How Many Universes ARE There, Anyway?
George Gale
University of Missouri, Kansas City

Abstract: One consequence of the interaction (some would call it a "collision") between quantum physics and cosmology is an interest in "many-worlds" or "multi-verse" theory. In this paper I discuss various issues--for example, 'where could many worlds be put?' 'who cares, and why?', and so on--involved in many-worlds theory. As I will show, many-worlds investigations have both scientific and philosophical interest.
