what are your thoughts on the theory of infinite r/p(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

if you dont know what it is,

Infinite regression is the idea that if you split an electron (or whatever elementary particle) you get an even more elementary particle, if you split this particle you will get a more elementay particle and so on.

Infinite progression is the idea that our universe is just an elementary particle in an even vaster universe which, in turn, is itself an elementary particle and so on...

This idea has always intrigued me since i was a kid. (not that i am any less of a punk kid now)

P.S. sorry if "Progression" is the wrong word, but you get the idea!
