    B If the Multiverse is correct why don't they appear inside our own?

    Ok, I agree that further discussion is pointless! But I don't agree with your use of the word 'wrong'. My profession is a teacher and physics is a lifelong interest (but obviously not what I teach!). If one of my learners asks me a question I try to check that I understand what it is they...

    B If the Multiverse is correct why don't they appear inside our own?

    The root of the word 'discuss' is the same as the roots of the words 'percuss' and 'concuss' and means literally hitting each other with words. I prefer 'converse' which means to turn together in dialogue. In a short space of time I have noticed a tendency to attack questions and questioners...

    B If the Multiverse is correct why don't they appear inside our own?

    I understand the concepts that have been proffered but not the mathematics that supports them. I am a philosopher not a physicist or mathematician. So with that cleared up can you please answer the the two questions I posed in response to your request? Q1 Is there any evidence that there is...

    B If the Multiverse is correct why don't they appear inside our own?

    There is nothing that has been mentioned or proposed here that I haven't heard or considered many times before. So in answer to the request for asking a question here we go. Q1 Is there any evidence that there is more than one universe? Q2 Is there any way of testing any hypotheses which...

    B If the Multiverse is correct why don't they appear inside our own?

    For exactly the same reasons as our universe came into existence. I see them as a waste of time and energy and the responses to my initial query have served to confirm this. Every response has been pure conjecture; often contradictory. I believe Sabine Hossenfelder is a highly respected...

    B If the Multiverse is correct why don't they appear inside our own?

    I can indeed although by now I am confused. Firstly PeterDonis tells me that space within our own universe is a complete vacuum (which I did not accept) then I am told that everywhere in our universe if full of the fundamental fields. Then Drakkith suggested that I am talking nonsense shortly...

    B If the Multiverse is correct why don't they appear inside our own?

    The initial condition of our universe must have been absolutely nothing. Pre inflaton field, pre big bang, pre any hypotheses. Any initial condition would be immutable and would therefore still remain - anything subject to change can only do so on a background not subject to change. Inside our...

    B If the Multiverse is correct why don't they appear inside our own?

    So we do not know the conditions of anything pre big bang we only assume that it must have been a state capable of producing a quantum fluctuation capable of inflating into the known universe. If we can only hypothese about this state how can we be certain that it is different from so called...

    What is the nature of space pre big bang and what is the nature of empty space inside our universe?

    How did you find PF?: Google search If the initial conditions for our Universe was empty, timeless space and a quantum fluctuation created the entire Cosmos why have we not seen this repeated endlessly in the empty space within our own Universe?
