Is the Universe still evolving?
- Heavy question, huh? Well, what I mean by that is this: the universe--
Creation, as the AetherVerse story calls it, consists of
hundreds...maybe thousands of separate dimensions. Or is the number
too high to count? Is it still growing? And also, if this is the
case, HOW is it growing? Is Creation self-sustaining, or is the Light
- Still expanding and growing, most likely. I don't know what the number
is, if it's in the thousands, tens of thousands, millions, or beyond
human comprehension, but whatever it is, I'm sure it's getting bigger.
Not sure at what rate though. As for the last question, my first
reaction was that it grows and expands on its own, but now I'm not so
sure. I probably lack the knowledge to make an accurate or even educated
guess. I think the Light makes most of them, but that it's possible for
other beings, like the Sovereigns, to make worlds too. And I'm leaning
toward the idea that new worlds can form on their own as well.
Hell, if planets, stars, galaxies, and black holes can form on their
own, then a world or dimension is nothing. :P
- Personally I don't think the universe randomly grows on its own, at least
not at a very fast rate. While life on the already existing worlds may
expand and/or change, I don't see the universe expanding without some sort
of push. Perhaps every thousand years or so a star explodes, forming a new
world, but the universe as a whole would be too stable for that to happen
more often than once a millennium or so.
As for other possibilities for universe growth, I agree with Alex that
Sovereigns, among other species, may have the ability to make new worlds (or
drastically change the ones that exist by wiping the slate clean and
beginning again), I don't know if they really have a reason or drive to do
so given how many problems plague the world already.
