Scientists find evidence of a parallel universe

By T.K. Randall

Are there other universes out there ? Image Credit: PD - Leandro De Carvalho
A science experiment in Antarctica may have discovered particles from a universe where time runs backwards.
The idea that we live in one of a practically limitless number of near-identical worlds is nothing new, having been proposed previously many times by physicists including Hugh Everett, who in 1957 put forward his 'many-worlds interpretation' of quantum mechanics.

Everett's theory suggested that there exists a potentially infinite number of parallel universes in which every possible permutation of history is played out.

So what if there existed a parallel universe in which time literally runs in the opposite direction ?

Incredibly, scientists working at the Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA) - which detects ultra-high energy cosmic-ray neutrinos - may have actually found evidence that such a universe exists.
Low-energy neutrinos are able to pass through our planet without interacting with the solid matter, however the same can't be said for high-energy particles, meaning that any that are detected are effectively coming 'down' from outer space.

In one instance however, the ANITA team detected heavy particles coming 'up' from the Earth, suggesting that they could in fact be from a parallel universe where time runs backwards.

What's more, this was found to have occurred several times.

So could this really be evidence that there is another universe out there ? It's certainly possible, however much work still needs to be done to rule out other possible explanations.

First, I hope you don't think I'm arguing what you said. I'm merely adding on. However, when you say "time running backwards", can you please tell me what you believe that means?

The meaning of time running backward, in the present context, seems to be this: In a parallel universe, time may appear to run backward, from our perspective. Our time may appear to run backward from a point of perspective in the other universe, too. In neither universe would entropy be reversed. Heat would still be lost from a hot object into cooler surroundings, a chicken would not turn into an egg, etc..It's speculated that both universes emerged from the big bang, but are in a sense mirror images of each other.  Each progresses  from point A to point B, to C, etc. It's just that that they ...

Those neutrinos coming out of the ground I've read about before, and seen documentaries mentioning them, during the last years. I haven't heard that they would come from a parallel universe where time runs backwards though. It sounds highly speculative.

Finally found a good, fair-minded article from a reputable source about this parallel universe business, not behind a paywall. Three possibilities appear most reasonable: 1.) Some unknown particle interaction, possibly with the ice beneath the ANITA detector, caused a more common particle to look strange. 2.)The particles detected are new to physics, with a possible connection to super-symmetric theory. 3.) The novel-appearing particles are from a sort of mirror-image universe. The bottom line: At the moment, we don't know which of these is correct, if any, and aren't likely to know until new ... [More]

I think someone’s back peddling on this

Another article on the anomalies detected by the ANITA project, with further details, and an an attempt to explain them, is linked below. It's suggested that elementary particles could assume misleading energy profiles, when they pass through ice of variable density, below the ANITA antennas. A rather long article, but worth the effort, for those who are seriously interested.  It's still conceded that new physics, or ever a parallel universe could be involved. Its proposed that the ice beneath be examined closely by a portable radar unit, to see if the ice-inhomogenity explanation is applicabl... [More]

There are no doubts that parallel universes exist but it is unlikely that energy will leak out into our universe. Most likely, scientists have found a new particle as described above and it is unusual. Nevertheless, some initiates write that other universes may collapse but a stable balance is established in our universe, therefore, universal pralaya does not threaten us. Personally, I doubt that the universe can collapse, individual planets may, yes, but not the whole universe.However, the things there can be so different from ours that it is difficult for us to understand what can happen the...

Not true. They are currently purely hypothetical. Until there is unequivocal empirical evidence, scientifically, doubts must exist.

You don’t have to wait for science and see the state of things yourself. There are many creatures living in our universe, there are many planets and galaxies that mean that life is multiple and, by analogy, we can say that there are multiple universes.If the Absolute has an infinite amount of energy, it can create any number of universes. It is clear that this is not scientific knowledge but a person has a mind to think about what he does not see.Hindus know that there are multiple universes.

Yes you do, otherwise what you have is belief. Belief without evidence should ALWAYS be doubted.
