I don't share that optimism.
You are ignoring the fact, that we live in an electromagnetic universe ... and we are still bound by that boundary, but knowing this boundary also
brings with it, the knowledge, that it is not a limit of the universe.
We're still fumbling around in this world, with Noha steering continents floating around, bouncing on a static iron ball. That in and by itself,
should be a clue of our short comings. We know the universe is 99% plasma, but we are still convinced that this planet was formed from something
else. Our favorite theory of the beginning of the Universe, is 1. Creationism, and 2. Big Bang ... you can roll the dice, on which is more popular.
But the only reason Big Bang is popular, is because more intelligent creationists, don't want to blatantly advertise themselves as idiots, and
therefore the theory of creation has been put in a new booklet, and called Genesis part II: Big Bang.
Now, maybe that makes you sleep well at night, Phage ... but Nasa finding this little baby is most likely because some amateur astronomer tipped them
off (as is the usual case), or they just got lucky ... like all the other "amateurs" out there.
