The Universe is it falling, raising, floating, tumbling or Static ?
To know If earth is moving, we can refer to other cosmic entities eg. we can refer to Sun and know yes Earth is moving around it, and Sun itself is moving roughly around the center of Milky Way , which in turn is also moving, but what all of these combined together are moving ? eg. falling down or raising up since all of them move at the same pace how can we measure what will be the reference point ? relative to each other the galaxies might be moving away, but how we can know all of these are falling together or raising up or tumbling in some eccentric motion ?
Closing Statement from Ravi Krishna Seethepalli
@MK: we have been using Infinity to explain away numbers which humans in our present evolutionary continuum cannot comprehend, a little over 200 years ago we did not know the speed of light and the fastest thing which humans know at that time has been the sound if not cheetah, I see we will very shortly encroach into the space of Infinity and start defining it or improve the boundary of known numbers so that infinity can be further refined eg. until 18th Century we did not know the speed of light and now we have an approx number to it, likewise I expect humans will define and be able to accurately measure the speed beyond light. the question will be what can travel faster than light..I understand there is a debate in scientific community on this issue, but for a lay man the answer would be "Consciousnesses" which can also be loosely described by the word "thought". I think and hence I am.
@Stewart Gault : Thanks for answer the question, your answer leads to another question if we are expand what is i that the universe is expanding ? i.e when the distance between the dots increases where it is increasing to ? what is existing there before we were expanding ? emptiness is an easy answer that hits out mind, but why only emptiness are we pushing something away ? if yes what is it , if no then why what it existing before universe started to expand. I believe we are using Big Bang Theory to explain it to our limited understanding power, it was easy to comprehend we have a staring point and like a balloon we are expanding.. but expanding into what ? and why should we expand and when will the expansion stop (will it ever were to stop ?)
