Infinities and Other Worlds
Could an actual infinity exist in other logically possible worlds, or different dimensions? Or if we say an actual infinity cannot exist, does that mean anywhere, including different dimensions, and worlds?
With a trillion observable galaxies, each with about 100 billion stars, there are certainly a lot of “worlds.” They are not just “possible” or “logical,” but real—great evidence that the universe is infinite. Dimensions? We don’t need no stinking 4 dimensions. The universe is 3-dimensional: x, y, and z. Period. At PSI, we assume that an “actual infinity” exists, both microcosmically and macrocosmically. Indeterminists who assume finity, its opposite, invariably must believe in perfectly empty space. That they enshroud this belief with more than three dimensions is their problem, not ours.
Galaxies were first thought to be “island universes,” an oxymoron similar to today’s “parallel universes” and “multiverses.” Since the discovery of galaxies, we have discovered galaxy clusters and clusters of clusters. In UCT, we proposed a “local mega vortex” as the next step up in the universal hierarchy. Nevertheless, we would never consider this yet another oxymoronic universe.
Infinity is the recipe for the universe. Without infinity, there is no place from which the constituents of the universe can come from. Hawking and Krauss must remain forever flummoxed. The fact is that the question-begging never ends. Matter always contains other matter. The religionists who claim that god created it all are eternally faced with the logical question: Then who created god? Even they can have no answer without infinity. The correct answer is that the material world goes on and on, without end. To posit finity is to join the flat-earthers in their imagined jump into the abyss.
