    Default There goes the universe...

    Apparently, the whole universe is unstable and will get clobbered by a new universe in billions of years. This was determined from the mass of the Higgs boson.

    I was really starting to like the universe...

    I find it rather fitting that the universe that can support life also makes it inherently unstable.

    Another hypothesis is that the expansion of the universe beyond the point of even having mass is likely.

    So we can build spacecraft to escape the destruction of Earth but we can’t escape the destruction of the universe?

    That's it, we're all doomed.

    Has anyone realized how the possibility of cyclic universe blows a hole into most used theistic argument, the prime mover?

    The prime mover is cycling them, hence "prime mover"
