Freaky physics prove parallel universes exist

Its the stuff of science fiction but now some scientists believe parallel universes really do exist.

An unusual discovery suggesting a quantum state can be observed by the human eye opens up a range of new ideas and possibilities including the notion that time travel might actually be possible.

"Look past the details of a wonky discovery by a group of California scientists -- that a quantum state is now observable with the human eye -- and consider its implications: Time travel may be feasible."

I believe the scientists that have pretty much proven that parallel universes truly exist. I don't believe the skeptics on this forum who use pseudo-science in an attempt to debunk everything that seems the least bit paranormal or unconventional.

I'm sad I missed the beginnings of this thread. First off, "What the bleep do we know" is about hippies pushing their pseudo-science agenda. There's only 1 real scientist in the series and he holds he was tricked into being in it (they mislead him) and sued to be taken off but lost. The experiment is a new step in an old experiment. The new step is achieving it at a higher energy level. The principle is called quantum superposition. Time travel or parallel universe travel is science fiction and no one involved in the experiment thinks they can achieve those things through... [More]

I agree with that physicist.

Maybe thats a clue, words dont matter... only feeling

The article is very interesting!But I don't understand the hostillity towards the sciencetists! I have no idea if paralle universes exist or not,but the very fact sciencetists are saying they do would seem that there's a definite possibility.There's a fair amount that believe in it,it's not just a bunch of wackjobs that believe in it. And Time Travel again,most sciencetists do believe to travel into the future is a definite possibility,they are just split on the going back into the past idea.A lot believe that's not possible. If alternative universes exist I wonder ... [More]

Except they haven't, they even admitted they can't prove it. 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. Because the article is crap. This explains the Many-Worlds interpretation better.

i wish i understood any of it. not to sound too dull. interesting post none the less, could somebody do the laymens stuff please?! Thanks,

Don't worry all this quantum stuff is a load of codswallop! Basically science has come to a dead end and it is wildly trying to convert what is fundamentally magic into pseudo science. Before scientists become too comfortable with their discipline I wish to remind them that quantum mechanics cannot be reconciled with relativity even after all this time! The equation which is supposed to link the theory of the world of the very small with Einstein's theory of relativity actually arrives at infinity - in other words nonsense! We cannot have relativity (as in general rela... [More]

Thanks for the reply! i agree? lol?

First off, what do you mean by ``after all this time''? The theoretical framework for quantum electrodynamics was more or less complete in the 1950s, and electroweak theory was only developed in 1968. Quantum chromodynamics was only really nailed down in the 1970s, and even today it is still very much in development. So 100 years of unsuccessful attempts at quantizing gravity is a failure? Isaac Newton worked out the basics of classical mechanics in 1687, it took over 200 years before Einstein managed to ``unify'' Newtonian Mechanics with Maxwellian Electrodynamics. Physic... [More]
