This sounds very much related to the idea of Parallel Universes.

But parallel universes theory doesn't dismiss the notion of time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_vpEyE6rug

Sounds very mystic and absurd to me :D But how would a layman know any better?

it seems to me that people are very much driven by the quest to find a theory of everything. the goal is fixed, they want to fit things into it...

looking at comments left by people, maybe laypeople, many of them seem frantic and excited by the prospect that all the crazy mystic things described in religious books can finally get the approval of science.
