Ask Ethan: What does the edge of the Universe look like?

“If the universe is finite in volume, then is there a boundary? Is it approachable? And what might the view in that direction be?”

When we look at the nearby Universe, it looks a lot like we, ourselves, appear. Nearby galaxies are similar in structure to our own; the stars inside them have the same properties, masses, ages and distributions as our own. But as we look to greater and greater cosmic distances, we find that more distant galaxies appear younger, bluer, smaller, and less evolved. If we go back beyond a certain point, there are no more galaxies at all. What’s going on? Does this mean that, if we go back far enough, there’s an edge to the Universe? And if so, what does that mean? What lies beyond it? And what would someone living on that edge see and perceive? It turns out that there is a boundary to our Universe, but not in space.

Instead, there’s a boundary in time, and once we understand that, we can finally understand what the true answer is. Come find out what it’s all about on this week’s Ask Ethan!

Do you have any recommendations for definitive resources on the topic of creating and maintaining healthy boundaries (both personal and interpersonal) that you may have come across as a therapist? I'm wanting to learn more about how (from what I've read about boundaries so far) healthy boundaries with others help you better know who you are as a person; how it fosters self-image and self-identity. I appreciate anything you could pass along on the subject. Thank you for your time. :)

This is a good starter article. There is not a “definitive resource” - most books on the subject have pros and cons like anything else. The cavet I want to throw in here is that some of the books that are considered really good on the subject were written in the early 90s-00s. Some of the language around gender, relationships and sexuality can be anachronistic and very binary.  

You may want to give Boundaries and Relationships: Knowing, Protecting and Enjoying the Self by Charles Whitfield. Where to Draw the Line by Anne Katherine might be another option. Good luck!

It’s okay to change your yes to a no. Yes’s aren’t permanent. They’re something we choose again and again, each and every day. Something we have the right to recall and reconsider as soon as saying yes no longer feels conducive to our wellbeing and happiness. It d.oesn’t matter whether you said yes to a job, a date, a relationship, sex, a favor to a friend, a social endeavor, or a vow of silence — you don’t ever have to commit to something that forces you to compromise who you are and what feels right; especially if it’s something you agreed to under pressure, intimidation, or force. Changing your yes to a no might make people angry. It might hurt their feelings, cause them to see you as a flake, and result in lost connections. But if saying no means staying true to yourself, honoring your feelings, and making self-care a priority, it’s worth it. You are worth it. Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.

If you don’t send your significant other nudes, inappropriate pictures, sexual texts, or aren’t very sexual in real life, you still don’t deserve to be cheated on.

If you don’t send your significant other nudes, inappropriate pictures, sexual texts, or aren’t very sexual in real life, you still don’t deserve to be cheated on.

I repeat

If you don’t send your significant other nudes, inappropriate pictures, sexual texts, or aren’t very sexual in real life, you still don’t deserve to be cheated on.

A loving partner will respect you and your boundaries. Don’t ever settle for less.
