The scientists, at Griffith University, claim that they’ve taken interacting parallel worlds out of the realm of science fiction and into that of hard science.
The team of academics says that parallel universes interact with nearby worlds influencing each other by a subtle force of repulsion.
This theory, the team avers, explains the anomalistic and strange phenomena in quantum mechanics.
Professor Howard Wiseman says: “The universe we experience is just one of a gigantic number of worlds. Some are almost identical to ours while most are very different.”
He added: “All of these worlds are equally real, exist continuously through time, and possess precisely defined properties.”
The theory predicts something new that isn’t Newtonian nor confirms to quantum theory. He believes that it will be possible to test for the existence of such worlds.
