If the universe is infinite, are there planets made out of swiss cheese?

No, it's too runny.

But maybe if there were an infinite number of universes.

No, only dutch cheese :)

Space is infinite(boundryless), matter is not.

Bald assertion.

If f is defined on all of R, is there an x such that f(x)=0?

#### planck

Not swiss cheese. Cheese isn't dense enough to withstand the energy emitted by its sun. Maybe in another universe where the laws of physics are different.

What a planet though, all you need is your own bread and ham. Yummmm.

#### Jimmy Snyder

No. Moons are made of cheese. That pretty much proves that the universe is infinite. Planets are made of baloney. As Neils Bohr said, if this doesn't make you hungry, you don't understand it.

nope, but after reading your question i made myself a sandwich.

Only if somewhere there exists a process for planet formation via cow glands.

isn't that ordinary galactic formation?

#### magpies

There probably is a race of beings so bored they made this a reality.

Wait a second, if there were an infinite number of universes in a multiverse, then doesn't it hold that there are an infinite number of universes made of swiss cheese, in an infinite number of configurations, most of which are currently inconceivable to us?

Oh wait no... If P=0, then even among infinite universes 0 would be made of Swiss Cheese. My bad. But it does hold that if P>0, number of universes made of swiss cheese = infinite.

Perhaps there is an infinite number of planets made out of swiss cheese in a weird multi-verse. Also, then, similar with bread and ham planets.
When these universes collide, we have lunch!

In any event, an extreme multi-verse provides for limitless possibilities(even standard physics laws can change) however, I doubt that some would exist in any stable form.

Do we already know for certain that existence is not relational and would there be instantaneous, non-local influences in an infinite universe?

Otherwise, if the universe is obejctively real, mind-independent and infinite, then there must be planets made out of french cheese.
