Yeah, like the earth :lol:
Reality is the sight, where reflection is the truth.
Water is the glass, where deception is the stone.
Reality is the cage, where limit is the lock.
Mind is the key, where only the blind can see.

I'm not arguing that the belief that the universe is flat is out there, but I bet in a few years the universe will be a square, or octopus shaped. Just sayin'.

No. It will stay the same shape.

Haha, yeah right. This is science saying this, which is constantly changing. Just a little while ago, you'd be insane to believe in the atom. I'm sure we'll eventually "prove" that the universe is really just sketch on a piece of paper.

I did a phsyics course in astronomy at university as a general education paper, but yeah im not going to even bother pretending I understand it, but heres what I got from it.

Its almost flat, the critical density value is extremely close to 0. I think it has something to do with whether the universe is open or closed, open being infinite, closed being finite.

If you are interested you should wiki physical cosmology, im reading a couple of articles from the portal every few days.

i see, it's flat like a piece of paper is flat - almost flat
