The concept of a divine law giver, which motivated the pioneers of science to expect law and regularity in nature, has largely been forgotten. Instead, many see theism as an outdated model that will eventually collapse in the face of scientific progress. And the multiverse, motivated by string theory, is sometimes seen as the weapon that will deal God his death blow. So are God and the multiverse like Harry and Lord Voldemort?
Can one not live while the other survives? Our universe is incredibly improbable. With those odds, it is safe to conclude that our life-permitting universe was not produced by random chance. In principle, a clever new theory could solve these fine-tuning problems, but it is highly improbable that such a theory would have evaded experimental detection thus far.
If our universe is somehow not fine-tuned, it was assembled in a such a way as to fool us into thinking that it was. So, how does the non-theist go about explaining this fine-tuning without resorting to a cosmic designer? The answer given by almost all of my non-theistic colleagues is the multiverse hypothesis.
The multiverse hypothesis holds that there exist an enormous, possibly infinite, number of universes. If this sounds more like science fiction than science to you, you are not alone. Perhaps the biggest problem facing the multiverse theory is that it is completely untestable.
For the non-theist who wants to deny the existence of God because of a perceived scarcity of experimental evidence, the multiverse should be tough to swallow. Belief in the multiverse requires a leap of faith beyond science and into the realm of metaphysics. Aside from experimental evidence, the next best thing a multiverse proponent could hope for would be a multiverse-creating mechanism that follows from known laws of physics. However, contrary to what some physicists might be claiming,  even this is currently a fantasy: no theory that directly implies a multiverse will be testable in the foreseeable future.
But if we are willing to consider more speculative theories, things get much more interesting. Does the string landscape entail a multiverse?
Here, we must be careful. The hypothetical universes of the string landscape are mere possibilities. They need not be realized in any physical way. However, there are several ways in which the string landscape suggests a multiverse. First, string theory has shown that there are plenty of theoretically consistent possible universes besides our own, which is just the sort of thing we would expect to find if a multiverse does exist.
In the absence of a cosmic designer who preferred a life-permitting universe, it is difficult to imagine why the physical constants in our universe should be the only ones in the landscape that are actually realized. Given both eternal inflation and string theory, we would indeed expect a multiverse to exist. So, there are good reasons to believe in a multiverse, and it is not as crazy as it might seem at first. Nevertheless, the multiverse warrants a healthy dose of skepticism. First, all versions of the multiverse rely on speculative theories.
But the effective theory of inflation says nothing of multiverses. Only certain models of inflation give rise to multiverse-producing eternal inflation, and every such model faces problems. Further, the mechanism for eternal inflation will not by itself give rise to different laws of physics in each of the bubble universes it creates. This means that, without an additional speculative theory i.
Finally, and most importantly, the theory of the multiverse is beset with paradoxes. In an eternal inflation multiverse, anything that can happen will happen an infinite number of times, rendering the theory incapable of predicting anything. In light of these difficulties, it is not clear to what extent the multiverse can be said to solve the problems of fine-tuning—even our best multiverse theories seem to introduce fine-tuning problems of their own.
It would not surprise me if our God, who imagined galaxies and black holes and oceans and epigenetics and breathed them all into existence, would create other universes.
God and the multiverse are not like Harry and Lord Voldemort. In the Quantum Realm, space and time are believed to be irrelevant.
In still others, reality may be so radically different from ours as to be unrecognizable. We don't know, at least not yet. What would we see? It just says it's random chance. Each alternate universe carries its own different version of reality. So it is not a fractal structure," said Hawking.
Scott Lang entering the Quantum Realm. After his battle with Darren Cross , Scott Lang was briefly left trapped in the Quantum Realm, but managed to escape by altering the Ant-Man Suit 's mechanisms; replacing the shrinking regulator with an enlarging one by installing a blue Pym Particles Disk in his regulator. Lang claimed to have no recollection of what he experienced there however, much to Pym 's disappointment.

Stephen Strange passing through the Quantum Realm. Later, when able to open a more stable tunnel, van Dyne, sending a message through Lang, gave her exact location, before revealing that there were only two hours before the Quantum Realm's instability would move her, causing her to disappear for another century. Upon arriving at Janet's location however, Hank becomes disoriented due to the Quantum Realm's nature, but Janet is able to find him and they reunite.
They then come back with the lab returning to its original size. Scott Lang trapped in the Quantum Realm.
Though Janet van Dyne managed to help stabilize Ghost for the time being, they needed more quantum energy to fully heal her. To this end, Scott Lang was sent back into the Quantum Realm with a device to absorb quantum energy. However, while he was doing this task, Thanos used the Infinity Gauntlet to wipe out half the life in existence. Pronounced dead by society as his body was never recovered, Scott Lang remained trapped in the Quantum Realm as the truck was placed in a warehouse.
For Lang's luck, however, a rat happened to sniff around the truck, accidentally setting the controls to bring him back, causing Lang to be shot from the truck to a bunch of garbage, bringing him back to reality. Five years had passed, but for Lang, it had only been five hours. The Quantum Realm was essential in the Avengers ' plan to undo the Snap. Lang introduced the idea of going to the Quantum Realm to acquire past versions of the Infinity Stones , since in the present, the Stones were destroyed by Thanos.
While the initial tests were unsuccessful, with Lang turning back into a kid, an old man, and a baby in the tests, the final test worked, as Lang was able to return in his correct age and appearance. Clint Barton volunteered to the test run and was able to travel the Quantum Realm to land on a point where his family was still alive. The test was proved to be successful when Clint brought back a glove taken from the past.
