AN.IV.46 Dutiya Rohitassa Sutta The Buddha tells the monks about how the angel Rohitassa asked whether it is possible by traveling, to know or see or reach a far end of the cosmos where one does not take birth, age, die, pass away or reappear?"
The Buddha had replied that such and end of the world cannot be known, seen or reached.
Rohitassa had said that the Buddha's answer confirmed his suspicion because in a former birth as a hermit with psychical powers, he had journeyed for 100 years but failed to reach the end of the world.
The Buddha had said that if one requires to know: 1. the nature of the world; 2. the origin of the world; 3. the cessation of the world, and; 4. the path leading to the cessation of the world -- you can find the answers here inside this fathom-long body.
