    Do we consider intelligent aliens to be “person”? Because the universe is also infinite AFAIK

        Do they? There’s broad consensus on the size of the observable part, but what’s beyond that is surely more speculation than science.

            I’m pretty the curvature of the universe has actually been measured to be very close to 0, within margin of error, which would suggest an infinite universe. (It doesn’t prove it by any means, though. The curvature could just too small to measure.)

            However, the observable universe is indeed finite, due to the speed of light being finite.
