    If we are part of a multiverse then how can our universe be infinite in size and shape? Or how can something be infinitely straight or curved, flat or round? I’m imagining a collection of universes like soap bubbles in the dishwater, to me they’re finite shapes, is there a different way to look at them?


    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    I try to imagine an infinite ocean of water. There is still twice as much Hydrogen as Oxygen.

    Does that mean there is 2x infinity of Hydrogen?? Or is it 1/2 infinity of Oxygen?


    But something to remember is: even if the universe is infinite, the area of it that you can experience is still finite. No matter how fast you travel, even if it's faster than light, a finite amount of time will have elapsed since you started your journey.

    Consequently, you can only experience a finite amount of space. Does it really matter what lies beyond that?
