Traversing the Multiverse

Dimensional travel is a concept that has long been dreamed of by scientists as a means of expanding human consciousness into incredible realms of adventure and discovering the possibilities beyond our own mortal world.  But how would we set about researching a means of crossing the rift and stepping into another reality?

There has been a considerable amount of study in the field of quantum physics to attempt to explain how certain quantum objects interact with one another, but there is no way yet to explain how these interactions take place, such as the ability for one quantum object to occupy two spaces at once.  As quantum physics progressed, the majority opinion went from a simple automatic observation and conclusion that our world was a simple one that could be seen and felt to an incredibly thrilling reality where every imaginable outcome is seen as a potential reality given the span of an infinite and ever-expanding multiverse.

As history would have it, humanity started off in small groups perceiving only their own territory as the universe, then it progressed to a flat world view where Earth is the center of the universe.  Since then, a whole new galaxy and universe have emerged indicating that we are incredibly finite in our existence.  But now it seems we too are infinite, spanning trillions upon trillions of different universes and letting our own identities merge with a multitude of vistas that may seem quite alien to us at some points.  But just as we took to the sea, the sky, and eventually space, will we one day be able to traverse the veil between our reality and the expanses of others?

Unfortunately, any such travel would have to take place coming from a way of thinking that was vastly different to our own.  Even analogies such as “frequency” and “time” are based around concepts that are relatively new and of which we have a limited understanding even to this day.  Not only this, but they are based almost entirely off of our own experience here in the limited world we can perceive.

Perhaps one means of creating a dimensional portal would be to set up an “anchor” in one universe around which travel can “snap back” to any one point in time.  An unfortunate side effect of time travel is that time is merely a progression of events that happen in the known universe.  A given frame of time would not be a second or a millisecond, but rather the span of time throughout the entire universe between one quantum event and the next.  The actual “time” between these events does not matter, and is hardly a factor at all in the equation.  Keep in mind, however, that thought process is itself an event based in a physical chemical reality, even if consciousness is separated from the brain itself somehow.  In other words, a million years could pass between one quantum event and the next, but if everything was completely frozen for a million “years” this would be imperceptible if no deterioration or energy exchange took place as well.

So with such a simple concept as time blocking us from truly understanding even the perceptible reality around us, it seems a Herculean task to actually explore concepts beyond the given universe we have been shown and attempt to harness those beyond it.  Of course this is no reason to give up, of course.  Humanity has made great strides in the quantum field and understood through mathematics and hard work the principles behind several concepts that could easily have simply been beyond us had the bright minds exploring thae concepts not persevered and thought outside of the norm.
