The Multiverse theory, introduced in the 1980s, can explain the “luckily small” amount of dark energy in our Universe that enabled it to host life, among many universes that could not.
Using huge computer simulations of the cosmos, research has found that adding dark energy, up to a few hundred times the amount observed in our Universe, would actually have a modest impact upon star and planet formation.
This opens up the prospect that life could be possible throughout a wider range of other universes, if they exist, the researchers said. (1)
We define death as the norm.
And we are surprised by the existence of life.
Only because we see life as something precious.
In a world born out of chaos, we love order.
In a cosmos born out of darkness, we love light.
But our essence is neither light nor darkness.
Our essence lies in our ability to perceive them and admire them.
Close your eyes. Imagine yourself.
You are not alive.
You are not dead.
You simply are.
You don’t need a universe to exist.
The universe needs you.
And yes, universes are common in… humans.
