Truth. I find it difficult to believe in the heat death of the universe. The Big Crunch makes sense to me. The universe expands for a time, and collapses. Like breathing. But continual expansion with the universe turning into some cold, undefinable soup.. I don't know. It's just difficult for me to swallow, because it has no analog, or precedent. Then again, maybe thats the whole gig. The only truly unique thing in the universe will be its fantastically drawn out, boring death.
