Nirvana, mode d'emploi. (Et oui, j'adoooore quand de braves chercheurs cherchent dans des directions qui ont l'air de pointer là où l'un de mes textes préférés à moi que j'ai pointais…)
Parallel universes – worlds where the dinosaur-killing asteroid never hit, or where Australia was colonised by the Portuguese – are a staple of science fiction. But are they real? In a radical paper published…
