 Multiverse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Multiverses have been hypothesized in physics, philosophy, and fiction, particularly in science fiction.
Leonard Susskind claims however that some form of multiverse is unavoidable, given the current state of physics, and that observer effects are inevitable and have to be taken into account in other sciences.
The concept of the multiverse figures prominently in many science fiction and fantasy novels.

Above Top Secret 4.0 » Science & Technology » Universe or Multiverse ?
Actually a universe and multiverse can't be the same do to the fact there is only one universe in a universe, hence the prefix uni- which means 1, and a multiverse which is multiple universes, hence the prefix multi- meaning more than 1.

 Multiverse by Reed Carson -BlavatskyNet
To put this is some perspective, imagine how much beyond the thinking of her time this idea of a multiverse was, when she wrote about it in 1888.
An important implication is that there wasn't a beginning; that there were increasingly larger big bangs, so that the [multiverse] goes on forever -- one doesn't have to grapple with the question of it before the bang.
In this infinite ocean, called the multiverse, the vacuum is constantly spawning new universes.

Few issues in contemporary science so effectively get at the deep themes of science-and-religion the way the multiverse does.
• Confirm or deny: Science and faith in the murky multiverse
Whether or not you put stock in the possibility of the multiverse, or universes separate from our own, one fact rings true: You’ve got to believe.

 Brian Greene’s Vibrant “Multiverse
This paves the way to a vibrant 11-dimensional “multiverse” pulsating with everchanging textures, where space and time themselves may dissolve into more subtle, fundamental entities.
Michael Turner, assistant director Mathematical and Physical Sciences, National Science Foundation, Greene focuses on cutting-edge developments in super-string and M-theory that may reconcile the behavior of everything from the smallest particle to the largest black hole.
Greene, professor of physics at Columbia University, is the author of Fabric of the Cosmos (Vintage Books), which is available for signing after the program.

 Telic Thoughts » “Laws of Nature” = “Laws of God”
Multiverses do not qualify as “Laws of Nature.” They are designed as a means of denying that there are “Laws of Nature.” I agree with Cartwright that “Laws of Nature” are pretty much the same thing as “Laws of God” in that we know nothing about the whys and wherefores of such things.
However, multiverse theories show no sign of going away, after almost 50 years, so it does seem like there must be something to them, even though a lot of the people researching them don’t seem to like them either.

 Science fiction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There are fan sites devoted to Frank Herbert's Dune, Michael Moorcock's Multiverse, etc. and to television shows such as Star Trek and its derivatives.
Science fiction is a form of speculative fiction principally dealing with the impact of imagined science and technology upon society and persons as individuals.
A science fiction writer is generally not trying to write a history of the future that they believe will happen, any more than a writer of westerns is trying to create a historically accurate depiction of the old West.

One type of science fiction, which developed into a large subgenre, is the alternative history tale, wherein change is imagined at a crucial point in history, causing events to turn out differently, resulting in a different world.

Science fiction is a genre of fiction in which advances in science, or contact with more scientifically advanced civilizations, create situations different from those of the both the present day and the known past.

The agency has been struggling to retain its authority in the power structure headed by John D. Negroponte, the new director of national intelligence, especially as the Pentagon has pressed for a greater role in intelligence operations.

 Amazon.com: Hyperspace : A Scientific Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, and the 10th Dimens ion: Books: Michio Kaku
Since ingesting Einstein's relativity theory 50 years ago, physics fell down a quantum rabbit hole and, ever since, physicists' reports to the world of popular science have been curiouser and curiouser.
People who don't absolutely love books like "Hyperspace" back slowly away from me when I start talking about the multiverse.
:) Just being able to grasp the general beauty of hyperspace science is still well worth the time.

 Elric Movie?: Science-Fiction & Fantasy forums
According to Moorcock's website (http://www.multiverse.org/index.php) he's sold the rights to the Elric saga and a movie is in the development mode.
Reading the QandA section of his forums is fun as the members all want to be part of the film, even if it is just proposing actors and the like.

 Brainstorms: Karl D. Stephan: Tegmark’s Parallel Universes: A Challenge to Intelligent Design?
Max's thesis thus comes down to the idea that various S2 analogues can be formulated in S1, an idea already implicit in the fact that S1 distributes over S2 as a more general component of TOE (SCSPL) syntax, and his terminology simply replaces S1 with "the (level 4) multiverse".
But a theory which seems to 'implicitly' include all this and more but explicitly seems to fail to propose such scientific hypotheses may in the end be of little interest to science.
Saying that “a theory which seems to 'implicitly' include all this and more but explicitly seems to fail to propose such scientific hypotheses may in the end be of little interest to science” is a bit shaky, since one can say precisely the same of the logic and mathematics on which science critically depends.

 Alternate history
The science fiction television show Sliders presented alternate histories under the science-inspired guise of quantum-navigating the multiverse.
Even mainstream science fiction stories are known to have points of divergence - the Star Trek franchise, for example, diverts from ours in that several key space disasters never occurred, resulting in a much faster and smoother development of rocketry than in our timeline.
There are a number of in-jokes, where famous works of fantasy and science fiction appear, under slightly different titles: The Wind in the Cloisters and The Lord of the Chalices for example.

 Michael Moorcock
For the science fiction buff, there is The Sundered Worlds, described by some as a metaphysical space opera, in which Moorcock first introduced the concept of the "multiverse"
In his Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, John Clute describes Jerry Cornelius as "Elric turned inside out, an anarchic streetwise urban ragamuffin with James Bond gear", about as far from heroic fantasy as you can get.
Together with the idea of the multiverse and Tanelorn, it forms the chief rationale and central symbol to my fiction.

 Stargate SG-1 Solutions: Conventions: Amanda Tapping, Australia, 11/02
Having been in Sydney the week before with Friends of Science Fiction, and headed to New Zealand after Melbourne, the lovely lady (and her husband, Alan) were in town for about a week, spending some time doing promos and interviews, and the Saturday with the Multiverse Science Fiction and Fantasy Group.
On arrival, attendees were given their entry badge, a copy of the Multiverse Enquirer (which Amanda was to see later, laugh, and happily grabbed a copy for herself!), flyers for upcoming film preview nights, and a copy of the program for the day's events.
On 16 November, Amanda Tapping was the primary guest at a convention in Melbourne, the second stop of 3 ports of call during the AT tour of the Antipodes.

In fact, Moorcock is credited by the Oxford Universal Dictionary with one of the first printed uses of the word multiverse.

Taken to its logical extreme, this means that every possible outcome of every point in the history of spacetime created a new universe and that all these possibilities exist simultaneously in parallel in what has been called the multiverse.
