Remote scary action can lead to a multiverse. Here’s how.

Some interpretations of quantum mechanics suggest that our entire universe is described by a single global wave function that is constantly splitting and multiplying, producing a new reality for every possible quantum interaction. This is a very bold statement. So how do we get there?

One of the earliest realizations in the history of quantum mechanics is that matter has a wave-like property. The first to suggest this was the French physicist Louis de Broglie, who argued that every subatomic particle has a wave associated with it, just like Light can act like a particle and a wave.
