The Power and Relevance of the Multiverse

How many ages hence
Shall this our lofty scene be acted over
In states unborn and accents yet unknown!
(Julius Caesar – III, 1)

Here a brief list on the power, and relevance to our lives of the Multiverse, a model in which the Cosmos is composed of an enormous number of extremely diverse Parallel Universes.

From solid scientific bases, such a Model may be able to:

  • Move Science itself beyond the “Realm of the Whats” and into the “Region of the Whys
  • Explain why our Universe is so very well “tuned” for life, and especially for intelligent life to exist (Goldilocks and all that)
  • Explain why Mathematics is such a powerful tool in our scientific investigations (”The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics in the Natural Sciences” in the words of Nobel Prize winner E. P. Wigner)
  • Explain why against a microscopic world driven by probabilistic quantum mechanics, there is the macroscopic deterministic-like tangible reality of our day-to-day experience
  • Offer an alternative model for Time
  • Neatly expand to our whole Universe the Banality Principle, according to which we live on an anonymous planet orbiting an anonymous star in an anonymous galaxy
  • Explain the entire Cosmos very simply, and using a very limited number of words
  • Answer the age-old question of why would a benevolent God, or gods, or any Creator let bad things happen
  • Provide new insights on Free Will, on the mind-body relationship, and on the reality of our thoughts

By the way: to provide more detail, I will soon “serialize” two previous, rather long pieces:

  1. God’s Many Dices (I) – The Science of Parallel Universes
  2. God’s Many Dices (II) – The Philosophy of Parallel Universes
