so what exactly is big or small? those words are all relative to us, or relative to our knowledge. i was reading up on the big bang thread... and came to the conclusion that the universe was created due to an unimaginably huge force, which created matter,energy and space as we know of it. but was that force really that huge? of course its everything to us, but whats beyond our universe? what if the existence of our entire universe was just a small spark and a brief period of time made in a whole different world? a world so big that the existence our of universe is undetectable. likewise, smaller worlds relative to us may exist that we may never get to detect. hell, different laws of physics and time may apply to different worlds... and we would never know. fact is, once we remove ourselves from the center of everything(size, location, time), where do we stand in the grand spectrum of things? we REALLY dont know. just a thought... any opinions?
