    Of course there are other worlds than these. I just think that humans are to inferior of a species to know about them.
    I have no faith in human perfectability. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. - Edgar Allan Poe

    to hell with it, holding things in is for the castle rooks, ive been though several that i can remember and probaly millions more i can't,

    infact, im sure almost all of us have been though about a million or more universes we cant remember, reincarnation, performed by somthing godlike, but mindless and programmed so it wont be able to have feeling about what has created or destroyed. but theres also a bad side to this-

    I'm not making this up, dead serious.

    I believe you're serious, but I don't understand what you're saying here, could you go into more detail?

    go into more detail? i could write a seires that rivals The Dark Tower itself. im not going to tell ether life story tonight but, some things people should know;

    there are mini-portals to other universes called glitches, theres only about 10 per universe, but they're constantly moving, some times they stay put from anywhere between years and a millisecond. the can move anywhere at anytime into anyplace, but all they can do is make small objects fall into another universe. the largest thats probaly ever gone though is a clothespin, if any of you have had a small object disappear for no reason and there is no cause and it has never been found again, reply to this.

    as for some more disturbing things, well,

    id say those are for another day.

    Or more precisely evidence...and even then of a subjective, undemonstratable sort. Proof is relatively absolute.

    I know this thread is super old, but i'm new here, and it's a fascinating topic, so i thought i'd add to it .

    i believe in parallel/alternate/multi-universes / other worlds - whatever you want to call it - though I don't have any proof really. But until I have proof that there definitively ISN'T other worlds, i'm going to continue believing!

    I was just saying to my hubby the other day that there are other worlds than what we are experiencing right now - whole past worlds that are buried under our current civilizations across the planet - like ancient cities in europe - in fact, in Edinburgh, Scotland there's a whole underground city (you can take a tour of) that the modern day Edinburgh has been built on-top of - so when you're walking around the city, there's really lots of hidden streets and old rooms and buildings (and vaults) underneath! and who is to say in parallel/other universes - for example, the Old Edinburgh (of the middle ages) isn't the current one? and that it hasn't evolved (or 'moved on'?) into the one today?


    and also, more philosophically, everyone is in their own insular worlds, living their own lives in their own towns/cities, and there are other worlds everywhere (everyone else that is having their own experiences that you might not be able to relate to) which i think is interesting to think about too.

    i wonder if there really are doors to these multiverses here on earth...hmmm...

    I can totally agree with this thought.

    That's all the proof I need!
    My point is this too. I think believing this universe exists just for us, just for our world, would be egocentrism, would be nothing different from believing you are the center of the world.

    So yes, I believe there should be other worlds. Or other dimensions, other universes, or other world in our universe; call it as how you want to see it. But, I can't say I believe in travelling to them is possible in some way. I also can't say it is impossible.

    I was going to say this. People are other worlds to me. Many of them had became full of deserts, not allowing life on them. A few of them are full of seasons, rain forests, oceans you would like to explore. That is how I choose friends.

    When I told one of my friends, years ago, that I don't believe that there are parallel universes, really, he said that that showed that I don't believe in the reality of other people. That totally surprised me, because it was exactly what I was thinking about him!
    These days, I am more undecided on the question, but I still know that I don't have to think that other people have whole worlds of their own in order to know that this whole world we're in does not belong just to me.

    I think other life forms have visited us in space craft and via interdeminsional travel.

    As soon as they studied us they put barriers in place that will never allow us to get out of this galaxy.
    Humans are a plaque and by our own actions we have shown that we cannot be trusted.
    If time travel were possible they would probably have already came back and destroyed us.

    This is the physicist in me coming out: I cannot/will not believe in something that cannot be measured or observed. That's why I'm Atheist and why I simply believe in the observable or measurable universe. I know, it seems a little bit dull. But still... it's all I can allow myself to believe. Do you know how hard it is to convert (literally convert: I forced myself out of beliefs I held sacred) yourself out of Christianity when you're 14, just getting into science, in a family full of Christians?

    This is the way I view things: everyone else has the burden of proof; I get the luxury of sitting back and awaiting their proof.

    So you believe in interdimensional-traveling aliens that can constrict us to a galaxy but you won't believe in time-travel? Those must be some old aliens if they're traveling millions of light-years to simply put up a barrier! Time-travel is theoretically possible, by the way. Just like short-range teleportation has been proven and achieved in non-living substances. Just because it isn't commercially available doesn't mean it can't/doesn't happen. I would suggest you look up tachyons. I'm not sure if they've been proven yet, but they have been measured and are believed to be able to travel through time (not consciously, though... they're particles).

    Tachyons have not yet been proven to exist.

    Of course everything that is not impossible has some probability of existing. Just some are more likely than others. Tachyons however do not teleport, or travel time that we know of though (if that's what you're suggesting). It is merely that IF they exist then that appears to be an action of theirs.

    In fairness here though I don't think those imaginary aliens would need to be old. Also in fairness though I'd travel millions of light years to protect the universe/multiverse from our poisonous cosmic stupidity too.

    Whoa Chief......I didn't say I didn't believe in time travel....I think anything that can be conceived by the mind of man is possible....it may not be practical at this time...but it is possible. Just look back at the works of Jules Verne....he foresaw space travel, submarines and atomic power. He also wrote of time travel.....maybe history will prove him correct that it is feasible.

    I was making an (vain it seems) attempt at humor.

    You have to admit that Man's track record has not been too great as far as using our minds and resources to the common good.....we have wasted untold amounts of both on trying to destroy each other.
    I am a student of military history and the amount of material destroyed in this century alone during warfare is staggering.
    On the flip side some of the fantastic technololy we have today is a result of research that was intended to be used against our "enemies".

    My point was that any advanced race that happened onto our ball of dirt (by whatever means of travel) might want to keep us here untill we are no longer a threat to the universe.

    Sorry if I misunderstood. I read this:

    I agree that humans have a shitty track record in some sense, but you also need to realize the undeniable good that has come from humanity. For as many bad things that happen, there are a million more good things. Sure, the holocaust was awful, but it united millions of people in their fight against tyranny. Sure, the attacks of 9/11 were awful, but it united America at a pivotal time in its history (although, I'm not all-too-happy with the outcome of that "togetherness"). The point is, bad things happen, but good things can and have come from them. Not to mention, it's very possible that extraterrestrials have just as many moral issues as our species does. What I don't understand is why you would immediately jump to the aliens being appalled by our species instead of being moved by the rose of generosity and love that grows within it. Sometimes destruction and evil are necessary in order to appreciate the good that occurs in the world. Can you honestly tell me that you would appreciate everything you have and all those around you as much if you didn't believe the world was a bad place?
