    Default The path to insanity ? Or enlightenment ?

    I do not want to get too deeply into this because it appeals to my enquiring mind, however I think it is dangerous ground (mentally).
    Or is it just gobbeldegook ? (Gibberish)
    Do we want to go further or just continue living in our happy (hopefully) ignorance?
    This is an "EISH" of note !

    It might drive me to insanity not knowing what you are on about!

    Of course you are right.
    I have edited by adding the link to the video / theory ...
    It would seem that it is already having some effect on me.

    The diagonal theory thingamajig is also present in this video.



    Some of his videos make my head hurt, and some others I grasp.

    Even the ones I do not understand, I find fascinating.

    I've GOT the answer
    Just create adjacent INFINITE HOTELS, Yes ?

    Do you see how THIS get's to you !

    Methinks that the answer to the title of this thread is infinite INSANITY.

    I think that this must be my biggest EISH EVER !!!!!

    I am still perplexed by this question:

    With the Big Bang, the Universe is expanding, but what is it expanding into? It would suggest that there is an edge to space. In which case space is infinite. But then what is on the other side of infinite?

    Infinity: "boundlessness".

    If something goes on to infinity, it has not end. Hence, no "other side".

    You SEE what I have started here .... PUB philosophy and "in depth" discussion.

    I revel in these kind of conversations.
    However most likely not the right forum - BUT this is the PUB section, right ?

    That is where these kind of "deep" discussions frequently originate from but usually end up dissolving into the gibberish category as time (and more beers) progress.
    NO, I am NOT at the PUB now !!!!

    "Seriously" though - it is interesting and perplexing is it not ?
    I sometimes curse my enquiring mind, but these days it keeps me occupied and "alive".

    I am also very capable of speaking (Typing) absolute Shy*e at times.
    Even that - can sometimes provoke interesting responses.

    The insults and derogatory responses I just ignore.

    There has to be another side to space. Science tells us of a big bang with an expansion outwards. Outwards into what? There is inside of the expansion and there must be an outside of the expansion therefore there has to be an edge to the expansion.

    My analyst assures me that I am not suffering from insanity!

    She mumbled something that sounded like: "Anybody who enjoys it that much can't possibly be suffering".

    I have no idea what that was about.

    Well then, it begs the question.

    What existed before the big bang? They say the big bang created the universe, but you need energy to create energy. You cannot create something out of nothing...
