Just to be clear, when you say Multiverse, do you mean "loads of different universes, with different properties" or do you mean the QM version, that is multiple timelines of the same universe.

Good question. Explain to me in a nutshell the prevailing theories on the concept of multiverses.

  • Are they realistically plausible?

  • Could we hypothetically exist in multiple dimensions?

  • How does a mathematician connect the hypothetical to reality?

    Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. –RC Sproul

    Is curiosity the primary motivation?

    The basic problem with Quantum Mechanics is that it doesn't really seem to be "about" anything.

    One question which I have regarding the motivation to study and research this stuff is what motivates you to do it? (Thank God that you do, because we wouldn't be where we are as a species without folks such as you!)
