I have a healthy orchid, in flower almost continuously. However, it has a mass of aerial roots and looks as if it is trying to climb out of the pot. Do I bury these roots or cut them, or should it look like this?

This is quite common for the orchid to send out new roots and they often form these roots on the surface of the growing medium.
The next time you repot the orchid, choose a slightly larger pot to adequately fit the roots comfortably.
