    Everybody dies. The universe too? Well, probably. What are the current theories about the end of everything? And how creepy exactly are these theories? (Spoiler: very creepy). But there might be hope...

      You forgot another thing. Thanos from Avemgers Endgame also wanted to destroy the universe and recreate a new one. So that's it, Thanos is the 4th possible way of universe's destruction.

                    What if there are NO black energy at all what if it is a kind of gas that makes us see that dark. What if it is just a kind of gas instead of energy. A gas with high energy or very hot that makes it accelerate.
                    Just a opinion

                                Yeah, I prefer the Big Freeze too because it would only happen after the sun explodes, so the universe would be too dark to see while the surviving planets would be frozen. But I’m pretty sure a new Big Bang reincarnating the universe would only happen in the Big Bounce because I’d rather be in Heaven with my ancestors, my descendants, and old celebrities that I never got meet or will meet.

                                                      How is the universe billions of years old yet you talk about its destruction like at some point billions of years could just mean nothing?

                                                      That’s like saying recycle will clean the planet for good when in reality there is plastic waste EVERYWHERE... since we started recycling.

                                                      Don’t want to come off harsh but those theoretical beliefs can’t possibly be accurate.

                                                      And we haven’t found any real life apart from microbial on other surfaces...

                                                      Fool me once, shame on you!

                                                        por fin lo que buscaba mi único objetivo en la vida siempre ha sido desde mi nacimiento,concepción poder destruir el universo es lo que siempre había anhelado pues el universo es una mierda y nada tiene sentido a excepción del hecho que todo es una mierda, lo que existió existe y existirá es irrelevante y una mierda pero la destrucción de la nada daría un significado real
                                                        convirtiéndose en algo. Por eso lo mejor que se puede hacer con las capacidades y el conocimiento de los humanos seria destruir "todo" y acabar con el nada por fin de una vez por todo y darle un significado y sentido a esta locura

                                                                                            Mass can niether be created nor can it be destroyed so keeping this in mind I think 1st one will be most likely possible
                                                                                            Plz correct me if I am wrong
