Since physicist Hideki Yukawa was somewhat influenced by Oriental and Buddhist philosophy, he had some ideas about the complementarity of opposite things. In fact, when Niels Bohr published his concept of Complementarity (which could be classified as a paraconsistent system of thought), he wrote a letter to his fellow European physicists saying that this principle was evident to Asian and Buddhist people who was not corrupted by Aristotle.

But how much did Buddhism influence his ideas?

For example, as far as I know, Buddhism believes in the existence of multiple universes, but I have not found anything indicating that Yukawa proposed or believed in some kind of multiverse.

So, did Yukawa believe in all Buddhism philosophy? Did he believe in the existence of some kind of multiverse?
