Our friends on the right, however, sometimes display the behavior of a salient being trapped in a moebius loop of inanity.

Projected Universe

A team of physicists has provided some of the clearest evidence yet that our Universe could be just one big projection.

They have numerically confirmed, perhaps for the first time, something we were fairly sure had to be true, but was still a conjecture — namely that the thermodynamics of certain black holes can be reproduced from a lower-dimensional universe,” says Leonard Susskind, a theoretical physicist at Stanford University in California who was among the first theoreticians to explore the idea of holographic universes.

A long-winded explanation (for those who so desire the same) is to be found HERE.

And, there is no reason that the universe could not be a toroidal projection - with neither beginning nor end.
