Infinite plane + sun?
« on: March 05, 2019, 11:59:02 AM »
I am curious if the infinite plane would mean that most of that plane is in pitch black darkness. I mean, if the sun and moon are "circling" over the earth, that means they only light what we know as the current world map. And then we are lucky that they hover exactly over us and not somewhere else. How does that work?

Yes; though others like Samuel Shenton have suggested other livable areas might exist on the plane. Without seeing another sun though, it would be hard to support this proposition.

Ah cool, I'm gonna read up on that, seems interesting.  ;)

You might have trouble finding it, even in our library. He talked about it in his lectures however, and our gallery from the Shenton collection has a poster depicting this.

Heh -- It's somewhere between "nobody knows", "there's an ice wall", and "You can't go there"

Nope. But hey, what do I know.

It would be a dark place which gets colder as you move further away from the sun until it's so cold that all the air freezes to a solid so then all of our air leaks over to fill the vacuum and also freezes until all of our air is gone and we die.

Unless you believe in the Universal Heater which keeps the infinite plane nice and toasty.

Given your hypothesis doesn't match everyday experience (we can, in fact, still breathe), and I haven't seen a FEer make that same assertion, I think it is safe to assume that the straw man you have created here is inaccurate.
Your future will be filled with multi-legged scavengers, no bigger than a clenched fist.

Absolutely, we can still breath, we can't see an edge wall thousands of miles tall...that's the edge wall theory dead and buried.

Or a geothermic one which I believe was suggested by Samuel Rowbotham when studying underwater current temperatures.

Or, that both ideas are made up and lacking in evidence. It's not like Rowbotham was a trained oceanographer, I don't think messing around in drainage ditches qualifies him for anything in that area.
