I saw the documantary with Michio Kaku and i was amazed.
Is the 4th dimention also a parallel univerese?


Yeah I do believe it, Michio Kaku is really a smart person, listening him talk on The Universe series is always mind-blowing.

hmmm not sure weather I believe in it or not, these things are proven and disproven with a degree of mathmatical understanding greater than I posess!

However I did listen to this podcast on the subject earlier in the day and found it very interesting.....http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/blog/ ... im-jackson

I found the idea that dark matter is in fact a gravitational pull from another universe especialy interesting.....

it also talks about how their looking for evidence of the multiverse theory with the LHC...

enjoy!

First they have to find the Higgs Boson.

Aren't the theories of several universes strictly theoretical?

I agree with ruveyn.

It is impossible for one to extrapolate such information with so little proof. Science only goes so far to explain phenomena.

But it does make for good science fiction. Yes?

If it was true, me in the parallel universe would be loud and confident and typical NT.

Far less silly than all the various religious beliefs. For my part I simply do not know and I am at ease with my ignorance, the obvious question to people who flat out deny the possibility of multiverse/parallel universe hypothesis is why?

I am very much fond of the Multiverse Theory. It actually sounds very likely to be true once you read up on it.

Though I can't say that I am 100% sure that it's true (since it hasn't been proven to be right, just likely to be true because of it making sense in a lot of ways with what we know to be true today, and other theories likely to be true), but I sure hope it is.

I am very amused by the many-worlds hypothesis but there is not an iota of empirical evidence to support it.

While there is a branch of mathematics that supports the idea, there is "not one iota" of valid material evidence to support the actual claim for parallel universes.

No, the 4th dimension is just another mathematical concept that is used to explain certain quantum phenomenae, such as the fractional spin of an electron.

It makes QM the stochastic nature of QM a lot easier to work with mentally. Hopefully the evidence will support it, or better yet string theory.

I have no idea. It could be possible, but I don't think we'll ever know until we find some way to create singularity.

I believe it is theoretically possible, but have yet to see any evidence to suggest there is or isn't.

In short, the many worlds hypothesis is a speculation, not an established by evidence fact.
