Unfathomable. Our minds are not built to fully grasp the immensity and complexity of the universe.

Nothing. That is the mind fuck. It is hard enough to get your head around the concept of "no time" but "no space" is even harder.

Is the universe going to keep expanding until all the clumps of matter are too far to interact with each other or will it at some point collapse in on it self???

The observable universe is so far the only thing we can measure. And there are different calculations. However it is not ruled out that there is something beyond what we can measure with current methods.

Some info here.
