Brian Greene writes, "If true, the idea of a multiverse would be a Copernican revolution realized on a cosmic scale. It would be a rich and astounding upheaval, but one with potentially hazardous consequences. Beyond the inherent difficulty in assessing its validity, when should we allow the multiverse framework to be invoked in lieu of a more traditional scientific explanation? Had this idea surfaced a hundred years ago, might researchers have chalked up various mysteries to how things just happen to be in our corner of the multiverse, and not pressed on to discover all the wondrous science of the last century?"

Hello!

In the above quote, Brian Greene says that the Multiverse could have hazardous consequences.

Is there a mathematical equation for the Multiverse?

How is the Multiverse different from the Anthropic Principle, which is little more than an entertaining tautology?

I know Briane Greene is a famous Mathematician, but I couldn't find the Greene equation. Is there one?

What is his definitive contribution to mathematics taht makes him a great mathematicain? What are the conjectures, postulates, equations, or principles that he has left in his majestic mind's wake?

Thanks!

And finally, what is the danger of the Multiverse?
