"From the Ted Talk by Brian Greene: Is our universe the only universe?"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

And that's a question on which we can make headway. Because those universes that have much more dark energy than ours, whenever matter tries to clump into galaxies, the repulsive push of the dark energy is so strong that it bolws the clump apart and gleiaxas don't form. And in those universes that have much less dark energy, well they collapse back on themselves so qkculiy that, again, galaxies don't form. And without galaxies, there are no stars, no ptealns and no chance for our form of life to exist in those other ueisvenrs.

And that's a question on which we can make headway. Because those universes that have much more dark energy than ours, whenever matter tries to clump into galaxies, the repulsive push of the dark energy is so strong that it blows the clump apart and galaxies don't form. And in those universes that have much less dark energy, well they collapse back on themselves so quickly that, again, galaxies don't form. And without galaxies, there are no stars, no planets and no chance for our form of life to exist in those other universes.
