Is Our Universe Infinite?

I proved that our universe is NOT infinite, because if it is, is most be perfect (infinite is everything), but mean while, perfect is also everything. Therefore, perfect could be both limited, and infinite. If our universe is perfect, then it could be limited, but if our universe is not perfect, then it is not infinite.

That is an interesting argument, Zuoxi.

Let's talk about the degree of formalism your argument is missing:

  1. What does it mean to say that the universe is infinite? Does it mean something that exists for an arbitrarily long time? Does it mean something that is larger than something arbitrary in terms of physical size? If so, what is the metric for measuring the distance?
  2. What is perfection?
  3. How do you know the universe isn't perfect?
  4. How does perfection connect to infinity?

Philosophy isn't a academic area where people throw a bunch of arguments which sound romantic/poetic/mystic. Modern philosophy, I assure you, is heavily formal and equipped with reasoning and formalism. Agnishom Chattopadhyay · 8 months, 1 week ago

simple answer: the universe is self generating,its self generating and there is no computer behind it, this has been proven with the generation of stars and new galaxies, with this proof, the universe is infinite Ark3 Graptor · 8 months ago

@Ark3 Graptor Can you link me to that proof? How do you know there is no computer behind it? Agnishom Chattopadhyay · 8 months ago
