View Full Version : Is the Universe infinite or not?

ok do you think the universe is infinite or not i myself believe that not the universe is infinite but the space the multiverses span i believe that at the end of our universe is another universe that is the same but there was a different choice made somewhere along the lines no matter how small the decision there is another universe that chose that so with all the choices made during one hour all around the universe the multiverses would be expanding constantly

I have many thoughts about this eternity, but two of the ones I dwell most by, is:

1 the universe is expanding constantly (but which material is it expanding upon? nothingness?)

2 the universe is eternal but correlated somehow so that the beginning is the begining of the end, we are somehow coming back to the start at one point.

Well use that to your benefit, you seen things and felt atmospheres that were surrealistic to some extent.
It has helped to create your personality as we see it today.

When I was younger, I always asked myself just what the universe IS.....

I came up with a theory that all the planets and suns etc... are to something bigger as atoms are to us. This means the universe is just a small part of something bigger. Unfortunately there's no way to prove or disprove this.

I don't know what the universe is, I don't know what it's made out of or why, or if there could be something totally different further up, at a different level, or farther away. It's completely unfathomable. Too bad the limits of mans mind is only to expand upon knowledge we know and fit it to known patterns instead of totally creating something new and different in idea. All ideas we know now have evolved from one basic idea, just like people have evolved from one basic form of life. So maybe the universe evolves too.......

one of my old friends once said that our universe is just a science project sitting in some supreme beings closet never to be touched again

Haha! That was a funny one... :)

NordicPower, I really agree with you. Our minds are simply too limited to understand the universe. We're even too limited to understand ourselves! Someone once said that "if our brain was so simple that we could understand it, we'd be too stupid to understand it anyway...." ;) The thing is that we're unable to imagine something that's different than what we already know. Let's say the universe is infinite. Humans have a really hard time grasping that, because we cannot grasp infinity. In our minds, everything HAS TO have an end. But does it? Have to have an end, I mean. Just because we cannot imagine it, doesn't mean it isn't so.
