Some scientists today believe in the theory that space might actually wrap around itself. If you left earth and traveled for trillions and trillions of centuries at the speed of light you would find yourself approaching earth once again but from the opposite direction you left?

I think if we were somehow given the answers our human brains at this point of our development could not begin to comprehend.

My belief is that the universe is everything that contains matter and energy and everything that could be measured, and that there is a point where the leading edge of this universe is just expanding into empty space (faster than light), where there is literally nothing, just blackness. And since it is expanding faster than light, there is no life in this universe that could know what is beyond it, it's unreachable.

I believe that Space is infinite and goes well beyond the physical boundaries humans have given it, to include the Big Bang. It's so vast our minds cannot comprehend it using human mathematics. I think anything is possible in Space but we are millions of years from understanding it all.

"Where does space end and begin" ? As far as I know, it is all space, everything. Earth is just inside a bubble orbiting in space. I think asking where does it end is similar to asking what is the largest number... 1-2-3-4-5-6-7 Is there an end number in mathematics ?
