Is the universe microscopic to something?

2 years, 5 months ago

Forever I have thought about the starting and ending of our universe. I also have been thinking about how little we are compared to the universe itself. Now what I’ve really been thinking about is what could make the whole universe as we know it look microscopic? Could something be so far out that it makes our universe look similar to a microscopic one celled organism. I’ve been researching a lot about how similar brain cells look to what we think the universe looks like. Could our universe just be a microscopic cell in another life? or something similar. I guess what I’m asking is what do you think is past the universe, does it fold on itself because its so big in perspective of us humans. Or is the universe tiny?

what if? All we can infer from what we have right now is that it is microscopic to something. the size levels just keep expanding for as far as any on earth can describe. Thats why biomimicry is so important and quantum theory, so we can learn to live in harmony with the universe again.

@kwelch5528, Without reading responses, I’ve had the same thought for awhile now also. And I think it is possible. The problem, as it appears to me, is that in order to prove we are a smaller organism of a larger being, we would have to either observe beyond the space of our universe, to observe our father being, if you will. However, anything beyond our four dimensions of space and time would, in my opinion make no more sense than our world would to one of Einstein’s flatlanders.

And still it seems possible. Our understanding, or lack of, doesn’t give it impossibility.

Would a single cell in my body be aware that it is apart of me? This is the same issue, on a smaller scale.

@jermophobe, It’s much more literal than you might think it is…

Science mostly holds that the universe must have limits because infinite size defies their logic and reasoning, but thus far, most evidence suggests that indeed the universe is infinite in, not only size but in time existed. If this is the case then nothing can be so far out there that the univesrse is microscopic, but obviously our galaxy could be, or our known sector of the universe.
Things that look like a small star to us may well be na entire galaxy that dwarves our own.
But another thing when you are talking infinites is there is no distinction between what we would class as small and large, infinite small and infinite large are exactly the same thing, this is why science does not like the theory, because it is not supposed to be possible for something to exist inbetween one thing, or even if it can be described as a “thing” at all.
So we should not exist but here we are so science is pissed off right now.

@alexishungry, oh why did my old account have to be deleted (accidentally by my little nephew)?

I mentioned this before: the evidence suggests that the universe isn’t a fractal. As for the confusion over a infinite vs. finite universe, we simply don’t know what’s beyond the observable universe.

@trek79, well just because we think the universe is big doesn’t mean it’s the biggest thing ever! we use to think that our galaxy was the biggest thing. Now we realize that its no where near big compared to universe! so what makes the universe small? as of now we don’t know but doesn’t mean we wont find out!

@kwelch5528, True, we used to think the world was the universe. In the sense of “That’s so meta” just like on Men in Black, a galaxy is a ball in a pouch and inside that galaxy is some dude with a pouch full of galaxies. It may just be an infinite loop, a solar system is an atom, maybe our solar system is actually an atom inside of a rock somewhere on this planet and if we were to grow so that our solar system was the size of an atom, we would find ourselves standing next to that rock, somewhere on Earth.

@trek79, thats exactly how i picture it! it may be completely different but my mind is satisfied with this explanation! That would really be amazing if it worked like that because the idea of the parellel universes would somewhat make sense were thats were they were but also here!

@kwelch5528, If it were the case, the applications for exploring the universe would be amazing, we could travel to some place on the other side of the galaxy, not by bridging the distance, but by finding the corresponding atom that is somewhere here then some how quantum transpose ourself onto it. It would also mean that there would be an unknown ammount of atoms in the universe that correspond to our solar system.
