Although it hasn’t been proven yet, the multiverse theory remains a mathematically possible formula according to which various other universes exist. Inside these parallel dimensions, we live as projections of our own existence, and we may access these places during dreams.
Even if you find yourself in one of these realities, you make decisions which show up in dreams, making us wonder about their meaning. And why do people dream of future events? Are these paths leading to another universe or a different reality?
For the A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ Greeks and Romans, dreams were considered divine messages. In antiquity, the Chinese interpreted dreams as a door to the underworld, and Native American tribes and Mesoamericans had no doubt about dreams originating from a world they visited while their physical bodies were resting.
In A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ Egypt, those capable of reproducing dreams were shown respect and recognition because they were believed to possess otherworldly powers.
Today, dreams are seen as projections of recent or past events, or due to a deep emotional state which impacted our subconscious. Sometimes we experience vivid dreams, and on other occasions sounds can be perceived, usually familiar sounds.
Courtesy to new and advanced technologies, scientists are now able to gather images compiling scans of our brains during sleep to unravel the science behind the eerie dreaming experience.
Similar to metaphysics, the theory of parallel universes cannot be probed, at least not yet. Besides the theoretical concepts revolving around Earth’s spherical form, invisible electromagnetic fields, the quantum world, black holes and bent space, the multiverse theory also made it to this list.
“The fundamental problem of cosmology is that the laws of physics as we know them break down at the instant of the Big Bang. Well, some people say ‘what’s wrong with that? what’s wrong with having the laws of physics collapse?’ Well, for a physicist this is a disaster,” said American theoretical physicist, futurist, and popularizer of science, Dr. Michio Kaku.
All our lives we’ve decided to the proposition that the Universe obeys knowable laws, laws that can be written down in the language of mathematics and here we have the centerpiece of the Universe itself, a missing piece beyond physical law.
People often dream about a place that they haven’t visited or seen before, which could mean that such visions are due to what we have experienced into a parallel universe.
Other dreams of future events may come true, although we may not always remember them prior to that. Such visions may be insight from a world where we’re experiencing different versions of reality.
Who knows, maybe those dreams with a greater impact on ourselves are truly pathways leading into parallel worlds.
This, of course, is pure speculation, but without stretching our imagination and intuition we’ll never be able to learn more about the methaphysic consequences of the universe and of this reality inside of which we dwell.
