I guess you could drive yourself slightly mad thinking about what the universe is expanding into if the universe is the only thing that is there.

I guess you have to decide whether you think nothing is something.

since it is the actual SPACE that is expanding (stretching, etc) then there is no space that it expands into. it doesn't expand into anything.

exciting, huh?

my theory is..
the universe will continue to expand until it hits the outside wall and bounces back towards us.

people who use P.S are just showing they havent put enough thought into their writing before they started.

P.S cant get out of the habit myself

there is a theory that goes like that. what is it called...?? that the universe could have many "lives" and it explodes, goes, out, contracts, crunches, & starts all over again. it all depends on stuff we don't know about omega, which is a variable for...i forget what...and the cosmological constant and some other yadayada (twirls hand around). but it is possible.

as you can see i forget details.

OMFG Maxx....that was SO freaking funny!!! 'The spare bedroom'...I'm still laughing my ass off!! That remark's going to be with me for weeks and I'm going to be walking around in public laughing for what seems no reason.

If I get stuffed into a sanitarium for it, I'll mail you a "Wish you were here" postcard

Really? Wow.

oscillatory universe, that's what i was trying to think of.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscillatory_universe

and it doesn't fit current measurements really, but they talk about it in string theory too, when they get into branes....something about branes touching cause a big bang, etc...or something. i don't know anything about that though.

Osculatory? It kisses itself? I suppose it has to, if there aren't any other friendly universes about.

You answer that, I think there is a noble prize in your future. I am going with the "Horton Hear a Who" concept, makes as much sense as some of the drivel Noble Prize winners have been spouting.

I just can't think about it - ideas of time and space are too huge for my little brain. I remember lying in bed as a small child of around 6, trying to grasp the idea of infinity - it kept me awake nights.

I'll stick with the idea of the spare bedroom!!!!
