I too believe this is so. The edges of the world (Luathela, Altinela, etc.) however are neither "states of bineg/mind" nor are they in the mundane plane. In the same manner it is possible to sail to the edge of the sky and then up into the sky world (if you don't get caught in a bad current and fall over the edge of the world into the Underworld seas.)

Not exactly "how far," because the distance is by definition immeasurable. But the various cultures' methodologies would determine "how quickly." Basically, it is always too far to get to by ordinary means. Extraordinary means are required, and even those may not be enough. The examples of people actually getting to the edge of the world by using physical means are pretty rare over all, though not unknown in any cultrue.
