I used to have nightmares about Infinity when I was about 8 years old. The notion of the ever expanding universe and how it never stops expanding,
Travel in one direction for a million light years and you won't reach the end. Then look above yourself or down through your feet and travel the exact
same distance without even breaching the inner limits.
It expands in every conceivable direction forever. My mind used to ponder this nearly every night until it would cause physical pain just trying to
make my mind go that little bit further back in time, to when maybe there was a beggining. The Big Bang theory does not satiate this line of thinking,
because to me, the nothingness was always here, and always will be. There may have been a Big Bang which created "Life" but as for it creating the
entire universe, no. The universe was already here and when the Big Bang went off, it was but a little spark in the greater context of it.
When I was 8 years old I had never heard of the Big Bang theory, but there was something inside me that just knew of the absolute infinite expansion
of the unviverse.
Now I realise that people who try to convince me otherwise are simply afraid of how minuscule we really are in the greater context of the universe.
They need to put limitations on it so their minds can comprehend it.
Supposing there is an ending to the universe, like a brick wall for example, then what is on the other side of it?
Thank you for reigniting my childhood nightmare.
