Conceptually, right, the arrow of time moves away from the 'big bang' start of the universe. In theory, there is another arrow of time moving in the opposite direction from the same start. Moreover, there are infinite arrows of time expanding out from that starting point in every direction. And each one of them is going "forward" in its own context.

Either that or it's just this one and the one where everyone wears cowboy hats.

As for the copenhagen interpretation - the idea that the waveform collapse when you open the box and see if the cat is dead or not bifurcates the universe into one where the cat is alive and one where the cat is dead - I think physicist who believe this should shut up and produce the math.

Asa Phelps: I think physicist who believe this should shut up and produce the math


The math works IF the waveform is not collapsed.  Hypotheticals about realizing quantum superposition at large scales are only hypotheticals.  It can't currently be done with a grain of salt, AFAIK.

So I'd meet my late wife as an Alzheimer's patient, fall in love with her again, lose her to Alzheimer's as she forgot about me and then be in my high school & college years in my physical pique with all the sexual knowledge I have now for my rebound years? Sounds good.

What a bunch of baloney.  There is nothing weird about neutrinos coming up through the earth.  They barely interact with anything and trillions of them pass through your body every second.  Neutrinos mutate, we know this now.

What I would like to know is where the energy to constantly be creating alternate realities comes from. From the same source that the energy to drive the accelerating expansion of the universe comes from?

Because, energy is apparently being created from nothing. I thought there was a rule against that.

Infinite alternate realities are already here acting in complete and perfect duplication. Half of them peel off every time something quantum happens. Right? I mean that's the logical extension of the multiple world theory.

The rule against creating energy only applies to a closed system. Dark energy appears to be coming from "outside." One of the problems is that we don't have a grasp of what "outside" could mean in this context.

I've been thinking that may be where the antimatter went. Current models suggest that the Big Bang should have created equal amounts of matter and antimatter. But mathematically, antimatter looks like matter traveling backwards in time.
So there should be two universes, propagating away from the Big Bang in both temporal directions. One matter and one antimatter.

Perhaps because humanity always places themselves at the center of any system, we lack the necessary cognitive abilities to imagine a system in which we are insignificant. It is very difficult to break free from concepts of scale to put forth original thought, untethered from our egos.

It's not a matter of scale. Or anthrocentrism. We're constantly peeling back layers of reality and seeing how the underlying processes work. But there are limits. It's not possible to look at a particle without a photon wavelength at the same or smaller scale. And the energy involved for the subatomic scale is destructive to the observed quantity. On the large end we can't see past the CMB because light didn't exist before that. Even so we can use math to model the small scale and the early time. But beyond a certain point even math doesn't provide meaningful results. If you have an infinite universe expanding into itself, what does "outside" mean? What is beyond infinity? These aren't concepts beyond human ego. We understand the question. Enough to know that it doesn't have an answer.
