what i find absolutely intriguing is the very possiblity that the

possiblity -- the universe was either open or closed, and open
looked more likely ...
I've been watching this thread for some time and my ignorance of these
matters is driving me crazy - what is meant by 'flat' in this context? My
immediate reaction to the adjective 'flat' is 'nearly two dimensional'.
Certainly I have the wrong idea - given a >2 dimensional universe.
And, I would love to hear more about,
'what eerie odds would be overcome if such were really the case.'
Please enlighten me.
