We hope you enjoyed yesterday’s Plot Bunnies featuring Abandon Places. This is the beginning of a new project that Dave Mornix and I have planned. Each day will post something funny, weird or strange … but with some fact behind it. You can then run with it and use it for your own inspirational purposes or just read it and do nothing the choice is yours.
We often wished for a clone to do a task for us, imagine living in a world … a universe where parallel universes exists! “Freaky Physics Proves Parallel Universes Exist” story by John Brandon, (April 05, 2010) states:
To even try to understand it, you have to think really, really small. Smaller than an atom. Electrons, which circle the nucleus of an atom, are swirling around in multiple states at the same time — they’re hard to pin down. It’s only when we measure the position of an electron that we force it to have a specific location. Cleland’s breakthrough lies in taking that hard-to-grasp yet true fact about the atomic particle and applying it to something visible with the naked eye.
What does it all mean? Let’s say you’re in Oklahoma visiting your aunt. But in another universe, where your atomic particles just can’t keep up, you’re actually at home watching “The Simpsons.” That may sound far-fetched, but it’s based on real science.
“When you observe something in one state, one theory is it split the universe into two parts,” Cleland told FoxNews.com, trying to explain how there can be multiple universes and we can see only one of them.
The multi-verse theory says the entire universe “freezes” during observation, and we see only one reality. You see a soccer ball flying through the air, but maybe in a second universe the ball has dropped already. Or you were looking the other way. Or they don’t even play soccer over there.
Sean Carroll, a physicist at the California Institute of Technology and a popular author, accepts the scientific basis for the multi-verse — even if it cannot be proven.
“Unless you can imagine some super-advanced alien civilization that has figured this out, we aren’t affected by the possible existence of other universes,” Carroll said. But he does think “someone could devise a machine that lets one universe communicate with another.”
It all comes down to how we understand time.
Carroll suggests that we don’t exactly feel time — we perceive its passing. For example, time moves fast on a roller coaster and very slowly during a dull college lecture. It races when you’re late for work . . . but the last few minutes before quitting time seem like hours.
Other Parallel Universes theories:
- Infinite Universes – if you look far enough, you will encounter another version of you, (infinite versions of you), because the observable universe extends only as far as light has had a chance to get to approx 13.77 billion years since the big Bang, the space time beyond that distance can be considered to be it’s own separate universe (a multitude of universes exists next o each other in a giant patchwork quilt of universes)
- Bubble Universes – from the theory called ‘eternal inflation”, the notion that the universe expanded rapidly after the Big Bang, in effect inflating like a balloon creating bubble universes
- Daughter Universes – where every possibility or outcome does occur

A main character having conversations with himself in another universe (a parallel universe)
Stumbling into a worm hole that sends you to another parallel universe

“This must be what a parallel universe is like’, I thought. Everything looked the same, but I suddenly felt like it wasn’t. Like everything had been taken apart, brick by brick, flower bed by flower bed, and put back together in the wrong order. Just like me.”
