Quantum mechanics, though firmly tested, it is so rare and counterintuitive that the famous physicist Richard Feynman once said, “I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics.” Attempts to explain some of the weird consequences of quantum theory have led to some amazing ideas, as the Copenhagen interpretation and many-worlds interpretation.
Now there is a new theory on the block, called the “many worlds interacting” hypothesis (SMI), and the idea is as deep as it seems. The theory suggests not only the existence of parallel worlds, but interact with our world at the quantum level and thus are detectable. Although still speculative, theory can help explain some of the odd last consequences inherent in quantum mechanics reports RT.com.
The theory is a spinoff of the interpretation of many worlds of quantum mechanics – an idea which postulates that all possible alternatives stories and future are real, each representing a real world, but in parallel ,. One problem with many worlds interpretation, however, has been that it is fundamentally unverifiable, since only the observations can be made in our world. What happens in these proposed “parallel” worlds they can therefore only be imagined.
SMI, however, says otherwise. It is suggested that the parallel worlds can interact at the quantum level, and in fact what they do.
“The idea of parallel universes in quantum mechanics has been around since 1957,” said Howard Wiseman , a physicist at Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia, and one of the physicists to reach SMI. “In the known ‘Worlds Multiple Interpretation’, each of the universe branches in a lot of new universes whenever a quantum measurement is performed Therefore, all possibilities are made. – In some universes asteroid killed the dinosaurs Earth lost. In others, Australia was colonized by the Portuguese. ”
“But critics will question the reality of those other universes as they do not influence our universe at all,” he added. “On this point, our” Many Interacting Worlds “approach is completely different, as the name implies.”
Wiseman and his colleagues have proposed that there is “a universal repulsive force between the worlds ‘close’ (ie, similar), which tends to make them more dissimilar.” Quantum effects can be explained by the factorization of this force, they propose.
Whether or not the math is valid will be the ultimate test for this theory. It does or does not correctly predicts quantum effects mathematically? But the theory is certain to provide plenty of fodder for the imagination.
For example, when asked about whether his theory could involve the possibility that humans could someday interact with other worlds, Wiseman said: “It is not part of our theory. But the idea of [human] interactions with other universes is no longer pure fantasy “.
What might look like your life if you made different choices? Maybe someday you may be able to look at one of these alternative worlds and discover.
