That the universe is omnipresent is just a childish tautology.philosopher19 wrote: ↑October 6th, 2018, 1:04 pmI'm not against the idea of the universe as being Existence. I'm against the idea of Existence as being anything other than infinite, omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient. If the universe has these traits, then it can be considered as Existence. If not, then it would be paradoxical for us to say that it is.chewybrian wrote: ↑October 6th, 2018, 9:35 amI'm not sure this is correct, in terms of time. Does a new universe begin with every big bang, if they do repeat? If all the same matter and energy is conserved, though transformed in various ways, couldn't you say that it was still 'the universe' at each step? If so, then you could speculate that the universe has always existed.
In terms of space, then yes, it makes sense that the universe can't stretch out infinitely if it started from one spot, no matter how fast things might be moving.
That the universe is omnipotent is just silly.
That the universe is infinite is beyond empirical verification.
It is simply an abuse of language to suggest that the universe or existence if omniscient. If not it is just absurdly stupid. In fact you might as well say that the universe or existence is omni-stupid.
