Brian Geene's 9 Types of Multiverses


Recommended Posts

Brian Greene is a theoretical physicist.


Taken from: Multiverse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia




The quilted multiverse works only in an infinite universe. With an infinite amount of space, every possible event will occur an infinite number of times. However, the speed of light prevents us from being aware of these other identical areas.




The inflationary multiverse is composed of various pockets in which inflation fields collapse and form new universes.




The brane multiverse follows from M-theory and states that our universe is a 3-dimensional brane that exists with many others on a higher-dimensional brane or "bulk". Particles are bound to their respective branes except for gravity.




The cyclic multiverse (via the ekpyrotic scenario) has multiple branes (each a universe) that have collided, causing Big Bangs. The universes bounce back and pass through time until they are pulled back together and again collide, destroying the old contents and creating them anew.




The landscape multiverse relies on string theory's Calabi–Yau spaces. Quantum fluctuations drop the shapes to a lower energy level, creating a pocket with a set of laws different from that of the surrounding space.




The quantum multiverse creates a new universe when a diversion in events occurs, as in the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.




The holographic multiverse is derived from the theory that the surface area of a space can simulate the volume of the region.




The simulated multiverse exists on complex computer systems that simulate entire universes.




The ultimate multiverse contains every mathematically possible universe under different laws of physics.

Trevor, I agree this is interesting. I'm curious first about the landscape multivariate theory. If this so called pocket is created then will everything go around it or through it since it has a different set of laws?


Side note: I have never researched this before and am a new to the theory.

Yep, many don't know about these different theories. The question is, which one do you believe in? Would it be possible to have more than one type? I believe the Quantum Multiverse is pretty close to what I believe and there are articles claiming that scientists have mathematically proven that a holographic universe is possible. IMHO, I don't see a holographic one being the sole type, though.
