Can matter, energy, or information travel from one universe to another in a Level I Multiverse? That is, is there any communication between Hubble volumes in an eternal inflation-induced multiverse?

The answer is no by definition, since level 1 universes are separated by a cosmological horizon. If they weren't separated by a horizon they wouldn't be seperate level 1 universes.

It's a general feature of separate universes that they are causally disconnected. It's the fact of causal disconnection that makes us treat them as separate.

so according to this and what we know you're saying that it's not possible for any kind of matter,energy or information travel between any universes right? (i don't know why but i feel a little bit happy bout this) – user27494 Jul 26 '13 at 14:38
