“speculatively, it is possible that the universe may enter a second inflationary epoch, or, assuming that the current vacuum state is a false vacuum, the vacuum may decay into a lower-energy state. it is also possible that entropy production will cease and the universe will achieve heat death.” —fred adams & greg laughlin (reviews of modern physics 69)
