Which has me wondering what the mathematical expression looks like to describe a "bottomless pit" - a void without end. I am sure infinity is in there somewhere.
I guess a 'bottomless pit' could be described as an infinite Riemann curvature tensor over a four-dimensional manifold. In laymen terms... think of the moon orbiting the Earth... it will never 'hit the ground' so to speak. (Although the moon is a bad example)
I know nothing about the flat earth argument... what is the hypothesis?
If anything... it looks to me like the universe might be some type of hypertorus[^]. I'm not a physicist so I am probably wrong.
I saw a guy on TV some years ago. He claimed that the earth was of "infinite mass", which explained the illusion that it appeared round when observed from here. No idea what he though of the pictures from space.
