- Why not a duplicate, mirror-image anti-matter universe?
After countless google searches, I decided to ask the experts. The multiverse idea seems to be popular among physicists, but the idea of a mirror universe seems much more plausible. Like quantum theory, it’s symmetrical. For every quantum fluctuation in our universe, there would be an equal and “opposite” fluctuation in a mirror universe, down to the last neutrino. Imagine a two-sided quantum field. Virtual particles always appear in pairs, why wouldn’t real particle also be paired? Wouldn’t the left-handed weak force still function in both universes, but in mirror-image form? Is there any known physics that would prohibit such a state? Assuming that the particles in the mirror universe aren’t the bearded, evil twins of our own (the Roddenberry hypothesis).
