The universe is always growing......
But where is it going

I think when someone answers that question correctly a cosmic gong will sound, a giant You've Won! and Game Over will be seen across the heavens and the end will have come. Lets not work too hard on answering that!



Seriously speaking....I admit to spending more than one night camping and losing myself to the night sky above while thinking about things like that. Perhaps some questions literally are beyond our human ability to grasp, let alone answer. Hmmm....

On the other hand, when the ambien runs out for someone, here is Plan B to get to sleep. Ponder long and hard.

How long is a piece of string
Space is infinite and will go on for eternity
Unless it recoils like a giant spring one day

If you where a single spherical, expanding observer, at the instance of infinite expanse, the "other side" is the one infinitely kinetic, infinitesimal singularity. Vise versa likewise.

why would the universe grow outwards indefinitely while nothing else in the universe exhibits a similar growth behavior?

why doesn't the solar system grow outwards indefinitely?

why don't galaxies?

why would the universe?

people begin from a small point, grow outwards in a predictable manner and then collapse back upon themselves.

its a contained space where the beginning and the ending are one and the same.

Gosh It looks like you do not need help with this.
You have answered your own question.

The Universe is not expanding. Space, as a "material", is a kinetic, stable infinite structure. Contents within infinite space may be expanding, or contracting, or neither. The contents of infinite space are a byproduct, not the reason for space itself to exist. Space cannot change, never began, cannot end. How boring. "Let there be finite and those finites provide consciousness of discovery, newness, nothingness."

but my one question i have for all the highly trained astrophysicists that I know frequent this site is why would anyone assume a growth model for the universe as a whole that is unlike the growth model that can be applied to things easily observable and measurable and that are contained within the very same universe?

its sort of like human populations and the life cycle for businesses...they expand and contract around a core...the core being both source and destination.

when the core ceases to exists, the object being measured ceases to exists.

the belief in an infinitely expanding universe with a source different from a core almost seems to suggest that nothing exists at all.

I think I am starting to like the way you WARM rather than ignite one way or the other, Admirable. But again you just answered your own question from the opposite direction. WTFljb

i don't want to answer my own questions.

i want someone to attempt to tell me what''s up concerning all things.

preferably in short sentences.

its like the bible...how could the Word of God be contained within a finite object without the object being infinitely deep?

its almost as if it is common knowledge that such an object is a bottomless pit.

Dude or dudett.
In per K they explain that washing your hands after a visit to the potty room
will make you a better person.
Do you have a problem with that??

Ok, then my question is this: If it is a contained space, then where is that contained space contained?
