This review is on NOVA: The Fabric of the Cosmos, Ep. 4 "Universe or Multiverse?"
I like to think that I am an unique individual, but here in this fourth episode of Nova: the Fabric of the Cosmos, renowned physicist and author Brian Greene proposes that there might be another me writing Amazon reviews at this exact moment - in a parallel universe exactly like ours. In fact, according to Brian Greene, our universe is just one among an infinite number of universes floating like bubbles in a forever expanding "multiverse". This theory is advanced by American physicist Alan Guth and Russian physicists Alex Vilenkin and Andrei Linde. They propose that the Big Bang, which created our universe, is merely one of an infinite number of bangs in the past and will be in the future, creating an infinite number of universes, each with its own properties, in an eternal inflationary multiverse. In this multiverse with infinite number of universes, one of them is going to be exactly like ours with a duplicate of each one of us. This theory of eternal inflation seems to be supported by the String Theory of quantum mechanics and the actual measurement of the amount of dark energy in our universe. But is the multiverse fairy tale or serious science? I'll let the viewers decide. Brian Greene has done a marvelous job explaining an immensely complicated subject in the simplest terms. Don't miss out on this thought provoking series.

I agree with you totally! It might be a fairytale at that.
