i wonder about the universe... sometimes i think "The universe is infinite" and then i think "No you idiot how could it possibly be infinite? it cant just go on forever" and then i think "you jackass if the universe isnt infinite then what is outside of the universe" and so on... so what do you think of it?

it's been proven that the universe is an infinitely expanding bubble... but time & space only exist inside the universe, so for our purposes it might as well be infinite

Well. The universe is supposed to be continuous in all directions in the three directional scale. (space) What we know as reality is the contiuation of space and time (the 4th dimension). What I find more interesting is what about a 5th dimension? Or a 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th and so on. Many scientists believe that there could be an endless number of dimensions.

i always thought of the 4th demenstion as being something unconcievable whereas the line cant concieve the square and the square cant concieve the cube... so forth...

No no no, we can move around in three dimensions (length, width, debth) we can observe and understand the fourth (time) but not move in it, beyond that is unknown.

just think our solar system is millions and billions of killometres in size we are the fifth biggest planet and are ridiculously smaller than first then you look at our galaxy and we are a tiny flash of light on one of the arms there are thousands of other solarsystems in our galaxy...bigger than ours....there are an infinite amount of galaxys it just makes you seem so small this may seem completely left wing but i thionk people with religions may have a =n eisier ability to handle believing this because they beleive in something they havnt seen.


catch my drift??

there is no emptiness, only anti matter and matter and a few other things. once thought the nucleus (spellling, i think, i hate that word) of an atom was empty, come to find out there are things revolving inside of them in a pattern.

I think that it is not for us to know, and once we discover what our minds are not able to comprehend, we will seal out fates.

I agree that the univese is infitely expanding, that has been proven with our current technology.

I agree that there is an infinite amount of dimension, actually there are many dimensions that have been theorized mathematically, but not proven physically. Dont ask me to name them, cuz that was a few years ago in chem.

The universe is infinite in that you cannot find any boundaries. This is because space is curved in on itself such that if you were to travel in a "straight" line in one dirction indefinitely through the universe, eventually you will end up right back where you started. It's like the universe is the perfect container to hold something in because there are no edges or boundaries to escape from.
