I used to say that I’m busy, that I always had to get back home before 10, that I can’t stay over because my parents wouldn’t allow me to, that we should even hide our love because they just simply won’t approve us together. You know what? Fuck that. I should’ve been braver, should’ve stood up for myself and just didn’t follow such stupid rules. Now I’m free. Free to express myself, to set my own goals and rules, to make my own decisions. Free to build my own life the way I want to, not the way somebody else wants me to. Now I have time, I’m free to pull all-nighters, to sleep over, to go and have some fun. But there’s one problem. I don’t have you anymore, and I’ll probably regret for the rest of my life not doing all that way before.

Welcome back,

From science fiction to science fact, there is a concept that suggests that there could be other universes besides our own, where all the choices you made in this life played out in alternate realities. The concept is known as a “parallel universe,” and is a facet of the astronomical theory of the multiverse.
Our universe might be really, really big — but finite. Or it might be infinitely big.


Both cases, says physicist Brian Greene, are possibilities, but if the latter is true, so is another posit: There are only so many ways matter can arrange itself within that infinite universe. Eventually, matter has to repeat itself and arrange itself in similar ways. So if the universe is infinitely large, it is also home to infinite parallel universes.


Does that sound confusing? Try this:

Think of the universe like a deck of cards.

“Now, if you shuffle that deck, there’s just so many orderings that can happen,” Greene says. “If you shuffle that deck enough times, the orders will have to repeat. Similarly, with an infinite universe and only a finite number of complexions of matter, the way in which matter arranges itself has to repeat." 

Greene, the author of The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos, tackles the existence of multiple universes in his latest book, The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos.


As vast as our Universe might be, the part that we can see, access, affect, or be affected by is finite and quantifiable. Including photons and neutrinos, it contains some 1090 particles, clumped and clustered together into approximately two trillion galaxies, with perhaps another two-to-three trillion galaxies that will reveal themselves to us as the Universe continues to expand.
