comment Universe as 2d sphere surface - a round trip?
Yes I meant the expanding balloon analogy. It's hard to connect the baloon one with Ω=1 here, and think it describes the same universe. If it expands endlessly, like on this sheet here, does that mean that balloon in expanding so fast, we could never made a round trip?

comment The multiverse spacetime paradox?
I do understand this concept of 2D analogy very well. However our universe is 4D, therefore multiverse could only be 5D or more. Or we run into a paradox that was in my original question.

comment What is the difference between our time and space time?
How is it impossible to imagine? Isn't it it just a 3d space that can change over 4th dimension (time)?

comment The multiverse spacetime paradox?
Multiverse theory is speculative or the way I asked about the position of parallel universes in such multiverse?

comment What is the physical, geometric shape of the universe?
The answer in your first comment is the most precise I heard so far. Now I would like to dig even more :) I understand how 3-sphere "works", but not how it would look like as that "gluing" would lead to some heavy distortions of the "outer" sphere, which would heavily distort the objects inside (imagine a fish in connected spherical containers), but I do get the idea. Is this then 4D geometrical shape?

comment What is the physical, geometric shape of the universe?
Ok, to simplify to the lowest point I can imagine. Universe inflated to the size of about a solar system at the end of inflationary period, somewhere at 10 -32 seconds. Was it more of a disk or a ball shape then, or something else?

Are they then on the same orbit as our solar system, but slightly ahead of us? Will the distance be increasing between the voyagers and solar system on this orbit?

@StanLiou: So it seems like it boils down to this: It's probably flat, probably 3D. It might be edge-less, or not, we don't know. If yes, might be hypertorus and we could eventually do a round trip and came to starting point. If not, might be a ball, or anything else. We don't know, and can't imagine because of our limited scope. Is this at least remotely aligned with today's theories or are there still some gapping holes?
