                      Perhaps a theoretical future “Big Bang” that resets the universe? Maybe it rewrites, replaces, envelops, erases or pushes away our universe? Could begin after another parallel dimensional universe “bumps” into ours with slightly different mathematical properties than ours?

                          What if....

                          The higgs field has multiple quasi stable values and every so often it drops to the lower level, destroying the universe, yet creating a new one in the process.
                          Could the big bang be caused by the plummeting of the higgs field in the prior universe?
