Pretty much, it means whatever the science fiction author who's using it
wants it to mean.

If you write "parallel universes" in a google search field you will get a
lot to read. The first hit is this and it's not sci-fi...

Then it basically means what ever the physicist means.

Generally in a universe in dimensions not reachable from ours. i.e. take a
