Observations point towards flat and thus infinite universe. This does not sit well with me, because if the universe is infinite, then it had to be
infinite even at the moment of big bang. Sure, space can expand, but I cant see how it would expand from finite to infinite shape. Then how did space
began to exist, infinite and all at once?
String theory posits the existence of six or seven compact dimensions with very small radii. It makes sense that our familiar three dimensions started
the same way and then were stretched by inflation, yet again I cant see how could this ultimately change their circular topology, no matter how much
are they expanded.
There is still a possibility of a round universe because the measurement of curvature is not precise enough to exclude it completely, it only has to
have a high enough radius. Thats what I choose to believe, mainly because thinking about an infinite universe makes my head hurt..
