Can a universe be its own mother and make multiple baby universes?
Artist Note: Recent developments in science have suggested the possibility of a multiplicity of universes, called the “multiverse.” “The eternal inflation model, an extension of the original inflation model, predicts that the same physics that propels the exponentially rapid expansion of an inflating universe can spawn new universes, which branch off from the original.” 1. Alan Lightman
