More on Universe(s)

I noted earlier that we did not know the shape of the universe (infinite? twisted?) nor whether there are many of them. But if can never know about them, it's irrelevant. Or is it?

It would seem that another  universe which, by definition, is completely invisible and intangible to us is totally irrelevant: we can forget about it. But if we bring God into our mental picture and in addition consider that we are in some part of God along with the denizens of other universes, then the universe is realised as a much greater concept.

(An addition at 30/05/2017:

“Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space” (Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)
