In order for something to exist, it must exist in a place. We can describe one dimensional space, which can only consist of a line. Two dimensional space, which can consist of a plane. And three dimensional space, which consists of all possible areas. There is nowhere possible that is not encompassed by the concept of infinite three dimensional space. However, space does not exist. It is actually nothing, and merely a construct in which other things have potential TO exist.
There is also the concept of time. Time also does not exist, but must necessarily, by definition, be infinite. Time is relevant, in the sense that you can only describe it or experience it from a given position. One must, in order to measure time, have a location and a means of describing distance in three dimensions... and also a standard measure of motion upon which they can compare other motions. For example, the orbit of the planet around the sun, or the rotation of the planet itself, or even the orbit of an electron around an atom.
Both space and time must be infinite, for if they were to be finite, then there must also exist a construct in which THEY exist, and that construct would follow this same logic. There are other things that do not exist, and are infinite, such as math and truth. Two plus two equals four, whether or not there are two things to add to any other two. All of these things; Space, Time, Truth and Math, do not exist. They are true, but do not by definition exist. Something that exists, MUST be finite. If the existing object were to be infinite, then it would not be discernible from anywhere that was not the same... and therefore would not exist; but rather fall in to the same category as space, time, truth and math. So, assuming that there are in fact things that DO exist, then we must attribute this to the idea that some things are NOT infinite, but rather finite.
As far as the science that I am aware of, we have only discovered one thing that exists and seems to be finite. There are theories of anti-matter, dark-matter, and all kinds of different ways in which this finite substance behaves, but from what I gather... Matter as we know it can be transformed into energy. Energy can be transformed into matter. Energy and matter can both exist in anti-states... and possibly also in "dark" states. Whatever we discover about this "matter/energy" that exists, we can say with certainty that it is finite, and it is all basically the same thing.
Then we come to the idea of consciousness and free will. It does not really make sense to me that consciousness would be a chemical or biological compound that only functions on specific arrangements of matter and energy. It does not, to me, seem like something that can be constructed or contained. Instead, I perceive consciousness to be a member of the first group... something that is infinite. Space, Time, Truth, and Math are themselves members of an infinite class: The Conscious. The Self aware. The Being.
As swarms of finite matter in an infinite universe during an infinite time... I believe it is not WE that are aware of our existence, but ALL of existence that is aware of itself.

I almost exclusively use Chrome as my browser, on a Windows 8.1 Lenovo... and until recently it was great.
Videos, however, no longer play in my G+ stream. Instead I get some broken image from the video, and a flash player error box partly surrounding it. The same thing works just fine on Firefox and IE.
Then, last week... Chrome no longer prints to our printers at the office. We have to use the "Print using system dialogue" option... otherwise it just prints blank pages (the preview looks fine, but blank pages come out.) This is a Chrome issue, not my computer.
And now, today... I cannot get in to Google+ without going to the 'apps' icon. I used to be able to click on my name, and it would go here. No longer.
Is Chrome getting worse? This is affecting all 28 machines at my office, as well as my Mac at home!
Really frustrating... but all the tech support people I contact say the answer is to use Firefox instead.
