In the deeply convoluted minecraft lore, chunks are a real thing and they appear where players exist, some players make more chunks appear around them than others. Past the border of chunks loading, there's just void, the sun and moon orbit through empty space. But that's JUST A improvisation, a GAME improvisation.
The sun and moon do NOT orbit around Minecraft. That just happens to be an in-game limitation for convenience. This is not the real world, after all, and real-world physics do not necessarily apply in every instance. Celestial mechanics just happens to be one of those instances, and per usual Minecraft development it wasn't fully implemented and we have these little inconsistencies everywhere.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
So basically what happens, is Jeb likes to go bowling, so he uses two bowling balls and chucks them across the sky each day, but he can’t ever hit the pins, so he keeps trying. But we can’t percieve his godly bowling, so all we see is some balls of light flying across the sky.

“There are no evil weapons, only evil people” - Someone, I guess?
I can't remember the end poem or whatever, but is there any official or lore source about this?
The world limits I always took as technical limitations only, and not as any official or lore reasons about the world or the way the Minecraft universe works.
I always presumed the world was either just a flat plane, or a block-shaped planet, probably the former as there is no in-game indication of an "edge" at any point in the terrain to a supposed planet, and they revolved around it, but I never actually put thought into it.
