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 that 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.
