Crisis on Infinite Earths?

'Multiverses? Pain? Utter Annihilation? Fascinating.'

War of the Universes

from Sploid

Scientists cracking the mysteries of parallel universes have come up with a frightening new theory that has shaken the foundations of quantum mechanics.

"Our universe may one day be obliterated or assimilated by a larger universe, according to a controversial new analysis," New Scientist reported Thursday.

"The work suggests the parallel universes proposed by some quantum theorists may not actually be parallel but could interact - and with disastrous consequences."

A staple of science fiction that has come ever closer to verifiable fact in the last decade, the parelell universe theory says there may be infinite variations of our own universe overlapping one another.

But rather than obliviously existing side by side, new research says these multiverses should also be smashing into each other, obliterating entire realities or forcing them into conflicting realms.

"It could be there's a moment of pain before the end," Robin Hanson of George Mason University says. "But you could be comforted by the fact that versions of you will go on, even if you don't."
