Higher Dimensions, Parallel Universes And The E...
The multiverse is a hypothetical group of multiple universes.[a] Together, these universes are presumed to comprise everything that exists: the entirety of space, time, matter, energy, information, and the physical laws and constants that describe them. The different universes within the multiverse are called "parallel universes", "other universes", "alternate universes", or "many worlds". One common assumption is that the multiverse is a "patchwork quilt of separate universes all bound by the same laws of physics."

Multiple universes have been hypothesized in cosmology, physics, astronomy, religion, philosophy, transpersonal psychology, music, and all kinds of literature, particularly in science fiction, comic books and fantasy. In these contexts, parallel universes are also called "alternate universes", "quantum universes", "interpenetrating dimensions", "parallel universes", "parallel dimensions", "parallel worlds", "parallel realities", "quantum realities", "alternate realities", "alternate timelines", "alternate dimensions" and "dimensional planes".
Around 2010, scientists such as Stephen M. Feeney analyzed Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) data and claimed to find evidence suggesting that this universe collided with other (parallel) universes in the distant past. However, a more thorough analysis of data from the WMAP and from the Planck satellite, which has a resolution three times higher than WMAP, did not reveal any statistically significant evidence of such a bubble universe collision. In addition, there was no evidence of any gravitational pull of other universes on ours.
Many physicists who talk about the multiverse, especially advocates of the string landscape, do not care much about parallel universes per se. For them, objections to the multiverse as a concept are unimportant. Their theories live or die based on internal consistency and, one hopes, eventual laboratory testing.
[A]n entire ensemble is often much simpler than one of its members. This principle can be stated more formally using the notion of algorithmic information content. The algorithmic information content in a number is, roughly speaking, the length of the shortest computer program that will produce that number as output. For example, consider the set of all integers. Which is simpler, the whole set or just one number? Naively, you might think that a single number is simpler, but the entire set can be generated by quite a trivial computer program, whereas a single number can be hugely long. Therefore, the whole set is actually simpler... (Similarly), the higher-level multiverses are simpler. Going from our universe to the Level I multiverse eliminates the need to specify initial conditions, upgrading to Level II eliminates the need to specify physical constants, and the Level IV multiverse eliminates the need to specify anything at all... A common feature of all four multiverse levels is that the simplest and arguably most elegant theory involves parallel universes by default. To deny the existence of those universes, one needs to complicate the theory by adding experimentally unsupported processes and ad hoc postulates: finite space, wave function collapse and ontological asymmetry. Our judgment therefore comes down to which we find more wasteful and inelegant: many worlds or many words. Perhaps we will gradually get used to the weird ways of our cosmos and find its strangeness to be part of its charm.
A further wrinkle on this theory suggests these brane universes aren't always parallel and out of reach. Sometimes, they might slam into each other, causing repeated Big Bangs that reset the universes over and over again. [The Universe: Big Bang to Now in 10 Easy Steps ]
The Transformers multiverse is vast, but just how vast is not entirely clear. As a subset of the endless Omniverse, the multiverse encompasses an extremely large number of potential realities: according to Vector Prime, this number lies somewhere in the millions, the Transcendent Technomorphs of Axiom Nexus claim to have discovered at least 15,962,782 different universes, the Autobots of one universe analyzed 75,890,007 realities while searching for their Optimus Prime, Bug Bite once put the number at a whopping fifteen quadrillion, and other stories have described the multiverse as infinite. Regardless of how many potential realities might exist, there exist a finite number of beings with the technological sophistication and drive to explore and chart them, and as a result groups of Transformers and Transformer-analogues across the dimensions have come up with different ways to chart and classify these parallel realities.
Conventional Cybertronian science held that parallel universes, such as those created through time travel, did not exist.

The higher-dimensional geography of the multiverse is loosely organized around the small Nexus universal cluster; as a result, dimensional travellers have a higher-than ordinary chance of ending up in the city of Axiom Nexus in universe Nexus 208.0 Epsilon. Ask Vector Prime, 05/14/2015 At first, the native Transcendent Technomorphs assumed these travelers to be mere extraplanetary travelers and gave them passage off-planet. However, the natives of Cybertron soon realized that these travelers were in fact from another Cybertron(s). With the existence of a multiverse of other Cybertrons confirmed, the TransTechs realized the pettiness of their internal disputes and began focusing on other universes. The TransTechs became the watchers of the multiverse, welcoming travelers from the various universes in the city of Axiom Nexus and sifting transwarp for beings who would otherwise die in mundane accidents involving transwarp-based transportation. Spearheaded by the efforts of Rhinox, Prowl, and Silverbolt, they compiled an extensive, continually expanding catalog of the universal streams, both existent and no longer existent.

One very prominent mind twister in both science fiction and real-life science is the concept of parallel universes. This is hardly surprising, since the idea of multiple copies of yourself existing at the same time is both existentially disturbing and thrilling.
The multiverse is a theory in which our universe is not the only one, but states that many universes exist parallel to each other. These distinct universes within the multiverse theory are called parallel universes. A variety of different theories lend themselves to a multiverse viewpoint.
The idea of Level 1 parallel universes basically says that space is so big that the rules of probability imply that surely, somewhere else out there, are other planets exactly like Earth. In fact, an infinite universe would have infinitely many planets, and on some of them, the events that play out would be virtually identical to those on our own Earth.
The term megaverse is used, particularly in science fiction, to refer to a humongous universe that contains many multiverses within it. This grandiose-sounding word is often used to refer collectively to all of the parallel universes and multiverses that exist within a given fictional reality or possibly even within our own.
It is an interesting question as to whether parallel universe type solutions of the classical general relativity equations can exist. A model is presented whereby higher dimensional metrics can be utilized to embed universes of arbitrary dimensions. The goal is to see how the local and the nonlocal aspects of the classical solutions fit together to give us our universe, where causal constraints prevent us from being manifestly affected by the other universe sectors. It is hoped that these solutions will give insight into our three-dimensional existence and might be valuable to interpretations of quantum mechanics such as that of the Many-Worlds Interpretation.
String theory has 7 extra dimension that has really no good explanation. It is assumed that they are compactified to such a small size that their influence cannot be measured. What if the six extra spatial dimensions are associated to two parallell universes/branes with open dimensions just as the physical universe? Dark matter could belong to one brane and dark energy to the other. We would have dark matter and dark energy all around us. I think this is a configuration worth exploring. The last dimension (the 11th dimension of string theory) called coupling strength, could be speed of time which equals scope of view, which introduces consciousness to the bulk/cosmos. I am surprised that string scientists are not interested in looking further into these alternatives. I cannot see any hindrance of including consciousness to the cosmos so far, but it might be considered a high professional risk for a physicist to really accept this as a area for research.

The normal way of definer higher dimensional universes is that each universe has more than three dimensions. My proposal, that matches observations and string theory, is that three universes with only three dimensions each form a complete cosmos. Big Bang was a splitting of particles (because of the expansion/cooling of the cosmos) from pure energy into three parallell universes that have different dimensions, altogether 9 such as required in string theory. These three universes make up the physical universe and the mind. In one universe we observe the thoughts, dreams, emotions etc. In the third universe which contains entities with simultaneous different values like quantum waves, we find the personality and the Self. Consciousness is connected to all three universes and is based on negative energy (has negative entropy). This give a balanced cosmos that can exist forever. Dark matter and dark energy are situated in these two different universes/branes that make up the mind, and influence physical matter such as measured.
