I suppose so. Every theory has a level of plausability.
we know that some things called theory have no plausibility.
But, perhaps in an infinite universe it might?
infinite number of people winning the lottery, maybe, but there's an infinitely larger infinity of people not winning it
Again interesting, but I'm still of the position that infinity by definition precludes the possibility of any infinite set being bigger than another infinite set.
I may be way off but I think it's like asking which is heavier, a ton of lead bricks or a ton of feathers? Sure a lead brick is heavier than a feather but a ton is a ton regardless of what the material is.
Of course if we had an infinite number of lead bricks and an infinite number of feathers we would know that each brick is heavier than a feather, and thus on weight an infinite number of lead bricks will be infinitely heavier than an infinite number of feathers Therefore making one infinite set bigger than the other in a sense, unless the presence of infinity makes the idea of knowing any weight beyond the individual item impossible and thus cannot be spoken of.

One where weight is inconsequential.
The vacuum of space, water, for example.
Therefore, if there is no weight to anything then nothing can travel to infinity because there is no infinity, because there is no weight to anything and so does not exist.
Consequently, if there is no infinity, then there is no such thing as time. Furthermore if there is no time, then how can it wind down, run out. End.
It cannot end because it has never begun and if has never begun for that reason. Cannot exist.
What is the weight of your dreams? Are they real or an illusion?
