All wholes - all units - are internally continuous and externally discrete. Which is to say: they have boundaries. This seems to give the lie to pantheism, since the universe, if it is self-sufficient, must itself have a boundary, and consequently be set against something, namely what it is not. Does this mean that from God's perspective the universe is itself discrete? Or - that it is one among many universes?

Wouldn't that depend on if the source of creating this reality is also the source for creating the other realities your discussing?

I don't think I understand why the universe, or reality for that matter, Must have a boundry. The concept of an infinite universe(s) means not that it has no end, but there is no end.

I'm sorry, do you view God as a force of creation or a manipulater, of any kind?

Witt,

Your premise is presumptuous, debatably improvable, and therefore untenable.

There is no known certainty of any actual boundaries. No science has yet determined the source of anything let alone its boundaries.

In regards to the extremely limited range of the perceivable and measurable spectrum of existance and the even more limited knowledge the human sciences have of it, the best theories are still leaning towards all reality being a connected unified source or field of energetic waves of seemingly limitless potential that are formed by consciousness itself into the physically perceived boundaries you appear to refer to, but with no claimed loss of connectivity or definitiveness to any boundary.

Just variations in varbrational frequencies creating differing densities which allow for form and structures and the ability of this conscious energy to interact with itself in all manner of different ways.

Are you claiming to know that the universe has boundaries? Or that science knows? This is also a trick question because the term universe is meant to define that which encompasses all existance, regardless of any seeming boundaries or, more accurately, labels of stages and pockects of densities, like planet, solar system, galaxy, dimension, etc.
