So instead of universes that have random laws of physics and random histories, it sounds like Stephen Hawking's last research tends to see that all universes have to have the same laws of physics.As physicists analysed the idea it emerged that it carried with it the implication that the Big Bang would create not just one universe - but an endless supply.
The new Hawking-Hertog assessment indicates that there can only be universes that have the same laws of physics as our own.
That conjecture means that our Universe is typical and so observations we make from our viewpoint will be meaningful in developing our ideas of how other universes emerged.
Again, I'm not a cosmologist, but it boggles my mind where they get the interpretation of "infinite universes" from, especially since "infinity" is an interesting number to "calculate".
