Chapter 2
Space, Matter, and Energy are Infinite
Once again we are delving into the concept of infinity, and this
chapter shows how confusing infinity can be when using logic to
explain it.
That being said, in this chapter it will be the intent of this
paper to prove, by using logic, that matter and energy are existent
throughout infinity and it is not limited to the known, finite
Universe, nor to any other finite reality.
So let's get started.
Empirical knowledge is knowledge acquired by the use of
the five senses, i.e., vision, hearing, smell, taste, and touch.
Firstly, matter can be studied and recorded by viewing the colors,
the texture, the hardness, the electrical conductivity, and so on.
Matter can be differentiated by smelling it, or tasting it, or by
the feeling of the granularity or smoothness, and in particular
cases matter can be studied and recorded by the sound it makes in
particular circumstances. And secondly, matter can be studied
through experimentation, mostly by combining or subtracting certain
chemicals to see how they behave. Of course, most, if not all, forms
of matter have been studied and described by the use of empiricism.
