It is easier for me to imagine an infinite universe than to imagine an infinite inner universe. However, this does not mean that there are limits to the internal space. It just seems a more difficult concept to imagine. Nor is there a guarantee that the universe is infinite either. There can be limits to the universe. If this is the case, one must ask the question of what lies beyond those limits. Perhaps the biggest and only problem in science is the inability of human minds to truly understand the universe in which we live. Keep trying though. So, is there a limit to the inner universe. I hate to dwell on this question, because that would require delving into the realm of quantum mechanics. One must be, is the limit that must be passed to the infinity of the small.
We all know that matter is made up of ordinary matter which is made up of protons, neutrons and electrons. The only exception is hydrogen, which has no neutron in its nucleus. These particles form atoms that combine to form compounds. Beyond this level is the field of quantum physics, a very small study. Quarks, leptons, and bosons are the subatomic components of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Beyond this, who knows. Subatomic particles may consist of smaller particles or subatomic particles. Is there a never-ending spiral of infinite smallness? Probably not, at some point it is reasonable to assume that we are reaching for pure energy. Perhaps energy can be rolled off to form an atomic particle without these atomic particles forming particles, atoms, and so on. Perhaps the manner in which energy forms a subatomic particle determines its behavior. Hence there are six flavors of quarks, six kinds of leptons, and twelve kinds of measure bosons.
Are energy limits the limit? Once you have pure energy, it is easy to imagine something getting smaller and smaller, because there is no solid component to this object. There is nothing, just energy. In my eyes I can imagine a journey into the infinitely small. At the same time, this concept seems beyond the realm of possibility. However, the same could be done with outer space travel. It seems a lot easier to imagine getting bigger and bigger versus getting smaller and smaller. However the same process is used. I can imagine space as being infinite either way. Is this the case? You don’t need matter or energy for this experiment. In fact, let’s remove both and just think of the empty space. Imagine that the universe contains neither energy nor matter. Is this possible? Matter seems to be inherently related to the concept of space. If there is nothing, then there is no limit to the small because there is nothing. After all, one cannot have size when there is no object to look at. Volume seems to be central to the idea of infinite space. When I try to imagine something getting smaller and smaller or bigger and bigger I seem to reach my limit. Even when you consider that an atom is mostly empty space. If you remove that empty space to the extent possible, an object can’t minimize anything without getting rid of parts of it. Is this what happens with a black hole? Is there a limit to the amount of mass that can occupy a given space? I suppose that when an object explodes to form a black hole, the matter is rearranged to allow as little free space as possible between the atoms; as well as within the atoms themselves. In this case, there are restrictions on the amount of matter that can exist in a given space.
What if we consider that all matter in the universe has been transformed into free energy? Then there would be no restrictions, right? Could we then compress all the matter in the universe into one small space? The Big Bang Theory and the Singularity come to mind. The problem here is that the inner space is infinite than theoretically all energy could explode on itself indefinitely. So there must be a limit here to how much energy can take up a given space. Either that or there is a limit to the interior space. There are limits to smallness. One has to assume that this boundary exists if you believe in the big bang, because there would be no reason for the expansion or explosion of the singularity. This creates a strange notion to me that something with no mass still has a limit to how much it can take up a given space.
Consider the infinite vastness using all the matter in the universe. If you could hold all the matter in the universe together without it collapsing under the weight of its own gravity, then what? There is a finite amount of matter in the universe, so once we have a big ball of matter, what is beyond that? Again, the answer is empty space. A void that lasts forever and ever. The only true way to consider the matter of infinite inner space is when you are not considering matter or energy. Remove them from the equation and just think of the void. And then it becomes easier to imagine infinity going both ways. This fictional universe does not exist, and the only one that exists (that we know of) is this universe. One where matter and energy are everywhere. And in this universe there seems to be a boundary to an infinite small, but not to an infinite size. Then again, this can be a product of our daily lives. Matter is all around us, and we live on a big ball of it. In the end it may be that we live in a matter area. At this point, in which we live there are quantifiable sizes of things. Once you transcend matter to the furthest point of our universe, there may be a vast, empty, infinite beyond. The same may apply to the inner verse. Once you go beyond the limits of matter and energy, another void may exist. One that expands forever to infinity.
At the end of the day, this is nothing more than a fun exercise for me. I love pondering these questions, but I do have some conclusions that I believe in more than others. Anyone who has read my paper on the nothingness universe knows what I think we would find if we went far enough into space. This hypothesis contains the infinite beyond as being made up of an undiscovered supersymmetric atom consisting of both matter and antimatter. The combination that constitutes the true essence of the thing. This hypothesis does not preclude the existence of an infinite inner universe. All of this did not exist before the creation of the universe as we know it. However, it is easy for me to imagine the space that exists between particles within a universe of nothingness. Therefore, it may just be that the structure of the nothingness universe suffers from size limitations. Once this constraint is breached, the infinite, matter-free inner universe may still exist within the nothingness universe. If you are confused by what I suggest you read my article on being nothing. Going to him now will take a long time. For now, I must conclude that there is a strong possibility that inner space has no limit, and that it may be infinite after all. As illogical as I find this concept, I cannot dismiss it.
