Perhaps the most annoying aspect of String Theory (and the multiverse stuff that springs from it) is the inability to test it. The theory proposes hidden dimensions so small (smaller than the Planck length) that we can't measure them (thank's a lot, Werner Heisenberg). Other universes mighty occupy the same three physical dimensions as us, but separated along one or more of those other hidden dimensions and therefore truly undetectable.

If every one of the potential cohabitating universes is similarly isolated (as String Theory suggests), there's no practical difference to them not existing at all.

String Theory has several competing forms.  I've never heard of anything possible smaller than a Planck Length.  I have some reading to do, I guess.  Suggest anyplace to start?

I probably should have said "Planck scale" rather than smaller, not that there's any practical difference. The Planck length is fairly beyond our direct measurement reach.

The last time I counted, there were five competing forms and an attempt to unify them (M-Theory). There are some theories that have extra dimension(s) larger than Planck length.

Brian Greene seems a good source of accessible String Theory explanations.

ETA: So long as M-Theory remains ultimately untestable, my answer to Luna's question remains "Yes!".

ETA2: Some Googling finds this... https://phys.org/news/2014-01-scientists-theory.html so maybe we can test String Theory. That said, if we end up with evidence supporting a theory that involves extra dimensions in Planck scale strings, we're still stuck "here", unable to see "there".

Can’t prove it so, either way right?

Theories will always be theories, so people will wonder. I don't foresee science putting an end to speculation, as that would put an end to science.

Wheels within wheels, next time they discover another sub-sub-particle, might as well be another “uni”-verse.

Do you believe it's possible that realities exist which cannot be measured? Or that will never be able to be measured by the human mind?

Yes!

I thought you were in the 'everything will eventually be able to be measured by humans' camp. I must have misunderstood something you said in this conversation that continues through the months..lol.

But I take it you are not yet willing to believe in Terence McKenna's "machine elves" yet?    Or Jung's entities that he met in his unconscious mind? ;0

'Planck length' ... couldn't help but think of how long prim hair looked when an avie tipped their head to look down :P

We'll never be able to measure everything. Parts of our universe are already beyond observation. In a few billion years, intelligent creatures in our neighborhood, absent our history, will not see evidence to support the Big Bang theory and will think that the Local Group of galaxies are all there is.

As for machine elves and Jung's entities, is there a good reason to believe they're anything other than imagined?

That would depend on how you define 'reality'. Perhaps Science is only one way to define reality yet Science proclaims it is the only way.

Not saying I know for sure machine elves or Jungian entities are real -- it's just that we actually have no valid basis to determine that yet.

On the contrary nothing riles me more than

Person: It's not working

Person: I don't know

Oh yeah.  Or the even more annoying Non-Responsive Helpee.  Last night:

In group chat: 

Avatar:  Can somebody help me

Three helpers:  What's the problem?

Crickets.

I pull up her profile and send an IM:  What's the problem?

Avatar:  Why I get kicked off

Me:  Kicked off?  Do you mean, from a particular place, or from SL in general?

Crickets.

You belong to a group that allows crickets? How do they even type?
