The center of the Universe

Have you ever considered where the center of an infinite line is? Here, lets draw a line that goes on forever in either direction. Now lets place a finger on the line, do you know where the center of that line is? Okay for those of you who are following or are confused let's take this a little further. With one point picked out lets pick another. Do we now have two centers? How about three, four or five? Really? While these are not true centers, on an infinite line or in an infinite plane the center is any point that you choose. Capernicum therorized that the Earth was not the center of the Solar System, and Galileo followed up that theory. The truth about the Universe and if the Universe has a beginning or has always existed is just a hunch or theory on anyone's part. We should treat all theories about the Universe as simple speculation while we look for proof of our hypothesis'. What we can say based on what we already know is that we have not found a border to the Universe so it is possible that the Universe is infinite and therefore certain principles will apply. What are your thoughts on Universal and infinite laws? Do you think the Universe could have been created? What is and has been and ever will be, I think the Universe and all matter in the Universe has always existed while much of the matter is in a constant state of flux. Our solar system could have been created with a Big Bang, but not the Universe. I know we have been brainwashed to think differently, but really, what do you think?

The universe is in fact not a materialistic one . When you look at the atom or quantum level there is only energy that exist. The universe is indeed holographic in nature.. stating that the "one" exist in many ....everything and all things in the universe are connected through the quantum field (matrix). Everything moves in cycles.. as is the ever expanding universe...at the end of a cosmic cycle (100 years of Brahma) it will be annilhilated and return to it's primordial state..where it will be silent for another cosmic night (100 years of Brahma)

I thank you for sharing your opinion, I believe the Universe is static, meaning that it is not expanding or changing in size smaller or larger. I believe the universe is stationary and immense very immense, so immense that there is no border, so vast there is no boundary. I also believe the Universe always existed and everything in the universe is in motion and constantly changing. Can you tell me why my way of thinking is wrong?

Wow, it is too late to give this the attention it deserves, so, I'll tell you about just one thing concerning the infinite. There is an infinity of infinities. Yes, that's right and mathematicians have proven it. The proof is so simple, I can explain it here on myLot. First, the proof for just one infinity is that no matter how large is a number, you can always add 1 to it without limit. Hence, there is no largest number, there is an infinity of numbers Second, all numbers but zero have a reciprocal. You know, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, .... 1/(any number). Third, as numbers get larger their reciprocals get smaller but never reach zero. Fourth, there is an infinity of reciprocals between 1 and 0 because every number but zero has a recipercal. Fifth, if we add 1 to each of the reciprocals in step 4 we get another infinity between 2 and 1. Sixth, if we can add 1 to each of the reciprocals in step 4 we can add any number to get a different infinity between 2 other integers and since there is the original infinity to choose from there is an infinity of infinities. Pretty neat, eh?

Yes, GOD is real, Israel is not god and a god does not exist for GOD is not singular, but GOD exists and to be connected to that GOD is simple. If you really want to know how all you have to do is follow a great teacher. I can lead you to a lot of information if you're willing to follow. Good Luck and GOD Bless, Sincerely, Gary
