: : *of course you know that endless doesn't mean infinite.

: Feel free to explain in your own words.

Imagine a circle. That circle goes on forever(it's endless), BUT it isn't infinite because when you would break it and transform it to line, that line would have finite lenght. That's 1+1 dimension(s). Now transform that to space. Now we have 3d+1d and time. Therefore endless but not infinite. Why do I have a feeling that you already knew this :O)

: It has to be equal (see original posting).

It's very paradoxal. So if Big bang occured that automaticaly suggests that it never happend?

But, perhaps, there were always "something" (unequal amount of matter and antimatter). That matter may be "pulsing": Big Bang, Big Shrink and so on forever. Without begining and end.

Tell me what you think.
