The Big Phzzt

Would the universe end in a state of zero information?..... Nope!

...the Uncertainty principle would not allow a state of 'no information exchange' - i think if the universe expands to such a degree that particles can only exist in a quantum state, then each point in the universe would exist in its own universe, with 'our' observable universe a cloud of collected possibilities of all points, or rather, their observations....

... and information exchange would then be the effect of each such possible cloud on every other cloud,i.e., where no effect would be a null set, thereby giving us both a zero as well as preserving uncertainty!!!

....so we would never be able, in fact, to say that there is such a thing as the end of the universe, as we can never observe with certainty a position where there is no cloud i.e. a null set, nor can we isolate a single cloud as representative of the universe....

I always found this to be a funny subject, as it all relates to the subject entitled "The Ultimate Fate of the Universe." There are loads of theories about this subject, as it beckons for the imagination and creative ideas to surface, even if it is just for fun...

The Cosmic Uncertainty "principle" or however you want to label it, basically states: Each possibility described and/or theorized by us poor little humanoids with limited view, is based on a very simple form for the dark energy equation of state. But as the name is meant to imply, we know almost nothing of the real physics of the dark energy. If the theory of inflation is true, the universe went through an episode dominated by a different form of dark energy in the first moments of the Big Bang, but inflation ended, indicating an equation of state much more complicated than those assumed so far for present-day dark energy. It is possible that the dark energy equation of state could change again resulting in an event that would have consequences which are extremely difficult to parametrize or predict.

Oh, well... Have fun with it, as many of us cannot help but wonder......
