How Much ? Infinity Divided By What Number = Finite ?

How much of the real universe do we actually see?
If it is truly infinite, the "How much" will always be infinitesimal. An infinite amount divided into any smaller portion is still infinite.

If only we could rely on something which has answers and has never been wrong.
"Of the INCREASE of His government and peace there shall be NO END."

Alternatively, if we want to speculate ---
What if each of the real universes turns out to be finite, but there are an infinite number of them ?

In this case, we would say "How many ?" instead of "How much ?".
