Multiplex Realism

When studying the strange behavior of quantum and relativistic entities, we must surrender to the evidence that our three-dimensional Euclidean space, or four-dimensional pseudo-Euclidean spacetime, are just temporary crystallizations of theaters for reality, where the macroscopic material and energetic entities can take ‘a place’ and meet with each other. According to the view of multiplex realism, different theaters can be conceived and constructed, to stage the whole of our reality. This has consequences not only for our understanding of the nature of the physical world, but also for our understanding of the phenomena underlying the manifestation of the consciousness, such as that of precognition, which would simply originate from the possibility of accessing a more abstract web of connections, beyond those that are describable in spatiotemporal terms.
