for those interrested in dimenions stacking/ the multiverse, this video does a good job of explaining it in laymans terms,

This was a great video. The presenter mentions the possibility of fundamental constants changing and cites the paper that proposed changes in alpha, but also acknowledges the challenges that study has faced. We won't know for sure if fundamental constants change until multiple research groups arrive at the same results, but it's a research question worth exploring.
As for the teleological argument/intelligent design: I think this really depends on your personal background and beliefs. It's difficult to accept as a science, because these theories do not conform to current scientific practices. There's nothing wrong in thinking about it as a possibility.
You're an atheist, but you're open to the possibility of multiverses and intelligent matter/energy. As a STEM graduate with a religious background I'm hesitant to accept creationism and intelligent design (or anything that involves intelligent matter and energy), but the theory of a God settings the universe in motion and letting it develop on its own through evolution and complex, non-linear biological/transport processes sounds appealing. Someone with a strong connection to faith/organized religion would more readily accept intelligent design.
I dont believe in intelligent design or creationism. I see the creation of the universe just in terms of mathematics/statistics, like its one among many others. Heard about the teleological arbument the first time here in the thread. But saw several documentaries and youtube videos, where ist was said that the universe is very fine-tuned, so that life can exist. For me, thats no prove of god or something, but real science. The theory of the multiverse is for me an alternative theory to creationism or intelligent design. The reasearch about finetunig is maybe a bit similar and also as complex as the research about dark matter/dark energy.
My belief in intelligent matter has nothing to do with that. Like i said, its another topic. I heard about a quantum experiment, where the particles could communicate with each other into the past or future, dont remember exactly. The other thing about intelligent matter is about the theory of everything. Gravity and quantum mechanics are both real, but they are not compatible. Thats why we need a theory of everything. Im not really into string theory and it doesnt sound credible for me.
I think the work of this research institute is quite interesting and they only need 8 dimensions for their theory of everything. The videos have a weird style but are pretty impressive. They say that everything is made of a geometric language

a nice, funny and jolly take on the notion that (a) universe might have been designed from the onset, rather then emerged

Ah, I see. I misunderstood your viewpoint.

You're probably thinking of quantum entanglement and the principle of retrocausality. Quantum entanglement has been explored for nearly a century, but retrocausality is fairly new.

Yes i think thats what i mean. The particles not only realize, when they are observed, but also communicate to each other the information of being observed or not. And that also through time. The experiment that i saw, was an advanced version of the double slit experiment. The researchers tried to trick out the particels, but it didnt work
