I am changing nothing read what my post says before commenting on it

I said, "it is my guess"

No one knows for sure if the universe is finite or infinite.

How could a finite universe ever begin to evolve if it is caught up n the infinite gravity of a singularity that stops time, how?
How does it stop time? your speculating , it might slow down time ? From nothing came this universe thats what we know at this moment.If your speculating i could say the creator who lives outside of time created time for us to live in .I cold speculate its all wrong and we are on the otherside of a black hole .We vibrated into this universe by god blowing his horn .Knowledge at the moment tells us time started with the BB.With that in mind the universe is finite in time and size.

@Whoever,
... I'm not quite sure I understand ... if a system of categories is an inventory of all that "is", and what is prior to space and time does not fall within a category, doesn't that amount to saying that what is prior to space and time is not*? ... and if so, is that truly an assertion that what is prior is not, or is it just a negative comment on the logical viability of existing systems of categories? ... and what of dynamic categories (process metaphysics) which seem to be able to avoid certain problems that appear to be inherent to substance categories?

(* I hesitate to call it "nothing", as some might consider that a category!) ...

Its our old problem,comprehending nothing .Its where the gods live ,where our feeble minds crumble and disintegrate..Can we ever measure outside of our universe the great unknown..If we only had time..
