Universe has no end because

Recommended Posts

If we took two lines leaving a single point and then some where in far distance the outer sides of each would come together. Could this be how the universe is racing away because its pull itself into itself in the distance place?

Your question is about the shape of the universe itself. Here are a few of the top ideas: https://phys.org/news/2019-11-universe-rethink-cosmos.html

Now our new paper, published in Nature Astronomy, has come to a conclusion that may unleash a crisis in cosmology—if confirmed. We show that the shape of the universe may actually be curved rather than flat, as previously thought—with a probability larger than 99%. In a curved universe, no matter which direction you travel in, you will end up at the starting point—just like on a sphere.

If it is positively curved the parallel lines will obviously converge at distance.
Expansion has the effect of 'smoothing out' curvature; curvature does not cause, or give the illusion of, expansion.
The measured curvature is exceedingly small, almost flat, indicating that the Universe may be much, much larger than the observable universe.

Can't access the actual paper but it would be interesting to see the error in the curvature data, INow.
