The edge of the Universe isn’t the end.

I’m Mesmerized… Guys this post is a long one but stay with me!!โ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ๐ŸŒน

Ya know what it is for me…I NEED to understand infinite. When we talk INFINITE, forever, triggers the word “recycle” in my mind. I immediately begin to ask myself WHERE does our universe end. Through intricate calculations using Astrophysics, Astrologists have determined that there could indeed be an ending to our universe BUT this “ending” would be located no closer than 46 BILLION LIGHT-YEARS from our own galaxy. (I know many Astrologists prefer Parsecs which is basically just working with a larger number of light-years- like 3.26 light-years-but those numbers go way over my head so I stick to the basic “distance of light traveled over a year” light-year)Now we already know that 1 light-year is about 5.9 trillion miles so let’s multiply 46,000,000,000 by 5,900,000,000,000 and what the flip is that number!
Well I’ll be I go again free falling into the whirlpool that is my unwavering fantasy of wonder.


Life allows people to experience things together. Do we enter and exit this life alone?? Or is it all one big energy-recycling-endless-infinite-journey that filters, renews, and resets itself using unfamiliar fabrics and new life evolving elements unknown to us simply because we can’t reach it. We are unaware of it. With that being said, let’s take a little journey into space and creation and recycled energy and see where we wind up.

Let us all load into my Cossey Cosmos Craft and ship out! (Cossey is my maiden name๐Ÿค—)

Shooting quickly past all our known planets, past the sun, exiting the Orion Arm building speed as we rocket past the outer rim of stars, and then launching ourselves out of the Milky Way Galaxy entirely. Let’s all wave as we bullet past the Wolf-Rayet Nebula, the stellar nurseries, and even past the FURTHEST known galaxy in our universe- MACSO647-JD. Now we are about 13.3 billion light-years away from our home which is already farther than our minds could ever comprehend. But still, we.aren’t.even.close. to the edge.

So let’s go ahead and take a wormhole. ZIPPING through the fabric of space using a glitch in dark matter it should only take about 300000 years if we are traveling 10x the speed of light. I hope you guys still trust me to steer the Cosmos Craft then!๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜†

OKAY! Entering wormhole! Tunneling through the universe, we are surpassing any sort of existing elements and the further we travel the more truth is revealed. All the way to the beginning such as metals, gases, rocks, ice, Carbon, all the way to the creator element itself-Hydrogen. We see it and keep going beyond. So far that all life creating molecules have been abandoned years ago. That’s right friends we’ve now surpassed the units of time. Suspended upon the Cesium atoms vibrations within every passing second we are frozen….non-existent to time.

Still funneling through space in our wormhole we are now zooming into a void of blackness as the light of our omnipresent universe dims behind us. Still traveling to the edge, we have reached darkness. A midnight created by matter so thick that we can park the Cossey Cosmos Craft, put on our space suits and actually walk the rest of the distance. However we’ll need flashlights because this void is dense and even our own hands can’t be seen.

Now, remember this is dark matter like we’ve never experienced. The closer we get to the edge of the universe the thicker the dark matter. Let’s keep walking๐Ÿฆถ๐Ÿฆถ Now our footsteps are getting heavy..but not from gravity. A new weird substance..We wade through it like sludge…. So thick it has actually taken shape of a solid.

Friends!! We are here. We may be a little old and frail but we have made it to the edge of the universe!!! To a massive black realm. Resembling sheets hanging from a ceiling buried in the oily sludge. Its own pull, keeping the entire mold, universe, intact.

Now we DIG.

I shove my hands deeply in, but then pause and watch as each of you bury yourself into the sludge. No goodbyes, no questions anymore. Just leaving. And as each of you go, the hole in the wall closes quickly swallowing you inside and I’ll dig quickly for you but you’re gone…pulled through…

Now it’s my turn. I begin my dig. Into the black. Into the edge of the universe……

I’m swallowed whole. In a bubble enclosed in darkness. I’m panicking, breathing loudly…

echos short…

All of a sudden I’m shedding my space suit. My breathing apparatus has attached itself to the side of my bubble, linking us and binding a connection. Claiming me. My hands push against this force, this sac.ย  My feet kick rapidly. I keep moving.. not digging anymore but moving..hovering in some sort of….

Wait! I see light! I move, kick, scramble, quickly towards the light. I crawl…wiggling myself out of the darkness and now…suddenly.. my mind is new. Unaware of where I’ve been. Unaware of the journey just taken. I’m the light. Paused in a warmth, still absent from time.. unaware but conscience..shaping into something new.

