    Is there any empirical evidence in support of the existance of parallel universes?

    I don't see any "empirical evidence supporting parallel universes" in that paper.

    Cristo, I didn't see any "empirical evidence supporting parallel universes" either. (And I want the half hour of my life back!)

    Rygkau, I don't know quite what you are talking about, but I can assure you that evidence for gravitons would not be evidence for parallel universes.

    I'm glad you enjoyed! This is one of my favorites.

    Where did the "Cosmic Sea" come from? Did that just blow outta no where to? hahaha! I don't believe that humans can ever understand the universe, or "Cosmic Sea" or what ever is beyond that, because our minds cannot grasp infinite. You cannot proof something with endless answers if you mind cannot conceive "infinite", can you?

    Really? How do you explain the branch of mathematics that deal with such "infinite"? Are you doubting what we can do with, for example, Residue theorem and Cauchy integral?

    Well, I am not to sure. I am still learning myself, haha : )
    Of course [tex]\infty[/tex] reps. infinite, but if people think there is an infinite universe, then how can there be only 1 equation for everything? It seems to me the numbers and symbols would never end. If you watched the videos, it said there are infinite outcomes for everything, but I cannot understand how this can be even mathematically possible because there are never ending "stuff" out there. We can only work in 4 dimensions, yet we try to work in 12D and what our brains cannot possibly grab...

    ok... im lost.. >_<

    Brain fart......

    I can't explain such complex things, because I don't feel I have the right knowledge, and my brain cannot conceive the large pictures in my head right now. I get so confused. -_-
    PLEASE Quote! :cry:

    Take the Peano axiom system for the arithmentic. It is simple and quite short
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peano_axioms

    However, it describes an infinite number of numbers and infinite number of properties of numbers, with infinite number of 'outcomes', which can not be predicted by mathematishians at all, giving them infinite time to work on that theory

    Then do you think it was wise of you to make such outlandish statement in the first place?

    This forum is full of professionals in many areas. One will look rather foolish very quickly if one is making guesses based on ignorance. It is one thing to ask about something one doesn't understand, it is another to make definitive statements when one knows very little about the subject matter.

    Just because something is "infinite" doesn't mean that we don't know how to deal with it. Mathematically, being infinite is irrelevant because we have "tools" to deal with them. Anyone who has studied complex calculus can tell you that, or you can open such a text yourself to see this. And many of the electronics you use have "infinities" in them as part of the theoretical description. Try looking at the phonon density of states of your ordinary conductor.

    Well first, I am not a professional and when I signed up for this forum it did not say professionals only. Second, I don't care if I look foolish, I don't care what people think, because I came here to learn about physics, not debate; That would be why I said "Please Quote". I'm only 16 and I'm far from being Einstein. Thank for the "Phonon Density". I will look at that. :wink:

    You need to read what I wrote carefully. I didn't say you HAD to be a "professional". I was criticizing your ability to make such outlandish claim when you admitted that you don't know enough. Our PF Guidelines specifically prohibit against that. It doesn't prevent you from ASKING about something you don't understand. That is a major function of this forum. It does, however, strongly discourage you from making speculative judgment on something you don't now. My advice here is to get this right in the beginning before YOU get into trouble.

    OK, this is ridiculous. Can we please end this? I goofed XD
    I was just stating what I know or think I know. :redface:
