Prof. Howard Wiseman, a physicist at Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia, along with several collaborators has published a different theory on the many-worlds interpretation. The new one is titled many interacting worlds (MIW). In it parallel worlds (universes) exist, but that they interact with our world on the quantum level and are thus detectable.
Though still speculative, Wiseman and his colleagues believe that this new theory (or interpretation) may help to finally explain some of the bizarre consequences inherent in quantum mechanics: wave-particle duality, quantum entanglement, quantum tunnelling, etc. Key aspect of MIW are:
- The universe we experience is just one of a gigantic number of worlds [universes] with some are almost identical to ours but most very different
- All of these worlds [universes] are equally real, exist continuously through time, and possess precisely defined properties
- All quantum phenomena arise from a universal force of repulsion between “nearby” (i.e. similar) worlds, which tends to make them more dissimilar.
In chapter 11 of Frontiers of Knowledge, I introduce and discuss the many-worlds interpretation of quantum physics and present information from several spiritual sources (the channeled entity Seth and several of Diane Cannon’s good hypnosis subjects). Interesting, both of my spiritual sources describe parallel universes that interact — the many interacting worlds perspective.
