But seriously, no edge....
That does sum up my struggle with the whole concept, I accept it but dude, no edge.
I'm of the same opinion as John: it's interesting, but not as interesting as the deliciousness of chocolate chip Clif bars.
I'm curious to what he means. IE is there infinite matter in the universe?
I never really found the concept interesting.
The universe is infinitely and incomprehensibly big? Cool. Cool, cool, cool.
I guess there's just not that much to consider. By definition I can't comprehend it, but I guess I can imagine traveling without ever reaching anything that appears to be an end. Good enough for me.
What is interesting however is the idea that anybody can find Cliff Bars tasty. That is something I can comprehend, my never-ending hatred for Cliff Bars and their grossness.
I agree with you on the cliff bars point. They are disgusting.
as i said, to an extent in a comment on John's video, i can see both sides of this. i think many of us have pondered the infinite, or in some other way come upon things that, to us at least, are absolutely frakking AWESOME, but for whatever reason they just don't resonate for others, however enthusiastic we may be. and at times we're John, saying, 'yes that's interesting' but annoyed at how enthusiastic our brother's being about something among any number of shiny subjects...or at least Hank's attempts to make us enthusiastic when we just want to eat our food, or sleep, or improve ourselves...or at least our FIFA playing.
What's even more mind-blowing? The Universe is EXPANDING as well as simply being infinite. So, it's infinity that is growing.
see, i was trying to cleverly reference Hank's video, as he points out the same thing you did, but also says, we don't really know for sure, because the observable universe (which has no edge) isn't the whole universe, so we could be wrong about it not having an edge.
also anyone not seen this?
No no. I knew your reference. haha.
And, no! I hadn't seen the song. BUT! I WANT THE SHIRT!!!
