And so it is written! A prophecy so told as states an oracle that beyond our sense of reckoning a universe flourished in the evolution of both mind and soul; opposed to that a universe bent on ambition. In this telling, the universe of avarice sped ahead in the time continuum, rushing forward into boundaries of the aforementioned universe. Washed by time, the peripheries began to meld just as the forces of physics had been fully realized. Scientists scrambled for solutions but could not avert the growing apocalypse. It is said that once these burgeoning universes combine to form the lightness of being; in a blinding flash, all will be consumed that was in its path until and all of time, past and present, will became null and void.
AND then there was light! For 40 million years, the mixing bowl of energy and matter swirled back into subsistence, and once again the cycle of metamorphoses began anew. However all energy; as we have discovered, begins with the convergence of light. The beautiful thing about light is that it transverses across multiple planes and even the thickness of dimensions cannot stop its steady flow. Bend it, veer it, twist it, but never halt its path. That from this call of “let there be light” that single explosion of time and space or flash if you believe the big bang folks had been growing exponentially throughout a series of dimensions until it engulfed all that is. Man has been grappling in the darkness these dimensions for thousands of years and was still stuck on three: length x width x depth. And then there came four.
At the turn of the 20th century, a young clerk influenced by HG Well’s Time Machine began dabbling with the concept of a fourth dimension, in order to explain his new theory of relativity. Albert Einstein proposed that the bending of light beams on the planet helped prove a time continuum would be required for his functions to work properly, thus creating the basis for quantum physics as we know it today. Einstein spent the rest of his life in the pursuit of one this singular continuum that would, in turn, explain the make-up of the unfathomable universe. His Theory of Everything required a leap of faith as immense as Genesis posed for the pseudo religious; but, if the leap was made, proof that multiple dimensions exist and multiple universes. Einstein died before his theory could be completed. But in 1957, his interpretation of quantum physics received a jolt, when it was discovered the existence of an objective reality in the form of a wavefunction collapse.
This claim refuted Einstein’s theory of relativity and coincided with the discovery of what astronomers referred to as black holes. These waveform collapses suggest that within the universe there were pockets of time that move in and out of our universe and could not be predicted by the laws of physics. What this suggests is that waveforms or any tangent data enters the universe like one of those Xerox specials and sorts copies of this data into slots along the time continuum.
In 1965, Richard Feynman showed that subatomic particles travel from one location to another along multiple paths through spacetime. His theory of multiple histories suggests that for every decision made in our universe, a completely opposite scenario could play out in another. He proved his theory by discovering that there is a shift in the light given off by hydrogen atoms. Stephan Hawking sought to combine Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and Feynman’s idea of multiple histories into one complete unified theory that would describe everything that happens in the universe. This Nutshell Theory gives rise to multiple descriptions or our past bearing on reality. The universe would not resemble our observed universe; it might be immensely more chaotic or quiescent. In his theory, there is an ebb and flow in time or hypersphere in which the roles of space and time are reversed. This, in turn, helps to explain a cosmic singularity as time and space become mixed in a chaotic maelstrom within a black hole or wavefunction collapse and exonerated Einstein’s Theory of Gravitation, once again.
At the turn of this century, a theory arose to explain this wavefunction collapse by claiming that several other dimensions existed within the scope of the universe. In this String Theory, subparticle strings wind their way across multiple dimensions the way a string on a guitar reverberates to produce a sound. Michio Kaku explains that nature plucks these strings creating a cacophony of notes and that the universe is a symphony playing off each of these strings’ wave forms. In order for the equations to work, the number of dimensions needed to be expanded from four to ten: the original primary, secondary and tertiary along with variances of actions of each and reactions of each, and, of course the pulse of time. But there was a problem that doomed string theory and that was when applied to a cosmic singularity or big bang scenario the equations blow up. From there arose the Supergravity theory, which added an 11th dimension to the mix, in which the string becomes a pulsar and the universe a membrane. It generated a wave of excitement as the ultimate Theory of Everything. However, by integrating the 11th dimension, string theorists realized that all their equations began to make sense. An M-Theory was then derived from the supergravity and string theories as both began converging on the same truths.
From here it is a very minimal stretch to hypothesize the existence of a set of multiple universes that together compromise everything that exists and can exist: the entirety of space, time, matter and energy, including the physical laws and constants that define them. The Multiverse Theory is an interpretation of quantum mechanics, which views reality as a many branched tree, rather than a linear time continuum. In the many-worlds theory, the subjective appearance of wavefunction collapse is explained by the mechanism of quantum decoherence. By decoherence, the many-worlds theory claims to resolve all of the correlative paradoxes of quantum theory, such as the EPR paradoxand Schrödinger’s Cat,since every possible outcome of every event defines or exists in its own “history” or “world”. In layman’s terms, there is a very large—perhaps infinite—number of universes and everything that could possibly have happened in our past, but didn’t, has occurred in the past of some other universe or universes with possibilities of countless consequences evident.
So, imagine, if you will, two universes 1/30th of a second removed. In one resides an agrarian world, working as a collective: no possessions, no greed or hunger, living life in peace. A world that
Seeing the harm that would be done to a living world by pulling out its resources, the people of the planet agreed to advance their technology through reusable energy sources: the pulsing of the ocean waves, harnessing the current of the rivers, the inexhaustible energy of the sun, the majestic magnetism of the moon, and most notably, unleashing the power of the mind. Transports moved by magnetic fields, guided by thought control. Buildings created with the architectural utilization of the planet: lighted by the patterns of the sun, cooled by wind currents permeated through solid walls. A world in peaceful coexistence, bartering for their needs in nonconflicting commerce, no monetary system, no mortgages, tax, surplus, payments, no amortization, insurance, annual taxes, biannual reports.
Imagine, if you will, a world that had not known war in a thousand years, the concept of religion expanded to encompass all, a world that rejects the prospects of technology and deterioration of the earth’s resources for a more mind expanding and peaceful coexistence.
