Subject: Eternal universe?

Concerning David Pizer's demonstration that the Universe is eternal, even if
we accept this (and I'm quite willing to do so), it doesn't mean that the
conditions permitting life to exist within it will also last forever. An
ever expanding Universe would progressively get more and more diluted,
making it harder and harder for life to obtain the energy and resources it
needs to survive. A recollapsing Universe would at some point become too hot
and dense to allow life to exist. Anyone aspiring for immortality would
eventually have to face one of those situations and find a way to survive

Duct tape is a lot like the Force,
it has a Light and a Dark side
and it binds the World together.
