Ask A Genius 284 – A-Atheist (6)

September 8, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: What if the universe is its own container somehow?

Rick Rosner: Well, I don’t know. I mean that’s a possibility. I don’t know how that would work or it’s a possibility that you don’t need infinities and somehow the hierarchy of containers can feedback around so that you don’t need an infinity of containers.

It becomes like an Escher’s one-hand drawing the other which is two hands drawing each other and you could  imagine some kind of network of  container hardware world which somehow loop around, in the end, don’t require an infinite number of frames but that  sounds just as goofy is that the idea of  an infinity frames or you might be able  to argue that the infinity is moot  because it is it’s impossible to get at.
