## Main Question or Discussion Point

I've wanted to ask this for a while since it has been confusing me for too long now... if our universe is infinite and nothing can possibly exist outside of it (other than a putative God although no one has an idea how that could be, since Kant proved quite a while ago that existence itself is entirely contingent on the spacetime continuum), then how can there be hidden 5-6-7-10-11 dimensions or an infinity of other infinite universes especially since an infinity can never be added to an infinity? Where would they reside if not in our infinite universe? This doesn't make any sense no matter how precise the math is. And so I must conclude that all the infinity of multiverses/megaverses/whatever is somehow embedded within our infinite universe and cannot exist outside of space-time (even the non-local wafefunction collapses within it together with it's "infinite minds and infinite world" scenarios). In fact, once we localize the infinity of what could/does exist courtesy of all the other infinite universes, it becomes much more easier to actually process all this without sliding into insanity.

Also, if there is an infinite number of infinite universes/multiverses/megaverses, then doesn't that make us even smaller specks of dust compared to the speck of dust that we are right now? Or maybe our universe is a speck of dust compared to the nested infinity that houses it all ad nauseam (but how is that possible after what i've written above?) It's all mind-boggling and terribly annoying because I can't fathom it.

And lastly, what about our birth? Do we come from nothing and suddenly become "embroiled" in this infinity of universes/multiverses/megaverses? That's the hardest part because I don't understand where does consciousness comes from (and I won't even go into the "why" category of questions lol)
