When Parallel Worlds Interact with Ours
In the main podcast Howard Wiseman describes a new model in which the forces between many *classical* parallel worlds create quantum effects in ours (indeterminism, tunnelling, double-slit interference, uncertainty). In this extended edition hear about zero-point and vacuum energies, quantised energy levels & entanglement too.
