Join the Debunker Boys every Saturday night. Are Guest Tonight is Nate Evans we will explore the Paranormal A multiverse was first seriously considered when the inflation theory was developed in 1980 by physicist Alan Guth. The idea goes as such: just because the part of the universe we see has settled down, that doesn’t mean the same energy responsible for the inflation couldn’t go on to cause inflation in other regions. Basically, more Big Bangs could continue to bubble up all around us with their own tweaked versions of physical laws.
The recent findings from the BICEP2 telescope point to a very intense early inflation, which supports the Big Bang theory and a smooth universe pretty well. However, it also makes a multiverse as described above much more likely. The inflation energy (whatever it was) cooled and eventually became the energy and matter we are now familiar with. However, the inflation suggested by the BICEP2 finding is such that there’s no reason to think that the inflation energy finished its work in the observable universe. It could have easily caused more Big Bangs, which themselves led to more inflation until there are (maybe) an infinite number of universes.
