Parallel Universes & Quantum Science

A remarkable discovery has emerged in astrophysics: key properties of the universe have just the right values to make life possible. Most scientists prefer to explain away this uniqueness, insisting that a number of unseen universes must therefore exist, each randomly different. Astrophysicist Bernard Haisch joined George Knapp in the first half of the show to propose the alternative—that the special properties of our universe reflect an underlying intelligent consciousness.

In the second half of the program, veteran journalist Chris Taylor talked about how the Star Wars franchise has conquered our culture with a sense of lightness and exuberance, while remaining serious enough to influence politics, and spread a spirituality that appeals to religious groups and atheists alike.

Parallel Universes & Quantum Science

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - January 20, 2007
Host: Art Bell
Guests: Charles Seife

Author and associate Professor at NYU, Charles Seife discussed parallel universes, black holes, and quantum mechanics and how the concepts of information are in and of themselves, physically shaping the Universe. Information, such that is contained in every particle in the cosmos, can never be destroyed-- except, perhaps if it entered a black hole-- where it could become "inaccessible," he said. Further, living organisms can be thought of as vehicles for passing information.

The universe, Seife continued, can viewed as an "information processor" and in terms of its lifespan is about half-done or at a "cosmic midpoint." Parallel universes, he suggested, could exist simultaneously like sheets of cellophane stuck together, interacting with each other and allowing for a multitude of possible outcomes.
