Physics of Doctor Strange

Sign in to follow this  


A couple of months ago, I watched Marvel's Doctor Strange. The physics of the movie really fascinated me, so i decided to delve deeper and learn about the physics of this very interesting movie. Doctor Strange discusses the idea of the multiverse. The multiverse is the hypothetical set of possible universes, including the universe in which we live. These universes make up everything that exists: the entirety of space, time, matter, energy, and the physical laws and constants that describe them. For instance, I could be eating pancakes for breakfast in one universe and cereal in another. Doctor Strange suggests that there are many parallel universes each with their own laws. They refer to these universes as dimensions in which different physical laws can be changed. Gravity can be 20 times stronger in one universe over another. Ultimately, these universes or dimensions can meld together and connections can be made between them. Doctor Strange also discusses the idea of consciousness and the mind-problem- the question of how the human mind and body interact. Scientist still have no idea how the human body and mind can coincide. To answer this question, it is important to study religion, psychology, and nuclear physic together. While people may use the words brain and mind interchangeably, they are two separate complex entities that work together and it is important to know why this is.
