Multiple universes. Conceptual computer artwork of many Earths, representing the many worlds quantum theory. This theory is an attempt to explain the fundamental uncertainty of quantum theory and some of the strange events predicted by quantum theory. This includes the way an observer affects quantum descriptions (wavefunctions) of objects. Standard interpretations of quantum theory say that where a wavefunction can be in one of two possible states, the act of observation collapses the wavefunction so that the observed state survives. Many worlds theory speculates that the wavefunction splits and the other state survives in a parallel universe.
