Have you ever contemplated the idea of other universes existing in a different dimension--kind of like a parallel universe? Well, according to Howard Wiseman, of Griffith University in Australia, parallel universes actually exist. He has come up with a theory that suggests that multiple other universes exist in the same space and time as our own, and they all interact on a quantum level, as reported by IFL Science.

Howard and his team propose not only that parallel universes exist, but that they interact, which means they influence one another by a subtle force of repulsion. According to their research, this explains everything that doesn’t have an explanation about quantum mechanics.

This means that there are many worlds just like ours, where different things happen. 'In some universes the dinosaur-killing asteroid missed Earth,' explains Wiseman, 'and in others, Australia was colonised by the Portuguese.'

‘The beauty of our approach is that if there is just one world, our theory reduces to Newtonian mechanics while if there is a gigantic number of worlds it reproduces quantum mechanics,’ Wiseman explained. ‘In between it predicts something new that is neither Newton’s theory nor quantum theory.’
