Recent Studies on the Universe speculate that there may be 10,500 Universes with different laws of Physics.
There could be a Super Computer controlling the Universes.
This Theory may be new to the West.
Indian philosophy ,asserts this Principle at different levels and systems.
1. Advaita.Or Non-Dualism postulates that the Universal basic Principle is One and That is called Brahman.
This Principle is the essence of Being,Knowledge and Bliss.
The world as we see it is an Illusion(Maya).
(This Illusion is called as ‘Avidya or Nescience’ at the individual level and ‘Maya’or Illusion at the Macro level)
It is not to say that it does not Exist.
It has a Relative existence with in the laid down parameters.
The other Existence is called Absolute ‘where the words do not reach, nor thoughts operate’.
At this Absolute level, there are no Attributes or Qualities ,to use a common word.
This is Called the Nirguna Brahman.
Then what about the World we see and Live?
As said earlier it also Exists,though in a limited sense, with the qualities that can be perceived by the organs provided to us and also the make up of the External universe.
Immanuel Kant put it simple ‘Time and Space are the Goggles through which we perceive’
So the Universe is Finite for we conditioned to perceive the limited or the limited Nature of the Universe.
The different Universes that exist are regulated by other Laws and the Perceptive organs and the Laws are totally different.
There are 14 levels of Existence, each being controlled thus.
2.Theory of Karma. Karma means action.
Every action performed produces equal and opposite reaction.
When we complete an action, we have excluded the other choices presented to us.
Any choice presented has a set pattern.
So when only one option is taken the balance remain.
Action is a form of energy and once available can not be destroyed but can be changed.
Hence the opposite reactions for our actions and the remaining actions remain even after completion of action.
This remnant Energy , since it originates from the Doer, the reactions are limited to the Doer alone.
This in short is the abstract of Karma Theory.
Karma is of three kinds.
Sanchita Karma-Total accumulation of the reactions of the actions of the individual.
What ever we under go is due to a portion of the Karma that is taken out of the totality, Sanchita Karrma.
This Karma is called Prarabda Karma
The balance of the Sanchita Karma will take its course.
Then what about the actions we perform?
This is called Kriyamaana Karma which will yield results and to use banking term, will be credited or debited to your account.
An extension of this thought proves the existence of Life after Death and Rebirth.
As the quality of actions and consequently the reactions differ , one is assigned to different levels of Existence.
Buddhism,Jainism.The Theory of Karma is applied more stringently.Things differ from each other because of the rate at which they vibrate,
Higher the vibration subtler it becomes.
Lower it becomes Gross.
Actions create vasanas and vibrations and these results assign one to different levels of existence and worlds.

“Imagine the situation where we get a big enough computer to simulate our universe, and we start such a simulation on our computers,” said professor Martin Savage, a physicists working on the project. “If that simulation runs long enough, and have same laws as our universe, then something like our universe will emerge within that simulations, and the situation will repeat itself within each simulation,” he said.
The current understanding of string theory indicates that there are 10,500 universes with different laws that determine the behaviour of particles within them, he said.
“So it is certainly true, that with enough computer resources, theorists would like to explore these universes ,” he added.
Explaining how the experiment works, physicists claim that finite computer resources mean that space time is not continuous but set on a grid with a finite volume, designed to create maximum energy subatomic particles. The direction these particles flow in will depend on how they are ordered on the grid. They will be looking at the distribution of the highest energy cosmic rays in order to detect patterns that could suggest that universe is the creation of some futuristic computer technology.
And if it does turns out that we are mere players in some sort of computer programme, they suggested that there may be a way to mess with the program, and play with the minds of our creators. “One could imagine trying to figure out how to manipulate the code, communicate with the code and questions that appear weird to consider today,” he said…
The point that we can manipulate the master code is fallacious as the Finite can not manipulate the Infinite .
Some things never change. Physicists call them the constants of nature. Such quantities as the velocity of light, c, Newton’s constant of gravitation, G, and the mass of the electron, me, are assumed to be the same at all places and times in the universe. They form the scaffolding around which the theories of physics are erected, and they define the fabric of our universe. …
In recent years, however, the status of the constants has grown more muddled, not less. Researchers have found that the best candidate for a theory of everything, the variant of string theory called M-theory, is self-consistent only if the universe has more than four dimensions of space and time – as many as seven more. One implication is that the constants we observe may not, in fact, be the truly fundamental ones. Those live in the full higher-dimensional space, and we see only their three-dimensional “shadows.” …
In fact, string theory allows for a vast number – 10,500 – of possible “worlds” with different self-consistent sets of laws and constants. …
The constants are a tantalizing mystery. Every equation of physics is filled with them, and they seem so prosaic that people tend to forget how unaccountable their values are. Their origin is bound up with some of the grandest questions of modern science, from the unification of physics to the expansion of the universe.
After measuring alpha in around 300 distant galaxies, a consistency emerged: this magic number, which tells us the strength of electromagnetism, is not the same everywhere as it is here on Earth, and seems to vary continuously along a preferred axis through the universe,” Professor John Webb from the University of New South Wales said.
“The implications for our current understanding of science are profound. If the laws of physics turn out to be merely ‘local by-laws’, it might be that whilst our observable part of the universe favours the existence of life and human beings, other far more distant regions may exist where different laws preclude the formation of life, at least as we know it.”(science Daily.com)
