Knowing how the universe will end is freeing

Katie Mack: 'Knowing how the universe will end is freeing'

Quote

Terms like "heat death", "big rip" and "vacuum decay" don't sound all that inviting. And they aren't.

They describe a few of the theories scientists have about how our universe will one day die.

But when cosmologist Katie Mack thinks about the end of everything, it gives her peace.

Humans now have God like powers. :geek: To think that we know what will happen in the far distant future, or past, can seem slightly unreal yet is largely unappreciated.

We still don't know for sure. There are several competing hypotheses, but the fact that we can even contemplate such events is amazing.

Just about every thread started by Damien is about vacuum decay. He has an unhealthy obsession with it. Hopefully this thread can remain rational.

Maybe it can. Who know? I just through I'd bring it up considering it was the same lady.

Have you actually read the article?

It disproves every bit of nonsense you spew.

Every word. But these sentences specifically prove that you are clueless:

Quote

Simple words like "heat death" are easy to understand - and that's good, because it's the most likely way our universe will come to an end.

so not vacuum decay like you continuously and falsely claim then.

Quote

It's probably not going to happen in the next, you know, trillions and trillions and trillions and trillions of years and so on.

So it's probably not imminent like you continuously and falsely claim then.

This article doesn't prove you are right, it proves you are dishonest.

How am I dishonest, did you read the article, after the quote you posted it says but it can happen at any moment

I know I'll regret asking, but why are you so obsessed with this? It doesn't matter, just live your life. Nothing anyone can do about it anyways.

Because LHC found the higgs and found that this will happen because of it, And from what they found it’s highly possible it will happen soon.  Look at all the articles about it the past few days

And? Can you stop it? No you can't. Neither can I. Best course of action is to not worry about it. I'm not going to worry about things I can't change or control. Maybe you should try that some time.

I'm not agreeing with you. Everything is going to end eventually and nothing we as a species can do to stop it. It'll probably poof out long after we're extinct. What I'm trying to get through to you and failing at apparently, is to quit worry about something that'll take eons to happen.

In 5,000 years time people will judge today's science as primitive, maybe even pre-historic compared to their futuristic elite standards and the same will go for them in 10,000 years time when people look back at them.  Time has shown that humans rarely get anything right.  The universe is simply beyond our understanding.  Maybe that is how it is supposed to be.
