Posted By: alsetalokinThat's just what we need, a Chinese Multiverse.
What is it that would make such other universes distinct from ours? Only the fact that we only perceive the operation of certain rules?
Posted By: loremanWhat gets me is what has always got me-why is it that people think of the multiverse as consisting of separate "universes" with some sort of "membrane" between them? What is at the boundary between universes if there is a "multiverse" (that old liminality problem once again). And if a universe is somehow defined by its "rules" (its mathematics?) then is it the case that all universes share some of the maths but the universes other than ours have some "different" maths? And if there are some shared "maths" (think eg a two dimensional universe, "our" universe and one with more dimensions than ours) are the universes contiguous or rather somehow coexistent in the same basic "space" except wsith other dimensions filled with extra/different "rules"? What is it that would make such other universes distinct from ours? Only the fact that we only perceive the operation of certain rules?Jean Luc, please stop being so linear! (Q to Cpt. Picard)
Posted By: YAFFPThe idea of multi-verse is simply bad logic.
The universe is everything and so it is not a part of a greater whole.
The idea of an infinite number of universes is science fiction promoted it seems by people that want to have a neat ending for a bad theory.

That's a test for zero (!)

Perhaps you mean " divide something by it and see if you get nothing."
Posted By: TrimThere's an infinity of numbers. There's an infinity of even numbers. There's an infinity of odd numbers. There's an infinity of prime numbers. Etc,etc, etc. In combinations (n-1 = n) that is if you have three letters say A B C then the number of combinations of two letters out of three is three AB, AC, BC in the case of n=3 then the numbers of combinations of n-1 two in this case is n three so if you had the alphabet the n number = 26 so the combinations of 25 separate letters would = n 26. Therefore it follows that the second largest number infinity minus one would have an infinite number of combinations in infinity. n-1 = n. Infinity is even bigger than 42.
