It is hard to imagine that the universe is infinite. That you can get into a fast ship and start flying in one direction, and that you will fly
forever, and it will never end.
It can drive you mad thinking about it.
I read somewhere once that the human brain isn't advanced enough to be able to understand the concept of an infinite universe, so there is no point
in worrying yourself about it.
And I agree.
I forget what it is called, I am sure an atser knows, but instead of being infinite, the universe loops back on itself. IF you go far enough, you
eventually come back to where you started.
But of course the next line of thinking is: well then what is outside of that?
I worry about what we have to worry about for now, the solar system, and surrounding galaxies. Because that is all we can learn about for now.
I will leave the infinite universe for my greatX25 grandchild.
And hopefully they will invent time travel and they can come back and tell me about it.
Oh, I just thought of a new thread.
