it's infinite and constantly expanding, we will never know about the edge
i meant the whole mass with the galaxies and stars are expanding in the void, in the black mass
i understand, the whole concept is too complicated and abstract to understand
i do and that makes my head explode
how do you imagine something as big in an indefinite location to be finite? of course i may not understand everything, i'm not a science major.
Both, the universe keeps expanding, but resources could be finite, because if the consumption rate is higher than the universe can expand, it's finite. Although it might never deplete because the universe renews it, but as long as it runs out it's finite.
In a way it's both, the resources will never deplete so that makes it infinite, yet if beings consume it faster than it is being produced in a way it is finite, yet infinite.
I meant natural resources, energy is infinite, unless beings somehow find a way to harvest that and consume it so rapidly that the universe can't produce energy quick enough.
Yes, thus they are finite. Yet the universe is infinite.
Not entirely true, do you know that scientifically, when humans create energy like ie electricity, you always get less than you put in.
Ah ok, then my science teacher was even dumber than I thought hahaha, good to know though.
Probably both lol.
It's so big that to me, it doesn't matter which it is.
I like to think of it as infinite.
I think it is generally understood that it is expanding and therefore has an edge, so it must be finite. I suspect when it runs out of energy it will contract and start all over. Like heart beating.
A better question might be is the space the universe is expanding into finite or infinite? I think infinite might the answer to that one.
It wouldn't be the same universe, it would be a new universe in the same space.
I don't know what that means, "the set of everything".
I believe it's finite..but what does a fish know about the land?
As infinite as my ever expanding mind. ;)
LoneAlpha: haha ;}
My thought processes are like super novas annihilating Mitochondria in the ever expanding void that is my mind. The planets are my synapses. The dark energy of folding time is the reason.
I said ever expaning void which is the space between celestial bodies.
I see your point and my counter point is nana nana boo boo. :p
I doubt there's an end. Can you imagine just hitting a massive void wall where you can't go any further?
It probably goes on and on, but the vast majority of it is just void. Nothing.
