I really don't like how the multiverse theory has just become a meme for fedora tipping plebs
What are some good arguments that dismiss the muliverse? It's almost like becoming the next flat earth/hollow earth expansion pack for next wave of bandwagoning trolls
>"Hurr durr theres a universe in where i exist in???"
Scientists are now fedora tipping plebs. Thanks /sci/
If you believe in Schrödinger's Cat, then there's multiple universes existing simultaneously for all quantum events. You can say that when we observe anything, the other universes don't exist, or maybe they do.
Or you can say that there were other big bangs in higher dimensions. The big bang was possibly just a quantum fluctuation.
The only thing worse than fedora tipping plebs is failed philosophers like OP who make these awful threads.
No, there is no evidence for multiverse. None whatsoever. Most people can't even define what 'atom' means. There are things much smaller than atoms and I'm sure some are yet to be properly defined.
People are simply unqualified to reach a conclusion without first understanding our own physical laws i.e Space, time and the forces within. If you did, you would realize you don't need other universes.
Is the multiverse theory really a scientific theory?
As far as i undersand, it is just a visual way to explain the collaps of wave function, like you would explain emotions as little people inside our head that take turn in piloting us
Multiverse theory rests on an axiom. The assumption that it is possible for a universe to unfold in more than one way.
Failing this assumption, all action is predetermined, and there is only one universe. Spacetime, the entirety of time and space in 4th-dimensional view, is the only thing in existence. There are no other possible configurations of spacetime.
Alternatively, granted our assumption, we are faced with an infinity on every level of the the unfolding of the universe, from very start to very end.
I'm not sure which which option is more crazy.
What bugs me about the traditional view of one universe is that the parameters for our physical laws are just right for life to exist.
Within a multiverse every single "universe" can have different parameters so there is no need for the "miracle" that life exists.
Good point, it is far easier to believe that life was inevitable within the grand scheme of infinity than to believe that it was somehow always predetermined within the single possible universe.
I feel like there's a paradox to be explored here though.
>there's multiple universes existing simultaneously for all quantum events
That's one "interpretation" of QM.
It's not science, and it's not supported by observed facts.
It's really just a desperate attempt to reconcile actual scientific knowledge (QM) with your emotional need to believe that "God does not play dice with the universe".
There are two basic types of multiverse: Open and closed. In a closed multiverse, each individual universe is isolated from all other universes and is functionally equivalent to a reality with only one universe. In an open/navigable multiverse, you can get from one universe to the next by *complicated navigation concept*. In a navigable multiverse, you can find travelers at literally any point in the entire multiverse. Since time is, by definition, not shared between universes, a multiversal traveler will show up with a probability of nearly 1 for any moment in time that an observer records.
TL;DR: We either don't live in a multiverse or else we'd see multiversal travelers like clockwork, every second of every day.
no, QM exists to describe a lot of stuff. It sees how things spontaneously appear. It sees the double split experiment.
It then makes the assumptions that these things happen for no reason. It completely misses the point of predeterminism and the space-time/force manifold.
/sci/ once again proving it is nothing but fedora tippers except for this guy and me
Many-worlds is an interpretation of reality, due to quantum. The multiverse is a conjecture of how/from what did the Big Bang occur, due to cosmology. They are not the same. Keep your terms straight when discussing your reddit Kaku memes, you fucking fedoras.
