Are We Alone in Our Universe? Science Says Aliens are Living Quietly among Us

February 01, 2017 1
‘’Are we alone in our universe?’’ One of my students asked me this question. I funnily replied, ‘’HOW DARE YOU?’’ A loud laughter aired in the class room. But it was not only a simple joke. We have got unlimited space from the host. We don’t even know the boundary of the land where our house stands. Moreover, we are still unknown the space is flat, open or closed. In the other hand, there are millions of heavenly bodies in our galaxy and there are billion other galaxies in the space. And the most interesting thing is that we are yet to know how many planets are dancing around the sun in our solar system. And we still think that we are the only master mind in the universe though we are yet to know who we are, where we come from and where we are going. Is not it ridiculous? The convincing speculation is that there must be intelligent in other world too because we are here is a proof that life can exist somewhere else. But there are some unavoidable questions in the other hand. Our universe is 13.8 billion years old. We are here for a long time. We are searching aliens in other planets for many years. But we have not found even a pigtail of an alien. Why?

‘’What would you do if you met a ghost on your way?’’ I don’t remember who asked me this question, but I still remember what I answered. I said, ‘’I would be happy and give a treat to the ghost because I would have discovered the life after death.’’ I was not joking. There are three questions which are lapping human minds from ages. Where were we in the past? Where are we now? And where will we be in the future? If you open the pages of Physics to know the answer, you will get the answer like this, ‘’the distinction between past, present and future is illusion.’’ And the answer comes from an authorised source, i.e., Einstein. Yes, according to general theory of relativity of Einstein time is unreal. In the Bhagavad Gita of Hindus, Lord Krishna says to Arjuna, ‘’Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings, nor all the future shall any of us cease to be.’’  Wikipedia has mentioned. This means we were in past, are at present and will be in future.

As Earth was a mystery yesterday, universe is a mystery today. The Earth is round. It was a hidden secret in the past. Similar secret about universe is waiting for us which is even basic. What’s that?

People often say life is an illusion. There is a concept in Hinduism called ‘Maya’ which says the universe we feel is illusion. But most of the people may not know there is even an amazing theory existed in Science which speculates that the universe where we are living is fake. It is called simulation reality.

According to this theory, we are not real. Our world is virtual world created by some intelligent beings through simulation possibly by using a very powerful computer. They are doing it for the research of cultural development, medical science, etc. If you have watched sci fi movie like ‘Inception’ or played a game like ‘Call for a Duty’, then you understand this type of simulation vividly.

Scientists say that if we build a very powerful computer that can create history simulation, it is likely that we will also be able to make such simulation world represented by our duplicates where artificial beings made by us will think that they along with their world is real not a part of our computer simulation. They will feel their universe has begun from something like Big Bang like ours.  The notable thing is that the beings that create our virtual reality should not necessarily be real. They also may be in the simulation of other beings stroking keyboard in the computer. Again they are also simulated by others. And it goes up to who created everybody.

The theory of artificial simulation may not be a concrete reality. However this theory cannot be completely avoided. Because its idea of being in the chain of multiple worlds is thinkable. This belief supports a well established theory ‘Many Worlds Theory’ which says that there are parallel universes. Yes, we can say that the tool or system may not be a computer. Rather it may be something another technology more advanced than a computer which has created this real world but not as a virtual. We say it's computer because we know computer. However if it’s the computer which we have built, then hurrah! We are near the secret hidden behind our universe. And may be this generation is going to know how beautiful their universe looks like from outside.

Today physics is heading towards ‘Many Worlds Theory’ which is a right direction. There are multiple universes existing parallel to each other. This is the basic postulates of Quantum Mechanics. It says that particle can be in multiple places at a same time. It means you are reading this article here in this universe. In the same time you may be watching TV in another universe. And you are walking along the street in another universe. Accepting that multivers is real, in my opinion, there are two ways to walk from one universe to another.

First way is travel through spacecraft. But the speed should be faster than light. But it is not even possible. Because the general theory of relativity forbids us to travel faster than light. It says that nothing can travel faster than light. The fasted motion on the earth in the Large Hadron Collider of CERN with the highest speed of 99.99% of the speed of light convinces that Einstein is not going to be proven wrong. So the curiosity ends here.

Another option is break the barrier between two universes. Yes, there is special mechanism between universes which works as a wall between two. What’s that? It’s a turtle but not the one which lives nearby you.

You may have heard the old story that said our world is on a turtle. When they said the earth is on a turtle, they were not joking. Actually they were talking about our universe and black hole not earth and turtle at all. We are inside a black hole because our universe has been coded here.

There arises an obvious question. If the earth is on a turtle, then what is the turtle on? They have given symbolic answer again, ‘’There is turtle all to the down.’’ Hey there, did you understand what they said? They just talked about multiple universes.

