Idle Ramblings

Idle Ramblings
One day in the universe there will be a final star.

The last star to shine.

When this star has shone it's last all that's left will be an army of black holes sucking up the last of the Cosmic debris.

This will then be the time of true darkness. But with no more food even the army will eventually evaporate and all that's left will be a void of sub atomic particles spread so thinly as to barely register as existence.

Time no longer has any meaning. But even here there is hope.

Sooner or later quantum flux will trigger a change in the laws of nature and the cycle will being again.

This is the true nature of things.

Reminds me of the story (Arthur C Clarke?) of the supercomputer set to answer the meaning of life. It keeps requestiing more time and data. Time goes by, the computre rebuilds itself and reprograms itself over and over again in its quest for The Answer.
Finally it has become a universe encompasing sub-ether intelligence, computing away, looking for The Ultimate Answer. The original askers of the questions and their descendants are long dead and forgotten, the Universe is cold.

After eons of computing the enormous program terminates and gives the answer.

StewartP,

That was Issac Asimov's short story "The Last Question". The question was "How can the net amount of entropy of the universe be massively decreased?"

Spot on, and of course the question makes sense of the answer "Let there be light"

I blame old age and mental weakness for the confusion.
