Ed  Averill's Point Of View

Cosmology -- If the universe is everything, and scientists say that the universe is expanding, what is it expanding into?

Let's try it like this... 
"Why are we here?"
"Why does there have to be a why>?"
"Well,  if there isn't a why, why would that be true?"
"So,  part of why we are here is to ask; 'Why are we here?'"?

Children need to start asking such questions...   Education at it's finest:  http://www.jasonproject.org/

Adults need to keep challenging themselves:
Cosmology seems to be a regular topic of the ISEPP which has had annual lecture series in Portland, OR.
This is a very entertaining series in general, though there have been a couple of clunkers.

Expand your thinking:

Warp Drive When?

Faster Than Light?

What class civilization are we?
