Parallel Universes are an outcome of human thinking and extensive debate about the observable universe. The universe is a place that encompasses not only what we see in space, but also what we cannot see. When we look at the earth and everything that’s included in it, the notion of a powerful and symmetric design strengthens. There develops a sense of interconnection and everything somehow supports or gets support from something. It is all complex and tangled or intertwined. Let’s dive right into it and discuss parallel universes.
Rain is an independent phenomenon as we all know. Water heated under sunlight or evaporated under any circumstances converts into clouds. These clouds under the influence of wind, at certain atmospheric pressure, travel long distances and transport large quantities of water from one place to another. This phenomenon is there for an unknown period in history and has made water levels rise asymmetrically around the globe in terms that it is now famously known that there is water underneath the soil.
The wind is there due to tidal activity which is caused by the gravitational pull, tidal activity, and another complex scientific phenomenon. Sunlight is there due to the sun, and the ongoing chemical reactions taking place on it. Similarly, it doesn’t travel independently but relies on the atmosphere to provide it a medium through which it can travel. To understand the importance of this medium, consider thinking about opaque objects which do not allow light to pass. Not only the opaque object but denser objects also tend to stop the traveling distance of light such as light does not travel far underwater.
Now, see how we started with rain and ended up at the light. The more and more discussion or thought process progresses over the natural phenomenon, we can write down more and more scientific hypotheses, and theories, and ultimately check if further processing, investigation, and testing help us reach concrete facts. The world has somehow justified or required reasoning for everything that is often visible and other times are hidden.
Did you see how in just a single phenomenon of nature, there were several other things involved for just it to rain? We talked about sunlight, heat, wind, atmospheric pressure, and several other interconnected ideas or phenomenon of nature. Let’s talk more about it to make a more clear point that will help us understand parallel universes as well.
The logic behind Parallel Universes
As we have seen in previous examples that different realities act together to yield another visible outcome. Like in the case of rain, wind and other realities acted together. Similarly, we often look at the final results and then investigate the reason why such a phenomenon is there and then we reach the reasons upon investigation, testing, or adoption of other scientific and common sense procedures. For example, penicillin was developed by an accident -after a two-week holiday, the scientist met penicillin, an amazing cure. But the reason behind the discussion of this accidental outcome was to tell that often a final product helps us find and reach the reason(s) behind its existence.
There is one more case for today’s discussion and that is, predicting something by looking at actions that might yield something in the future. For example, when you see a pan or any cooking utensil with water in it in an oven or cooking stoke, can you predict the future of that very water? I guess, everyone can. The future is either the water will overflow after reaching a certain temperature or will evaporate entirely or both overflow and evaporate.
Similarly, when it comes to theories that support parallel universes, we take the lastly discussed approach -predicting the future or other realities that might exist in parallel to our reality. One more thing that will help solidify these arguments is our perception of reality and belief in reality. The perception of reality is what we perceive as right or wrong using our five senses. The perception of reality improves with several traits or accomplishments in life such as education, research, strong observation, and extensive debates and sharing of ideas.
Lastly, the belief in reality -defines how optimistic or ready we are in believing a certain thing to be true. For example, have you ever seen mount, Everest? Or have you verified it using your five senses, if it’s the world’s highest mountain? The simple answer for a majority is NO. We all believe that it is the world’s tallest building for the reason this news has been repeatedly telecasted and broadcasted over other mediums of information and communication technology. Until someone denounces it on similar grounds and satisfies all the initial mediums of information sharing, Mount Everest will remain the tallest mountain.
Finally the Parallel Universes Itself.
Earth circumambulates the sun, all the planets and stars are orbiting in their respective path or orbits. Where did this earth come from? If we can’t, then how we can predict precisely something that happened in the past? The answer is, by looking at our surroundings and trying to answer the thought behind things, just as in the case of a water bucket on the stove. Scientists concluded that the earth came into existence due to a big bang. More on the big bang theory later, but that big bang theory yields an interesting debate. And that debate goes like hereunder.
The big bang was the start of this universe as per the thinking of a majority of vocal scientists. It was all just packed in a minutely small particle that blasted and kept expanding since then. This blast resulted in the creation of several fireballs or so to say planets as we know them today. All these planets had initially no sign of life on them as it was too hot, flaming hot. However, gradually it started cooling. Although it is unknown where that energy or heat dissipates. It dissipated into the environment, but the total energy of the system remains constant, more on this later.
The parallel universes are to be created at the same time in another portion of the universe that we know today which must have had the same conditions, circumstances, and outcomes that resulted in the creation or formation of Earth. For example, matter packed closely in a chamber, when blasted under its influence will not yield things into components. Let’s understand it with a very clear example of Pepperoni Pizza. Consider that the object that was to yield everything in this universe was not mattered but Pepperoni Pizza. Now as soon as the blast took place and everything came out of singularity as per Stephen Hawking’s point of view, what products will it yield?
I hear you saying that it will yield shreds of Pepperoni Pizza scattered all over the place, or in our case universe. Right, it would never have yielded the ingredients of Pepperoni Pizza. Like, when the blast occurred, it blasted yielding all-purpose flour, egg, spices, olives, mushrooms, and everything separately. So, exactly this analogy yields that according to the defined process of how this universe came into being? and how many universes are there? There should be many universes and parallel universes.
If you want to learn more about what is a parallel universe, we have written a detailed post on that topic. Now, coming back to the topic. As there must be identical universes to that of earth, we can say that there could be many more piles of earth out there in the universe. Why we haven’t seen it yet? It is because the universe is soo big and we have not discovered it fully yet and it’s not possible anywhere soon in the future.
Those parallel universes could have entirely the same environments as we have on earth. Those parallel universes can have their own Suns and Moons. Their entirely identical or slightly changed atmospheric and environmental patterns with human species either identical to humans or superhumans.
Conclusion of Parallel Universes
Parallel universes could be there because the reasons that concluded in the creation or formation of the universe are not special to Earth. There could be many parallel piles of earth with similar atmospheres and environments. There could be a parallel you in those places as we are nothing but just a complex organisms. And these complex organisms originated from simple cells that are not special to earth. Life could be supported by an identical Sun and moons.
