Great going, Bill. I've been preparing myself to go after this very difference -- regarding my "traveler" yet again! -- and you beat me to it, briefly!There is an inconsistency between QM and Relativity. Relativity does not allow something to be in two places at once like QM does. Also QM allows "spooky action at a distance", Relativity does not.
I've always taken the Universe to mean knowable Universe. It's okay by me if others wish to suppose other universes as long as we recognize only one can be determined.I sometimes forget to capitalize names. "Universe" is correct. It is the only thing represented by the capital version. There is only one Universe by definition. "universe" can mean whatever someone wants it to. It has no precise definition in cosmology.
Well firstly, I strongly believe we are not alone in our own Universe, I believe there are other beings out there in the cosmos trying as hard as us to find other living species.This is a fascinating question to consider. If there are other universes, they would likely have different laws of physics than our own. This could mean that beings in these universes would be completely different from us, both physically and mentally. They might have different senses, different ways of thinking, and even different emotions.
It is also possible that these beings are not aware of our existence. They may be living their own lives in their own universe, completely oblivious to our world. Or, they may be aware of us, but they may have chosen not to interact with us.
We may never know for sure if there are other universes, or if they are inhabited by beings like us. But the possibility is certainly intriguing. It forces us to confront the limits of our own understanding of the universe. It also raises the question of whether or not we are truly alone in the cosmos.
What do you think? Is it possible that there are other universes inhabited by beings like us?
However, there is no scientific consensus on whether our universe is infinite or not. Some physicists believe that our universe is finite, while others believe that it is infinite.
Is it possible that there are beings like us in different universes that coexist in the same space, but they do not interact with each other?
Quite an interesting "input/logic judgement", I actually like it... got me thinkingSorry, folks. My input (logical judgment) is that this question is just a semantic dalliance with conjecture. First, remember that infinite/infinity has no relation to reality - it is a mathematical abstraction - simply a term to express our ignorance. Simply meaning something bigger/smaller than we can understand. Do not mistake it for a number, or anything real.
No scientist worth the name would consider the term as anything but inadequate ability to quantify.
There is, by definition, only one Universe. There are billions of observable universes - because each entity (person/thing) has a totality of what he/she/it can observe limited by the speed of light. This includes beings with different senses.
Yet another example of semantic misunderstanding (IMHO)
The reason to believe there are other horizon (h) universes (u) out there is because of a physic known as "discrete quanta." Also, another physics from Chaos Theory known as "fractal zoom universes" or more simply as "fractality." It is the local-relative "finite" and it will always be engaged . . . locally, relatively speaking that is.It's really difficult to believe that there are other universes, escpecially since we have not entirely observed and explored our own universe. So until we know how vast is our universe, then I dont belive there are other universes out there.
From where we stand I believe our universe is infinite, and there are no other universes...
Cat, I've observed in my reading of the writings of several physicists that nothing really exists until it is observed by some observer, thus being information and thus informatively wordy.The words are not the reality.
