Science Fiction and Fact  		    Stick your finger in your ear... Did you do it? If the so-called Many Worlds Interpretation of quantum mechanics is correct, there's at least one universe in which you did, one in which you didn't, and universes for everything in between. Physicist Hugh Everett III was just 27 years old when he introduced this interpretation—also known as the theory of parallel worlds—in the published version of his 1957 doctoral thesis.

The Many World Interpretation, or the Copenhagen Interpretation?  This is a raging theoretical debate that has often left the smartest minds reeling in pain from the cognitive dissonance done to the world through quantum physics. The underlying premise is actually quite simple. The many worlds interpretation is entirely based on the mathematics of Edwin Schrodinger, but with mind-bending implications. Conversely, the Copenhagen Interpretation is based on the superposition o

Nobody knows what happens inside quantum experiments. So why are some so keen to believe in parallel universes?

Since the Alcubierre drive manipulates spacetime, it is the closest theoretical space travel engine to interdimensional travel. Because modern science on Earth does not have a real concept of multiple dimensions beyond quantum mechanics and the many worlds interpretation, bending or changing spacetime itself to achieve faster-than-light travel appears to be the real-world equivalent of jumping through dimensional doorways in fiction.[citation…
