Soo..
What would you say is "OUTSIDE" the universe...
If you can explain WHAT the univers IS, then.

Future looks bright.


The future's uncertain and the end is always near.

Time to work on that bucket list.

Well, I personally believe that God is outside of the universe, but I don't think that's what you're asking.

In physical reality, the natural world, there is no "outside" of the universe, there is simply where the universe is and where the universe is not. Where the universe is is expanding, but where the universe is not is not shrinking. Sorry if that's confusing, I'm not sure how to explain it more clearly than that.

One more thing...
14 billion years into the existance of the Universe, so by now some parts of space-time would've already been eaten by this super density bubble #. No single evidence for that.
Bunch of old farts stealing days from the rest of their lives lol and have nothing better to do.

And as i said, SPECULATIONS...

You have NO idea really..
GOD...comon...

You cant calculate with numbers on a speculation PERIOD
cause thet would be TOTALY irrelivant...

With the amount of dark energy being significantly higher than dark matter and regular visible matter combined in this bubble of existence, plus the rate at which the universe is accelerating. I highly doubt that the big crunch will happen today or even in the near future. Hell i even doubt it'll happen at all. Like what other users stated is that the universe would most likely end in a big rip or a big freeze.
Around 75% of the universe has dark energy (force that is acelerating the universes expansion.)
Around 20% of the universe has dark matter (force that keeps the galaxies together and from flying apart and into the bulk other than gravity.)
Around 5% is regular visible matter (the stuff you can see.)

I'll answer
The multiverse, the bulk, the membranes that created our universe.

And more speculations...Irrelevant.

Theories based on speculations.
The numbers can go sideways if you like...

What speculation?

For pete's sakes, take a few minutes to educate yourself on some rudimentary physics and cosmology -- I gave you links to two very easy to comprehend articles on how we know that the universe is in a state of accelerated expansion, through observation, not speculation. The speculation/theorization is why that state exists, not whether it exists, because that is a known fact.

If you refuse to learn why we can say that, then you're just embracing ignorance and there is no point in participating in this discussion.

Exactly, also one of the previous posters said 'scientists know for a fact the universe is expanding', that's bull really as their 'facts' are facts ultimately based on guesses. Guesses based on guesses. We have whole theories and branches of science which are almost written in stone as fact, but are based on a guess..I.e the big bang.

Rudimentary physics.

What happens when a bomb goes of in a closed room?
Or even "outside"?!?

How fast does a snail go, on....?!?!?

If the universe collapsed into a fiery tennis ball right now, I don't think it would kill us... in fact, I don't think we'd even notice. Everything that exists now would still exist within that tennis ball, just on a different scale.
The only way someone could observe the collapse of the universe is if they exist outside of it. That's my take anyway.

It is good to see some wild theories coming out of physics. They need to look way outside the box.


Personally I just don't buy the whole big bang theory and the expanding universe. And I bet eventually both will be proven wrong.

Don't worry. The universe isn't going to collapse as long as I'm alive. The second I'm dead, however, you're on your own.

(Not really. You won't exist either.)

Relax everyone - it's a Daily Mail article.

This should be in the hoax bin.

Very cool. Yet another reason to love like there's no tomorrow - embrace life and all that we value. Be grateful. Enjoy. Don't take anything for granted.

The mind-bending concept has been around for a while, but now researchers in Denmark claim they have proven it is possible with mathematical equations.



Proven it is possible with mathematical equations....

I've heard it referred to as the big crunch. Opposite of the big bang. But it is probably billions of years from happening if it ever does. This is a case where I will say a theory is just that. And theoretical physics boarders on magic anyway. Abra Cadabra. I created as I speak. ( The magic words translated to English)

There is a postulation that the vacuum is just on the edge of stability, and if it goes unstable, we could literally have something akin to a new big bang inside our present universe, which would literally expand out at the speed of light and destroy everything in its path. So since its approaching you at the speed of light, the only warning you would get would be your own disintegration, it a nanosecond timescale. Probably quite painless, as you would cease to exist in less time than pain impulses could be created by the event.
