Something interesting I read somewhere...

When we look up into the night sky (on a clear night that is!) we see the many many stars but we can also very clearly see the spaces in between them.

Now if the universe was infinite then it would be fair comment to say that the ammount of stars up there would also be infinite and therefore every line of sight would end up at a star.
So in theory the night sky would be a pretty much completely lit up everywhere and indeed very bright.

But it is not and therfore from what was stated above we could argue that there are limits to the universe.

we don't see all the stars up there anyway. there are a lot of factors that make only the brightest/closest visible to us.

"if there is an End to Space what is on the other side ??"

We are so limited in what we can measure and evaluate that which we can comprehend. The fact that the question of "Is there an end to space" is asked, exemplifies our limited understanding while exemplifying our thirst for a deeper understanding. Perhaps it is in order that we prolificate some mind enhancing drugs to help provide some answers on a conscious and attainable level.

My question is if space is considered infinite right now, but is also expanding what or where is it expanding into ?

I believe "Space" is just that. Without space the existence of dimensions would never be. Even a 1-dimensional object requires space.
Therefore, space is a large as how far an object can reach. In other words, as the universe is expanding as we speak, space has to be defined to define the length(or distance) from where it expanded. Space is inifinite!

Although I wholeheartedly support the continual search for total scientific understanding, I think our current existential paradigm is incredibly limiting and ultimately our ideas (and they really are just ideas) of what reality can be, will in the end destroy us all.

As a 190k-yr-old species, we've too often proven ourselves far from noble in our use of scientific discoveries. It is indeed a distinct possibility we may not overcome this sort of fundamental moral foolishness before the pot boils over.

The greater tragedy is that it'd likely be equally disastrous for other species.

After all these years, its still funny

Lets say for example, you are in a spaceship of sorts and you find yourself beyond all galaxy's--- in the void of deep space Are you actually moving at all if space never ends or is movement only relative to other objects ?

My warp-driven carpet-covered plywood spaceship is almost finished, so I'll let you know when I get there. Blast-off is scheduled for Septembruary 47th.

That is the DUMBEST thing i have ever read i cant believe you thought that was a valid point light defuses so sure we cant see it there but it is here is an image of a VERY SMALL completely black spot in the sky (a spot so black even high power telescopes saw nothing there) but hubble stared at it for 4 months exposure... here is what it saw

we just cant see far enough

Well Mr VooDooX

I ONLY said it was a interesting article I read somewhere, and where exactly in my post did I have you believe that I thought it was a valid point?
It was an interesting little read for sure but where the hell did I say it was valid

Typical runryder, people can't be bothered to read other peoples posts carefully.

if you would even bring up an article that stupid you deserve it that would be like me bringing up the earth is flat and expecting not to get bashed the mere fact your brought it up meant you wanted people to think of it also meaning you hadn't ruled it out on your own hence you support it

Listen here pal the original writings did NOT come from me and I DID NOT SAY THAT I SUPPORTED IT or even implied that I did, you really need to read posts a bit more carefully and think before you start typing.

Just because you personally don't agree with a theory does not give you the right to bash someone over it. All you had to say was something along the lines of 'well I dont really agree with the theory of a bright night sky' and then state your reasons. Just why you decided to respond in the manner in which you did is completely beyond me.

You may agree with what I've written here or you may not, to be honest I dont too much care, just try and respond to posts in the future in a slightly less rude and much less insulting way.

ps
that would be like me bringing up the earth is flat and expecting not to get bashed
People know the earth is round, people know next to nothing about the universe (in the grand scale of things), so really the two are not like each other at all.
