Parallel Worlds Not Only Exist But Interact With Our World, Say Physicists


Quantum mechanics suggests parallel worlds affect our own.

The study of quantum mechanics has perhaps thrown up more questions than it has answered, it is the one field of science which has left researchers constantly baffled.

Testing quantum mechanics has led to some interesting theories, the ‘parallel universe’ theory has been borrowed many time for science fiction plots, but there is a very real chance that infinite parallel universes exist outside of our own.

But now scientists think that they have unveiled and even more bizarre dimension to this theory.

They have proposed the “many interacting worlds” (MIW) hypothesis which states that there are many parallel universes, but they are all interacting with each other all the time.
If you think this theory is hard to get your head around, it’s just the beginning of how quantum mechanics actually is.

Physicist Richard Feynman once said “I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics.” Human beings unfortunately know just enough about quantum mechanics to know that we don’t know it at all.

The many worlds theory that has been proposed has tantalized scientists for years, but study of it has been difficult owing to the fact that we have only been able to make observations about our own universe.

But the MIW hypothesis suggests that goings on in our own universe are constantly being influenced by other universes slipping in and out of our own, on a quantum level.

Howard Wiseman, a physicist from Griffith University in Brisbane said: 

“The idea of parallel universes in quantum mechanics has been around since 1957. But critics question the reality of these other universes, since they do not influence our universe at all. On this score, our “Many Interacting Worlds” approach is completely different, as its name implies.”

Wiseman and his team have proposed that there is a “a universal force of repulsion between ‘nearby’ (i.e. similar) worlds” between realities. Wiseman said “It’s not part of our theory. But the idea of [human] interactions with other universes is no longer pure fantasy.”
