One thing I have always loved was science. As a kid I had telescopes,microscopes,ant farms,pets, and everything they had at the school and public library I read for my age level. Too many stories of me and what animals I kept,thrills of catching Alligator lizards with my friend Steve- a red headed country boy with a twang. Or, burning ants with a magnifying glass and Alex who had a Richard Drefuss laugh and personality- in 1966- showing me how to melt slugs with salt. What fun. I grew out of that stuff- take my word for it.
But my natural science education went on. I worked with scientists as an adult. Now,I also watch everything I can about newest Cosmological news. And I have questions still: Is life a dimension? For all I know the Universe didn't exist pre my birth,and will end when I die. And yes- that is based on a science theorem. Even Einstein had to consider if the moon existed when he wasn't looking at it. True. Another theory that has math behind it is endless Universes and all possibilities of you exist in some or all. I sort of see a flaw in that "All versions of you that you can imagine exist somewhere" If I imagine myself as God in one who then makes all other versions of me also God in all other Universes....then why am I just Stan and not a God right now? One for my logic-lol.
Also..those endless you's? They could all die too. So,no you might not be eternal. We all might be like subatomic particles...we collide,flash,and decay back to nothingness from whence we came. It scares me I might have that right.
And as long as I'm at it. Dark energy? My theory is..black holes take matter,compress it and expel it in a way that is the Inflation that we see. Like air inflates a balloon. Makes sense to me.
