I was having a discussion the other day with a close friend of mine and we started talking about the universe. Which eventually led me to the question as to why the universe is called well universe. Specifically, I wanted to know, why is there a uni - meaning one - at all? And, for the life of me I can't remember exactly why, but we came to reason that it was wrong to give it a numerical value at all. Anyway, I was wondering if you could tell me of why they named it the 'universe' specifically and not something else or if you could give me a link to something that might?
