Scientists might have finally discovered evidence that parallel universes, similar to the one we’re currently a part of, exist.
According to the theories, it might be possible to have infinite number of parallel universes, which might contain infinite versions of our own selves.
It also suggest that our ‘being’ might not be the same in all the universe. For example, if you’re a popular celebrity in this universe, you might just be the car that you’re driving in this one.
Scientists have also given this a fancy name (if you didn’t know already) called the multiverse, and a new study has discovered something called as “Cold Spot” which might just prove that our universe is nothing but a small portion of infinite realities.
Now, you might be wondering, what the hell is a “Cold Spot”. Well, it was formed when the universe came into being some 13 billion years ago (not too long ago, I know). The spot was discovered by NASA’s WMAP satellite in the year 2004, and its existence was finally confirmed by the ESA’s Planck mission in 2013.
The “Cold Spot” is extremely cold obviously and researchers previous speculated that it was simple because it had few number of galaxies within it than other areas of space.
However, a new study debunks that theory, stating that such a “massive supervoid” is impossible to exist.
This has re-ignited other theories, including the one involving a ‘multiverse’.
“We can’t entirely rule out that the Spot is caused by an unlikely fluctuation explained by the standard model [of particle physics],” said study co-author Professor Tom Shanks, an astrologist at Durham University.
And then comes much more interesting theory:
Perhaps the most exciting of these is that the Cold Spot was caused by a collision between our universe and another bubble universe. If further, more detailed, analysis … proves this to be the case then the Cold Spot might be taken as the first evidence for the multiverse.
How cool would that be, us living in a version of the universe, and others living in another version of the same universe?
