Also head-bending.  Best reasoning at this point is to go with what we can see and discern with math and what we know about nuclear physics.  But of course, there are an infinite number of possibilities.  Superstring seems to be fading out of favor, but the multi-verse is still a contender! What physicists and astronomers say now--in order to hedge their bet-- is that OUR PORTION of the "universe" is estimated to be some 40 billion or so light years in diameter and contains well over a hundred billion galaxies.
