The multiverse: Our universe is suspiciously unlikely to exist—unless it is one of many, says physicist

It's easy to envisage other universes, governed by slightly different laws of physics, in which no intelligent life, nor indeed any kind of organized complex systems, could arise. Should we therefore be surprised that a universe ...
