In our life, everything is limited in size. Why would the Universe then be unlimited? This thought occurred to me following a recent Nautilus article: Is the Universe Open-Ended? An alleged Albert Einstein quote reveals similar doubt: “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
For one-cell organisms, their environment will appear unlimited. The same applies to multicellular organisms, including animals and plants. We might be the only species on this planet that has some (conscious) doubt regarding the notion of a limitless or unlimited Universe.
A 2020 Science Alert has an intriguing title: Study Maps The Odd Structural Similarities Between The Human Brain And The Universe. There are many articles that deal with the remarkable analogy between the human brain and the Universe. We know our brain is limited in size. Hence, why would the Universe be unlimited?
The mere fact that mathematicians our still looking for the last digit of Pi is telling. Implicitly, they do not believe that infinity exists. Probably, infinity is beyond human comprehension as everything in our lives is limited.
Our lives are governed by three dimensions: Love, Knowledge & Power (my blogs). When all three are equally important then we refer to trialism (my blogs). In case of Knowledge = Power, we refer to dualism (my blogs, Wiki). In cases where Power is leading (eg, China), we refer to monism (my blogs).
Power has the shortest duration of all as the death of a leader may end the hegemony of her/his reign. History shows plenty of examples.
If Love, Knowledge, Power and Time are limited then why would Space be unlimited?
