Could you explain this please? I am not educated in the area of Infinite
Regress Fallacy.>>

In other words, if you get to the end of the universe then what's beyond
Then what's beyond that? Etc.
For a more detailed look at the profound implications of epistemology
I recommend _Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology_ by Ayn Rand.
If you really feel you need cosmological support for an open universe
I recommend _The Big Bang Never Happened_ by Eric J. Lerner.
