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)
