I see what your saying. Like an atom is it's own massive universe. Possibly with life and entities that contain smaller entities and essentially if
we were microscopic looking through a microscope it would continue going like a mirror in front of a mirror.
However the universe is supposed to encompass everything right? So say that our galaxy is simply a tiny flake in an ocean on a planet within a galaxy.
Well that's all part of The Universe which is all of it, everything to the smallest quark to the the biggest collection of galaxies containing more
galaxies that we don't even know about.
At least that's my understanding. So is our universe small? I don't know and I think I grasp what you are saying, I don't think anyone knows. It's
annoying when people answer these questions with a straight no, and then give some text book reference as an answer as if it applies.
