  • CGP gray: "an infinite nothing" So is the way of reality But I wonder if the universe sits next to others is there a unfathomable distance between the next group? If so do they align themselves in the shape of a galaxy? that is made of mostly nothing. Are these universe galaxies aligned in a "web" like the galaxies of our universe? In a shape that is mostly nothing.......
