    If yo travel in a straight line, i have heard one theory suggesting that you would end up back where you started again. How is this possible? Does space "repeat" itself ?


    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.

    i suppose it could happen but only in a infinite circle and then it would be impossibl, hey look, i just contradicted my self, oh well, i say it's impossible except under the conditions of an infinite circle

    its thought that our universe is bent around in a 4D sphere, its like if you walk in a straight line on earth

    that's where my infinite circle comes in (kind'a) but if you can't walk in a straight line on earth because the velocity is constantly changing (direction)

    If you move in a straight line you won't end up anywhere, the milky way would have long ago sodded off and you would have rotted long ago -

    Myth busted! :-D :-D

    The idea was, if space was highly curved and you traveled in a straight line you'd eventually return to your starting location.

    Measurements have shown however, that space is very nearly flat and this shouldn't be possible.
