BSOD indeed, Richard, heh. That's what I like about this stuff - you gotta hit ctrl-alt-del on your mind's computer after a while, hehe.

As far as I know, we don't know whether our universe is closed or open (bounded or unbounded). If our universe is closed, you cannot reach the 'edge' of the universe because it has no edge, like a 2-D creature living on an orange. Eventually you'd come back to where you started.

Also, which relativistic formula are you refering to when you say it pops up an infinity?

According to modern physics, anything that travels at the speed of light ***does not age.*** It is not affected by time. Photons do not age. The speed of light is the asymptote of cosmic velocity. The faster you move through space, the slower you move through time. If electrons move at the speed of light, they do not age, either.
