Big Bang gives way to the Multiverse

I find it both fascinating and inspiring to observe the evolution of science in my lifetime. Rather than a world religiously bound to dogma, to live in a culture that prizes free inquiry, where truth is pursued regardless of where it may lead, is a wonderful privilege.

We are witnessing the slow-but-sure demise of the Big Bang as the ultimate origin of everything, and the birth of the theory of the Multiverse. We are simply following the math, and even though we may never observe another universe that exists in the same space but different dimension relative to the one which we inhabit, we will be able to prove or disprove its existence by experiment.

"The idea of multiple universes is more than a fantastic invention—it appears naturally within several scientific theories, and deserves to be taken seriously."

Aurelien Barrau, a French particle physicist at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).
