The known universe is supported and embedded in a sub-dimensional space that is invisible to us at the moment. The law's of physics in this arena are different to our own. Dimensional matter and energy fields are completely different, as too the concepts of velocity and distance. The boundaries of the universe are basically surfing on an energy wave that imparts additional energy into the fabrication of the physical universe, similar to a maglev train. The question is how far will our universe stretch and what happens if it decides to roll back? As to size, quite small in comparison to the interlaced sub-dimensional space needed to support the known universe. A physical number would not be understandable and it really needs something like the MACH numbers for the speed of sound. So if I take 1 trillion light years as a suitable measurement and call it 1 LACH, then I think you would be talking about at least 45 LACHs which is quite a way but that is only to the edge of the universe.

Question: I know that you've talked about the Big Bang Background Radiation before however i'm still a bit perplexed as to how they did/can measure it (WMAP)? So for example lets look at a pond of water and lets say that i drop a rock in the center of it and so in the drop zone where it landed the ripple or shockwaves from it will traverse in all directions to the edge of the pond and will eventually disappear. So my perplexion is that when the Big Bang occured wouldn't the background radiation shockwave also had traversed from the Planck Epoch out towards the known edge of the universe and should had eventually disappeared as well as akin to the 'rock dropped into the pond'' example and if so then how can they measure something that has long dispearsed?

So what am i not understanding here?
Here's a high resolution picture of WMAP>>>>>
