Which has me wondering what the mathematical expression looks like to describe a "bottomless pit" - a void without end. I am sure infinity is in there somewhere.
I guess a 'bottomless pit' could be described as an infinite Riemann curvature tensor over a four-dimensional manifold. In laymen terms... think of the moon orbiting the Earth... it will never 'hit the ground' so to speak. (Although the moon is a bad example)

I know nothing about the flat earth argument... what is the hypothesis?

If anything... it looks to me like the universe might be some type of hypertorus[^]. I'm not a physicist so I am probably wrong.
