The Strange Case of Intelligent Observers in the Cosmos

Is the Universe a tiny bubble of a much larger Multiverse? Find out!

If a tree falls in the forest, and nobody is there to hear, does it make a sound? This age-old question is similar to one that cosmologists have been asking about the latest scientific discoveries about the Universe. Could the Universe be said to "exist" if the laws of physics precluded the evolution of intelligent observers? Another tantalizing idea is that the observable Universe is just one tiny bubble of a much larger Multiverse, throughout which the very laws of physics might be changing. Dr Roberto Trotta, from Oxford University’s Department of Astrophysics, will explore this fascinating twilight zone at the frontiers of knowledge where science, philosophy and speculation meet and often merge.
