Only if time and space is infinite.

Is it possible that Space and Time (or even Space-Time) are infinite?

If you don't know for certain that something is definitely impossible, then you must conclude that it may be possible.

So you're answer should be "Yes", not "Dunno".

Yes. I am a firm believer that anything is possible. The universe is completely malleable...we just need to figure out how to mold it.

Is it possible that we are already molding the Universe, but un- or sub-consciously, rather than consciously?

What would a Universe look like, if it was being shaped by the thoughts of beings within it; but where those beings don't realise they are shaping the Universe with their thoughts?

Why not. Especially if theres only one of us here. Of course one main consciousness would mold it's own experience as we mold our dreams.

The Universe does not give a fuck about us. We can’t “mold” anything except on this tiny rock and perhaps the neighboring rocks in our solar system.

All the billions of other galaxies we can’t do jack shit to.

RE: The original question: Is anything possible?

Answer: No. It is not possible, for example, for Someguy to ovulate. Nor is it possible for the Moon to spontaneously turn into hummus. I can probably think of at least five other things that are not possible.

I bet Someguy ovulated already in the. Past.

If time/space is infinite then anything, no matter how improbable, will happen. It's a mathematical certainty.

These things are not apparently possible, currently.

Is that the same as: completely and forever impossible?

Don’t all the experts agree that the universe is expanding? If so, it can’t be infinite.

Yes. Well, in SG’s case, he could have a uterus and ovaries added via surgery. But the moon will never be able to spontaneously turn into hummus. Impossible.

Then say we went to the "edge" of the Universe, what is on the other side? It certainly won't be a wall or barrier or some kind, that would imply another side.

Unless the Universe possesses some kind of wraparound topology where you reach the "edge" going outward only to be instantly transported to the other end going back in at which point physics now resembles Warner Bros cartoons.

But if there is a wall, barrier or border of some kind and there's something beyond it, even if just a void, how far does that go? Is it finite too? And if we reach the end of that, what is on the other side of that end? How far will that go? And so on and so on.

I've read some quantum theories (that I might admittedly not fully understand) that said that it's possible via quantum fluctuations for one thing to spontaneously transform into something else, for example an electron can morph into a positron.

It would entirely be possible for those random quantum fluctuations if they exist to reconfigure the Moon in such a way that its mass is now 100% hummus.

It's just....the probability of such a thing happening at that scale is so low as we're talking expressing it in scientific notation to tell how many numbers behind the decimal point low.

Functionally and effectively impossible, but not actually impossible.

Of course, if such a thing were to happen, the scientific example of that and a literal act of divine manipulation are indistinguishable. Given that there's more evidence of God existing than that of random quantum fluctuations causing the Moon to turn to hummus, well...

There is no space-time past the edge of the universe. Therefore it’s not “nothingness” or “void” past the edge, because there is no physical space there to be filled with nothing or anything.

Then what is beyond the edge? What is the Universe expanding into? If the Universe has a defined edge then it has a shape that can be observed from the outside. What is on the outside?
