Ok today in class me and my friends were debating on wether The end of time exists........

Friends argument: The end of time will come like every other day. Time is a measure of space and since our world is just one dimmension it can very well end. If you figure other universes run parallel, skew, Colinear, perpendicular, so with different choiced events occur another dimmension crosses over each involve one of many different outcomes like this line for example:

so in conclusion, every major decision made spawns different dimmensions.

My argument: The end of Time dosen't exist, Time is a measure of linear distance across infinate space, If space is infinate than it can't end. So thereby stating Time won't end because it is a measurment, no matter how tangible of intangible it is it exists, and it can't end.

Time and the world are very different things.

Technically, nothing ends, because effects echo forever.

I am not even sure what this discussion is supposed to be about, no offense meant. Is it time (my actual guess)? Space (also valid)? Alternate dimensions (actually universes. Dimension(s) has(ve) to do with length, width, depth, linear time, etc.)?

What would help is an actual logic based argument, rather than a few sentences that make illogical jumps. The original premise of the "Friends argument" (which is the spawning of alternate universes) does not adequately link to the end of time. The question I ask is: How does the creation of another universe that breaks off from another universe in the form as a choice make it necessary that the end of time "... will come like every other day"? There is nothing linking that premise to the conclusion. If there is, and I have just missed it, please tell me.

However, based on the premise that this is a discussion about the end of time, I have to say that there may be an end. This is a great example of how time can end. Effectively, you neither have life (no more chemical reactions), nor any kinetic energy left to run a clock to measure time. This is only one example (a very possible one), but is not the only one.

So by the view of this diagram, you're saying that each decision made a universe even though only ONE was chosen? :|

And I hate to say this, but your argument seems much less powerful with all those spelling and grammar mistakes.

Interesting thought.

1. If this is a discussion upon something such as alternate universes and their viability, then we're only speculating for everything that we can observe and deduce are, in fact, part of our universe.

2. Also, naturally, dubbing alternate universes as being independent of our universe would be demeaning the word universe, no?

3. Dimensions aren't realms of existence, but rather planes of existence.

4. There are no other 'possible' decisions that could have been made. The decisions that have been made are the *only* ones that allow for a stable universal flow.

5. Theories on the end of time cannot be proven.

I don't really get the proposition, as Forrestfire had noted.
