How the Universe Ends


Huh, well that was certainly morbid.

Here you go:


“I guess everyone tends to feel depressed about it,” Baez told Gizmodo. “People are future-thinking animals, and we always like to think about life in terms of a story, and hope it has a happy ending. It goes against our brain to imagine development other than things getting more interesting, but there’s no reason to think that this will last forever.”

Funnily enough, I’ve never met anyone who was depressed about it, apart from atheist prophets of heat death.

I have, however, met thousands of people who are no more accepting of the finality of heat death than they believe these guys on the finality of human death. They have already experienced the begining of new creation, and the doom-merchants have not.