They actually meant to say that a universe is inside a black hole of its mother universe and a baby universe also has black hole with another baby universe inside it. And that universe also has another black hole with another universe. And it’s all to the down.

Besides, they have clearly mentioned a hollow in the story which is not other than black hole they are giving hint about. But who are they? How do they know about black hole in earlier than 17th century whereas black hole was discovered in 19th century? They are amazing. I am their big fan now, aren’t you? Moreover, as they illustrated a flat earth on a turtle, it makes sense to believe that our universe is flat in shape.

So now we may believe that we are in the core of a massive black hole and beyond the black hole there is another universe. And for the beings living in that universe we are in a white whole. And so are they.

Based on the Carton theory of Einstein, World renowned physicist Nikodem Poplawski says when a black hole forms upon the collapse of a dying star, a universe is born at the same time from the white hole on the other side of the wormhole. For this discovery, Nikodem Poplwski has been enlisted in the list of top 5 scientists of the world with the possibility to be another Einstein by National Geographic Magazine.

White hole is the hypothetical region of spacetime where matter and light can escape from it but it cannot be entered from the outside. It’s the reversal of black hole or time. In a black hole matter and light can checks in but can’t escape because the escape velocity is faster than light there. According to a reliable source white holes are expected to have gravity. So they attract objects, but anything on a collision course with a white hole would never reach it.

In this way black hole and white hole are the mouths of wormhole. As there is black hole between universes neither we nor our messages can reach there. Even our light can’t be detected. As the wall is unbreakable you can never meet living beings in another universe. Neither can they communicate with us. It’s impossible to cross the event horizon of the black hole to reach the other side. Neither is it possible to reach the event horizon of a white hole.

As atom represents the pattern of our solar system {electrons orbits around the nucleus without falling on it}, there must be something which represents the pattern of the whole universe. What’s that? We should find out what that is. Let’s assume, that is our earth itself.

Assume that our earth is a universe. Now those 8 planets are other universes. Now there are many planets in this universe. For instance, there is sea where different species live. There is forest where many animals live. There is life even in the air. And we humans are also here. For a creature in the sea, the universe is only within sea boundary. For an animal of forest, the space is only the forest. For the species of the air, life is only there.  These species can never explore how and how big their universe is and they don’t even know we humans exist quietly among them.

Same happens with us. We think the universe is all what we know. But it is not. We think we are the most intelligent beings in this universe but we are not. Since we have not created this universe it is likely to say that we are not the master mind here. There are multiple civilisations in our own universe which are ranked according to their advancement. As we know that there are some galaxies which are billions of years older than us, there is definitely another civilisation more advanced than us and there may be even another civilisation more advanced than that one. The story does not end here. This rank goes up to the greatest civilisation living across our universe that has created all of us. Hinduism describes millions of gods and goddess and they are believed to be more than worshippers in numbers.

This may be a wild theory but it may be a reality too. I call this theory ‘’Many Tribes Hypothesis’’. According to this theory it is clear that there is advanced society better than us in technology and knowledge. They are in thousands of stars of Milky Way and other galaxies. We are not able to contact them because our technology is not matured to reach up to them. They are so far from us. But they can contact us because they are more advanced than us. However they have never communicated with us. Why?

Scientists say that they do not contact us because they do not think we are important. For instance, as we are human civilisation more advanced than other species on the earth, we do not communicate with other species to share our knowledge with them.

Another reason we can say that they are living among us but we don't know their presence. It’s because we do not have natural sense or artificial technology to detect them. For instance, we are humans more civilised than ants but they may not realise we are present here watching them every moment. Because they lack natural sense and artificial technology to detect our presence.

We know the plants of the Sahara desert can not survive in Atlas Mountains. The animals of the water can not survive on the land. We can’t survive on the summit of  Mt. Everest or in the Pacific ocean without oxygen. Neither can we reside in Antarctica permanently. However we sometimes go there for research. It happens with aliens too. The difference in gravity, distance from the sun, climate, etc in their planet may have made them different in shape, weight and adaptability. As a result they may not survive in our world. So they don’t live with us permanently. But they may come to our world for research purpose. This may be the reason some reputed personalities had seen UFOs on the earth.

There is no doubt we are not alone in our universe. There are different tribes of aliens which are living quietly with us. But our sense and technology are too little to detect their existence. Perhaps it’s impossible for us to contact with them. However, there is a way we can contact with them. We should make them contact with us. And we can do it by two ways. We should either convince them that we are important for them or make them feel that we are a threat to them. But I am sorry dear, it may not work. Because it’s similar to the penguins of Antarctica trying to convince NASA scientists that they are very important for humans and they are giving a big threat to the humankind.
