I have come to believe that the universe is actually contained with a tiny atomic particle. And that we are actually infinate universes.
But all those universes exist in one place, right? No matter how many times you divide a thing there is still just one thing to start with. In that light no matter how many universes you envision there are, they are only occurring in one wider universe.
If you stretch out your hand to the end of the Universe… your hand will not encounter a barrier out there. if it does, what is out side that is just more Universe. Your hand continues on forever. The Universe goes on forever. If it goes on forever it is infinitely big. If it is infinitely big then it has always been there. If it has always been there then it is eternal. If it is eternal then it is full of life, life has always been there, and life is everywhere.
If the Universe is therefore infinitely big and infinitely old then wherever you are is the center of everything. Everything stretches away from you in every direction making you the center of everything. Putting everything at the center of it all.
If we look ever smaller into subatomic space we see smaller and smaller particles and just like our telescopes look only so far into the cosmos, we can only resolve so far and so small. Beyond the resolution of our instruments the tiny becomes ever tinier making that realm infinitely small, going smaller forever.
Infinitely big, infinitely small, as above so below.
As above so below has a middle, that middle being you.

What is the universe and the smallest particle of matter in it - the superstring - were different manifestations of the same archetypal, mathematical pattern?
Want to see proof that this is so?
Visit this researcher's website and you will be amazed. In fact, it will take you beyond science-fiction and the latest unproved (and unprovable), crazy theories of physicists to reality itself. You see, the proof is in the mathematics.....

Good info on an old idea.
As was previously said, infinity appears to be a lot bigger than what you think it is
(Does infinity even have a "size" associated with it?)
On another interesting note -- the human body has about 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 atoms.
Maybe each atom above is a universe consisting of other uncountable atoms?
Wow! That is a lot of atoms and universes.
To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
however according to some of the ancient texts the universe is continually creating and destroying itself, meaning it dissolves and creates infinite universes at all times on a type of substratum of infinite consciousness.
Top Physicists Ponder on the Idea of Universe in an Atom
Dr. Sanjay Gupta, famous for his studies related to the theory of advanced quantum hydroponics. "It's like, one big atom? Forget about it, man. Even weirder is, like, if we're just one big atom in a larger universe, how do we know all the little atoms don't have, you know, little universes in them, with little people living on them, with little cars and little houses, and maybe even itsy-bitsy tiny[...] international symposiums on cutting-edge theoretical physics, even."

Also Michio Kaku when speaking on string theory talks about parallel universes overlaping each other. He also speaks of parallel versions of ourselves. Makes me think there are an infinate number of us out there or in here or. . . .You know out there!

Who knows if there really was a big bang, the universe could just been there in a few theories. They say they know the universes age by pointing an instrument tuned to a certain spectrum see the remnants of it , but maybe they can only see so much. Especially if the universe is still expanding, and if that expansion followed some similar pattern in nature, it would only be more mind stumping.
There are no universe in atoms, but there are atoms in the universe. Sure there the electric universe theory, but like that only makes so much or so little sense really.
