Is the universe **finite** & **without boundaries**?

Take the surface of the earth.

We have spatial lines of latitude & longitude.

The lines of latitude have no beginning of end, we just go around in circles.

The lines of latitude are finite in distance though.

Now the lines of longitude have a beginning & an end.

We can perhaps say that they have points of infinity at the poles.

But in reality we can go over the poles & all the way around; again in circles.

The spatial dimension perpendicular to the lines of latitude, in reality, has no beginning or end & is finite.

Now the big leap.

The spatial dimensions of the universe could be similar, i.e. finite without beginning or end.

If time is just another dimension, could it be that **time is also without beginning or end & finite?**

Is the Big Bang best viewed not as the beginning of time, but like the lines of longitude on a globe?

**Struggle**

Can we say that **Life** struggles against **entropy** (to maintain its **form**)?

It struggles to survive.
