Many Universes

August 27, 2020 - September 2, 2020

Is the universe we live in unique? What lies beyond the boundaries of the universe we see? Was the process that gave birth to our universe – the Big Bang –a singular event or are universes bubbling up all the time? Do we exist in different worlds and live parallel lives?

Such notions would have seemed outrageous a few decades ago: surprisingly, as evidence begins to converge from different directions, they are close to becoming scientific orthodoxy.

The Nobel laureate Murray Gell-Mann described a key motive in the evolution of scientific thought as “jettisoning excess baggage”. Ideas that were previously accepted as absolute truth (e.g. the idea that the Earth sits at the center of the cosmos) were later seen to be relative and simply a consequence of our particular perspective. Are we today on the edge of another such radical enlargement of our perspective by abandoning the notion of a single universe?

In this Pari Dialogue we will explore the idea of multiple universes (and multiple selves) in science, literature, film, science fiction, etc.

Spread the love
