NASA Reportedly Found Evidence of A Parallel Universe Where Time Runs Backwards

Could it be true?

Could the The King: Eternal Monarch, and the premise of hundreds of science fiction novels over the years, actually be spot on? A discovery from NASA seems to prove so as a group of scientists working at the Antarctic reported evidence of a parallel universe.

The news currently causing a frenzy throughout social media actually dates back from reports in 2016, and one in 2018 from the University of Hawaii, but is only recently gaining traction after an article from UK-based science magazine New Scientist was published.

According to New Scientist, this apparent alternate earth could be a “mirror world” where “positive is negative, left is right and time runs backwards.” Anyone else reminded of the Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett movie a.k.a. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button?

Either way, one thing’s for sure, this mind boggling theory’s a curious one indeed. To start off, the NASA-sponsored research group, which was originally funded to search for “ghostly particles that fill the universe,” came to the probability of parallel world using a purpose-built giant balloon. Dubbed the Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna, or ANITA, this massive balloon was released out into the sky above Antarctica while carrying electronic antennas to detect high-energy particles coming down from space.

Two attempts were made in the span of two years but results came up with nothing. By ANITA’s third flight, the same group of scientists decided to examine the supposed white noise brought back from their previous attempts.

As it turns out, what their antennae detected was nothing close to normal: high energy particles coming up from out of the earth. 

What makes this so peculiar? As per lead investigator Peter Gorham, low-energy, subatomic neutrinos with a mass close to zero can pass through Earth without any problems, but higher-energy objects are stopped by the solid matter of our planet.

Thus, high-energy particles can only be detected if they’re coming “down” from space, as opposed to the significantly heavier particles detected by ANITA that were traveling upwards. According to Gorham, this implies that these particles are actually moving backwards in time.

"The simplest explanation for the phenomenon is that at the moment of the Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago, two universes were formed—ours and one that from our perspective is running in reverse with time going backwards,”  he further suggested in their report.

However, amid multiple reports on this theory, Jackson Ryan, the science editor of CNET.com, refutes the idea of a parallel universe. "Scientists haven't actually discovered a parallel universe, but you might think they have, based on multiple reports from across the web," he wrote, citing that there may be varying explanations for the detected phenomenon such as the idea that the "Antarctic ice may itself be giving rise to these anomalous events."

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
