B If quantum particles can move to other universes, can macroscopic things move?

  1. Jul 5, 2017 #1
    I was just wondering if macroscopic things like a book or even a human can travel to another universe, like quantum particles.

    What makes you think that ANYTHING can "move to another universe"

    Quantum particles can't. Where are you getting this from?

    The way you're putting it sounds like its suggested that energy/mass disappears from "our universe", breaking energy conservation. The many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, which you've probably gotten this idea from, doesn't allow anything like this, as doesn't any other serious physical theory. There are probably many threads here that clarify the many-worlds interpretation of QM, use the search feature to find some.

    A very problematic question to answer, since we don't know if there are other universes. (the quantum aspect has already been answered by others above)
