(ORDO NEWS) — Some scientists are convinced that there is a “mirror world” in our Universe that affects gravity, but no one knows exactly what it really looks like.
A study by three scientists, published in the journal Physical Review Letters, says that the mirror world hypothesis is based on problems with the Hubble constant , the expansion rate of the universe.
A report from SciTechDaily yesterday said that the predicted value for this constant is significantly less than what we get from practical measurements, and scientists are trying to figure out what causes this strange discrepancy. Probably the reason for this is the mirror world, which we do not see yet.
“This may provide an opportunity to understand why there is a discrepancy between different measurements of the expansion rate of the universe,” the scientists said in the study.
A parallel world?
Scientists have long practiced creating models of the universe. Now the challenge is to create one that doesn’t violate any of the cosmological rules we’ve studied.
The authors of the study say that if the universe somehow uses what we know about its physics and symmetry, then it is likely that there could be a mirror world very similar to ours, but invisible, except for the gravitational effect on our reality.
“At first glance, this may seem crazy, but the topic of mirror worlds is raised in a lot of the physics literature,” Francis-Ian Cyr-Racine, co-author of the study and assistant professor of physics and astronomy at the University of New Mexico, said in a statement.
“Our work makes it possible for the first time to link the physics literature to an important problem in cosmology.”
Given that some believe that the universe itself is a neural network , and that there may even be two realities interacting with each other, then the idea of the existence of a mirror world is not the wildest hypothesis we have ever heard. But still I would like more practical evidence.
