From the Multiverse Crosstalk Radio programme notes at Savvy Funk: The current flood of post-factualisms, from conspiracy theories to “alternative facts” and fake news (produced by individuals, institutions, and states), can be explained scientifically when we assume that a) Hugh Everett’s theory of multiple universes is not only mathematically but also literally true; and that b) these universes are not fully independent of each other, but forms of crosstalk between them are possible. In an attempt to illuminate the possible nature of the originating universe(s), Multiverse Crosstalk Radio captures, collects, and recasts such random transmissions from Elsewhere by scientific means, such as advanced data sonification techniques and context-reconstructions that draw on multiverse theory and radical constructivism.
