Well these other universes would probably be separate systems in a dimension called the multiverse, and so light from one ending up in another seems implausible. Unless they could interfere with each other like bubbles in a bath bumping into each other, but would we be able to notice when we get bumped in to? No idea.

It would be really interesting if our 'essence' or spirit, if we have such a thing, drifted off into space only to fall into another vessel sometime, potentially in another galaxy or even universe. Anyways, a multiverse, if proven (which it has not been as far as I am aware), doesn't imply that we have an afterlife.

They also believe with certainty that particles of matter appear out of nowhere. Where does superstition and fact begin and end!

Sometimes people that start to read in to quantum mechanics come to strange conclusions based on the things that an expert in the field has said. People also have a tendency to connect things to beliefs as if it were evidence. I know, I've done it before quite a bit. I use to believe something along the same lines too; reincarnation somewhere in the multiverse for eternity, but it's just wishful thinking.
