Universe In Danger of Popping Out of Existence

Physicists from the European Organization for Nuclear Research or CERN, for some reason, have issued an ominous warning to the governments of the world. Based on the conclusions of the best modern physics, an unseen danger lurks just beyond the bend of the horizon of our every day reality, which receives very little attention from our available stockpiles of fear.

While there is much talk in the media about the risks of global warming, near earth object collision and superbugs decimating humanity, no one talks about the more obvious danger: that the Universe should suddenly pop out of existence.

It is well known among scientists that at some point in the past, the Universe with all its physical laws and energy came into being from nothing, uncaused and without any preceding material or physical necessity. With such fundamentally unpredictable behavior, there is real risk that at any moment the universe could simply pop out of existence according to the very same metaphysical principles.

When this event happens, nothing will have ever happened. We will all be doomed, and not doomed. This event will disproportionately impact women and minorities, added CERN's lead physicist Joran van Sloot.

While we as observers may perceive time as something that 'happens' and takes a while, that may just be a subjective viewpoint, and at any moment the universe could abruptly cease to exist, taking with it the entire past -- thus causing every moment that ever existed to cease existing simultaneously, in the greatest of all imaginable cataclysms.

There are good grounds for expecting this to happen eventually, as a simple matter of statistics. In the infinite time horizon of the future, every eventuality must occur by logical necessity, including ultimately the random disappearance of all physical reality in an inversion of the event that kicked it all off.

When that happens, the event will reach back into time and destroy us all with as much suddenness and as much effect as the initial popping into existence. Everyone should be aware of this danger and take the proper precautions, and not underestimate the suddenness with which it may occur.

Everyone out there, stay safe.

Oh Bill, you scintillating rabblerouser...

you.

why are pandas exempt from RICO statutes?

Honestly, put this in

Honestly, put this in humor.

Eitherway, who cares?

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Is it humor to tell people

Is it humor to tell people what to do on a liberty forum?

Has the state proven this to be true?

I don't want to have another disaster where conspiracy theorists succeed tricking people into thinking 2+2=4.

Plus, if the state hasn't spoken of it, does it really exist?

"Tu ne cede malis, sed contra audentior ito."

no

it remains secret knowledge, but you posess that knowledge. I suggest you share it on youtube. Open up a channel...it could be your thing...you could hit it big with ad sense and make at least a couple of hundred dollars every month, from the privacy of your own home.

Aunt Janet

Rumors are circulating Janet Yellen "proved herself" to the Senate Banking Committee by using top-secret technology found at Area 51 to artificially drive universal expansion beyond its natural acceleratory rate. This is a bubble of cosmological proportions and is not going to end well. Prepare accordingly.

Upon hearing this report a

Upon hearing this report a guru in the Himalayas was said to have stated:

It's refreshing to see modern science catch up with what we mystics have known about for a long time. The odds of the universe popping out if existence are zero and infinite at the same time. Therefore zero and infinity are equal. Once the universal consciousness that creates reality becomes aware of this fact it will know that it does not exist, never has and never will. Therefore there is no reality either. Pass me the momo please.

Never trouble trouble til trouble troubles you. Fortune Cookie

This reminds me of a question by a five year old.

He was interested in astrophysics (!) and one night when his mom was putting him to bed he asked, "Mom, if the universe is expanding what is it expanding into?"

So, by the same token, if the universe pops out of existence, what will be left?

This kind of touches on the underlying enigma at the root of all of these ideas. What is being, really? If you want to experience a sense of dissonance try probing that one.

P.S. I think this sentence was the giveaway: "This event will disproportionately impact women and minorities, added CERN's lead physicist Joran van Sloot."

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

this is huge

The NSA needs to wiretap God and find out when this will happen. I want to make sure I'm wearing clean underwear for the popping out of existence.

Prepare?

How in the world could we prepare for something of this magnitude if it is real? There is nothing to prepare for! What you are saying is "Party on Dude" as that is all we can do. Live your life to the fullest everyday and believe that this day could be your last. That, of course, is good advice as you never know when your time is up. Do good everyday, help those in need, do what is right by yourself and your family, do what is right for all around you, do what is right for the sake of Liberty for All, and you will have lived a good life no matter when your life ends. My Opinion.

and if it did... what exactly could be done about it?

Absolutely nothing at all. We live in a volatile universe where literally any number of things could happen to destroy us. "This event will disproportionately impact women and minorities, added CERN's lead physicist Joran van Sloot." Is this just a joke of a post or what?

It's very likely our Universe IS going to have a Big RIP

Then essentially "pop" out of existence. Although it won't happen for billions of years, it is almost guaranteed because our Universe is constantly expanding faster without abatement, causing a future tear that shreds the Universe into nothingness.

Thank you for posting about

Thank you for posting about the Pooh book. I love Pooh. People think I'm silly for how much I read into him and the existence of this book proves I'm not! Sounds amazing and right up my alley. I'd love to hear your opinion of it!

Dude!

Mind. Blown. AGAIN!

3rd or 4th book I've read from your suggestions and once again I am left stunned that this knowledge has been around for so long. There were a couple other books from the late 1800s and early 1900s that blew my mind. This book was fantastic as well. Very easy to wrap your head around these concepts even though the knowledge gained here is far beyond words. I believe that's the whole point one must get too.

Oprah's Book Club has got NOTHIN' on you, my friend!

On to Pooh!!

"God's Debris" is an interesting book on these concepts...

The wiki description was not exactly what I took from it however, but close.. Wiki takes an apparently atheistic interpretation of the books conclusions..

this is pretty good

You could have made it funnier by having the scientists ask for more funding to study the problem.

If this aims to satirize the Big Bang theory, you should know that the Big Bang theory does not require ex nihilo cosmogenesis. The theory just implies an energy state so hot that a unified field prevails, preventing the formation of baryons. A pre-baryonic soup does not imply that nothing exists. Also, you are confusing our universe with existence. Just because our universe is purported to have began thusly does not imply there do not exist other universes.

In any case, I am personally not a huge fan of the Big Bang theory and prefer Alfven's plasma cosmology. But I am no expert on these things.

you remind me of the Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons

i wonder if comic book guy

i wonder if comic book guy was also an amateur physics geek when he wasn't being a fat comic book loser. :-D
