UFOs zipping back and forth between universes, or even being conjured up out of a parallel reality as tulpic or morphogenic forms by our own imaginations is a fun idea. I guess the primarly problem I run into is that in spite of the mathematical potential for a multiverse, I only experience one universe at a time. Why would that be? Why does my perspective of time and space seem to be so limited, given the infinite variety of mathematical possibilities? I suppose that by DNA limiting my conscious interaction with a multiple universe reality I have a better chance at survival. Time only flows in one direction, so I can gain some understanding of cause and effect, for example. But there also might be some real advantages to being able to shift from one universe to another at will. Maybe our alien pals can do this like walking through a door. The nature of physical reality... I admit my profound ignorance.
