Are we part of a multiverse?
The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know. - Albert Einstein
The more we learn about the world, and the deeper our learning, the more conscious, specific, and articulate will be our knowledge of what we do not know; our knowledge of our ignorance. For this indeed, is the main source of our ignorance - the fact that our knowledge can be only finite, while our ignorance must necessarily be infinite.
One of the most controversial but widely discussed concepts among scientists is the idea that the thing we call “the universe” is just one of an infinite number of regions in a much larger universe of universes, or multiverse.
Could parallel universes exist? If so, what would they look like and how would they form?
Our universe may not be alone. It could just be one of multiple realms making up a “multiverse.”
In fact, there are a half-dozen or so lines of reasoning that lead to this conclusion, with some pointing to the even wilder possibility that we live in a kind of multiverse-within-a-multiverse-within-a-multiverse.
Lying just beneath everyday reality is a breathtaking world where much of what we perceive about the universe is wrong. In the documentary below physicist Brian Green takes you on a journey that bends the rules of human experience.
He probes the most extreme realms of the cosmos from black holes to the big bang to the very heart of matter itself. This is definitely one of the most eye opening documentaries you will ever see so I highly recommend you take the time out to watch. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
