I don't think there is any evidence that the probability plot of an electron extends outside of the Universe. Or any particle for that matter.

This is a huge subject!!! The multiverse concept I suggested was one based on our known universe being "closed" - finite but unbounded. The latest research indicates this may not fit with measurements. But who knows. The quantum mechanical concept of a multiverse is not the same as this (well nobody has suggested it is as far as I know), but to do with parallel coexistances of an infinite set of universes based on the outcome of quantum events - like one universe where a cat has died and another where it hasn't. If you are going to get into string theory without the maths, I don't think it is possible to get very far at all. I'm afraid the maths is too hard for me too :-) There is a definite limit to understanding these subjects by association with things within our everyday experience. The brain never evolved to cope with anything more than 3D space and what we would expect macroscopic objects to behave like. At a certain point you need very advanced mathematics and hope that the resulting patterns in the equations give inspiration and insight. Perhaps this is a depressing view but experience suggests this to be so.
