Quantum Physics. What about two worlds instead of "many worlds"? True vs False. 0 vs 1. Light vs Darkness. Conscious vs Subconcious.
This is something that came up today while talking about Yin and Yang and alternate realities. Decision-making is usually binary (yes, I will; no, I will not), but what about picking things? My quantum physics is rusty, what does many options imply? Electron clouds come to mind. As entropy increases, does it distribute evenly? Which system? What the hell is a string?
Honestly. I am fairly new to the subject as well but have done research through mostly (noob friendly) videos.. There is a widely accepted theory spawning from the two slits experiment that their are "many worlds" and the reason you have abnormal behavior in this experiment is because of interaction between those worlds. I have not heard anyone discuss the idea of only "two" and am wondering if that is all it would take to observe this phenomenon.
Widely promoted maybe in the sense that it can open an academia career for you and a lot of funding goes with it (as it is primarily attached to the strings/brans theories) but I'm not sure it's widely accepted. No one knows the fundamental workings of QM. It just works, any many are just happy to stop there. Multi/many interpretations are just that, interpretations. And those will probably remain unverifiable. And the lack of new experimental data also is a problem...
My QM knowledge is much too basic, so here is a good 4 min video which is a good starting point regarding the multi/many worlds theories. The Strings theory is the most studied and receives the most funding but doesn't seem to work and takes away talents from other avenue of research. Garrett Lisi, Eric Weinstein and Steven Wolfram or even Lee Smolin are examples of scientists going out of mainstream physics to try develop different theories. bit.ly/2ONWoB7
