That might sound like what happens when a poet reads a physics textbook, but it's an actual theory put forward by Stephen Hawking-grade scientists.  Stephen Hawking, in fact, and Professor Thomas Hertog of CERN, who came up with a unique answer to how the universe began: "In every way imaginable."

That's not the result of chemically-assisted consciousness, either, they actually derived their way to that solution to solve problems in the existing approach. Physics is excellent at starting somewhere and working out what happens afterwards - but when the whole question is "how did things start?" you can't do that.

Uhu, it's one of the already well-established speculations.

This kind of thing confuses my brain.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

I think the main point (although the sound-bite style article is woefully short on details) is that Hawking and Hertog have found a way of quantitatively identifying evidence of the early multiple-reality form of the universe as discontinuities in the cosmic microwave background radiation.

Of course Triade is completely right. The Daily Galaxy article may have indeed been `news' back when Hawking and Hertog actually wrote their paper (arXiv link) back in 2006!

Apparently on slow news days editors at the Daily Galaxy search through old research.
