Dimension scale loop (for the lack of better term)

    This is a crazy idea I've been thinking about for a long time, but never heard anyone bring it up, until I tried a video game called "Everything" (it's pretty awesome). In this game, you take the role of different objects in our universe and of different sizes, starting from molecules and up to galaxies and beyond, while listening to a renowned philosopher Alan Watts.

    You can scale up in size, jumping from being a stone, a tree, a continent, a planet, a star, a solar system, a galaxy, and when you scale up even more, you suddenly find yourself becoming a plank length theoretical particle. Then you continue scaling up until you become a hydrogen atom, a molecule, a bacteria cell, a cockroach, a stone, a tree... the cycle goes on.

    Scientists have long theorized that our three dimensional space may be looped on itself, much like a flat surface of a planet. That Universe is finite and if you go one way in a straight line long enough, you will eventually end up in the same point in space due to space-time curvature.

    What if the same applies to scaling in size? What if you "zoom out" long enough, way past the galaxies and galaxy filaments, you will end up in the micro world of a particular point in our space time. And vice versa, by "zooming it" way past the plank constant you will eventually reach the macro space of our universe. So that universe is completely looped on itself in a space-time, both in three dimensions, in time, and in scale.

    Is this too crazy and impossible to even think about?

    Yes, it is silly and this does not belong in the science section.

    Oh, and it has already been discussed:

    What they discussing in the video is a notion that there is no limit to how small you can go, so every atom of our universe may contain a tiny universe of it's own.
    But, people think that there is no limit in space in how far you can go, but still theorize that space-time may be finite. So, can scaling both ways also be finite? Are there any theories on that?

    Or you can't possibly go smaller than plank's constant?

    Two short planks' constant?

    Me :- Comic book around 60 years ago

    Character in said comic book - from memory a space theme
    "What if we (referring to the Universe) are just a speck on the back leg of a flea on the back of very large dog?"

    Perhaps time to update the comic book storyline. Add in some known physics and perhaps a young child will read something, along the same lines, stir curiosity enough that the thought sticks in the brain 60 years
