Is the Universe finite or infinite?

[Excerpt from TT: 2011-06-12]

[Oscar] Hey Mikeys =) I would like to know if the Universe is finite or infinite. And if it’s finite, what is beyond it(s borders)? And beyond the borders of that, etc.

[MEntity] We are still exploring this question, ourselves, but what we know is: from “within” a universe, it is infinite in terms of experiences and perceptions, much the way one might experience the inside of a mirrored sphere; that universes must be finite beyond experiences and perceptions that we can comprehend, because we know there are completely separate universes “stacked” around our own; that while there is a definitive, Physical, or densest, component to the universe, the degree to which it grows finer is still unknown to us; that, so far, we can compare the universe to the same spectrum that makes up any single consciousness: while there are physical counterparts, the emotional and intellectual dynamics that are in place to generate those physical counterparts are very difficult to quantify, and therefore, so are the borders of a universe, as we also do not know how to show the edges of a thought or an emotion.

To be more direct: we think the universe is finite, but exists within an infinity. Or put another way: what we know of as “the universe,” even in our delineation of all of its layers and planes, is but a counterpart of an even greater whole that we have yet to comprehend.
