Our known universe has many imposed limitations, based on our ability to observe and measure it, but no one can really estimate as to the actual age and size of the universe beyond the interpretation of empirical evidence that we are able to gather and collate. As of matter of contention is whether these measures for age, size, and shape have any real meaning outside our observable universe. This is partly because the dimensional boundaries of our SpaceTime are always evolving and partly because within our demensional boundaries of SpaceTime it is ever-expanding, per our ability to observe and measure it. Another aspect for consideration is whether this small pocket within our observable universe is representative of the universe as a whole.
