Can we just say without beginning or end? Ageless?
And without beginning or end time wize -- ok (ie eternal)(eternal going back in time & eternal going forward in time).
One problem is that BBers might agree re infinite dimension wize -- koz i think that according to some BB theory if u travel in what u think is a straight line then u come back to where u started.
And another problem is that many of us don believe that there is such a thing as time -- time is an illusion (me)(Einstein)(others) -- hence the concept of eternal might be problematic.
Ageless. Hmmmm -- no, i dont agree -- i think that everything has an age, even if only an instant -- i think that ageless is a term used praps by theater critics etc not science.
You don’t believe in time but you believe in “age” for the universe? I distinctly remember a Thunderbolts video talking about the Universe being ageless, I can’t remember the exact one, could someone help, please? Maybe?
As for space, someone on these forums already talked about the universe being a closed space, a poincare sphere, like being in a mirrored cube, go to one side of the universe, you wind up on the other side.
