I love it when real science finds a home in a fictional setting, where you take some real core idea of science and weave it through a fictional narrative in order to bring it to life, the way stories can.
And it was a great thing. I had a white board, and I was writing out the equations, and explaining to them all these ideas, and they were really getting it. And at the end of the day, of course, Hollywood is really dedicated to making the films that will attract the most people into the theater, get the most people into the seats, and I fully understand that.
And there, the real physics of general relativity dictates how the story unfolds. Is that a realistic treatment, in that the ship would be able to survive getting close enough to the black hole for the relativistic effects to take effect? One of my favorite tropes in fantasy and science fiction is the idea of parallel worlds, but in science fiction and fantasy settings, typically what happens is somebody from the real world travels to a parallel world.
So assuming that the multiverse is actually real, would it ever be possible to travel to a parallel world? So, you may know I have a recent book called The Hidden Reality, where I go through nine different variations on the theme of parallel universes.
So what I mean by that is, let me just give one example.
Now, the question arose, and is still with us, of when you do a measurement, when you find one and only one outcome, what happened to the other potential outcomes?
I listened to a lecture where you talked about how if you were to fly deep enough into outer space, you might in effect end up in a parallel universe? So another version of parallel universes comes from far more simple considerations than quantum physics. And the version of parallel universes that comes out of that is pretty straightforward to grasp.
So we only really have access to a chunk of space, if it goes on infinitely far, the chunk that could have sent out a light signal that would reach us by the time we look up today. And that means that if space goes on infinitely far out there, there have to be duplicates of us, and the argument is quite straightforward.
Let me just give an analogy. Imagine I have a deck of cards, and started to shuffle the deck. Well, the cards will come out in different orders. You shuffle again, the cards will come out in a different order still, but since there are only finitely many cards in the deck, there are only finitely many distinct orders of those cards. Now, by the same reasoning, since matter could only arrange itself into finitely many different configurations in a given region of space. So if the particle arrangements here repeat someplace way out there, it means that you and I, the sun, the earth, they would be out there too.
And now to your question.
Would the matter for all of those infinite worlds have come from our Big Bang, or are we talking about multiple Big Bangs—an infinite number of Big Bangs creating those worlds? But if space goes on infinitely far—this alternative possibility—then ever further back in time, objects in space were ever closer together, but space itself would still extend infinitely far.
So if the universe goes on infinitely far, then even way back at time zero itself, space would go on infinitely far. So the Big Bang would better be thought of, in some sense, as an infinite number of Big Bangs, all happening throughout this infinite spatial expense.
So going back to the Everett multiverse idea, how different could the laws of physics be in those parallel worlds? Are we talking about a different Periodic Table of Elements? Different fundamental constants? Top Pick. It manages to be both challenging and entertaining: As a popularizer of exquisitely abstract science, he is both a skilled and kindly explicator' the New York Times'Greene is as elegant as ever, cutting through the fog of complexity with insight and clarity; space and time become putty in his hands' Los Angeles Times Book Review.
