The universe has everything?

How does science work? And what's all this about quantum mechanics?

The universe has everything?

Post by Philosophy Explorer »

I call this into question.

The universe has been said to have everything in it. But it's also said the universe is constantly expanding. Therefore down the road, new parts of the universe is forming, parts that aren't in existence (even though they are implied).

Is there a resolution to this?

You could say the universe has the potential to contain or have everything.

That would cover everything that is and everything that can or will be.

The universe does not have an algorithm that can determine whether an arbitrary Turing machine halts.

Nor does the universe contain an algebraic procedure to solve an arbitrary fifth degree polynomial.

There are plenty of easily described things that the universe can never contain.

It may be that this or that "has been said," but of course in a world of seven billion people, many false things will be said.

More accurate...

The universe has the potential to contain or have everything that is possible within the context of the universe.

Maybe it is creating potential space through which it can condense back into itself to form a singularity.
