What is outside the universe?
I think a laboratory. We are a drop on a microscope slide.

It’s a great big universe
And we’re all really puny
We’re just tiny little specks

If the Universe is ALL THERE IS, and it’s ‘Expanding’, what is it ‘Expanding’ into?......................

Amen - also goes for what he spoke into existence.

our universe may actually be a closed loop instead of a vast, never-ending expanse.

if our space has non-trivial topology, then light rays will "wrap around" our universe multiple times and you'll be able to see the same (similar) copies of galaxies.

Climate change is a 5 sigma confidence interval - otherwise called settled science.

The universe could be a giant loo.

Maybe it’s more like an hour glass and we are on the matter side of the black hole with our universe filling up.

On the other side of the hourglass is the anti matter side that is also expanding to counter balance us.

It’s all a continuous flow of energy. Ever expanding, ever contracting...

I just read a Sci-Fi novel where Earth and another civilization in another universe were shifting matter between the two universes in order to have ‘unlimited’ ‘free’ energy........to a point.................

Everything and everyone is consciousness of varying frequencies.

Science is slowly figuring this out.

Kepler thought that the universe had spheres which made music as they moved—the “music of the spheres.” If he was alive today and was told that the universe was a closed loop, he’d be looking for “loopy tunes.”

The problem is that the people on earth belong to the “Flat Consciousness Society.”

When they finally figure this out, they will find that the physical body is merely a cocoon for the transformation of consciousness.

When Descarte said “Cogito, ergo sum... i.e. I think therefore I am” he forgot to identify the “I” that was doing the thinking.

When individual consciousness grows, it increases in frequency and expands beyond the physical body.

When it sheds the low frequency physical body it reaches frequencies that exceeds the speed of light and time collapses.

Time is not a function of the speed of light. It is a function of the frequency of consciousness divided by the speed of light.

Einstein missed this in his theory of relativity thus he used C squared creating an error in his equation unless you only apply it in a “ Flat Consciousness Society. “

All these cosmologists telling us what they think about the universe.

They should stick to selling makeup.

A loop that folds over on itself means a planet a hundred light years away could be a ‘5 hour drive away’...
