Fold space 100 times can step from one side of universe to the other.
Try with piece of paper, also may need calculator

I am puzzled by the dimension of 'space' working back from the supposed age of the universe I make it 0.2mm, is that what you had in mind?

I think the maximum number of times a piece of paper has been folded so far is 12 done by Britney Gallivan.

Try it with some A4, you will be lucky to get to 7 folds.

With what machine do you fold space? Between the pages of a book?

(I didn't know that BT had interests and IP addresses in Japan. This moderator is puzzled.)
