VOLUME 1 - HYPERON
- I am sorry, General. So I will try to break down the study for an easy understanding.
Professor Thar Tegthar crosses his arms and puts a hand over the mouth, thinking. Fixing the glasses, he starts to talk, again.
- Probes and data analysis confirmed theoretical predictions that our Universe is not unique. There are infinite ones.
He goes to the blackboard and points to an area full of graphics.
- And these universes can be grouped into 4 categories: Type I, all with the same physical laws; Type II, infinite sets of Type I universes, each with its own physical laws; Type III, identical to the other ones, but in the dimensionally infinite Hilthar quantum space; and finally the Type IV, an ensemble of different mathematical structures with any imaginable physical laws. For instance, we could have a universe that is a torus, or just four points.
President of the Surnah Parliament Thari Akthari, a woman in her late 40s, wearing a colourful haji and a gold hair ornament, interrupts.
- Wow. Even your breakdown is very hard to digest, Professor.
- Yes, yes, I know, Ma'am, but this prologue was necessary. Using probes, we could even send and receive information from these universes. The results are really amazing. They totally confirm our theoretical predictions.
General Thar Yarthar, Erlah's Joint Chief of Staff, interlaces the fingers of both hands while raises his eyebrows.
- Are there habitable universes?
The professor fixes his glasses, leaving a print of chalk dust in them.
- I will not bother you with another set of definitions, but we've found an important result: the probability of the existence of Level I civilisations, like ours, is low. Extremely low. Less than one planet in an entire universe. Most of the universes don't have any advanced civilisation at all.
