Nonono. We'd be bragging about who could endure worse cramps, and saying that women couldn't serve in the military because they didn't know how to bleed for their country.

I'm still not sure if this is about dicks or not.

47?

You integrated very well into the human society Mr. Bigfoot.

Cool, the link no longer makes you watch a commercial.

You know what I find fascinating? That once you go out to the observable universe you are left with everything outside that distance and we will probably never know what lies, say, 1 million “observable universe distances” from the point.

If the universe is a finite space-time entity, the notion of what lies "beyond" it is meaningless, just as the concept of what "preceded" the big-bang is meaningless. To regard the universe as "contained" in something beyond itself only passes the buck into infinite regress. Within the dimensions of our experience, the universe we see appears to be truly "all there is". I get a shudder whenever that concept hits home (and the funny thing is, it's a concept that never sticks, I have to re-imagine it each time).

Even if there was some "beyond", I agree we'll never know anything about it, but for a different reason than sensory inaccessibility into unknown dimensions. We are constrained by something else: a brain so small it can be held in one hand. Just as it would be impossible to teach a dog to understand all the dimensions of Shakespeare, the physical limits of our own brains likely lock out concepts it would take either size or different "wiring" to comprehend. There may even be phenomena already seen within our universe whose full explanation is forever beyond the capacity of our mere three pound lump of neural tissue to reckon.

THAT notion also gives me a shudder, only I don't have to re-imagine it, I get it. I get that some things I'll never get - and will never know what they might be. But I won't miss them, either.

Big “if”.

Notice I didn’t say anything about containment.

Today our observable universe is 14.3 +/- billions of light years across. In a billion years, if we were here to observe, it would be 15.3 +/- billions of light years across. So you could say that our observable universe is expanding as time progresses.

RE: Lets talk about size...
I should have been more clear that I wasn't rebutting your point, FC, only putting in an oar of my own perspective. It is not at all certain that we're able to "see" out to the full extent of the universe and 1 million visible universe diameters beyond what we can see could be an infinitesimal fraction of its full extent. How we would ever be able to "see" into that kind of space would require not being bound by the speed of light (which does not necessarily entail FTL transit; the equivalent of "worm-holes" might suffice). And to my point, such technology may be beyond the limits of what a 3 pound neural network powered by oxygen can conceive.

I get you AK. What I'm saying is not that mankind will ever know, simply that the possibilities of what actually exists can't currently, or ever, be understood.

Ps as my wife likes to say, "we're in violent agreement". Smile
