[T]he idea that we live in a “multiverse” made up of an infinite number of parallel universes has long been considered a scientific possibility – although it is still a matter of vigorous debate among physicists. The race is now on to find a way to test the theory, including searching the sky for signs of collisions with other universes.
The Theory Of Parallel Universes Is Not Just Maths – It Is Science That Can Be Tested

In an astonishingly short 8.5 minutes, Neil explains it all for us lay folks. Enjoy.
P.S. Major kudos to the sketch artist Henry Reich as well. The illustrations are amazing in their accuracy and simplicity.

It’s amazing that someone figured out a way to capture this. And, the image is quite beautiful as well.

First, I hate when people call these brand new thoughts theories. Theory in science does not mean what it means in a court of law. It means something that is tried and at least fairly well proven. It makes predictions, can be used to do calculations, and may even have engineering applications.
Anyway, this is an interesting hypothesis. I wonder if it will make testable predictions, and if so, what they will be. Then, I will be very interested to hear whether the tests have been implemented and whether the hypothesis passes the tests.
Until then, this is merely an amusing thing to think about. Let’s see how this pans out.
