Less than if we were some super-stupid alien race's idea of an experiment.
Kind of. Certainly our universe must exist in a larger context along with other universes (or the equivalent). Whether they have policies and protocols like ours is an open question, although I doubt it. As for the multiverse idea that we live alternate lives, that's a trickier question. That's based on quantum uncertainty principles, like the double-slit experiment, and quantum waves and so forth. But quantum uncertainty tends to average out at the macro level and quantum wave functions have a tendency to collapse when observed, so I lean toward the model where those pivot points collapse into one real universe. On the other hand, if the universe does exist in a larger context, then it would be governed by the higher laws of that context, and so it may be subject to quantum effects in its entirety. In which case, maybe yes.Do you believe in the multiverse idea?
Nobody really knows anything about Dark Energy. However, I wrote the book on Dark Fatigue.I hadn't heard about dark energy. I just looked it up and apparently it's even more mysterious than dark matter.
If there are other universes, what do you think your other selves might be doing right now?
