How big is the universe? Perhaps it's so huge that we can't really comprehend it. Is our entire universe just one in an infinite ensemble of universes? What’s the nature of all reality? Is there meaning behind the cosmos? Is there purpose to the laws that govern it?
The following videos shed light on the nature of cosmology by focusing on four different points of view held by some of the world’s leading thinkers. Use the ideas covered in these videos as starting points for discussions, critical thinking and debates.
Questions to ask include:
- How vast is the cosmos?
- Is the universe infinite?
- Could there be multiple universes (multiverse)?
