    If you add black holes and string theory into the equation, the edges of the universe are 2 dimensional reflections of the inside of the universe. Holographs. Kind of like a two dimensional map of a three dimensional plane - a mapped globe, for instance.

    The universe is forever expanding. There is no end and no beginning.

    I cannot say the same for us, because our galaxy is apparently being pulled into Andromeda, a neighboring galaxy's black hole. There is also a possibility that our universe is in fact, in a black hole.

    The possibilities are endless and we will never know the answer.

    But I think you should all be more concerned with the concept of time. Where does it start and where does it end? I believe that like the universe, time is infinite. But both the universe and time were created at the same time. I think it's all quite fucking beautiful.
    Between that cigarillo and sticking my finger down my throat to see if I could DT, I feel like puking RN.

    I could still remember how shocked I was when I was explained about the relativity of time.

    The best part of it was reaching (steps taken to reach) that conclusion.



    Time is so very confusing. But not as confusing as the universe.

    My world begins and ends with me.
    The world, presumably, follows the same logic, as far as I can tell.

    "Created" is perhaps the wrong word, otherwise I can't quite wrap my head around it. One cannot exist without the other...

    That it because the sea surface bends under your vision.

    What is real, the bend of the sea surface or your vision.?
    They are both real.
    Terra is finite and has no edge.

    When you look up at the skyline the horizon greets you there, too.
    You see only a fraction of the skyline.
    Universe is finite and has no edge.
    Good points.

    In Wildcat's explanation does one end up at the same place?

    But what is above the curve? Wildcat assuming your theory meant ending at the same place and taking the bend in to account, I have to ask what is above the bend.

    One cannot take the bend explanation since it explains the observer on the edge or on top of the universe.

    We are not at the edge of the universe. We are inside it. At least that is how I see it. So if there is a bend upwards or downwards what happens if one goes in a straight line?

    If visuals are used it would be easier to understand.
