That the entire universe is completely interconnected.

Funny you should mention this point. My understanding of the theories of cosmological inflation is that there are parts of the universe which are utterly disconnected.

Now here is a real paradox for you. If you could prove to your own satisfaction that there must be matter in the universe which has never affected , and never will affect you in any way, does such matter exist? Does it in some sense "matter"?

I realize that you may deny the premise (that you could prove something to your own satisfaction), but just pretend for a little while that you could.


And what if I were to grant that there is some 'matter' that is completely disconnected from other 'matter'. And what if I were to tell you that the definition of 'matter' is arbitrary. That matter, energy, everything is all the same thing. No difference except in the wave pattern that in it's pulsing.

Even if there is some matter somewhere that has no direct connection, it does not matter. It is still all interconnected. By the way, this applies across universes as well. What happens to a flea in this univerese affects all the other multitude of universes as well.

How can I say this? By definition.
