This is possibly the greatest unexplained mystery of all. Mind blowing to say the very least.

  • If you want to know what it will be like when you die, just remember back to what it was like before you were born.

Yep, no center. But I don't really find it that mind blowing, sorry Lilly, Phil. :geek:

"... there can be no certainty of the last Conclusion, without a certainty of all those Affirmations and Negations, on which it was grounded, and inferred. ... And therefore if a man should talk to me of ... Immateriall Substances; or of A free Subject; A free-will; or any Free, but free from being hindred by opposition, I should not say he were in an Errour, but that his words were without meaning; that is to say, Absurd. ..."[sic] Thomas Hobbes - Leviathan (1651)

I've worked with a few lead singers that could easily argue that 'they' are in fact, the center of the universe. :D

Well that knocks the 'Big Bang' theory on the head, anyway!

if the big bang happened it must be expanding equally in all directions so I guess no one will ever know, but I'll bet some "clever" scientist will come up with a theory..as far as I'm concerned its my bed..

(2) try your second best, ........if that dont work
(3) give up you aint gonna win
