The theory of the parallel universe has gained so much attention from several writers and filmmakers over the years as it is an important concept of reality. An idea that there is a universe or other multiverse that does not or seldom collide with our universe needs factful clarity. It still remains hypothetical or fictional to us as we can’t fathom the concept or the reality of such a subject.
Be ready to read facts in this article that would help you explore the reality of the parallel universe and even experience it. Yes, I mean it!
What is a Parallel Universe?
Hypothetical self-contained reality? Let us keep that highlight in mind as we read further.
I need to clarify some ideas.
What the Parallel Universe is not
- It is not a description of other Realms (as portrayed in some religions). It is not a concept that points to what some describe as hell or heaven. The reality of the parallel universe is not about a physical world or a spiritual world.
- A parallel universe is not fantasy.
- It is not a dimension.
- It is not an alternate universe.
The parallel universe is truly hypothetical in writing (as it seems incomprehensive) for the following reasons:
Our cosmos is apparently boundless and we don’t even know one-tenth of what it is made up of.
In a simple word, the universe is simply all of space and time and its contents. This includes planets, stars, galaxies, and all other forms of matter and energy.
While the spatial size of the entire universe is still unknown, it is quite possible to measure the observable universe. The volume of space (Hubble volume) that light could get to, visible to our eyes, represents our observable universe.
This is as far as we could see and measure. We don’t see other universes because our cosmic vision is limited by the speed of light — the ultimate speed limit.
Regions of space are expanding because of the continuing inflationary phase in these universes. Space between us and the other universes is literally expanding faster. They are, therefore, completely unreachable.
All of these factors imply that even if the universe did have an edge, we would never be able to reach it. For instance, if you were magically teleported to the so-called “edge” of the universe (if one existed, it would indicate that the universe is finite). You would see other universes.
The cosmos is technically divided into two parts. The observable universe (the part we can observe), stretches over 90 billion light-years in diameter. Then there is the unobservable part of the universe. The portion that exists beyond the light horizon. This is the region in which the light from distant galaxies hasn’t had the proper time to reach us yet.
The Reality of a Parallel Universe
‘Parallel’ is totally a correct term to describe the different universes which are physically some distance away from each other (in a hypothetical sense) as they don’t collide with each other.
It is conceivable to say, if the universe is formed from a source, then the source is outside the universe. There is a possibility that the same source, would form other universes.
We are at the moment limited or have limited means to reach the edge of the universe. No technology exists that can possibly convey any physical being (or any form of matter) out of our universe.
It would take trillions of light-years to reach the edge of the universe as it is continuously expanding. There is, however, a possible interaction between our universe and other universes. It is remarkably possible that entities from other universes have the capacity to interact with our universe.
What the Parallel Universe looks like
Our solar system is a clear picture of what the parallel universe might look like. We are on a planet that revolves around the Sun in an orbit. It rotates within its axis alongside other planets which form the system.
The community of planets in our solar system, their properties, and their pattern of movement suggest in a real sense how the parallel universes co-exist.
Possible Ways Entities from other Universes Communicate with Us
We are experiencing a visit from other universes without having any slight idea of it. Entities from other universes interact and interfere with our system in ways beyond our imagination. The more you try to understand this, the more complex it becomes.
