Alternate univeres right next to each other?

In summary, Brane theory is a tribe of the string theory family, and according to it, collisions between universes are not universally held as a theory. It is possible that there is no good theory within Brane Theory to explain why other universes are not colliding into our own other than that it is on another Brane which is not on a collision course.

Before i start writing this forum if your reading this and u notice that i said something incorrectley please tell me so. According to string theory strings can strech out into branes which make up universes. String theory also says that the big bang got its energy from when two branes banged into each other. But if we have other universes right next to us in another dimension, what stops them from banging into us or surrounding universes all the time?

you mean that there is no atmosphere to slow the branes before they collide?

thing is, we can't say that this isn't happening every day, or second, have you ever seen the creation of a universe?

In short: Brane theory is only one tribe in the string theory family. Brane collision is not a universally held theory. Also, both string and brane theory are primarily theoretical constructs that "could" explain things. I don't believe that there is a good theory within Brane Theory to explain why other universes are not colliding into our own other than that it is on another Brane which is not on a collision course.

well if there is an atmosphere or somthing to stop 2 branes from colliding they obviousley found someway to break through that froce or there would have been no energy for the creation of the universe, and what I am getting at is that if this could have happened once, what's to stopping it from happening again, why hasnt it happened again, if it did there would have been a new big bang and who knows what would have happened to us.
 

1. What is an alternate universe?

An alternate universe, also known as a parallel universe or alternate reality, is a hypothetical version of reality that exists alongside our own. It is believed to have its own set of physical laws and may differ from our universe in various ways.

2. How do alternate universes exist right next to each other?

The idea of alternate universes existing next to each other is based on the concept of the multiverse, which suggests that there are multiple universes beyond our own. These universes may have originated from the same event, such as the Big Bang, but have evolved differently and exist in separate dimensions or planes of existence.

3. Is it possible to travel between alternate universes?

There is currently no scientific evidence to support the possibility of physically traveling between alternate universes. However, some theories suggest that it may be possible through concepts such as wormholes or quantum entanglement. As of now, it remains a topic of speculation and exploration in science fiction.

4. What implications do alternate universes have on our own reality?

The existence of alternate universes raises questions about the nature of reality and our place in the universe. It also challenges our understanding of time and space and the concept of causality. Some scientists believe that studying alternate universes can help us better understand our own universe and potentially lead to new discoveries and technologies.

5. Are there any potential dangers associated with alternate universes?

As with any scientific concept, there are potential dangers in studying and exploring alternate universes. Some theories suggest that the interaction between different universes could have catastrophic consequences, while others argue that the existence of alternate universes poses no threat to our own reality. Further research and understanding is needed to fully explore the potential risks and benefits of alternate universes.
