A Mirror Universe Where Time Runs Backwards

Post by Riddick » 01-20-2016 01:43 AM

Although we experience time in one direction—we all get older, we have records of the past but not the future—there’s nothing in the laws of physics that insists time must move forward.

Two separate groups of prominent physicists are working on models that examine the initial conditions that might have created the arrow of time, and both seem to show time moving in two different directions.

When the Big Bang created our universe, these physicists believe it also created an inverse mirror universe where time moves in the opposite direction. From our perspective, time in the parallel universe moves backward. But anyone in the parallel universe would perceive our universe’s time as moving backward.

While their theory is far from universally accepted, if classical physics alone is distorting our preconceptions of time, once questions of quantum physics are introduced, then it suggests there’s certainly more to time than our linear, one-directional experience.

Could I jump on the mirror universe for about 25 years and then jump back?
