I was wondering about this, and I wanted to know everyones thought on the idea.
You know, there have been efforts underway for years, trying to find a unifying theory of the universe, that meshes all those conflicting
"mini-theories". My idea was, what if there is no such thing? What if, for every level we go deeper, another level appears?
See: For example:
*First there were objects that we could see, feel, smell, etc.
*Someone said, what if ALL objects are made up of 4 substances: air, water, fire and earth.
*Next, someone said, what if all substances are made up of tiny indivisible particles called molecules.
*Next, someone said, what if these molecules are made up of combinations of tiny indivisible atoms
See, for every level we go down, there is another level beneath us. If we can suppose that time can be infinite, and space can be infinite, why can't
science be infinite? It's perfectly logical.
Every single "level" is the resulting cause of a lower level. Assuming that nothing can come from nothing, and everything must have a cause, this
would go on forever. The job of us, as humans, would be to continue searching on and on, uncovering each new layer.
