Wow..this really puts our place in the way if things into perspective.

I'm not saying I'm right, but I could so easily accuse you of thinking in a linear fashion. "To know you're living inside a box, you must first step outside of it".


"Does time really exist? Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity demonstrates that time is subjective to a person's own relative position. Physicists over the past century have long struggled to comprehend what time really is. In their quest for deeper theories of the universe, some researchers increasingly suspect that time is not a fundamental feature of nature, but rather an object of our own perception".

If reality is a computer simulation like quite a lot of pysicists believe, then time becomes irrelevant, because it's artificial and therefore doesn't really exist. Therefore the question we should be asking ourselves, is when did the simulation start?

Hi guys

Check this out: New 3-D Map of Universe Is Best One Yet

Pretty awesome aswell

[us.123rf.com...]that there might prove that no big bang created universe ..just few grains of sand... just some =527[/url]

Apple friendly please? Why? ITS FLASH!!!!
I can't see it, but I do know the scale quite well. It's not exactly infinite but not exactly finite either. It's limited in size but always expanding so in a way it's both infinite and finite. Only the universe could be something that weird.

I've studied it all my life, I can't stop looking up when the stars are out. People in my town think I'm strange and most of them aren't even aware what's up there (small redneck town) but when I look up, I get this feeling of nostalgia. Deju vu, but more intense I get these flashes when I look at certain places.

My mind must be over active because it shows me the type of sun, it's size. What orbits it. It's history. Just so many flashes but beautiful. But these flashes have always happened since I was a kid looking at the stars for the first time and the dreams i'd have were wonderful.

I remember this one these people took me into the sky (I was 5, no idea of the term alien, yet I still dreamed it) and they showed me the cosmos, but in the dream I got scared and wanted to go home, I couldn't understand the lesson the people in my dream were trying to teach but I wasn't just scared I would look out the window and see beauty. They said if I wanted to go home I could never come back until I was older. So now I'm older and I realize it was my sub conscience teaching me everything I already knew in some respects or overheard and just remembered it all.

So now I'm older and I'm realizing maybe when I'm forty there will be a time when regular people pole myself can journey in space or just go in it. I know what it feels like, I can endure that. Somehow my brain already knew what it felt like. When that day comes that I get to go in space (presumably with thousands and millions of other people) I will have completed something I have waited a long time for. Return home. Cosmos to me is home, earth is a corner in a sense. The shore of the cosmic ocean. The waters appear clam and ready for us to leave.

Time isn't linear, it just appears like that to us. It goes every which way, so your born, you take an infinite number of different directions and infinite number of universes.

But we cam agree on it's beauty true beauty, if god existed then that being is an artist who wants to share their work.

I envy the future of humanity. If reincarnation actually existed, I would love to comeback in the year 4500 CE. At some point in our future, humanity will be driven to do wondrous things. Imagine physically moving about our Milkyway Galaxy, and trying to find materials to build technologies for cross galactic travel.

~ First, we will discover propulsion systems that will allow us to travel throughout our own solar system.

~ Second, we will discover propulsion systems that will allow us to travel to other solar systems within our galaxy.

~ Fourth, we will discover propulsion systems that will allow us to travel to nearby galaxies, so we can visit solar systems within those galaxies.

~ Finally, we will discover propulsion systems that will allow us to travel to distant galaxies, so we can visit other solar systems throughout the entire universe.

Sometimes I wish immortality was real.

Great find man. Great find.

It really is amazing how large the universe is. We are less than specs in the universe

Interesting information and application,thanks OP.

I feel the same to be honest,i still feel insignificant lol.

Remember though alot of what we believe to be "facts" are actually theorys.

In short,we dont know stuff all.

Have fun.

Cheers

People do you realise that this is not an actual proper scale of objects, it seems more the order in which size is.

The actual scale would not be able to fit into a digital computer screen, they are not real scales for size but stage sizes.

I think the scale is so vast it is impossible to put it into a 2D format to understand it for what it really is so we have to use basic math of charts and this simulation is just that

The true scale might takes years to move with the mouse, not even the pixels are small enough.

I'm somewhat of a "simulation theory" fan, myself.

To answer your question as to when the simulation started though .... you'd need another linear time outside of this one, to measure it by, I think ...
