Except for one thing. If you have been reading Siegel and other scientists on this subject, it is not possible to “to view beyond the bounds of our currently observable universe”. No information can travel faster than the speed of light. That condition is what determines the bounds of the observable universe.
There is no view, there is no possibility of testing, of experimenting, of measuring beyond the bounds set by the speed of light. Nothing can be known beyond that bound; we can simply have faith in our conjectures.
Confidence, in this context, is just a measure of the strength of one’s faith.
