Michio Kaku, a theoretical physicist, describes human consciousness as "a level at which we can plan, anticipate and visualize the future," which puts us in a category all our own -- separate from reptiles, plants, and other mammals. He describes his theory of consciousness as "the number of feedback loops required to make a model of your position in space with relation to other organisms and finally, in relationship to time." -- Futurism.com
So, our ability to consider what the future might look like is quite easy... if we put together a series of considerations and say "what if..."
Brian Greene, an American theoretical physicist, mathematician, and string theorist, talks about the Multiverse as a place where there are unlimited universes, each with their own set of parameters. Our universe abides by it's own laws, but that doesn't necessarily mean that other universes would as well, if we were to devise a way to analyze them.
Dr. Michio Kaku also asks, "Is it ever possible on any scale to perhaps flip between different universes?" and describes deja vu as a hypothetical scenario of that occurring. Things seem vaguely familiar... somewhat identifiable... but still strangely different. So, when we look beyond our current realities into scenarios of the future, or to dimensions outside our own, what do we see?
