One of the more intriguing and bizzare theories concerning the world we live in involves the concept of the “multiverse”…the notion that we exist as part of a much larger whole involving many, if not an infinite number of “worlds.” Suketu Bhavsar, Professor of Astrophysics at Cal Poly Pomona, delves into the structure and possibilities of the “multiverse” on both the large, cosmological and very small, subatomic level.
Presented by the University of Kentucky.
Much more than a conference, the IdeaFestival is a catalyst for high-speed innovation, product development, and creative endeavors. This series of events attracts leading thinkers and curious minds from across the nation and around the globe.
Suketu Bhavsar is a professor of astrophysics and Director of the Honors College at Cal Poly Pomona. At the 2010 IF he will discuss the structure and dynamics of the â€œmultiverseâ€. His recent work has integrated eastern and western philosophy, religion, evolutionary psychology and cosmology to pursue the question of how we know what we know and of humanityâ€™s place in the universe.
The Double Universe.
The Universe as whole is Two - Measured World.
‘ Somehow, the energy is extracted from the vacuum and turned
into particles...Don't try it in your basement, but you can do it.’
/ -- University of Chicago cosmologist Rocky Kolb /
' Somehow' from ' Somewhere'
From ' Somewhere' , ' Somehow' to the Visual World.
We have Double Universe.
If you want you can call one Reference Frame as
Schwarzschild radius ( a radius where the escape velocity
would be so high, that not even light could escape – Black Hole)
And another Reference Frame is outside of Schwarzschild radius.
Physicists say the event horizon of a black hole
is boundary between two worlds.

If you want you can call one Reference Frame as ‘Dirac sea’.
And another Reference Frame is outside of ‘Dirac sea’
Although we are used to thinking of empty space as containing
nothing at all, and therefore having zero energy, the quantum
rules say that there is some uncertainty about this. Perhaps each
tiny bit of the vacuum actually contains rather a lot of energy.
If the vacuum contained enough energy, it could convert this
into particles, in line with E-Mc^2.

If you want you can call one Reference Frame as ‘ Kirchhoff black body’
And another Reference Frame is outside of ‘ Kirchhoff black body’.
/ Max Laue called ‘ Kirchhoff black body’ as ‘ Kirchhoff vacuum’ /
Herman Minkowski said about ( -4D ) spacetime continuum:
“ Henceforth, space by itself, and time by itself,
are doomed to fade away into mere shadows,
and only a kind of union of the two will
preserve an independent reality.”
It means that the Universe as whole is Two - Measured World.
One world is Minkowski union of spacetime continuum.
Another world is shadow of it because the time and space
are different conceptions.
Another example of ‘ The Double Universe ‘:
wormhole : Einstein-Rosen Bridge ( EP).
To understand the Existence we must think about the
Double Universe, where one Reference Frame is the Matter World
and another Reference Frame is the Vacuum World.
But today physicists know the Matter world and refuse to think
about the Vacuum world.

This is a common trap: in infinite universe, there are copies of us, but only if our familiar physical environment is present everywhere. This is highly unlikely - there should be a cause or mechanism that would make that happen. Or as philosophers say, if reality is infinite, it (most likely) won't apper as a unity.
