here is something that i have conjured up a while ago and want to see what everyone thinks about it and how it can be true or false.....
To begin, let me say that a sphere of an infinite size would actually be a straight line. People would say that it would still be a sphere, which
could be true, but then let me explain further.
Take our earth as a Huge example. When we walk on the surface, dont you feel like your walking a straight line, besides the fact you have hills and
whatnot? The earth is so huge that we feel we are walking a straight line. If you were to take a ball, like a baseball and give it the gravity of
earth, you could walk around it many times in one step, becuase of the size of it.
Now imagine Jupiter being solid to a complete level. Imagine yourself walking on that planet with earths gravity. Do you think you would be walking
more of a straight line than you are here on earth? Now thats WAY bigger than our Mother Earth. Now lets use a different example. A Game... When you
play a game that you do a lot of outside fighting, or playing in, you are walking a straight line unless there are hills. In games, they actually use
a plane(not the aircraft...lol), which is a flat surface, as the ground. Would you actually be able to tell the difference if the ground was a very
huge sphere? no, not at all, you would still think that the ground is a plane not knowing that the Developers used Sphere Physics and gravity to make
the ground and Atmosphere for the game.
With all of that said, take a sphere of infinite size and imagine walking on it. straight line? Yes... Try to imagine what a sphere of that size would
look like(well, it can be almost impossible to, considering that it keeps growing and growing, as it is infinite.) eventually the sphere would turn
into a line...
And there you have it, my not very revised theory. it could use a little more explainations but my mind is already hurting from thinking about it at
2AM...... give me thoughts on this and tell me where i could be wrong, or right....
