Imagine the universe as a cake

Perhaps we can imagine the universe as a cake, a gateau. Imagine it in a bakery completely stuffed with cakes. Cakes everywhere. High and low all over in the bakery. Every cake is a universe, and has many layers (perhaps infinate). Those layers inside the cake represent the parallel universes. The cake next to the other cake represent “the other” universes, with their own separating layers (parallel universes) and perhaps a different set of ingredients (laws of nature). Perhaps the bakery represents to universes what galaxies and universes means to stars. We can then go on with the analogy and imagine that there is another type of bakery beside the first one, and so on. Perhaps there is a whole block, a whole burrow, a whole city full of cake-bakeries. The city could be planet-wide, and that planet is located in the equivalent to a galaxy full of planet-wide city planets… That is a lot of cakes (and universes). Then we add time to the mix: We can only begin to imagine what happened in those bakeries, with those cakes 100 “years” ago, or 1000, or 1 million…

Of course the image is still static. Real universes with parallel universes is growing and probably also in the quantity of parallel universes. In every instance a parallel universe can be born…

When you’re done wrapping your mind around that image – a few questions. Is there something that represents the baker? Or the cake customer? 😉
