Where is the end of the Internet?

When I was a kid, one of my favorite puzzles was: "If the universe has no end, how is that possible? And If it does end... what is on the other side?"

I realized a little while ago that the same thing can be said of the Internet. It seems to have an ever expanding growth where when the end is reached, another web page is created to expand the spiderweb crack style growth of Cyber Space.

So, what would define the actual end of the Internet? Not a collapse type of ending, I am talking about the outer edge of Cyber Space where none could proceed beyond that point.

No, not a website with no links leading out from it. An end that would be clearly recognized by all as n outer edge of the Internet.

What would that look like? How would we know it was the end of the Internet? What would be on the other side? Where the next link should have linked to but can not.
