Omniverse is more than one universe.
In this physical cosmology context, the limitation of the definition of "universe" that it has only one set of "physical laws and constants that govern them," is expanded to include multiple sets of physical laws and constants, each expressed as a wholly or partially separate universe. The term is used in quantum mechanics to differentiate the concept of a limited number of universes from all existent universes.
Relationship of terms to omniverse.
Universe: The inside description of a context that is relative in size/structure (attributes/modes) to the known universe.
Multiverse: The part of infinity that directly joins a given universe with all possible configurations of that universe.
Omniverse: Infinity, all possible attributes and modes are in play, multiverses are categorized by the attributes/modes active in its child universes. All possible modes of existence are actualized.
Zionverse= anything beyond the omniverse.
Allegorical illustrations of the concept of Omniverse.
One can think of the omniverse as a tree structure: the omniverse is the trunk, each multiverse is a branch, and each universe is a secondary branch.
Alternatively, the omniverse can be illustrated as a forest, a multiverse is a tree in the forest, a universe as a branch on that tree, and all further branches are further subset horizons within that universe.
Physicists such as Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose have suggested that universes both fork and combine, which could be visualized as more of a system of roads and pathways.
Omniverse: End of infinity.
In some views, the number of omniverse subsets possible is finite. Given that omniverse is the largest set conceptualized by man, such a view is sometimes called "the end of infinity." From this frame of reference, it is possible that even if each multiverse had completely different physics, and the amount of possibilities went off in the most unlikely directions, there would be a limit and an end to the amount of possibilities.
This view is founded in a theory of the omniverse splintering into: universe, multiverse, many-worlds interpretation, M-theory, Parallel universe, Possible worlds and so on. Etymologically, the term "universe" is meant to refer to the entirety of one reality. Omni- is a prefix meaning "all", making the omniverse encompass all possible universes, unlike the multiverse that can encompass any two or more universes with the same set of laws and constants.
Theory of an Omniverse.
One of the theories of the omniverse is that universes are scattered around in it, such as galaxies are scattered in universes. However, there is no reason to think that the concept of space even applies at the level of the omniverse.
History of Omniverse.
The term "omniverse" is believed to have been created by Mark Gruenwald, and has been popularized by the composer-writer Sun Ra. The term has recently been used in a verse within the children-aimed song "One everything" by music group They Might Be Giants in their album Here Come the 123s. The verse states:
"Omniverse" appears on the album from Niyorah, a reggae artist, called A different Age. The song is A Perfect Timing. He sings:
The name Omniverse was used for an early-1980s semi-professional comic book fan magazine which explored the ramifications of the DC Comics and Marvel Comics combined Multiverses (see DC Multiverse, Marvel Multiverse). It was also seen in Image Comics as a level of reality that encompasses all multiverses which was visited a group of heroes from their fracturing respective universe during their battle with Entropy.
