Finite Brain, Infinite Consciousness

Can a finite Brain contemplate-Understand the value of Infinite. Infinity is outside consious direct experience.

Can You define Consiousness in Exact, Definitive Terms?, has anyone yet.

If measuring quantem particles changes the outcome of the measurement, Is
it also true that measuring Infinity changes or denies the outcome-measurement?

I Am That I am. I Think, Therefore I am.

2. An infinitesimal observer in a finite universe

3. An infinitesimal observer in an infinite universe

4. A finite observer in an infinitesimal universe

5. A finite observer in a finite universe

6. A finite observer in an infinite universe

7. An infinite observer in an infinitesimal universe

i simply do not understand the concept of finite.

everything is infinite. everything is in constant flux. a plastic ball is still constantly decaying, moving on the surface of the earth, being influenced by gravity etc. and will so until it meets its end, where it will merge with its surroundings and therefore not 'end' anyway.

beginning/end is a fallacy. if there was a big bang, there was no beginning in my opinion. if there was a beginning there would be time before, as the word beginning implies a linear implication of sequential time, something that is humanly constructed. :rolleyes:

Universe is finite or infinite its on us because Universe is finite if your measuring velocity is greater than speed of galaxy expanding. But now human measurement scale and speed is very small in comparision to expanding speed. so it is infinite fof us today.
