    I sometimes listed to Stockhausen "Helicopter String Quartet" when driving. Could monkeys really produce music like this?

    You know it as long as the observation is in accordance with the theory.

    Wake up well before dawn at a wildlife refuge this winter and listen to the morning chorus.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    An infinite number of monkeys would make for way too much monkey poop.

    (And having been shat upon in the rainforests of Costa Rica, this is not a good thing. Fortunately the ocean was right there and a good swim took care of everything.)
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Infinite shots

    You can acheive something if you add little 'knowledge' to those finite monkeys with finite cameras.
    Well, technically if you really mean infinite then eventually every possible combination of the 2.5 x 10^1089 elementary particles in the observable universe will present. Then repeat.

    They would produce far better music than that:

    If the universe is not infinite, what is beyond the 'end'? Surely there must be something there.

    Look for the definition of Universe. It doesn't mean everything. It means everything we know about. We can't define what we don't know about or don't have the mathematical tools to predict. i.e. Nobody has a clue about what exists or not outside of the universe and just because we think something must exist outside the universe doesn't make it part of the universe until we can prove it and just because we don't know about it doesn't make the universe infinite.
    Simple answer for you is that because the universe is expanding it should be bleeding obvious it isn't infinite and there is something outside it for it to expand into but we don't know what.
