DAMNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

Crap, I never manage to edit my posts before someone manages to read the crap they were before I edited them. Or something.

Btw: Can we keep the [img]s "worksafe" or at least use spoiler tags?

Quetch, you probably want to check this site out;

http://www.nikon.co.jp/main/eng/feel...y/universcale/

If you think you feel small at the moment, that site will blow your mind


Seriously, I think its actualy impossible for us humans to comprehend the vasteness of these scales.

(about the flash site) It's nice to have it all layed on a scale like this.

I wonder if the universe as we know it (as far as it is currently expanded) is actually "all space". Maybe it's all just a particle in an a particle of a bigger contraction. Or maybe it is "all space", but it's still part of a bigger constraction that goes beyond the concept of space.

I think we should stop speculating here we all know where this thread is going next thing we know, we'll hear : what if the empty space between planets, stars, asteroids, etc. is in fact like a dummy sector on a CD ?

Well, the universe is be definition everything, any statement or concept or shape, size, or "outside" would be a paradox.

Personaly, I look at things the other way around.
I see the universe as everything that is, can be, will be, could be ect.

I dont mean the sci-fi concept of other realitys and such, I mean simply the universe is a volume that stores everything.
What we define as ourselfs, our consciousness, is like a small partical drifting though the possibilitys.

What we observe is just one small region in the universe.
Outside that "region" the rules as we understand them do not apply.

well, that's why I implied, wasn't it.

our "universe" isn't everything, in pretty much all explanations there is something beside the universe.

What "other way around"? You didn't contradict me at all.

By "the universe as we know it" I meant the universe as far as we know it. Like that flash site represents. In other words I meant "the result of the big bang".

We agree, it's just our vocabulary that is a bit different

There's the multiverse too.

It turns out that the balance between the forces that create our universe is a number so precise, that the only way it could happen - as a result of a "big bang" would be for it to be architected by "someone" so that's where the multiverse theory steps in, that sais that with an unlimited amount of different universes, the uncaning balance of forces in our universe becomes quite possible.

No. The Multiversum is a sum of all possible universes.
