I don't know, but it's very interesting nevertheless, whether we manage to understand it in the end or not.

what do you mean by understand?

 

we already know how a lot of it seems to work and things like the lhc at cern while help us understand more unless does something which collapses the universe to a point singularity in which case it wont matter.

I can highly recommend

Bill Bryson - A Short History Of Nearly Everting

It's fantastic, I downloaded the audio book onto my phone and listen to it whilst treadmilling. I'm so impressed I bought the actual book off amazon used.....H/B 50p - I kid you not!!

 

A fascinating book. Infact I'm going to listen to it again later on the treadmill!!

We only have an understanding of the observable universe. I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong.

I'll correct it for you.

 

We only have a limited understanding of the observable universe.

Or was God created by the figment of space that we imagine?

Nobody can answer "yes" for definite and you'd have to be quite ignorant and/or arrogant to say "no".

 

The answer seems to be, quite obviously, "maybe".

Considering our relatively insignificant role in the grand scheme of things, perhaps "maybe" sounds a tad arrogant?
