when we look out to the cosmic microwave backround CMB we think this is all there is or can be, but what is outside that?
when we observe our universe from the inside we are neglecting the outside, what is it and how does it work?
in universe we see forces that pull and push and heat or chill we have plsama and matter, it all swirls around in a pattern seamingly random motion but strangly beacutiful at the same time.
does the outside of our universe have these same forces, same patterns and beauty?
could what we call "the universe" acually only be a smaller part of a larger structure?
one where the "universe" we know is a small part of a larger spiral, in a Giga Universe.
as spiral of "universal bubbles" in a larger formation.

we see matter acreating and attracting together in all directions,
why not on a larger scale
each "universe" is part of a giga universe that looks very similar to our sprial galaxies.
the name means universe canot be defined with an inside only out look

we are quite a ignorant species and you are probably right we start wit our known world, then go to the whole world, then solar system and a few bits beyond, then galaxies we have been massively wrong in our early guesses and now we have informed guesses. ill sign up to your theory

I like the thread, its a great thought. There is much to wonder when you think about space and beyond it. It could be similar to how we have so many different galaxies, except its different universes. I read a thread on here somewhere, saying there is a Galaxy found that is older than the Universe, so its possible that a Universe can collide with another universe like a Galaxy can with another Galaxy.

If its like this, then the question comes up "whats beyond all that, whats beyond the Universe, and all the others ones". There is no doubt that there is other life out there, whether its intellectual life and beings such as ourselves or just simple animals like we have here on Earth like Rabbits or Lions, or even bugs like we have such as Flies and Bee's.

There is just so many questions that come up, it just overwhelms you. We don't know what is out that, we don't know what kind of life is out there, how it is. How are the other species, are they similar to us? Are they more advanced, are we more advanced? Well they are more advanced seeing all the UFO's and stuff, but I've always wondered, if there is any race out there that is not as advanced as us. What if they're like...Cave men, or in the medieval age, or similar to us where we use gas for vehicles and such. What if there is similar life out there such as lions, or rabbits or bears and all that.

You can literally replace a dictionary filled with words, with questions. There is just so much to ask and so much to know, yet we know so little. If you compare all the information we have now to what we could know, there would be such a difference. We would only know 1 spec of sand on a beech, and every single spec of sand in the world is the info we will be able to obtain in the years and years to come. Its just so much to know.

haha sorry for getting carried away, there is so much to talk about, I went a little offtopic here, and was talking about "out of this world" species lol.

Its very interesting though, you gotta agree on that

But yeah, there just "has" to be mutli universes, instead of limited space. There is a theory that our space is like a bubble, and there is other universes like that. Makes you wonder how many there is. Dozens? Hundreds? Thousands? Millions? Billions? Trillions? Is there like a massive universe that holds mini universes? Just so many questions, and for now we can only stick to theories.

Very interesting topic though, sorry for getting carried away, I got interested.

Probably other dimensions, remember that we cannot see anything past the 3rd Dimension
We can only observe the shadows casted by 4 dimensional objects which are in 3 dimensions, the same way the shadow of a 3 dimensional object is casted in 2 dimensions.

Anything could be outside of our universe, there could be wall or a membrane at the edge of the universe.
Hell, it could be like those GTA games, you leave the sandbox and there is nothing but an infinite void of absolutely nothing. You could go in that same direction for an eternity and you will never reach the end because there is no end.

Infinite nothingness or other dimensions.
Your guess is as good as mine, anything could be outside of our universe.
For now I suggest we focus on getting out of our own solar system or even surviving.

Another note - If the universe is truly expanding at a rapid rate, would we even be able to catch up to the edge if we ever managed to break the light barrier?

Exactly, it could be endless possibilities. For all you know it could be like Men in Black, the movie.*Spoiler* At the end of the movie, our galaxy is in a marble type thing, and there is a large alien playing with them, and there is several other ones, and they're put in a bag and it could be like that except with a universe lol. Like the little dog said, such power like a Galaxy can be tiny, but once again anything is possible.

The galaxy in question isn't older than the universe, just older than should be for that formation and energy output - in other words its an out of period artifact. the reference was that there would be a disturbance in the cosmic background radiation, and they found 4 such areas that fit such a disturbance.

the idea of a multiverse is well-established in both theory and fiction.

It is quite possible more exist outside our universe, but as it is impossible to ever know whether anything does or does not exist outside of it, there is really not point in thinking about it.

We are touched, yet we feel not, for the hand that touches us is from beyond.

I think if you could see what is outside our Universe it would look like this.

Too many coincidences in the standard model for it not to be a 'set-up'.

The term for the concept you are mentioning is "Multiverse". The term "Giga" means billion, so the title you have given implies 1 billion Universes, which doesn't make sense it terms of the word "universe". "Uni" means one.

Maybe your term should be "Unigigaverse" (1 billion verses).
