    Who's heard of this? I just watched a show about it on the Science channel, it's frickin crazy! Basically it says that we live in an 11 dimension world, and there are an infinite number of universes coexisting with ours in what is esentially a multiverse. It says that there are big bangs happening all the time, all around us, when universes collide.

    It blows one's mind...:crazy:

    Sometimes knowledge and science is the genesis for a lot of hard thinking that may be better spent watching the clouds

    I'll look it up Evan

    That would be an interesting conversation, talking to yourself or a slightly different version.

    Read Michael Chrichtons book "Timeline". Not the movie- it sucked. But the book was awesome...kinda touches on the multiple universe theory. It's a thought provoker.

    Ask this guy:


    [​IMG]

    The smartest guy on the planet these days.

    I bet he could prove or dis-prove the theory fairly quickly.

    Kind of like Quantem mechanics...a universe inside a drop of water. Read prof Stephen Hawkins a Brief history of time. It's incredible...and very believable. It'll blow your mind!

    Hawking was the dude behind string theory, which worked in 10 dimensions. The problem was that there ended up being like 5 different string theorys and nobody could figure out why. They added an 11th dimension and all the theorys lined up and made sense under the unifying 11th dimension.

    never watch a crichton book made into a film they all suck bad bad bad.

    jerasic park was the onlu ok one.
    the only other good ones are the ones he worked on.
    13th warrior (eaters of the dead) some what crappy because they wouldent let him do what he wanted.

    the andromida strain, 70's but good.

    and the great train robbery witch i cant find, has sean connery in it too.

    can any one find it for me?
