A team of researchers proposes that parallel universes not only exist but also interact with each other influencing each other with a subtle force of repulsion.
That is, instead of evolving independently, these nearby worlds are conditioned. Researchers believe that their theory could help explain some of the strangest phenomena of quantum mechanics.
The concept of universes or parallel worlds refers to the existence of several universes or relatively independent realities.
Does this concept have a scientific basis? It seems that yes, since the development of quantum mechanics, the search for a ‘Theory of Everything’ and other hypotheses of current physics have hinted at the possibility of the existence of multiple dimensions and parallel universes.
From this perspective of seeking explanations for the most incomprehensible phenomena of quantum mechanics, a team of researchers from the University of Griffith and the Griffith Center for Quantum Dynamics, in Australia, works; and from the University of California, in the United States.
In this case, what the researchers propose – and in this lies the novelty of their approach – is that parallel universes not only exist but also interact with each other influencing each other by a subtle force of repulsion.
That is, instead of evolving independently, these nearby worlds condition each other.
Scientists Howard Wiseman, Michael Hall and Dirk-Andre Deckert also show in an article published in the prestigious journal Physical Review X, that such interaction could explain all the strange elements of quantum mechanics that, when applied at a macroscopic scale, “They seem to violate the laws of cause and effect.”
According to a statement issued by Griffith University, Professor Wiseman and his collaborators propose more specifically the following:
On the one hand, that the universe we experience is only one among a gigantic number of worlds. Some of these are almost identical to ours, but most are very different.
On the other hand, scientists argue that all these worlds are equally real, existing continuously over time; and that possess precise properties.
They also point out that all quantum phenomena arise from a universal force of repulsion between the ‘near’ (i.e. similar) worlds, which tends to make them more dissimilar.
Michael Hall finally says that his theory, baptized as “Many Worlds in Interaction” could even generate an extraordinary possibility: prove the existence of other worlds.
Hall explains about “Many Worlds in Interaction” that its beauty is that, “if there is only one world, this theory will be reduced to Newtonian mechanics; but if there is a gigantic number of worlds it will reproduce quantum mechanics. ”
This approach therefore, adds the physicist, “predicts something new that is neither Newtonian theory nor quantum theory.”
“We believe that, by providing a new mental image of quantum effects, it will be useful in planning experiments aimed at testing and exploiting quantum phenomena,” for example, in areas such as molecular dynamics, where they play an important role in reactions. chemical
Prudence is a maxim when physics tells us about invisible spaces. But we could also face a profound paradigm shift that would revolutionize our understanding of nature and that would open new fields of possible scientific thoughts.
While the tests arrive or not, and fortunately, in the parallel universe of the imagination, the multiple worlds continue to generate exciting realities.