…. Dudu-dudu-dudu-dudu-dudu-dudu….

over and over in these newly assembled ears. Nebulas being traced on fingertips through stardust as I linger… untouched. Then! Out of nowhere a translucent wall! Alive! Muffled voices trapped inside.

All of a sudden I’m being pushed, pulled, forced out into a cold new air, handled and spun, washed and weighed. A familiar feeling but scary so I cry, scream! Hearing coos and cries. It’s all so familiar but so new.

Then gently cradled into the arms of a beating heart I’m quickly comforted by her embrace. Her heart, that through the work of the cosmos was created, has now through the same recycled energy, recreated me. But as I’m held in these arms, gazing into these loving eyes of a beautiful new mother admiring cosmic perfection, the universe grants me one last moment and in her eyes I see everything that I once was.

I see my face for the last time- my birth-my home-my husband-my children-my parents- my sisters-my tears-my loves-my music-my art-my death-MY LIFE. And then….LIGHT. A BURST.

Forgotten…. but not far……

I am never gone, but I’m never me again after death.

Now a new person, who in random moments throughout this new life will tap into emotions felt by someone who lived before this “new existence” …..but by death, an omnipresent universe and energy, it has and will continue to connect, spark, recycle, renew, and relive.

We are never too far away even at the edge of the universe.

The edge of the universe isn’t the end, by recycled energy, we will live again.


My creation Fantasy.

Thanks for reading you guys! Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!!

  1. Wowwwww.. Thank you for sharing the story of โ€œcreationโ€ in a rewind fashion. Itโ€™s neat to think on all that we would have to pass to ever get to an edge. Even cooler is the idea that we may never be gone, simply recycled. Very intriguing to ponder these ideas, thank you again for taking us there.

  2. wow!!! um…can i have some of whatever you were smoking? lol
    this reminds me of the movie, 2001 a space odyssey. (one of my favs)
    my understanding is the galaxy and all matter is moving away from the area of where it all began, very very fast. would we be able to move faster than what is moving away from us? also, i dont think a flashlight would work in the blackness of matter since all light and matter is being absorbed. but then im try to put logic where logic does not exist.
    thanks for taking us on the journey of beyond what our minds can comprehend. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you for reading Buddy!๐Ÿ˜€And of course you can, the more the merrier!๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ JK A Space Odyssey. I’ll watch it!! And yes, I love space talk even if a little irrational. Also, you’re actually exactly right because basically at that point you’re in a black hole and how insane that something is so powerful it’d immediately drain a flashlight. Just nothing-ness. CRAZY! Thanks for stopping by!


  3. Very cool. You got space squirrels dear! Chomp on this little tidbit. Voyager one was launched in 1979. It travels 38,000 miles per hour and after 40 years it has travelled 19 light hours! At its current trajectory it will come close to To the nearest star in the Orion constellation in 40,000 years.
    I loved your idea tonight. Maybe so….

    1. That is SOOOOOOO awesome!!! 40,000 years…just insane. To think it has been up there this whole time…just floating.. soaring.. geeze 38,000 miles an hour! And I know Jim, The space squirrels live here.๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you so much for reading and who knows right…โœจโœจโœจ

  4. Wow!!! Wow and wow!!!! This post is amazing… I love the thought process behind this. The fact that nothing is infinite and that everything has an ending. Even the universe, Judy like our lives but reborn to be something or someone else. This is the corner stone of the thinking around creation. Amazing Steph… Keep the posts coming ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Awesome Simon!!!!! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!!! You and Jim (another crazy thinking blogger up there in the comments) inspired my thinking process for this one. Isn’t it so exciting to ponder the Beautiful possibilities of existing. The fact that we are here by such chance only leaves so many options about where the universe will take us through death. Maybe a whole new journey. Thank you for reading my sci-fi blog!!๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜† Have a wonderful evening/night Simon!!!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€


  5. Oh wow! Some space trip we had! I felt Iโ€™m in โ€œInterstellarโ€!one of my favorite movies
    Regarding numbers, you lost me at โ€œletโ€™s multiplyโ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ not my strength point
    Loved the concept and the flow and I could really imagine the entire journey
    Great share ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ

And I may have been a little delirious from lack of sleep when writing this.๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ It’s always been my own like take on recycled energy so I thought I’d share! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you for stopping by!!โ™ฅ๏ธ

  6. Reblogged this on Planet Simon and commented:
    This is another great post from Steph of the Irresponsible Blogger. What lies at the edge of the universe?

    What lies at the very end of creation and is it the end? It’s inspiring!
