The concept of multiple universes, also known as multiverse, dates back to as far as 1954 when a young doctoral candidate from Princeton University by the name of Hugh Everette III suggested that parallel universes exist. This theory suggests that there are other universes that have branched off each other, and likewise, ours has branched from another universe. In these other universes, the outcomes of things are much different from what we have experienced. Wars have ended differently, animals that are extinct here are not elsewhere, and in some universes, we are extinct. Multiverses have been studied by numerous philosophers and scientists as well as in cosmology, physics, astronomy, and religion. This concept is very popular in science fictions and fantasy books.

Philosophers have become concerned with the “bifurcation points”, which means that the decisions that we make in our current universe are made by beings of consciousness and when we make a choice, the reality splits and becomes separate, but we continue in the other universe with the opposing decision of the one that was made. The variation of this is when we begin to create our own reality. When we have hopes and dreams that do not manifest immediately, we tend to give up on them and start a new dream. Philosophers are beginning to believe that when we give up on our dreams here, the “us”, in the multiverse continue on with that dream until it comes true. The only thing that they have yet to determine is what happens when we do not give up. Do we create a large void in our other life or do we continue as usual and receive twice the success?

While some people conclude that the possibility of multiple universes is just a theory, NASA has retrieved data from their WMAP satellite that they believe, offers proof. This satellite has gathered information about space to help scientists learn more about our own galaxy. However, what they discovered was a void in the Constellation of Eridanus that is roughly 10,000 times the size of our galaxy, but without stars, dust, nebulae or any other materials that we would find here. Scientists have come to the conclusion that this large void is the proof that they have needed to confirm that there may be another universe parallel with ours. More research needs to be done to truly confirm or deny the existence of another world, but quantum physicists at the California University have successfully completed tests that lead them to believe time travel is possible. They believe that they have uncovered a multi-state condition that enhances the probability that an object in front of you may exist simultaneously in a parallel universe.

Whether you believe the theory or not, it is interesting to believe that the decisions we make in our reality, may not just affect us here, but may span across a galaxy and affect an alternate version of ourselves. That if we are unable to manifest our wants and desires in this world, we may be doing so in another, without even realizing it.
