*This is a paper I wrote for my Writing 340 course with Dr. Ashley Karlin at USC. It aims to summarize how seriously the concept of a multiverse should be taken, based off of theoretical, mathematical, and experimental evidence. In a time when humanity is coming to garner vast amounts of often surprising information, it’s important to know how to rationally come to turns with new knowledge that challenges the way we think of nature. We should not be scared to reassess our convictions; bold open-mindedness may well be a foundational quality for groundbreaking scientific discoveries or paradigm shifts.
