There is no center of the universe acording to chaos theory.

However no two lines ever run parallel, which is indicative of the fact we will run into each other at some point in time. Guess you gotta behave yourself wherever you go in this universe.

The universe is expanding according to scientists that know everyting about all things, and believe what the believe is true.

Of course this leads to the thought that there is no finite, which mathimaticians have be hashing about for hundreds of years.

I need another glass of wine.

good night

Holsten Festbock is good.

I know this one: make a circle large enough and it will look as straight as a line.

Yes and as I walk down the FLAT street where I live, I'm actually walking SIDEWAYS in relation to the earth!

YOU are the center of your universe.

If the universe is still expanding, does this mean we are also expanding? If so, that would explain the increased GAS.

interestingly, if we are in the pull of a black hole, and there is no way of knowing for sure apart from the one at the centre of the milky way, then the universe around us would appear to be expanding


anyways much of what is observed in the night sky - ain't there anymore :) which includes the supernovae which are used to determine that the universe is expanding in the first place

Just give me 10,000 years to get my head around this concept...there are no edges to the universe either!

Consider that as we begin to fall into a black hole, time begins to slow down. At some point near infinity, time stops. Therefore, who cares where the center of the Universe is, we'll never get there.

I recently saw an artists rendition depicting science's theory of many big bangs. Imagine blowing bubbles and all the bubbles are an "expanding universe" just like ours with hundreds of trillions of light years distance between each.

from your position, you would observe galaxies moving away from you in all directions, speed according to their red shift, so for you, your position is the center of the universe. any other position would also be the center for that observer, because they would see exactly the same thing.

Yep! An infinite object has no centre.

I am not saying the universe is infinite in scale, but if it is it has no centre - and if the universe is not infinite in scale (but finite and unbounded) then it still has no centre.
