Multi-verses: what are these, including our universe, expanding or sitting in?
Even if ours is the only verse, it has to be expanding in something. If there are multi-verses, they must be sitting in something, some space our plane. So what would it be?
I have read all of Stephen Hawkings books and sadly, I still have no concept of the multi-verse theory. String (M) Theory says that the entire universe may be on a single membrane or plane that is stretched. I suppose this would constitute the fabric of space-time as proposed by Einstein. The other "verses" would then be other membranes and it is believed that when they impact each other a Big Bang could occur and create another one. At least, that's how I understand it. As for what container this is all happening in...I have no idea. It brings us back to the question of "what is nothing?"
It seems almost irrelevant in the greater scheme of things, now that people are hoping that the Higgs particle will explain almost everything. I almost hope that they will find it...but I also wonder if what they find will answer their questions, or just frustrate them rocking their current paradigm, which is still shaking from the quantum theories that barely anyone truly grasps and understands. One day...hopefully before it no longer matters.

Most people I talk to have a concept of the universe as a fixed amount of space with some sort of boundary surrounding it. Some people believe God lives beyond this "boundary".Please explain why you believe there is a boundary, what it consists of, what is beyond this boundary, and why...

So this is what I was remembering having read. If we can't discuss what was considered 1998's biggest scientific breakthrough on the science forum, where does it belong? www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3077857 and just Google "accelerating universe" and you will see all the newest theory on the...

If our universe is expanding as a consequence of the Big Bang, what is it expanding into?If I could travel faster than the speed of light, what would I see as I approached the expanding edge of the universe? If the universe is "everything", then how can it expand into what we would...

Scientists of all stripes, but most specifically physicists (astrophysicists, theoretical physycists, and the ocassional metaphysicists) have posited that based on the perplexities and complexities of quantum mechanics, the possibility of not just one, but multiple universes...
