It’s the stuff of science fiction — parallel worlds that fan out in time and space.
But do such parallel worlds exist?
It turns out that at least some physics theories do allow for the existence of parallel universes — at least on the quantum level.
In several interpretations of quantum mechanics, like the Many-Worlds interpretation and the Pilot Wave theory, the universe can be described by a single giant equation, known as a quantum wavefunction. Any time a quantum (or subatomic) process occurs anywhere in the universe, this wavefunction splits in two, meaning parallel universes are constantly created.
