Player: viriol Subject: beyond existence...
|What would you find if you could get to the limit of the Universe?||-|

|Aren't we on a parallel to Columbus and "friends" with the discovery that the earth was round? As space journeys are made, all of our conjecture as to "what exists" beyond? will become clearer, and likely will it not be another dimension, of sorts? What kind of other dimension? our mind is not now capable of understanding, and further development of the human mind will come first. Just someting for me to think about!||-|

Sorry, aparently, he's also known as Ferdinand Magelland - I didn't know...

|Hmmm... interesting question. I think at the edge of the Universe you will find the remains of the Big Bang, the very beginning of the Universe. If we could get there we could calculate how the universe expanded and maybe explain how the universe was created. Beyond that limit time and space doesn't exist. That means no matter, no light, nada. But maybe there are more universes, and the one we live in is just one of it's variations. This theory is called the strong antropical principle. The strong antropical principle says that there are lots of different universes, each with their own laws of nature. The universe we live in is just one of the possible variations that was created (by God?).||-|

|there is nothing at the end of the universe b/c at the end of the universe is the end of existance and the end of existance means nothing can exist or be...this is for at the end of the universe as a whole and not seperate universes as described by "viriol"|
...This is just my opinion... How can there be something were there isn't anything at all? Think about that one and that would answer a lot of 's

I actually wathed that Episode of Futurama ages ago, So yeah They reach the End of the Universe but cannot go any further and They saw their own counterparts on the "other" Universe.
Has anyone watched the movie "The One" starring Jet Li, the movie included the theory that Yenman said which is strong antropical principle.

|If i can go outer space and travel beyond the limits, I think we would find a universe similiar to us with sun... earth and other planets||-|

|see wots on the other side. I'm thinking the best food you've evr tasted, the most gorgeus, intellectual women, planets with meadows and streams and no pollution, it would be engolfed in light as opposed to our universes darkness and their light bulbs would emit darkness so you could sleep when you were tired||-|

|Maybe when you get to the end of the Universe, you end up on the other side? Like the 3-D surface of a hypersphere (or maybe some other 4-D shape?).|
Just like on earth, if you keep going straight, instead of reaching an edge, you end up on the other side.
|16 Yenman||2007-01-05 15:40:09|
|@ trashcan: yes, I've heard about that theory, very interesting. I just can't remember how that theory is called. I'll look for it. Well, we all can be scientist, can't we? There's a thin line between fantasy and science about this subject.||-|

|Could it be possible that the universe has no end?||-|

|When you get to the end, you're at the beginning.||-|
|19 jonny__b||2007-01-15 04:25:15|
|according to the big bang theory I think you would get to the edge of the universe and you'd just hit an invisible blockage as we are actually inside an expanding sphere so is like a bacteria reaching the edge ofthe inside of a globe, it just wouldn't be able to get any further although the scale is obviously different.||-|

|If you did get to the end, and you were aware of something beyond it, then you wouldn't be at the end anyway.||-|

|Ishamael that is like saying if you get to the edge of france and you are aware of something beyond it that you are still in france. Of course you could well be in luxemburg||-|

I deleted some of the older messages, but left the good ones in place.
I am into this kind of thing and one of the theories is that the universe creates itself as it expands. In other words, the \'edge of the universe\' does not exist and will never exist as long as the universe continues to expand.
Older theories said it would start to slow down and then start contracting.
Boy! Were they WRONG!
The universe is increasing the speed at which it expands. I am positive that we know very little about this subject, but I invite you to post your ideas.

|Scientists have already proved that the universe is infinite. They did that by drawing a triangle between two stars which they know the distance between them and the earth. The sum of the angles are exactly 360 degrees, so the universe is not bent. That means the universe is infinite. I saw that in a Discovery documentary. You can\'t draw a big triangle on the earth\'s surface without bending the lines somewhat because the earth is round. The next big challenge is to explain why the universe is expanding at an ever increasing rate. Apparently some form of dark energy is pulling the universe apart.||-|

|Our general relativity spokesperson is pretending he's been beamed up, but if the limit of the universe is where there's absolutely no more little bits of stuff left, then presumably what you'd find is what's in my vacuum flask here on earth?||-|

|viriol lost his password but sends his reply to the last post:|
A bit confusing but, if I understand this statement correctly, that is not entirely true. The Universe (at least in the sense we usually understand it in Cosmology*) includes not only all the matter that exists but also spacetime itself. So this "limit" of the Universe would still be quite different from "vacuum"** here on Earth as there is a notion of space and time everywhere on Earth. Then again, exactly what one means by things becomes tricky to pin down in these scenarios.
*You may also use the word "Universe" to refer to the portion of this which is causally connected to you, i.e. the portion of the Universe which is close enough for any point of it to have communicated with you (through light signals) since the beginning of time. That "limit" is usually called the "cosmological horizon".
**In a sense, what we call "vacuum" on Earth is actually not empty at all, but constantly teeming with short-lived particles which make it have energy and pressure. I don't think this would be the case in this "limit" of the Universe either.
