This is a photo of just a small part of our sky, about 1/10th the visual diameter of the moon. All of those lights are individual galaxies, not stars. Click on the image to see a larger version, then just contemplate that each galaxy you see contains over 100 billion stars, and each star may have dozens of planets, with intelligent life on some of them. Our universe is immense indeed!
But there are an infinite number of universes, and don’t imagine that all universes have stars in them. There are universes without stars, galaxies and planets. Just as one small example, there are universes of flat parallel planes, stretching to infinity, populated by luminous beings who fly across and through the planes. There are no suns, for everything glows with an inner light.
I know this for an absolute fact. If one were to deny it, they would be limiting God, Who knows no limits.

Beyond the stars, a child lives
Oh luminous one of light,
Projected from this spinning Earth
Into the glittering night
And light years far the beings call
To bring her from her sleep
Into the galaxies of life
In golden space so deep
She floats from cradle to the veil
Beyond her milky face
And gives a whereness to the stars
Throughout all glowing space

“All physical systems have inherent Gödelian inconsistencies and therefore are not true or real.”
This idea appeared in my mind, and seemed to have some impetus so I am expressing it here. I actually don’t really know exactly what Gödel proved with his incompleteness theorems, I just have a feeling that they could be expanded to include the physical universe of matter and forces, and provide insight into the distinction between Truth and illusion in an idealist philosophy. So there you have it, in a nutshell.
