The Search For Neutrons That Leak Into Our World From Other Universes

One of the more exciting predictions from "braneworld" theories of high energy physics is that matter can leak out of other universes into our own, and vice versa. The basic idea is that our three-dimensional universe or brane is embedded in a much larger multi-dimensional cosmos. These branes can become coupled so that a quantum particle such as a neutron can exist in a superposition of states in both universes at the same time. When the neutron collides with something, the superposition collapses and the particle must suddenly exist in one brane or the other. That means neutrons from our universe can leak into other branes and then back again. Now physicists are devising an experiment to look for this neutron leakage. They plan to put a well shielded neutron detector next to a shielded nuclear reactor that produces neutrons at a research facility in France. All this shielding means the detector should not see any neutrons from inside the reactor. However, if the neutrons are leaking into another brane and then back into our world, they can bypass this shielding and trigger the detector. The team has not yet set a date for the experiment but the discovery of neutrons (or anything else) leaking into our universe would be huge.

It would be fascinating, it's not been proven other universes even exist. It's theoretical.
However, If proven, then I know where my left socks and car keys ended up.

We need to build a fence to keep these undocumented neutrons out of our Universe and from taking jobs from our neutrons. # IAmNotAScientist

Why is it they want to say there are other universes? Could they not be just part of this one?
Can somebody clarify that for me?

I'll write this thread a Song

~~~ Clarified Anomalies ~~~~~~

Sober man wants his grain

where in he eats to grow
his brain

Drunk wants his grain
to drink away his pain

I believe ,,, I believe I believe

we can reach life universally wide

If we can just dispense
with our pride

Mother Loves her Babe
Power Mongers Love their slaves
we believe we love our brains
But rent them out
like a cheap motel
and in the end
we find out
we've been causing us
to live
a Living Hell

I believe ,,, I believe ,,, I believe ,,,,
we can shine through
all that we grieve

We can see , if only we'd look
we can become , without reading
the book

I Believe ,,, I believe ,,, I believe ,,,

So then if that is the case we could then invent the ZPM module, have free energy but would hope there wouldn't be a fracture in spacetime to cause an antimatter explosion.

That has some epic problem potential.

There may be some portal in my dryer when socks with a certain static charge go missing...

I believe there's a universal portal connecting all dryers and washing machines abducting odd socks everywhere 13.gif
