Super Position In Space Time Geometry

When I was two or three years old my mother had a dressing table with a fixed mirror at the back and a mirror on either side of the fixed one which could be swivelled to any required angle. Whilst I was still small enough I would sit in front of the fixed mirror and swivel the side mirrors behind me to form a triangle of mirrors around me. There I would sit for hours contemplating the nature of infinity, and of infinity in trinity. And this is the way of the universe. If you pass beyond the edge of the universe you enter a multiple reflection of everything behind you, and indeed of everything beyond you, and as the light reflected between the mirrors is truly infinite and never reaches an end, so it is with the universe.
