Infinity Question

Post by Darkwing on 2010-10-28, 00:58

Here's something that's bothered me quite a bit through life. If they say that the universe is infinite, essentially meaning continuing on forever with everything bigger enclosed by bigger thing (ie, humans in planets in solar systems in galaxies) then doesn't it stand to reason that within our bodies, things get infinitely smaller? I mean it's not infinity if it doesn't go both ways. So essentially we are walking universes to other tinier particles, smaller than atoms and what binds them?

we dont really know for sure what the smallest particle in the universe is.

i wish we knew everything, but i think you are thinking too hard about something that doesnt really matter.

We get smaller in a relative and comparative sense in that the universe is expanding constantly. If that's what you mean, then yes. Environment around us expands, we stay the same.

Actually the same theory you are thinking of states that ALL space is expanding. Including the space in our body's. But i have no answer for DW.

I guess it's for both ways: Infinitly Bigger, Infinitly smaller...

Nothing can be infinitly smaller it's immpossible as once you get so small there is just nothingness, and do you think that if things are infitly bigger then our planets could be like electron orbiting a proton (the sun) and we could be an element or part of a molecule for a larger being or planet

That's sorta what I'm hinting at Lee, except if the universe really is infinitely large, than it has to be infinitely smaller too because then it isn't infinity. infinity goes both ways, otherwise it wouldn't be infinity. So in theory, for every smaller particle, there is an even smaller one inside of it and a smaller one inside of it and so on and so forth. Nearly impossible to comprehend I know, but that would be interesting if our bodies get infinitely smaller on the inside.

damn, a bacteria's 'universe' to think there could be smaller-than-microscopic life forms waging war deep within our bodies...

ive thought a bit about this concept, but never like this!
