"Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return, and we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We're made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself."
- Carl Sagan
Maybe the universe was never created? What if it has been here forever already and will continue to exist forever into the future? Energy cannot be created or destroyed, meaning the universe (which is nothing but energy) could have never been created and can never be destroyed.
Since the universe is eternal, maybe the universe is this "greater being" that some call God? It's definitely greater than us and it is definitely beyond our comprehension. If that's the case, we are all part of God and have never been separate from "him" and never will be. What if we're in heaven right now? What if the universe is the Kingdom of God, the eternal realm of everlasting perfection? Everything is preserved, everything is perfectly fine tuned to harbor life, and it will always be that way.

There is something that will help you understand infinity...
your mind's eye.
What is the depth of your consciousness? If you never died, how far can you move things apart from one another in your mind's eye?
Where does the light of your mental images come from and by what will / spirit do you create the images with?
And what makes you think space is any different?
Also, science / math is the way we measure things in reality but it does not mean that is how they are. There could be things we are just unable to perceive which is the true measure of reality.edit on 2/11/2014 by Bleeeeep because: (no reason given)
