3, or perhaps more. It depends on the theory to which you ascribe. For example, recent research done at the Princeton Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) led to the creation of ekpyrotic theory. According to ekpyrotic theory, our universe and its creation stems from the collision of two "branes" that could theoretically and literally represent parallel universes. According to Julian Barbour, an infinite number of parallel universes exist, since every time a decision is made on either the microscopic or macroscopic level, a bifurcation is created leading to the birth of a new "universe". Long answer short, minimally 2 parallel universes, maximally infinit.

The theory is John Wheeler and Hugh Everett's Many World Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics, which is a minority interpretation of quantum theory. It was introduced as one of… the several methods which tried to circumvent the Copenhagen Interpretation's goal of maximal theory as opposed to complete theory, and also to resolve the simultaneous collapse of the wave function all over the universe problematic in the orthodox interpretation of Quantum Mechanics. The theory basically holds that whenever a wave-function is supposed to collapse in the Copenhagen interpretation at some uncertain point in a measurement, instead the universe splits into several universes, each of which contains one of the outcomes of the measurement, and which one we happen to land in is demonstrated probabilistically by the mathematics of quantum mechanics. None of the occupants of any of the universes are aware of the splitting, and none can be made aware of the occupants of any other universe. While the theory is still regarded with some interest and does resolve problems of its own, some of its structural inconsistencies and, moreover, the necessity to assume entities of which no experiment can ever measure -other universes, seems to indicate that the theory is unlikely to be extremely successful in the near future. For science relies on experimental proof, and experimental falsification as the other side of the coin- how can we validate a theory whose usage presumes entities which no experiment can ever measure, like some second ether?
A sufficiently backed answer to this question is currently impossible; though the existence of parallel universes is possible. This really depends on what you believe to be re…al.
a parallel universe is where there is a different universe that is completely opposite; so if you make a decision that person in the parallel universe will do the opposite. Ev…en very little things could change what happens in the parallel universe- such as what you wear or what you eat for breakfast.
It is a theoritical possiblility in some realms of physics, like superstring theory, and with some mathematical models. But, honestly, it is also theorically possible to prove… anything with a certain model of mathmatics. This stuff is interesting, but some makes the brain hurt a lot, the more you consider it.
There are 4 main theories about parallel uni/multiverses (yes, that is the correct term). Type 1. There are parallel Earths elsewhere in this universe- there could be an infin…ite number of parallel Earths, or any random number, each one with different outcomes of everything, changing whether you have green hair, or brown hair, or no hair at all. this is all to do with the butterfly effect, which is when one thing changes huge things, like war, or politics. Type 2. In this theory, there is a thing called hyper space, which is what contains multiverses. In hyper space, there is nothing, and that means absolutely nothing at all, but other theories say that hyper space is riddled with dark matter, which is invisible- at least to our eyes. These multiverses are in universal bubbles, which float around in hyper space, and could eventually collide with each other. This means that we might be able to find a way to transport to or at least make contact with these other multiverses. As in the first theory, the different multiverses have different outcomes. Type 3. This is the hardest theory to get your head around. First, each multiverse is flat. O.K? Now, each multiverse is connected by invisible strands of matter to 'membranes' the same size as the multiverses. These 'membranes are pulsating like waves, and keep the multiverses going. These multiverses and membranes look like this: l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I l-I In this diagram, l is a multiverse, - is an invisible strand of matter, and I is a pulsating membrane. And, finally, type 4. There are no parallel uni/multiverses, and we are alone. But this is boring, so ignore it. Hope I helped : )
First you have to prove a parallel universe exists. It is theorised that they exist, but it is not proven. If they do exist, it is doubtful we could ever go there. We are desi…gned for this one, for the physical laws the operate here and if we did go there, we probably wouldn't be able to survive. A parallel universe is for science fiction stories and that's about it.
lines that never end and are straight and have 2 arrows at the end Parallel is 2 lines that can go on forever and never intersect Ex: _________________ _________________
No, not at this time.
There was never a big bang until around 10,000 years after the world began this created parallel universes but the laws of gravity are different because of illusions. every 10…,000 years there will be a bang to create new parallel universes
Parallel Universes are a theory.
Quite possibly. You know, there's a theory based on The Grandfather Paradox that there is a parallel universe for every single thing that could have happened to you, say your …grandfather died before you were born, and your grandmother married someone else. Since there are so many possibilities, there must be a lot of parallel universes
i believe in parallel because well, i believe in String theory and even some of the smartest mind in the world such as Michio Kaku also believe in parallel universe. It is the… most reasonable theory of what happen before the Big Bang. So what happens is that there are multiverse of Universe out there that are parallel to us, when two universe collide together or split into two universe, a Big Bang occurs. So to me, yes i believe in parallel universe. However there are no evidence that parallel universe exist. but in the law of Physics, it does.
You can get into a parallel universe through wormholes which are located in the middle of blackholes. However it would take a space shuttle as BIG AS JUPITER to get near the b…lackhole without splitting into membrains. It would also take negative matter to keep the gate open FOR THAT LONG
If there is such a thing as a parallel universe, and if it's notalready located near and parallel to our universe, and if it's located insome other place, and if our universe …and the parallel one are movingtoward each other, and if there's such a thing as them meeting each other,then nobody has any idea what would happen in that event.
Theoretically, there are infinite parallel universes in the multiverse, however it is not necessarily widely accepted that the multiverse exists.
Currently the concept of a multiverse is a purely speculative hypothesis. There is no way of knowing whether or not there is a multiverse, let alone home many universes it… could contain.
A parallel universe would be another region of our space-time with its own matter-energy configuration and its own physical laws and constants. In the hypothetical multive…rse there could be an infinite number of them existing alongside our universe. This means there could be infinite copies of each one of us living out our lives in infinitely different ways!
