The totality of existing things, including the Earth, our solar system, our galaxy, and everything else throughout space. No one is completely sure how large the universe is. Some people believe that it is infinite. Some believe it has a beginning and an end. Currently, there are many, many things that we don't know about the nature of the universe. What shape is it? What color is it? Are there other forms of intelligent life out there, or are we lousy humans it? How was it created, and how will it end? Was it created by God or the Big Bang? How old is it? Was the birth of Pauly Shore just random bad luck or proof that the universe actively hates us? We may never know all the answers...

Buckminster Fuller always called the universe "Universe". Interestingly, the universe always called Buckminster Fuller "Bucky". No one know why.
