel is conceivable.
Professor Howard Wiseman and Dr Michael Hall, from Griffith University’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics and Dr Dirk-Andre Deckert, from the University of California came up with the Many Interacting Worlds Theory that gives a whole new perspective on the ideas underlying quantum theory.
They are spearheading a project that proposes a landmark theory suggesting that these parallel universes operate in the same time and space as our own. What’s even more interesting is that they are interacting with ours on a quantum level. The theory goes almost against all conventional understanding of space and time.
According to physicist Howard Wiseman, the idea of parallel universe has existed in quantum mechanics since 1957 — called the Many-Worlds Interpretation, which suggests that every time a quantum measurement is made, each universe bifurcates into a group of new universes.
In his opinion, “All possibilities are realized therefore – in some universes the dinosaur-killing asteroid missed Earth. In others, Australia was colonized by the Portuguese.”
If there really are multiple, interacting universes, then it would be possible for time travelers to visit Earth, and very imaginable scenario would be played out in a parallel universe at some point.
However, the ‘Many Worlds’ theory proposes to explain the inexplicable aspects of quantum mechanics – a field of physics that deals with the structure and behaviour of matter as well as our physical world at the small scale of fundamental mechanics.
“In the well-known ‘Many-Worlds Interpretation’, each universe branches into a bunch of new universes every time a quantum measurement is made. All possibilities are therefore realized — in some universes the dinosaur-killing asteroid missed Earth. In others, Australia was colonized by the Portuguese.” Wisemaman added.
The alternative and a more believable story is that of the ‘Many Interacting Worlds’ theory that suggests that these worlds not only overlap but constantly connect with one another in the same space and time.
While some researchers thinks this is a ‘huge waste of time’, others have called it a ‘very nice analysis’. But if the ‘Many Interacting Worlds’ theory holds true, we are in for many worlds of surprise.
