The truth is that we simply don't know what is at the end if the universe. We don't even know if there is an end to the universe. Scientist argue over almost every point about this area of science. Is the universe like a ball that just loops back on itself? Is it more like a flat plane that we could find the edge of? Is there more beyond that edge or is this all there is?

It's one of those questions that blows your mind. How can it have an end? But then again, how can it possibly be endless? It's impossible either way. What this tells us is that we, as finite human beings, do not have the capacity to understand the true nature of the universe . . . yet. It means that our way of thinking, our "rationality" is limited, although we like to think that rational, scientific thinking can answer all questions. There's something biggerthan us out there, and it knows the answer to questions like this.
