On expansion... the universe expands, our consciousness evolves, and we are taller today than we've ever been.
Go back a couple of millennia and you'd see that the short folks of today would be considered tall.
Go back even further and the world is a different place.
Back even further and eventually we come to realise that dust is playing with funny forms to a level of complexity where, eventually, with the passage of time, it is safe to say that the forms are now playing with the dust.
It's a circus and we are the clowns.
Well, in truth, there are no numbers at all Humans created numbers, so they only exist to us. If we say there is no highest number, there won't be. (Well there is the infinite sign ∞, which in mathematics, is considered a number) If we say numbers go on forever, they will. Do you believe that there was a start, or do you think there simply always was a form of something, which we were built off of? And if we're clowns, who's the audience?
