Before we jump into your role here at Infinity, it is important to understand the Foundation itself. Knowing our vision, mission, and personnel, as well as a basic understanding of quantum mechanics, are essential to truly appreciate the importance of the work done here.
Imagine a world without disease; without war or famine. A world where resources are unlimited and abundant. This is not an impossible utopian dream. Through the use of patented technology, the Infinity Foundation has the power to make this our reality.
The Infinity Foundation is a worldwide multinational institute, created to explore the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, by bringing together some of the greatest minds from around the globe. The many-worlds theory implies that all possible alternative histories and futures are real, each represented by a universe all its own. In lay terms, any combination of past, present, or future events can exist simultaneously in their own separate timeline. There are even universes very different from our own, where the laws of physics work differently. These alternate world have their own parallel pasts, presents, and futures as well. The multiverse is vast beyond comprehension, and there is no telling what might exist out there. Gathering knowledge is the key mission of the personnel at Infinity to help better our world.

Dr. Etienne Laurent, Director of Mathematics.
Dr. Etienne Laurent is the Director of the Infinity Foundation’s Mathematics department, whose main function is to identify parallel universes via quantum mathematical formulae. A former mathematics professor at Oxford, and head of their mathematics department for more than two decades, he is an invaluable member of the Infinity team.
Nikolai Konstantin, Chief Engineer.
Nikolai Konstantin is Infinity’s Chief Engineer and architect of the Drill and Ayres Gate, the machines that make traversing worlds possible. Having helped design CERN’s Hadron Collider, he brings an eye for detail and a keen understanding of quantum edge technologies that have been crucial to the success of the Foundation.
In Memoriam, Jackson Ayres.
Jackson Ayres gave his life to the pursuits of the Foundation. Though he died tragically in a car accident, Jackson was responsible for discovering that certain individuals could interact with matter from other worlds. This revelation was critical to the success of the Foundation. His spirit lives on in the hearts and minds of everyone he worked with. To honor him the quantum tunneling machinery which he was working on bears his name.
The Science Behind Infinity
Quantum mechanics is the study of subatomic particles and how they interact with energy. Waves of light and particles exhibit a dual nature at this scale, acting like each other in many instances. For many years, physicists believed that the act of observing these interactions played a role in affecting their outcome. Quantum mechanics also provides a substantially useful framework for many features of the periodic table of elements, including the behavior of atoms during chemical bonding, and has played a significant role in the development of many modern technologies.
Many-Worlds Interpretation (MWI)
In 1957, Hugh Everett formulated the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, which states that the act of observing does not have an affect on the final value. Instead, all possible states of subatomic particles exist simultaneously, each occurring within their own universe. The act of observing doesn’t change the outcome, it merely lets us find the state of the wave or particle in our current universe.
For the many-worlds interpretation, it is held that all possible outcomes occur, branching off along their own worlds as choices are made. These worlds might contain major differences (such as a world where the Nazis won WWII) or might be incredibly simplistic (you woke up on the right side of the bed instead of the left). If it is possible, then is must exist somewhere among the multiverse.
The many-worlds theory serves as the cornerstone of the Foundation’s research. There are a number of quantum mechanics experiments, both practical and theoretical, that occur within the halls of Infinity every day. In order to help you understand the various quantum energies that affect the multiverse, we have highlighted some of the key experiments that explain how the many-world interpretation works.
Schrödinger proposed a thought experiment where in a cat was placed in a box along with a device that had a 50% chance of killing it once the experiment began. Without observation, the cat could be said to be both dead and alive at the same time. However, in the many-worlds interpretation, both alive and dead states of the cat persist after the box is opened, but are decoherent from each other. When the box is opened, the observer and the possibly-dead cat split into a universe where the observer is looking at a box with a dead cat, and one in which the observer is looking at a box with a live cat. Since the dead and alive states are decoherent, there is no effective communication or interaction between them.
Quantum Suicide is a variation of the Schrödinger’s cat thought experiment, from the cat’s point of view. The Quantum Suicide thought experiment involves a life-terminating device which has a 50% probability of killing the experimenter each time it used. Thought of like the branches of a tree, the left branch leads to death and the right branch leaves the experimenter alive. Since the probability of death is always 50% for each iteration of the machine, there must necessarily be a branch that always leads to the right, where the experimenter is immortal within the confines of the experiment.
An important facet of quantum mechanics that is the focus of the Infinity Foundation’s research is Quantum Tunnelling. The process of Quantum Tunneling cannot generally be directly perceived, but much of its understanding is shaped by the macroscopic world, which classical mechanics cannot adequately explain. Imagine a trying to throw a ball over a hill. Classical mechanics predicts that a ball without sufficient energy to surmount the hill would roll back down. If this was applied on the quantum mechanics scale, particles can, with a very small probability, tunnel to the other side of the hill by borrowing energy from their surroundings. Making this work on a larger scale has been the focus of the Infinity Foundation.
The Drill and the Ayres Gate
A year ago, the Infinity Foundation found a way to use Quantum Tunneling at the macro level, building a machine capable of grabbing hold of larger collections of matter and shifting them between universes. Known simply as The Drill, it could make complex matter tunnel through the barriers that separated the parallel universes. The results were imperfect, however. The first experiment successfully managed to pull matter in from another universe by mathematically fixating on a specific point, but it appeared hazy to the human eye and was immaterial to the touch. Whether by accident or providence, it was discovered that one of the engineering technicians, Jackson Ayres, could physically interact with this other worldly matter when he went in to make some adjustments on The Drill. With the discovery that certain people could interact with the Quantum Tunneling effect, a new machine was created, called the Ayres Gate, in honor of the first individual to interact with matter outside our universe, with the goal of sending living matter into other worlds.
p. Dr. Malik Hellbram was brought into the Foundation and began working to unravel why it was that Jackson Ayres was able to interact with the matter brought in by The Drill where no one else who tried could. He discovered a genetic mutation in Ayres’ DNA that he referred to as the Quantum-Gene, or Q-Gene for short. This genetic marker enabled certain individuals to resonate on a quantum level with the multiverse as a whole. Exceedingly rare, the Foundation immediately set about trying to find other individuals who contained this same mutation. Sadly, Jackson Ayres died in a car accident before any truly earth shattering revelations could be obtained, having passed before the Ayres Gate was completed. Now the Infinity Foundation has need of individuals such as who posses the Q-Gene, to travel the multiverse and bring back the knowledges and experiences to send mankind to its next stage of evolution.
