Does the Universe fear Heat Death?
    #4219760 - 05/25/05 08:50 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

While we may be gone in 75 years or so; maybe the Universe itself trembles at the thought of it's demise in a few short eons.

"Oh shit! There will be no more me in a trillion years."

The universe then blows up a galaxy or two in a vein attempt to quell it's fear. Maybe a few black holes will help overcome the primal angst...

The proof is in the pudding.

A trillion years? In terms of the universe, a trillion years is the blink of an eye, and we'll still be in the same age. The end of the Stelliferous Age, or age of stars, isn't expected until 100 trillion years after the Big Bang. That's quite a long time.

No, the universe won't start to wet itself until 10^150 years after the Big Bang, when all the black holes have disintegerated. The universe may blow up a few galaxies and create a few black holes, but it will do nothing, not even delay the inevitable. The low energy state of the universe is approximated to be around 10^1000 years after the Big Bang, and then maybe we could lay the universe to rest and leave it to the worms.

The universe is a stupid brute, isn't it? I doubt it can even comprehend its own death.

You can comprehend the end of the universe? You must have a much much higher level of comprehension than I do, as after a few hundred trillion years the universe starts to escape my comprehension.

i suppose i think of comprehension as a spectrum.  just thinking that the universe will end is a small level of comprehension if you ask me.

i'm really not claiming to know anything more about the universe's end than that it will probably happen, based on what i read in ravus' post. :shrug:

Ravus is an idiot. To be honest, I wouldn't believe half of the shit he says. He can't even comprehend any of it.

3 degrees Kelvin gonna be the warm spots then, eh?


i want my little 40 billion l.y. diameter cluster of foam & bubbles to be part of itzak bentov's esthetically pleasing egg-shaped "local" omniverse (with a lovely cosmic whirlpool/cosmic fountain (black hole/white hole vortex) in the center where the "yolk" would be, mmmm?) described in his lovely little book _stalking the wild pendulum_

y'know, a lot of round things, and a lot of wiggly things, & things popping into & out of being all the time, and consciousness as an aspect of matter (& maybe vice versa, i dunno, hehheh...), & spirit as an aspect of attention...
i mean, intuitively, it does seem to work, heh...
ymmv...
