Does the Universe end or is it infinite?
I'm actually not going to provide any more context for this one. I want you guys to respond before providing any evidence that may sway the conversation. Have fun!
I'll attempt it. To use the famous Socrates quote: "All I know is that I know nothing." That is maybe the Universe is infinite, that is it is a circle which has its centre everywhere and it circumference nowhere. Maybe it last forever. Maybe it does not. Maybe it is all illusory anyway. Maybe there are infinite universes in dimensions beyond our ken.
The only certainty we are told is that everything changes. But what about the Observer, the Witness, the Experiencer of the changes. What observes the universe and can concoct such a question?
Dwell on that one for a while...
You already know my position on this one :-)
I can only say that, in my opinion, it is infinite because even if you could travel to the "end of the universe", what would be there?
An infinite spherical wall? with nothing on the other side of the wall?
Another complete and separate universe?
Total empty infinite space?
That crazy number 8 laying on its side?
LOL! Wouldn't we all like to know the answer to this question!
@Lela: haha, yep. Great discussion by the way.
I love this little smiley face cosmos photo! Yes, it was a great discussion.
Oh yeah I didn't see that before. It looks like some gravitational lensing is at play here.
I used to work with blood cells under a microscope. It's funny how many white blood cells of the segmented neutrophil line look like they are smiling!

That is, how much matter do you think there is? Do you think that the universe is finite or infinite? Is there never ending "stuff" or a finite amount that's surrounded by absolutely nothing. I don't know what...

Assuming there are other planets out there with civilsation at least as advanced as ours, what kinds of religions would they have there? Do you think they'd have had Jesus, Mohammed, Krishna and Buddha visit them also?...

Does the universe have an end?

Life depends on extremely narrow parameters, and couldn't have come into existence unless many specific, often unusual and rare, properties of physics and chemistry happened just the way they did, in just the right...

The argument usually goes:1. All that begins to exist has a cause.2. The universe began to exist.3. Therefore, the universe has a cause.4. If the universe has a cause, it must be timeless and...
