not exactly. Most astronomers now believe that the universe is finite, just extremely huge by Earth standards.
we cant fathom this, we're like flies stuck in someone's window, not realizing that freedom is close by
I believe infinity is nothing more than a human construct. I think the universe and everything in it is finite.
Large beyond our imagination perhaps, but finite. Even time is finite. Forever is simply a way of saying a really, really long time.
I find it easy to imagine. Rather, I find it easy to ignore. There is no point in thinking about endless nothingness. Concentrate on what is here rather than what is not out there.
Hard to have intellectually stimulating conversation about eternal nothingness. It's a simple concept really, I don't get what trips you up about it. The universe having boundaries is much harder to fathom, because then what is on the other side? And what is beyond that? And what is beyond that? Infinity is real, the only question is whether the universe goes that far or something else does.
We are time critters with finite minds. Endless souls walking around in "earthsuits" and limited by our own brains.
At least that's how a minister put it one time when he was trying to explain how Heaven and Earth are in relation to us. I thought it was a cute way to put it.
well, it may be hard to imagine because everything we can sense is finite, everything we've ever known...but maybe reality is not how you imagine it is...maybe it is different from what you already know...maybe there are still things to learn...i'm sure there are.
It doesn't need boundaries, it just goes on, and on. There are other galaxies, and planetary systems out there, that we are yet to discover. And according to the Science Channel, they think they've found something new, but I didn't watch that special, so I can't comment on it.
That's why some people say time and space is relative.
