Our Multiverse

In 1895, American
philosopher and
psychologist William
James coined the term
³Multiverse´ to describe
the set of all possible
parallel universes
Many Worlds, Many Possible Selves
In the 1950s, American
physicist Hugh Everett
proposed there are infinite
alternative realities
alongside our own universe,
with his mathematically
elegant Many-Worlds
Interpretation of quantum
Though ridiculed and forced to
change his doctoral thesis,
his theory gained support
over the past 50 years.
Imagine Yourself in Many Worlds

Your life can be

viewed as a
series of choices,
in which you
literally branch
off into an
entirely new you
and new universe
with each choice
you make.

contemplated by
imagining a point outside

This is a Oneness, spiritual,

Retrocausality Logical Requirements
In the 1950s, Oxford philosopher
Michael Dummett clarified the
logical requirements by which
reverse causality could transpire,

Meeting Dummett¶s Requirements
If the state of a photon is
influenced by the next
polarizing filter, the only
way to tell if the
polarization in the future
affected the photon in the
past is to put another
polarizer in the path of the
photon, before it reaches
the polarizer in question.

Everything (TOE)
brings the study of the
