I’ve been watching some of the video taped presentations at the EU 2016 conference just held in Phoenix Arizona. In the final Q&A session the question of ‘Is the Universe infinite or not’ arose.
If the universe is finite then it must be an object and possess shape, in other words its outer bounding surface. This implies the existence of a god or creator. After all the created universe and a creator have to be distinct entities, no?
If the universe is infinite however, and then what does that mean anyway, then it is unbounded and shapeless and would exist as a unified interconnected whole. This scenario automatically precludes the existence of anything separate to the infinite universe, because if there was, then we are dealing with two entities, which have to have shape and thus means being finite.
And if you cease thinking is there still a universe?
And if you stop thinking do you still remain conscious?
In my experience I haven’t come across any god, so I accept the universe is infinite, and that it’s continuously being formed, on the fly as it were, by an underlying consciousness of which I am part, but separate from in the imaginal world of the Ego that is formed by the process of thinking which can only exist in a 3-D existence.
The important thing is not to think too much, let alone letting it become a habit, for then you become religious.
Update: Small correction above and in addition the I, the Ego, the observer is formed by the process of thinking.
