As pictures of the universe go, yours
looks as compelling as the next.
Nietzsche's picture of "eternal
recurrence" precedes your question about
infinite regress by a century. But what
does time matter to a hyper-dimensional
volume, as long as the Net has enough
bandwidth to catch these fallen stars?
