    Open-ended means that there is no definite end or close to something.
    For example, if I give you an open-ended invitation to visit me, that means you can come and visit any time you like, without time restrictions.
    Applied to thought, it might mean that there is no definite end to opinions, beliefs, etc. - everything is provisional, subject to further thought and revision.
