I like to tell high school kids this: If you travel at the speed of light, from your perspective, you are everywhere in the universe at once. Further, the light from a star 100 million light years away occupies every single point between the viewer and the star. And every point of light in that straight line is everywhere in the universe at once. And the light from that star is on an infinite number of “lines” in the sphere of light it gives off.

And God is light.

> our universe may actually be a closed loop <

Based on an exhaustive study of what’s in my cereal bowl, I believe that the universe is not one loop, but many multi-colored loops. I have already applied for a federal grant to investigate this further.

Looking more and more like we really live in a simulation.

The idea is not new. If you kept going, and going, there is no edge of the Universe to come to. So what happens? You don’t disappear. You eventually arrive at your starting point.

Sees odd that calculations that don’t come out as expected could trigger a complete revision of the theory of the Universe.

They don’t even know if the Universe is finite or infinite. Resolve that question and then you can move on to other important questions.

Probably more of a Mobius strip.

As a child, I tried to conceptualize a God before time, eternity, and a universe without end....not ashamed to say my head couldn’t grasp it....newer theories make my head spin faster than a neutron star...or even a black hole (if they still exist)....

We will never be able to conceptualize God until we become one with Him...............
