The Universe Is Infinite Over Infinite Time

If our universe is infinite in the sense that everything which could exist does exist, then we're in trouble. But if rather it is infinite in the sense that is limitless, that we have a finite amount today but there is no limit on the future, then we are fine. The universe is expanding onto infinity, there are no limits on the future, but not everything that could be is now present (however, over an infinite amount of time there is a possibility that anything could happen eventually).

So the universe is infinite over infinite time; however, we have not had infinite time, so the universe is finite up to the finite amount of time we have had so far.
