FIRST CONTACT: Has this multiverse expert finally made contact with an nearby universe?
Burt Goldman, who has been described as The American Monk, has spent more than half a century perfecting the art of meditation, and believes that he is now able to reach such a state of zen that he can quantum jump to alternate universes through mediation.
Mr Goldman’s claims rely on the multiverse theory which suggest that there are an infinite number of universes where there are ever so slight changes.
Through meditation, Mr Goldman, who describes himself on his website as “a world renowned meditation master, a spiritual coach and mind power expert” says that he is able to tap into those other universes, which ultimately help to improve himself.
In one of his YouTube videos, he says: “There’s an infinite number of parallel realities existing with us in the same room.
“Those aren’t my words, those are the words of a Nobel laureate in physics,” he says in reference to Steven Weinberg.
Mr Goldman continues: “The first time I [quantum jumped] I was two or three years old.
“I do a quantum jump, and now I’m talking to the great photographer Burt Goldman.
“The best way that I can describe it at the time is a controlled daydream.
“It’s much more than that, but it’s the only way I can get you to understand it.”
Mr Goldman describes the process as a sort of mental teleportation, and says that the multiverses are all around us, but most of us are not fine tuned to it.
He likens the process as tuning a radio.
Mr Goldman says: “When you turn on a radio, you can only listen to one frequency at a time.
“Likewise, in our universe, we’re tuned into the frequency that corresponds to a physical reality, what we know.”
