    The thing is how will we experience anthr universe?? It will be the same as we experience this world .... bc we all hv a personal view of everything we experience. So if there are three moons and five suns and things go backwards etc. it will all mean diff things to each experiencer. The labels such as "anther dimension or the fifth fourth dimension etc. are moot as there is no way the experience of anything will be the same for all. It's all crap and mostly horseshit!

      The end speech of the spliting of the universe theory absolutely makes zero sense because every single imaginable particle and electron in a smalles plank imaginable scale and the smallest possible variance would split the universe ad infinitum that would multiply infinitely. Its irational. It's really a desperate theory to dodge the wave function collapse and the hard problem of consciousness.

        My biggest take away from this video was Max's assertion that, if we believe a theory, we should also take seriously the predictions of that theory, no matter how bizarre those predictions are. I've never seen this expressed so clearly. Thank you, Max. (e.g. 'black holes' and General Relativity.)

        Now, for the many world’s interpretation, which some physicists argue comes out of quantum mechanics (as in Sean Carroll's 'Something Completely Hidden'), if that is true then logically personal responsibility and accountability is meaningless. I did murder my wife in this universe but didn't in another. It's even worse than that. In most universes neither myself nor my wife even existed. In yet more universes humans never existed.

        Physicists say that quantum mechanics is the most successful theory ever. More accurate than any other theory. If the theory predicts or suggests 'many worlds' shouldn't we at least take it seriously as Max is saying?

        I've always thought that the many worlds view was crazy until I read Sean Carroll's book.

        Rationally, my only explanation for thinking that this is a crazy idea is that I am a human who evolved from an ape and have no experience or knowledge.

        In the grand scheme of things I imagine that the Human consciousness (from our point of view) is between the level of an amoeba and an ant when it comes to understanding the reality of the universe.

            My q is, what's the typical things that govt computer cant do, What is their questions? Im sure govt creating those quantum comp isnt for those simplify things but rather to exploit the other universe materials or resources.. Eg.. Time machine maybe..

                    Ive seen it. I saw myself and daughter through a portal and could hear them. It was an exact replica/ duplicate but at a different moment in time. This was in the future as I was so advanced and was trying to help myself in my world. I didn t go through as I was freaked out and couldn t believe what I was seeing..It was only open for a short time.. about 1 minute and that was the problem.. the portal could not be kept open indefinitely. The parallel world is in the same space.. but at a different moment in time.. We go into parallel worlds continuously but only realize it when the time difference, whether into the future or into the past is of a great difference that we realize it as a huge event.

                      In a 3rd parallel universe, I’m guessing physical changes can be present to. A universe where I have blue eyes instead of hazel. If we take this idea, and increase it, among an infinite number of parallel universes, then we will infact reach a universe where I am nothing like me, and that includes personality. I no longer am me, but someone else, and that someone else should have their own parallel universes, that they, in the end of all possibilities, are nothing like the original. It could be thought that we could infact, become any, and everyone that lived or has lived in Earth.

                        Maybe a parallel universe learned a different history because they were told the truth about their history.

                          teeory of relativity is over a hundred years old ... do we still think this is valid information ... i dont really think so...the universe is much more complicated than we think...

                            So your theory's of black hole, billions of light years, parallel universes ??? It's something to take it seriously !!!!???? But let say the " theory " of creation and us being created by Devine intervention or power is unacceptable to you scientists the inventors of endless number of theory's??? You are all lost in your endless universe.

                                        Can someone objectively explain why calculating something in 5 minutes with quantum computers that would take an unreasonable amount of time in a regular computer would imply parallel universes exist?

                                                Brian Greene's string theory about a membrain. I had a membrain for in a vial of liquid I made and came visible a three particle atom. But the membrain needs room to grow. I think only get so big though as gravity effects it I think.

                                                  U touched base of Albert Einstein equation of relativity. What if E=MC2 resembled in equation E for velocity equals M for minutes times C for centric to the 2nd dimension and as I looked at few notes I broke it down a little more. I'm not sure if I remember though.

                                                      I remain convinced that the times I used lithium/anhydrous ammonia based methamphetamine my body instantaneously switched with another "Me" from a parallel universe. 20yrs later I'm not quite certain that I'm back in my original universe and that uncertainty is a punishment I'll have to live with as a consequence of prior actions. My suggestion is to never use the "Shake n Bake" method for an accelerated extraction. Red phosphorous & P2P are much preferred extraction methods although have become harder to find in the last 10-15yrs. Also, be wary of purchases from the Dark Web! A sample of MDPV tested as another compound instead of methylene-dioxy pyroveralone. Remember - it's always best to learn a lesson from others making bad choices.

Those who wanted to multiverses to exist hypothesized the conditions for their existence. They said there should be so called "dark flow."  and then they failed to observe it. then they started to try to force prove its existence. Just like religious bigoted zealots. something other than scientific facts is passing these days for science as it seems.
