Pinkfluff:
We have Philosophy, Gender Stuides, and Art here under Education but not one for things of a scientific nature? I see there's "Science and Medical News" up there, but that's not really the same thing. I don't know how much it'd be of interest to this community, but for me I love discussing the nature of the universe with anyone even a little knowledgable about it.

Devlyn:
Well, I'm stuck at "if the universe is expanding" then what is it expanding in? An empty "what" big enough to hold an expanding universe?

That's what's known as 'Three Dimensional Thinking'.
Space and time don't exist where the universe isn't present, so there isn't a 'what'. Basically, as the Universe expands, the 'what' is created.
At least, that's the simplest way of explaining things without having to go into the Standard Model and general relativity.

They are saying now that there may be a parallel universe, or even a multiverse.

All this science stuff gives me a headache.

Devlyn:
I was doing OK until you said that, now I have a headache too! Goodnight!
