How is string theory related to MWI?

Are other worlds in the MWI existing in adjacent branes?

If one could bend the rules as currently defined, and one wanted to journey to another world under the MWI idea, how would you accomplish it? Is this ever discussed? Would it require fabulous amounts of power? Creation of a worm hole?

One final question, what are the odds of manipulating the nature of matter by manipulating the complement of the strings or rates of their vibration within the particles contained in matter?

On a scale from 1 to 100 (1 being completely retarded and 100 being completely genius) what rating would you give someone who told you they were pursuing a way of changing matter by flooding it with high frequency sound waves?

Sorry in advance if these questions are lame. I have the unfortunate condition of being immensely curious at the same being totally uninformed. Working on that second bit though.

No. All the worlds exist in the same space.

You cannot. If you could then MWI would make a different prediction than other interpretations - but it doesn't.

The odds are 100% that this is just a science fiction collection of buzzwords.

No. Branes live in a 9 or 10 dimensional space (not counting time as a dimension). MWI worlds live in an infinite dimensional Hilbert space.

Is this something you are contemplating, Calvin, or something someone else has claimed? Certainly, sound waves can damage us - 19 Hz is the resonant frequency of the human eyeball and very loud noise at around 5 Hz can make your breathing erratic and shake your bones. At the gruesome end of things, apparently your head would explode at 240 dB, which may not be changing matter, but it definitely does matter to the person who's head it is.

But if you're expecting to turn lead into gold, or some such fancy where objects change their constitution with ultrasound, then you are out of luck. It's a #1 on your scale.
