Universe Expanding?
 
So i hear do that the universe is expanding into new area, but how can it be possible

if the universe is expanding whats it expanding into? does this mean it has an end? but if it has an end whats on the other side? or how could there even be another side?
and if it doesn't have an end how can anything go on for ever? and then if it doesn't end how can it expanding?

told my gf this and she told me to stop getting stoned and focus on life haha

Universe expanding indeed

It's the universe that's expending, there's no "whereinto". The universe is all there is, it's just getting larger. :o

Bob_Sacamano 11-17-2012 03:45 PM

Why would that mean it has an end?

Obsceneairwaves 11-17-2012 03:47 PM

the universe is expanding.


the real question is whether it will keep expanding or start to contract

probably best to listen to your girlfriend.


the universe is everything so everything is expanding.why cant the universe expand its self?huh... like the boss of a huge corporation who has billions of dollars eventually finds new ways to improve the business. like Mcdicks, they are always coming out with new idea for shit.

This is a poor analogy, but listen to this:

Imagine that the universe is an area on the surface of a balloon. Then blow up that balloon. The area that encompasses the universe has expanded to an observer within the universe, without actually taking over any area outside of the universe. (Ignoring the fact that there is no such thing as outside the universe)

That is one way I always try to explain it, and it seems to help people understand.

I wish that was on Netflix. During the summer I went through a phase of falling asleep to that every night, was so relaxing and interesting.

The universe is infinitely expanding and mind boggling. Also i'm sure your girl is going to leave you.

Einstein said there were two truths in the universe: both of these.


(Paraphrased, of course)

Acou97 11-17-2012 04:09 PM

the way i see it if something is expanding it has to has a limited size, or an "end" somewhere, if its already limitless or endless how could it expand?

"There are only two things infinite: the universe, and human stupidity......and im not so sure about the former."


Is that the quote you're looking for ?


EDIT: fixed for damn accuracy, thanks rickyj

eGraham 11-17-2012 04:11 PM

Yes, that's why I said paraphrased :p:

Godsmack_IV 11-17-2012 04:12 PM

Well wherever that end is at this very moment, the universe is expanding in all directions around it.

fix'd




the universe expanding faster than anything can move is a reasonable explanation for the 'end of the universe' thing.


also, multiverse theory.
