With the QM theory: no.
But Steven Weinberg has shown that if QM is slightly false (slightly
less linear, with the Schroedinger equation becoming an
approximation), then we can physically go in the other branch of the
quantum multiverse. But then thermodynamic, electromagnetism and
relativity become wrong, and this makes such reasoning into a reductio
ad absurdum of the idea that QM could be slightly false.
From a paper by Plaga, years ago, I convince myself that if QM is
slightly non linear, we could build infinitely solid and elastic
object, but then nothing could be moving in a relativistic universe.
The contraction of length would be blocked.
I am using the Hugh Everett the 3rd's conception of other worlds/
universes. I am, just as a thought, trying to negate the Quantum
Theory of Immortality, just to see if anyone can imagine how
crossing world lines, without death, might be possible. Or rather,
what it might look like?
The best we could do would be to construct artificial quantum brain,
according to an idea of Deutsch. This would allow us to be aware of
being in many universes at once, but we would still have to forget
what we see in each universe to re-fuse in one universe. Still we
could remember having seen different things, but being not able to
tell them precisely.
Basically the same already occurs with arithmetic (instead of quantum
mechanics), except that *a priori*, the realities does not evolve
linearly. Well, we can hope they do, if not, mechanism is wrong, or
current physics is wrong.
