It's kind of strange, after watching I Dated A Robot on CN tonight, that after Professor saying at the Edge Of The Universe, that there are only one parrnell universe, he went out and made some in boxes!!!  hmpf

No wonder that episode is dated-REALLY!!!  roll eyes

The universes in boxes didn't exist until the Professor(s) made them.  The cowboy universe must be the only naturally-occurring parallel universe.

I thought the cowboy world was the only parallel universe, and the Professor created alternate universes in the boxes.

Parallel and Alternate seem to be a good argument, I agree with El Zilcho...

Fry: Are there infinite parellel universes?
Professor: No, just one.

Well, that was just what the professor knew at the time. I don't think he was aware of any other universe's until The Farnsworth Parabox.

That's why it's a parabox!!

I actually was thinking about this yesterday, and I came to the conclusion that the cowboy universe is the only one adjacent to Universe A, and the other ones could only be reached through the paraboxes. But now I just agree with El Zilcho.

I like Beamer's theory.  Keep in mind that parallel universes have been mentioned more than just the two times.  There was a parallel universe in The Why Of Fry and the Miss Parallel Universe pageant in Lesser Of Two Evils, also Parallel Universal Studios.

My God! What if all of these parallel universes of our parallel universe are just another part of our universe that we just don't understand and there is an Ultra Parallel Universe with universes even more parallel to those which are parallel to us. It's so stupid it just might be real.

I don't believe the professor "invented" the parallel universes, since the professor from the paralel universe said he simultaneously invented their universe. I agree more with the fact that he simply didn't know there were more parallel universes, he is a scientist and scientists just make claims based on what they know, not what it is.

Yep, Luis, that's correct, although some have been known to disregard what is known just so their thoeries don't seem rediculous... *Coughs in such a way that the name "Stephen Hawking" can be heard, although none can claim that it was not a normal cough, as seen with the word "loser" in many movies and series*... No really, Hawking is a fraud. His only recognition comes through the pity-factor ("Oh, look. A retarded crippled guy who's also not very pretty! Oh, look. He's trying to think of something. Let's be supportive and make him feel respected!" ). If he hadn't discarded Bohr's theories, he would have realized that his Einstein-based innuendo is just that- innuendo. Ooops, rambling again...
Yes, the professor obviously invents a PORTAL between the universes .(besides, the difference between the universe we follow on a regular basis and the one our guys visit first is that cointosses turn out different, right? The other ones have differences also, but somehow ALL of the Farnsworths have invented the so-called "parellel universe".) Another explanation would be that ONE of the professors invent ALL of the universes INCLUDING different history, small differences, etc. And that is pretty impressive, though I stick to the portal theory...

It doesn't make sense for there to be an infinite number of universes already existing.
#1 (weak argument) they went to the edge of the universe and looked at the other universe.  this implies that the 2 universes are side by side, unless they just happen to connect at that point like how one country borders another at a small point.  If that were the case, they would be touching a lot of other universes, and i think of the rest of the crew that were there, one of them would know - despite the fact that they say they live in the universe but they never do these things. (hope that was a little clear)
#2 if there were an infinite number of parallel universes, one of them would contain a person so evil as to destroy all of the other universes
#3 you cant assume everything the professor says is false because he's senile and u cant assume everything bender says is false because he lies and u cant assume everything fry says is false because he's dumb.  if everyone told nothing but falsehoods, life would be near unliveable-in

I have never understood "Parallel" as a word describing things that are touching each other. That's just the point. They don't touch, and therefore you can't just visit them all (or destroy them) by just travelling over the edge. I am not saying that there are NO universes touching, coz there might be.

Which means that somewhere out there(in another universe which probably isnt paralell because people say they go on into infinity) there is a real Futurama situation with the exact same things happening like in the show!!!   WHICH MEANS,, Everything happens in any random universe, (including ours)  And every dream, thought, show, wish and so on is possible/ happens in another universe!!!!!!  omg did i think of that? Just think of it!  right now in another universe, i can bet 99.9999% shure that i typed 99.232323% instead! cool!  (Ow! not another hemmerage)  big grin   hmpf    big grin   hmpf

In the "real" universe, Amy is a reasonably intelligent person who happens to be clumbsy. She is, afterall, a student of Mars U. Maybe in the alternate universe shes a dropout who is very graceful.

Clearly thats the funniest thing ever and we should all have it tatooed to our chests. Then all comedy should be stopped because nothing can ever get any better than that.

Sorry to bump this thread, but at least it was still on the first page.  smile

This is pretty much true... parallel lines are lines that never intersect; I would assume the same definition holds true for universes, although they aren't one-dimensional. Still, you'd think different terminology would be used if someone was trying to convey the idea of universes that border one another.

The analogy is a bit tricky since parallel lines are 1 dimensional objects in 2 or more dimensional space wheras universes are 4D and are not contained in space at all. The word "parallel" is really being used differently here - multiple universes are running separate from each other at the same time (although using the word "time" gets a bit awkward when you're talking about different universes) a bit like in a computer with parallel processors, only not quite.

Also, the parallel universe in IDAR wasn't touching, there was a gap in between.

F is the 6th letter of the alphabet.
O is the 15th letter (1+5=6)
X is the 24th letter (2+4=6)

Hence, FOX = 666

we already covered most of this in another older  thread, but it occurs to me now that if the above were true, then both universes would have simultatiously come into being just in time to make each other...hmmm...maybe that too was already explained away...
