time, cause and effect, etc.

time could be:
1) finite 2) one of the various types of infinity 3) cyclical 4) fuzzy and perhaps infinite if its set is of low ordinality
I don't know about you, but I experience cause and effect
for time to be finite there has to be a first cause and a last effect, our universe, as part of a multiverse, would have to exist within membranes or a manifold or something
if time is cyclical, this is easy, the last effect is the first cause http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuga
I don't think cause and effect are compatible with a continuum, I don't know enough about countable and uncountable infinities and associated math to talk about them
I don't know enough about ordinalities of sets and associated math to talk about that
