Hence the term Observable Universe. :smilin:


So in a stroke we have the size of the universe for humans and other lifeforms bound by 4-dimensional spacetime - 14 biilion light years in any direction (give or take a few hundred million light years). :bawlin:

Well that's one branch of science we can cease giving grants to. :laughing:

There are many unforeseen benefits from scientific research though - think I'd rather raise more cash by making the rich pay more and scrapping nonsense like Trident.

The search for knowledge for it's own sake is probably humanities most noble pursuit. :cuppaT:

Well it's still quite big when compared to (for example) your local Morrisons. :mrgreen:

At a guess I'd say the visible universe was at least three times the size of our local Morrisons but I'll commission some more research and get back to you. :smilin:

What is the meaning of your life might be a more appropriate question.

Is there a deep meaning or are we all just going thru the motions while waiting for the grim reaper's call. :tradmill:


Apart from sex booze and rock and roll? Drugs for those who partake and art for those who wish to leave a mark, other than that fuck all. So best we just enjoy it as it is not a dress rehearsal.
