    You're referring to the Particle Horizon.


    It is the boundary between the observable and un-observable universe.

    Correct for our current level of knowledge and ability.

    When we master the manipulation of time and space, can create wormholes etc, physical distance won't matter.


    One or two advances in technology can bring a quantum leap of ability. The first man to fly could have met the first man to walk on the moon, they were both alive at the same time.

    Drivel, a puerile fantasy rooted more in Hollywood and Isaac Asimov than anything remotely approximating science. To achieve any such "quantum leap" would require the means of propulsion that can generate speeds of light and even then it's just too damn slow.

    The means by which man has achieved travel to the Moon is founded on technology engineered from science established nigh on 500-600 years ago and has changed little.

    "Wormholes", for fuck's sake, what are you, the bastard son of Dan Dare or what? Anyone might think you were an American with your cap on backasswards dribbling "awesome" every other sentence.

    Twat!

    Okay, here's the question:

    What's the fastest thing in the universe?...

    eh? Is that another one of your sadly bastardised quotes? What kind of sordid business are you on now? I mean man, whither goest thou? sucking that shiny black cock in the night?

    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.

    I think when Douglas Adams penned that the theories about the expanding universe were not what they are today.
    And he was a fiction writer.
    Pity you didn't know that when you passed off his words as yours.

    oh for fucks sake, there are not enough facepalm memes in the entire universe to even begin to indicate my dismay at the cosmic levels of sheer blockheaded stupidity you display. You have to be a luigi sockpuppet, there is no possible way you are a real person.

    There's a couple of flaws in you post. Wormholes have nothing to do with quantum physics (yet). Two diferent theories...perhaps.
    Lulu is right to talk about wormholes, but wrong to say "when". At this stage it's so theoretical and fraught with unkown dangers that it would have been better to say "if".
    You're right he's a twat. He's desperately trying to appear smart after being shown up as lacking logic or scientific reasoning. He maintains he can prove something without being in possession of all the data. One can not reach a reliable conclusion without all the information pertaining to the subject at hand.
    He redeems himself here, "Correct for our current level of knowledge and ability." but sadly doesn't put that into practice for himself.

    What are you blethering on about. I never claimed fucking 'wormholes' were anything to do with quantum physics, I was simply quoting Mao in deriding his silly puerility.

    Before you say "blethering", I think you need to read again what you wrote and to be fair on how people read it.
    But yes, once again, Mao is a twat. Baldrick said it, you said it, two intelligent members concur (and me).

    Oh dear, as you have so vividly demonstrated, alliteration in the wrong hands is a clumsy technique indeed and indicative of the callow litterateur lolling in the lap of limpid lays.
