As to your question where from?
Any discreet localized nothing, being nothing in particular, is and remains nothing at all. And since there is everything, and not nothing, then
everything is everything already always now and forever. And so the real predicament we find ourselves in is that we already emersed in all that ever
was, is, and will be, even now. How then could we ever look for an end if we cannot find the beginning? Surely it is best then, if there is no escape,
that we place ourselves at the new beginning and again, as if for the first time, recognize that there is no beginning, and no end.
"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last."
~ The Reveletion of John
Edit: If anything, all indication is that it will "end" if there is to be any, in infinite complexification which by it's very nature is a never
ending process, and again a process that we find ourselves already deeply immersed in.
Maybe this is IT. Then again, there is always something new in store since novelty is the very fount of all creation.
Perhaps...at some point "we" will need a fresh start, while pretending to forget everything we'be already learned all along the way, except that
that's no longer generative of novelty and NEW creation.
Perhaps the purpose if there is one resides in the challenge of learning, without forgetting, and self remembrance without the narcissistic delusion
of mistaking outer, first impressions or images, with the deeper reality already bottled up within us. Perhaps, when in search of universal or
heavenly things, we need only consult our innermost being and discover the great truth which sets us free (from our subjective isolation chambers or
self imposed prison cells).
I think what we're lacking these days is simply put, an open mind and heart, because if learning and learning love is the 'name of the game' and if
"education" is discovering something already knowable, in potentia, then we are already in possession of the faculty for gnosis as felt experience, as
opposed to idle speculation or mere intellectual curiosity.
And if what I've come to discover is true IS true, which it is, then it's pointless to talk of the universe as some sort of entity separate from one's
self, even at the deepest level, because contained or imbedded at the deepest levels of our own mind/body spectrum, and spiritual experience resides a
representation of the whole kit and caboodle.
