Are they a figment of the imagination or just unknown physical structures? Baby Pictures of the Universe Chapter Two: Kashlinsky et al. The scriptures and philosophies seek to unveil the illusion to learn the ultimate truth. Mohamad Saad. Colored ellipses show the direction of bulk motion for the clusters of the corresponding color.
At the highest level of the hierarchy is the trinity. Werner Heisenberg. In both cases. But scientists hope that these universes might drop some clues to help us identify them. Modern scientific theories of creation and the world of particle physics help us develop a picture of our cosmos. Ganesha sits there displaying a deep sense of tranquility close to a computer in all his majesty and mystery in an American office setting.
One of my fellow faculty members has a Ganesha deity on his table. This is explicable given the Greek connection to early astronomy and the European inheritance of the ancient knowledge gained by Greeks. Another reason is the association Hindu Gods have with deeper philosophical nuance and its linkage to science.
They enlightened their followers with words and deeds and explained material success and failure to the devotees. From Niles Bohr to Robert Oppenheimer. For example. What a strange beauty!!! Of course. Since the mystical connotations have been of interest to many physicists. I am become Death. Sanskrit and Indian philosophy always had a broad appeal to philosophers and scientists. But often the names simply deceive.
Many of them engaged in activities that we are used to. Is it simply the curiosity that drives such affinity?
We all know that planets are named after Greek or Roman Gods. But that made me wonder why Hindu Gods and Goddesses are getting so much attention in Western culture.
Another of my colleagues. It is the distance that light can travel in one year. Physicist Mersini-Houghton proposed a model of entangled universes. Light moves at a velocity of about One of them has been found by WMAP data. Even if everyone agrees these features are caused by shadow universes.
While analyzing the cosmic microwave background CMB radiation data. The recently launched Planck satellite by the European Space Agency. I learned that my colleague who is expecting soon will name her daughter Maya. The metaphor of the cosmic dance thus unifies ancient mythology. Some physicists interpret this as the unmistakable imprint of another universe beyond the edge of our own. None of the current cosmological theories can explain such huge voids in the data.
So in one year. There is little reason to resent this. More precisely. They might not be interested in any illusion. The void in the infant universe represents the absence of any material.
We cannot foresee how future generations will perceive the world. Then the great Maya will dissolve in Brahman. Kashlinsky et al. Some other models suggest that universes are finite in number and restricted by mathematical formulations. Images of representative galaxy clusters in each distance slice are also shown Image credit: Some cosmologists.
The effect of multiverse. For one. Whether Vedic cosmology. These are collections of stories. Colored ellipses show the direction of bulk motion for the clusters of the corresponding color.
According to them. Some physicists have shown deep interest in philosophical aspects of Upanishads. The colored dots are clusters within one of four distance ranges. This is contrary to our common sense view that reality has an existence independent of the observer. We understand the universe as an exchange of matter and energy.
The scriptures and philosophies seek to unveil the illusion to learn the ultimate truth. The universe and all the objects in it are the manifestation of a fundamental reality. Maya8 is the natural illusion that the material world is the only reality. It is a skewed perception.
The material world is the manifestation of Brahman. Erwin Schrodinger. The multiverse theory is the inevitable result of quantum mechanics. The absence of objective reality implies that the material world could be an illusion — or. Quantum physics. In Hinduism. The nature of the ultimate reality is intertwined with our actions. In the realm of the smallest particles. But many physicists disagree on the grounds that not all mathematical structures are well defined.
This hypothesis. This is the most basic principle behind the existence of many universes. Brahman is the fundamental divine cause of everything in and beyond the universe. When an observation is made. For instance. The nature of Brahman is explained as personal and impersonal. Cosmic Parallels? We now know that this expansion is accelerating. The heavens narrate their stories in a distinct manner and allow humans to discern the mystery of creation and evolution.
Whether it is gamma rays. We live in a universe that is beaming with billions of galaxies that are continuously expanding. Such a non-dualistic approach is advocated by many modern researchers who argue that the effect of observation either changes reality or creates new realities. This essentially is the Advaita9 philosophy.
Our observation impacts the observed reality. Up to now. In modern times. Science can demonstrate its processes. Science employs its own methods and procedures toward that goal. Human eyes operate using the visible light of the electromagnetic spectrum.
But many researchers now believe that we must rethink this assumption. It is ironic that we need many universes for the existence of our own universe! The scientific approach always assumes that fundamental reality is different from us.
Operating from ground and space. This doctrine identifies the self atman with the ultimate reality Brahman and negates any real distinction between the individual and the entire universe. Even with telescopes. Our universe and its subjects are creatures of spirit coated with matter that conceals the spirit from the light. The Mirror on the Universe. It granted us an exotic vision to enjoy the wonders that lie in the tempestuous cosmic ocean. A variety of telescopes. The naked eye had been the only means to investigate the elements of the cosmos.
For the ancients. There are many descriptions for the Hubble telescope. When we peep at a star or any other object a few million light years away. Figure 2. During the last two decades of operation. Telescopes are often referred to as time machines. This is because light is a messenger that can convey the untold chronicles of the cosmos. He narrated the accounts of his observation in The Starry Messenger published in Now Twenty-Two Years Old 27 the decoding of light.
