That's unknown....LJS9502_basic
Did you not even read the initial post? Or is your reading comprehension failing again?

Mine is fine....I see yours is failing again.

Your belief if there is something existing beyond the known universe, is unknown to you? :lol:

TC: Do you believe there's things outside the known universe? LJS: It's unknown. Either you're stating you're unaware of your own belief, regarding something exists beyond the known universe, or you're misunderstanding the question.

Wait.....are "other universes" considered to be part of one grand universe? Because I don't think that this universe just spontaneously popped up into existence (it bugs me when Hawkings says that nothing existed before our universe because time itself did not exist). Just because time in our universe didn't exist doesn't mean (at least I think) that the universe could have just popped into existence from nothingness. As to where "the first universe" came from, that's another matter entirely.

I think a lot of that sort of thinking is largely because of human perception. We're actually really bad at thinking "outside the box" to the point where picturing things like a new colour is nigh impossible. I still think it's possible that there's other "universes" existing out there much like galaxies exist in our universe but on a scale we can't even comprehend (because we can't even really comprehend our universe as we know it).

[QUOTE="chaoscougar1"]We aren't moving any closer to or further away from other stars (by any great margin)... Granted, we are supposed to be combining with Andromeda in the next billion years or so (I think) Nibroc420

So we're getting closer to andromeda, but none of the stars of andromeda?

If you can't discern between what I was saying about stars and then galaxies
I'm not gonna help ya
Use a little bit of deductive logic

>Two Galaxies, the Milky Way, and Andromeda Galaxies, are supposed to collide within the next 4 billion years. >Galaxies are made up of Solar systems, containing planets, and stars. >Collision entails the two bodies are getting closer to each other. Yet you say the Galaxies are getting closer, where as the stars are getting further away. How's that work? I should be the one face-palming here.

I am sure there is but it is currently unknown.

When did I say the stars are getting further away? I said we aren't moving closer to or further away from other stars, which was referring to other stars in our own galaxy as those are the only ones we can actually see We know galaxies have stars, but they are too far away and lost in the gases of the galaxy In summary: Andromeda on collision course Stars in our own galaxy staying relatively the same distance apart

If by known universe you mean observable universe then yes definitely.  The observable universe is approx. 93 billion light years edge to edge, however since light first came into being 400,000 years after the Big Bang, you can assume that something has to exist outside of what we can see.
