Post 35

35. Cosmologists have speculated that the Big Bang was the result of matter and anti-matter particles annihilating each other in a colossal explosion. If the Universe is infinite in extent (which it very well might be) then it is conceivable that this matter/anti-matter annihilation is still taking place on the extreme borders of our universe. It could be that our perceivable universe exists on this boundary. Human consciousness could behave like anti-matter when it comes into contact with material reality. The resultant explosion appears like a viable, ever-shifting, reality; much like the image the electrons in your television create, as they collide with the screen. In accordance with Norman McCaig's line "the frontier is never somewhere else," the edge of the universe may be no further than the tip of your nose.
