Limits

Does everything have a limit?

In theory, no, because numbers are continuous; but then the theory of infinity arises.

To put it another way, the universe is expanding, but if that's so, it must be expanding into something, which means there's a limit.

Or how about temperature, is there a point where something physically can't get hotter?

We assume all measurements are limitless, but really, they just go further up the line, and lines aren't continuous. Only cycles.

So, is everything limited, or is everything a continuous cycle?

Only math contains things that don't have limits.

There is an absolute lowest temperature. According to physics the highest temperature possible in our universe is the temperature of the universe at the moment of it's beginning which is apparently 1.32*10^23 K.

Forget the universe, is there an absolute everything?

Think of it like this, the universe is not the biggest thing. If it's a real thing then there are things greater than it by laws of probability.

So what's the biggest? Is there a biggest? Is there an everything?

How do you even define your "everything". What is the "absolute everything" you are thinking about?

Why must the universe be expanding into "something", and if it does expend into something why does that have to have a limit?

Are you talking about temperature in theory, or temperature as it is in our universe or temperature how it might be anywhere outside our universe?

It's all just very misinformed, blind guessing. Nothing you are talking about makes much sense or is particularly well thought out.


B-but sorry I called you a moron. no expression

While waiting for my doctor's appointment, I read a science article which mentioned a theory that the Universe is limitless and will forever be expanding.

You were being rude and unreasonable.

How can you not get that that was uncalled for?

That depends entirely on which reality you're in.

On a scale of one to ten, how high are you right now?

I apologized, move on.

Still, your questions posed are juvenile at best. It's nothing particularly deep and some just plain nonsensical. Many of the things you want to talk about are ill-defined or absolutely abstract. Also, nice how you disregarded my points.

Pre or Post COIE? Hell what happens to him after after FC and RIP are done? But you're probably right, he is the goddamned Batman afterall.

doesn't this depend entirely on the variable in question?

like, we can define scales with ends, thus limits exist.

hell, the concept of a limit is contingent to something having a variable that exists in a scale upon which a measurement can be made. All such scales are anthropic. So, yes, limits can exist, but only because we define them.

That's a euphemism for what I said in my first post, I demand this man be punished for his misbehaviour.

I asked a reasonable question in order to discern the reasoning for his statements.
