    I remember something I used to think about was how everything in Dr. Seuss' 'The Grinch' takes place within a single snowflake. Literally a whole universe inside a single flake falling from the sky, and the people (or 'Whos' within it obviously have no idea.

    Made me wonder if our universe could be a similar construct. Could everything we know exist inside something that's the equivalent of a snowflake or a grain of sand in another, much larger world?

    Fun but weird to think about...

    One reaction to the idea that we appear to be living in a 'finely-tuned' universe (i.e., the physical constants are just right such as to support life) is that there may be a vast multiverse of different universes, with each universe having varying values for its fundamental constants. One conception of this idea imagines each universe as a bubble, each adrift amidst a sea of other bubbles.
