Is our existence/universe a paradox?

From discussing the nature of the control system to space phenomena, theorize away.

Is our existence/universe a paradox?

PostFri Mar 10, 2017 9:30 pm

If the universe is/was infinite, it would have no end nor beginning; it would have just 'always been there'. But infinity is not possible, nor real, it is an irrational number usually used for/as an expression or exaggeration of something. So the notion of an infinite universe can be ruled out essentially. On the other hand, if the universe is not infinite, what lies outside of it? Because, just like the 'number' infinity, the physicality of 'nothing' is not real and can not exist either. So, what was before the universe and/our reality - and what lies outside of our universe?

Death creates life, life creates death. It is an eternal cycle we cannot truly understand in our mortal form :Smile:

When something ends, it creates a new beginning. Simply put in this methaphor from the Lion King:

''We eat the antilope when we live, but when we die, we become the grass, and the antilope eat grass. So the circle of life is complete''.

The answer is; life is never ending. It might change form, (we might become the grass) but it will never dissapear. The same goes for the Universe, when one ends, another begins. It's not a paradox, it's just very hard for our mind to grasp this reality.

The universe isn't infinite. The earth, sun, moon, stars are shrinking and about to 'die'. They had a beginning hence do have an end.
