The discussion on reality
(Aside: Part II follows from what I proposed in Part I. Part II was developed after being asked to elaborate on specific details mentioned in Part I. Part III will likely follow upon further investigations into explorations of reality using my own sentience as a tool.)
I define my idea of a parallel multiverse as a parallel collection of all possible universes. Of course, the first thing that came to my mind was, “Well, would that not just be a larger multiverse?” I then considered the possibility that while a single multiverse has within it all universes that include every possible outcome provided a specific framework, a multiverse parallel to that is one that has within it those universes but with an altered framework. Of course, we do not yet know for certain even between individual universes to what degree physical laws, the flow of time, the separation of dimensions and/or universes themselves, and so on may be conserved. Nevertheless, though the specifics are unknown, it is easy to envision a hypothetical multiverse parallel to the one we locally exist in where everything is essentially identical except for some variation such as a difference in the speed of light (c). In this model, all possible outcomes in one multiverse are conserved in the other but are manifest under the altered framework. Nevertheless, this is all just speculation.
Regarding my use of the word “Merge,” I admit this may have been a bit of poetic license. However, this idea originates from other possibilities I’ve considered. I do not visualize reality persisting as completely separate universes. I hypothesize that reality as perceived by the observer is actually an equilibrium between several universes that hold within them all possibilities that may actually manifest provided how the observer in a given moment may act.
Multiple dimensions are known to exist within pockets folded in on one another within a single universe. Perhaps, these dimensions allow the flow of information between the possible universes. Each observer has around them their own set of higher level (above 3D and 4D) pocket dimensions that permit the flow of information between universes. This leads to what I called the “equilibrium” of possible universes that brings forth what the observer, we, humanity, perceive as reality. Thus, while an observer may come to its end in a single universe, the sentience/consciousness/actions of that observer are shifted or merged into the adjacent universes that were in equilibrium with the dying universe. Such a model does seem to be in tune with how electrons have been found to “move” between atoms and molecules in spacetime/reality.
“How so, you insane molecular biologist-cum-wannabe theoretical physicist?!” Well…
Electrons are absolutely incredible and remarkably non-intuitive. They have been thought to potentially travel through time, although this is controversial. But, they are absolutely capable of “tunneling” through seemingly solid barriers simply because their so-called wavefunction permits them to occupy that space, in spite of the barrier. They seemingly pop in and out of existence. Thus, if they were actually just flowing through multiple universes in higher level dimensions, this may actually explain a lot about how they might be doing some of these, as Einstein put it, “Spooky” things.
…I know you are just dying to get to Part III. Worry not, friend. As long as I live, I will always be willing to throw out new propositions for the science of the philosophy of reality. I can’t wait.
