It does not depend on exotic theories such as the multiverse or the “many worlds” interpretation of quantum mechanics, in which the universe constantly bifurcates. It is an unavoidable consequence of the standard theory of our universe. Parallel worlds are an unavoidable consequence of our standard theory All this needs some explanation.
