Is there anything at all outside of our universe?
Who else believes in multi-verse?
Light haven't traveled that far. So we don't know and we won't know for a very very long time
I think that's where some of the opinions expressed on SOH come from.
Do gardeners have just one plant & one tool?
The universe is defined as all existing matter and space, so if there is something, it is in the universe, it can't not be in the universe.
Universe, by definition means all encompassing. So no. If there is something outside the universe it wouldn't be the universe
Wouldn't be called the universe**
The UNIverse is our human word for it. Since space extends forever and ever and ever there could be a break of emptiness that is a zillion times wider than where the last object in our U is...then another could begin. Forever. Eternity. No end.
That would still be in our universe.
I've always had a theory that our universe is a part of a mega-universe, kind of like a giant galaxy
Idk never been there.
So, I don't know, I'm not a scientist?
jvc, I thought you were from outer space.
I am was sent here to take over the planet,
Reported back on Obama, recd reply,
forget about it, not worth the effort.
I knew it! You are an alien!

The universe is the universe. If there was something outside of it then it would be part of the universe
Whether you call it the universe, or the multiverse, if you define it as everything that is, then everything outside of it isn't.
Who says that it is "our" universe
Theory says there is a multiverse out there
But we could just be on a petri dish in a lab
Or on on a dandelion being carried around by an elephant named Norton
There's a book out there that answers this question.
If you're thinking about what is outside our universe, and you're thinking about space-time, then you're thinking about it wrong. Imagine our universe is a photograph in a stack of photographs. What is outside our photograph? Is it other photos? No.
Is it what would be in our photo, but is outside the frame? No. Is it the next moment after our photo (like the next frame in a movie)? No. Because everything in our universe is the DEVELOPING photo.
Our universe will only have things outside of it once it is developed. It won't be developed, ever, from our perspective - no matter how long our species lasts. That's the problem with the multiverse:
It can only exist to us if our universe is done developing, at which point we won't exist. It's almost like our universe acts like quantum particles to the outside observer. Ha!
Mind=Blown. I enjoyed that haha
And my idea on the universe is:
The answer was contained in the atomic arrangement of the pixels forming the semicolon. It also contains information about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. Those opinions and yours are probably equally valuable. LOL
The idea that the universe is flat and round is well established, however I suspect more than two angels can dance on the head of a pin.
MadS: I will put you back in my box of friends. LOL
Time and space require observers to have meaning. By definition, all observers are 'inside' the universe, therefore the 'outside' of the universe has no space and no time. Without those things, it's hard to imagine that anything can exist.
Our universe is expanding. What is it expanding into?
You're thinking about it all wrong. Our universe is only expanding when viewed from the inside.
So what's it look like from the outside?
If I remember right, the average color of the universe is a light tan color.
I would've figured it was black
By definition, no. If it existed wouldn't it be part of the "uni"verse?
Not necessarily. There's the hypothesis of multiverses that's gotten some pretty big names backing it, like Hawking. But also, some pretty big names against it. Idk enough about any of this to really have an opinion other then: hey, it's possible.
I guess I would still consider all those multiverses as still part of one universe.
Yeah. Physicists redefined the word "universe" to something they could handle, then argued there may be more than one. Linguists continue to give physicists strange looks.
A bigger universe
And outside that? Pants.
Huge pants that wrap around the whole thing. Can't even clasp the button, that's how big everything is. It's like the bigger universe ate five or six universes at the universe Thanksgiving!
No, the universe is part of a snot in some Hugh beings nose.
I believe that our Universe gradually fades out. Then after empty space another Universe begins. There are Universes to the infinity. There is no finite number. They all stretch to infinity. No ending.
Literally an infinite amount of universes?
I do think that. Space has no border or end. Its hard to fathom forever isn't it. If there can be one there can be others imho.
