if the universe is expanding...what is it expanding into?
and for those who say "nothing" ...if that were true, then the universe wouldn't be moving. period.It would be stopped dead in its tracks. Limited by nothingness.
But if the universe is moving...its moving into "something" what that something is...we may never know.
great thread topic!
This is where you are wrong. The absolute nothingness is absolutely neutral, the finite universe we know is far from neutral. It is not neutral because the infinite nothingness is "absolutely neutral". A different way to look at it is; Anything that is within a absolute neutral space must be positive. In other words; anything within a absolute vacuum is always positive. Anything that is absolute is infinite.
Our universe "sphere" has greater pressure than a space that is absolutely neutral. A absolutely neutral space wont have any pressure. We know that pressure will always go in the direction of a space with less pressure. That is why our universe is expanding outwards.
