Thank you for starting the topic on this board, for I believe this is an IMPORTANT question to ponder, which could help us understand the basics of the big Universe, its definitive function and perhaps…ORIGIN!
First, let’s define “universe”. When we speak of Universe we speak about a complex, partially or completely connected closed set of interacting sub-systems that don't (considerably) interfere with each other, remote, elements in the superposition. Any (complex) system and its coupled environment are qualified as Universe.
In term of small microscopic particles constituting all matter in the ‘small’ universe thus in the ‘big’ universe, it is possible for all atomic components to co-exist in parallel space-time continuums. In the double slit experiment, for example here, the wave function of the subatomic particles has DIFFERENT PATHS, and overlap at different space-time points creating the electromagnetic spectrum Light.
With this experiment, we are observing simultaneous universes in a non-interacting linear superposition! Which implied the questions “why aren't we aware of these other worlds in the big macrocosm”.“Why do we only ever experience one world?"
Many scientists, philosophers are unhappy with the theory of parallel universes because it seems to require a fundamental quantum ie. Energy split in one continuum. This contradicts the classical philosophy that observations should emerge only at one core physical conjecture and not at many and different elusive levels, as they are in the case of this wave-particle duality Light experiments interpretation.
According to present knowledge of physics it's possible to detect the presence of other nearby (subatomic) worlds, but It is IMPOSSIBLE to travel to or communicates with them through intrusion effects ...It is so strange to our way of thinking because we can only think and perceive in three dimensions.
However, the goal of MYSTICAL TEACHING OF ORIGINAL AFRICANS TRADITIONS is similar of theoretical physics! Both seek to achieve an understanding of the Unity of the big Universe. The main difference is one is a subjective experience, and the other is an objective explanation.