While we celebrate the discovery. Hubble has been in continuous action for the last two decades. This could lead future generations to assume that their galaxy is the same as the universe. We believe what we see. What we see today might be the drama of the cosmos unfolded long ago. Scientists were perplexed at the mere existence of such a large number of galaxies. The finite speed of light will not overcome the unlimited space that would be created among the galaxies due to the accelerating nature of their retreat.
Edwin Hubble observed and measured the departure of galaxies using a technique known as the redshift in physics. Each of them might contain billions of stars and many possible planetary systems.
The latest and last Hubble repair mission was conducted in May The instruments on the telescope can observe the edges of the universe in visible light. Since its launch in If our current notion of the universe is true. The website devoted to HST http: Now we know that the galaxies not only depart from each other. Hubble has done more than any other modern telescope to garner that energy and to paint a picture of the history of the universe for coming generations.
In addition to many startling discoveries. If preserved. This particular image contains an estimated Called the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. Galaxies everywhere. This view of nearly As the astronomer Carl Sagan once noted. It is usual for massive stars to end their life at younger ages compared to less dense stars. The redshift is the wavelength or frequency shift of light as it travels.
We perceive the declining frequency or lower pitch of sound as it travels. In nature. Since this event occurred A supernova explosion more details about supernova will be discussed in Chap. GRB is the aftermath of the explosion from one of the early stars in the universe.
It also means that if light does not reach us. Can we trust what we see? Four hundred years after Galileo peeped into the heavens using the first telescope.
There are no magic machines in the foreseeable future to lead us further. This GRB. The Eagle Nebula shows huge columns of gas and dust. Millions of years later. During this process. A nebula serves as the feeding grounds for the next generation of stars.
This is similar to the changes in the frequency of an ambulance siren as it passes by. The elements heavier than hydrogen were created in the interiors of stars and then expelled into space.
Please remember that the final illustration is not the actual color. Analysis of light from cosmic events. Light is a messenger that carries the details of its journey in its wavelength spectrum. In essence. The Eagle Nebula.
Our Solar System was once a part of a nebula created from the death of a star caused by a supernova explosion. Astronomers use redshift as a tool for determining distances in the universe. Nebulae teach us that death and birth are cyclic in the universe rather than absolute transformations. When mid-sized stars. Scientists believe our Sun is a third-generation star. The gravitational forces churn the cosmic material to prepare for celestial births. If the supernova explosion leads to neutron stars and black holes.
The pillars are truly an impression of the past. Even our most sophisticated telescopes are unable to spot a star at those distances. The stellar nursery. It is not hard to imagine that a few billion years ago. The stellar explosions more powerful than supernovas are known as hypernovae. Given the billions of galaxies spanning the universe. The pictures show that new stars are born in this stellar nursery. In a galaxy such as our own.
The picture is a combination of different images taken through different filters. Gamma ray bursts are so intense despite happening halfway across the universe. In this thrilling journey into the mysteries of our cosmos, bestselling author Michio Kaku takes us on a dizzying ride to explore black holes and time machines, multidimensional space and, most tantalizing of all, the possibility that parallel universes may lay alongside our own.
Kaku skillfully guides us through the latest innovations in string theory and its latest iteration, M-theory, which posits that our universe may be just one in an endless multiverse, a singular bubble floating in a sea of infinite bubble universes. Is our universe dying? Could there be other universes?
In his first book of physics since Hyperspace , Michio Kaku begins by describing the extraordinary advances that have transformed cosmology over the last century, and particularly over the last decade, forcing scientists around the world to rethink our understanding of the birth of the universe, and its ultimate fate. In Dr.
As astronomers wade through the avalanche of data from the WMAP satellite, a new cosmological picture is emerging. In this theory, our universe may be but one in a multiverse, floating like a bubble in an infinite sea of bubble universes, with new universes being created all the time. A parallel universe may well hover a mere millimeter from our own. The very idea of parallel universes and the string theory that can explain their existence was once viewed with suspicion by scientists, seen as the province of mystics, charlatans, and cranks.
The implications of M-theory are fascinating and endless. With deft use of analogy and humor, Kaku patiently introduces the reader to variations on this theme of parallel universes, coming from quantum mechanics, cosmology, and most recently, M-theory. Read this book for a wonderful tour, with an expert guide, of a cosmos whose comprehension forces us to stretch to the very limits of imagination.
Fascinating and sometimes downright boggling. In Parallel Worlds , Michio Kaku, another genius, updates us on the this science and speculates about the future of the universe.
Michio Kaku shows that the surface familiarity of the physical world conceals a wonderland of weird entities—dark matter and energy, hidden dimensions of space, and tiny loops of vibrating string that hold the cosmos together. In the universe according to Kaku, reality is as mind-bending as the most exhilarating science fiction. But the real story here is how Kaku invokes these powerful tools to speculate about multiple universes and their philosophical implications for our perceptions of God and the meaning of life.
