# If The Minecraft World Is Infinite How Does The Sun Rotate Around It

What is the meaning of life? What happens after we die? And more recently, If a Minecraft world is infinite, how does the sun travel around it?Contrary to popular belief, the Minecraft world is actually infinite, in the sense that a single seed can theoretically generate an infinite world. It’s impossible to travel more than 29,999,994 blocks in any direction (and I don’t think you can set the worldborder any higher), but the world generation doesn’t stop there – you can go to the “edge” of the world and see the world go on far past the border.It is also known that the Minecraft world is flat, not a sphere or cube. We know this because the gravitational force is constant no matter how high you go, which is true for infinite flat worlds (with thickness) but not with a sphere or cube.Something else interesting is that no matter how high you go, the sun stays the same size. You’d think that if the sun were a certain distance from the overworld then it would appear bigger as you moved closer. Furthermore, the sun does go down over the horizon without (as far as we know) moving through the overworld.Therefore, we have reached the conclusion that the sun is infinitely far away from the Minecraft world – so infinitely far away that it goes beyond the infiniteness of the overworld. Though we have a problem – how can an infinitely far object have any apparent size? For instance, if you were to travel further and further away from our sun, it would become smaller and smaller until it eventually disappeared. This is true for any object of finite size, which leads us to the next conclusion – that the Minecraft sun is infinitely large.To summarize, the Minecraft sun is not a large ball in the sky – it is an infinitely large mass an infinite distance away from the overworld.
