Thanks mathman. I was just curious if many of the stars that we look are indeed just different views of a finite amount of stars.

If the universe is finite and gravity was able to affect light back towards the core of the universe, perhaps it is possible, for example, that a star viewed in the northern hemisphere may also be viewed in the southern hemishphere.

It may look to an observer here to be 2 different stars because the distance appears to differ from one to the other.

It could also appear that one star is moving away from the earth and the other towards the earth, if the light from the opposing side of the star is warped around and viewed here.

Just a thought. I have no expertise in the field or proof of course.
