The Universe

The universe is in my opinion a different dimension. If you can imagine it I think at any direction of travel you're actually traveling on the surface of a sphere so that eventually you'll wrap around. It's odd to think about but thats what I imagine. Also, I think there is no end to the universe. If we ever managed to go in a straight line rather than following the curve of a circle we'd probably encounter a situation where there was no matter there, but we're still travelling. Similar to the clipboard in flash. It looks like it has an end but when you put an image the the edge of it the area expands and the image seems to fit. This is overly simplified because in this situation the program was created to expand the work area if something hit the edge but the idea is similar.

Here's an interesting look at dimensional thinking.

A friend of mine showed me that video. Although I do believe that most of it's true, there are some bits from dimensions 7+ or so which are possibly debatable. It's a really cool thing to watch though, even if you need to pause 11 or 12 times to figure out what the hell he's talking about.

The universe's dimensions are how far out the matter goes. If you go farther than that, then the matter (you) goes out farther and it expands (it's expanding anyway).

Even if it is a hypersphere, I doubt you'll wrap around because if you go far enough the hypersphere will just keep getting bigger and bigger.

Wormholes are another story...

I think if you could look at a 2d wormhole it'd probably look like an 8, where the wormhole is where the two openings connect and the loops of the eight are the circle you would have to otherwise travel to get to either point.

Well the earth probobly isn't in the center of the universe. Also if you believe that it is or that there is a center to the universethen that means you have to believe that the universe has an end and that there are other universes becouse if the universe is endless it has no center.
Also if you beleave that the universe is endless then you must beleive in aliens because there is no way that there isn't another planet close enogh to some sun and has good conditions for life forms
other universe
if there is another universe do you believe that it is like this crap of every descion makes a new universe or every universe bhas nothing to do with the others

i will repost this spellcheked from my computer later today...

I don't get why scientists are so desperate to explore space etc when we haven't even explored all of our own planet.

That's kind of true and false I guess. You can see it as we've studied so deeply into things like our cells, even down past sub-atomic particles, but we haven't gotten amazingly far with diseases to help us survive. Also, we're absolutely NOWHERE in studying about the ocean. I mean we've sent a few sub-type things down nearer to the ocean's bottom, but we haven't done so well about it. One other thing you also have to remember is that there are some really great power sources that have been found in space such as on the moon, and America hasn't done much about it, but China and Russia have started.

Two words: Space Race. In addition, human curiosity extends further than our oceans.

Would this make you a bit wary if you saw it while playing a game? I have to store extra data for a game I'm working on, but I am worried people are going to flip when they see this.

The ocean was really what I was refering to here. You never know, there could be 'something' down there that could revolutionise the whole world. An alternative powersource which doesn't give off as much pollution, if any? We really don't know. Yes, we are a tiny spec in a vast universe and we should learn more about what is around us and how it all works but that doesn't mean we shouldn't spend time learning more about our own 'spec'.

You're asking the wrong people by bringing this to developers who actually know about stuff like that :P Your average user might be put off - I'd give a more personal text-warning in the game before the box pops up, e.g:

This game may require extra storage space for data. If your player gives you any options to this effect, please click 'Allow' so that it can function correctly.

I guess so. I understand about the whole space race etc but I feel now is the time to start exploring the oceans before we heat them up and kill stuff that we are let to discover. I guess we are all curious about what is 'out there' but, personally, I am also currious about what is in the depths of the oceans, like in my previous post. (sorry to double post)

Ordinarily it would. But seeing as it is from jmtb02.com I would trust it, but most wouldn't.

just because there are christian sites out there peddling the belief that the earth is the center of our solar system doesnt make it a valid point of view. i can easily refute any statements you might have made.

geocentric solar system
yeah, this is a great theory. except one problem. bodies only orbit other bodies when they are held in its gravitational field. problem being, gravity is a force defined heavily on mass, and as much as i like the thought of the sun orbiting a planet 0.0003% its mass, there is no way that will fly.

no center of universe
the doppler effect, like it or not, relates to light as well as sound. most objects in the universe have an observable red-shift, which suggests that they are all moving away from us. were you to subscribe to the "big bang" concept (which the red-shift phenomenon supports QUITE strongly), this would provide a means of proving, and, some day, finding, the center of the universe.

Yeah probably, but I am not feeding this to the sharks in General.

The domain in that warning will actually display the domain the swf is hosted on, so if it's on Newgrounds it will display the domain Newgrounds.com.

Universe

This is an ongoing discussion which could last forever. I mean, there really isn't a true way to confirm these theories and we don't really know how to prove most of them. Personally, reality is already complicated enough as we currently perceive it.

i cant make it any more clear that this "we cant prove it" comment i keep hearing is false. we can prove that the sun is the center of our solar system. it is the closest planetary body with such a large mass, and our forward momentum keeps us in orbit of it. we can prove that all of the universe is moving away from a single point in space. we can prove this with the properties of light.

how much clearer can this be?

It's annoying how many people don't know the difference between the scientific and colloquial meanings of 'theory' :s
