So, I now understand based on things that I have read, and things that people on this forum have told me, that the universe if flat, must be infinite. My question is, when we look into the farthest reaches of space, we see a small, finite baby universe. How is this possible? The universe can be traced back to a point when it was 10^-33 cm small. Anything infinite begins infinite, from what I have always understood. What's going on, eh?
