Wave function collapse into higher dimensions

Postby bcsessa » Thu Jan 03, 2013 12:56 am

If the superpositions of a wave function are not needed because only one of the superpositions is allowed, what happens to the eigenvalues of the "null" superpositions? And to follow the Copenhagen Interpretation, therefore disregarding the literal collapse, but rather thinking in terms of probability, what happens to the information associated with the null superpositions? Is the energy/information transferred elsewhere such as alternate universes, supporting theories such as higher dimensions and inflation theory? Could these collapses come from string harmonics, therefore determining our universe and the others plausibly around us?
