The Hidden Reality By: Brian Greene
Greene explains that more accessible versions of the multiverse arise from investigations into general relativity and quantum mechanics. Puzzling over gravity, the wave function of electrons, and values of physical constants, physicists have devised daughter universes budding off our own or hovering nearby in higher dimensions postulated by string theory. Greene's exceptional clarity shows what evidence would hint at such parallel universes emerging from well-established theory and presents mind-benders suggesting that all universes are holograms projected from the surfaces of black holes.
Brian Greene does a good job of reinforcing the original idea purposed by Einstein in 1919 predictions about planetary motion. Thought the book he touches on wether or not the universe is infinite and if there are multiple parallel universes in existence. “General relativity then establishes that objects move toward regions where time elapses more slowly; in a sense, all objects “want” to age as slowly as possible. From an Einsteinium perspective, that explains why an object falls when you let go of it.” The quotes brings up how things change over the passage of time and there will continue to be consistences that exist between these parallel universes. Overall the book was very informative and gave an in depth understanding of the idea of a multiverse.
