|Figure 1. A graphical representation of the multiple inflationary bubbles of Andrei Linde's "self-reproducing inflationary universe". Linde's theory is one attempt to generate a "world ensemble," or ensemble of varying universes -- within a larger Universe -- in which the physical laws and properties may differ from one universe to the next. Changes in shading represent "mutations" in basic physical properties from "parent" to "offspring" universes. (Figure after Andrei Linde, "The Self-Reproducing Inflationary Universe, " Scientific American 271 [November 1994]; p.55.)|
