    Is there another Universe(s) beyond ours, or is the Universe really the 'all that is'?

    Yes, interesting question, does this universe end and another begin, or is it infinite, or does it just end, and if it does, what is on the other side, what does it end at, can we conceive something that has no begining and has no end?  Is this something that is going to end up with the answer, 42?

    If we don't define our terms, we'll just end up chasing our tails in circles; especially when everyone's opinions start pouring in.

    Universe: a concept that embodies matter (atoms) and space (nothing).

    It's capitalized because there is only one. We are referring to 'THE' Universe.
    Although 'the Universe' is a noun for the purposes of ordinary speech, it cannot be treated as a noun in the course of a scientific discussion. The Universe is not an object as it embodies a relation. Of course, atoms move with respect to others, but when space or 'the' Universe starts moving, watch out!....you've had too much to drink!

    To posit that there is another Universe, is to posit that space has a physical border separating Universes. Does space have a border which you can cross, like you can cut through a fence to escape a prison? If so, what is the border made from....steel, bricks, carbon, glass? And what is on the other side?
    Nature has no ontological contradictions. Only humans do!

    A lot of physicists nowadays are supporting the hypothesis that there are multiple universes, coming up with terms like multiverse and omniverse. So far we have no data to prove it one way or another, but it seems like we have some circumstantial info to point us in that direction. I find it fascinating.

    This video is an hour long about how our universe formed from nothing, how it will more or less end. Amazing stuff. (somewhat unrelated to the multiverse idea, but if you're into this kind of stuff, it's really cool)
