The True Science of Parallel Universes

   A group of physicists are gathering evidence that we exist in parallel universes (and are part of a multiverse); not a new concept but interesting that the concept has not "died" but continues to be studied.  
    The theory of parallel universes actually started after the discovery of quantum mechanics.
  This concept was actually devised in 1954 by a young Princeton University doctoral candidate named Hugh Everett III. His idea was that parallel universes exist, exactly like our ­universe. Each of these universes are related to ours. In fact, they branch off from ours, and our universe is branched off of others.
   Everett proposed that within these parallel universes, the wars that we had on our Earth had different outcomes. Species that are extinct in our universe have evolved and adapted in others. In other universes, we humans may have become extinct.
   In the 1960s, DC Comics caught onto that idea and put it into comic book lore. In the 1940s there was a character named "The Flash" who wore a helmet like Mercury, the Roman God of speed. In the 1960s a redesigned Flash was created on a "different Earth" and eventually the two Flashes of parallel universes (and Earths) met - as seen in this famous cover of the Flash comic book. So, open your mind and take a look at this video put together by "Minute Physics" about parallel worlds. You may come away with a new understanding. Oh, and pick up a copy of Flash comics. :)

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
