      +Big Chungus , it's still a valid answer at the end: Even if it would happen, the rate at which the Universe accelerate it's expansion will be far to great for such a event to reach to us, even at the speed of light. And even if it will, it will take millions of years.

    Wait a minute! The universe is expanding, right? And ik keeps expanding faster, right? Wouldn’t that mean that if space would eventually expend faster than light (like with Heath Death), this new weird bubble of destruction couldn’t eat the universe? So maybe the ‘death’ of the universe will prevent the death of the universe

    Hold on. So there is a chance that multiple spheres of true vacuum with their own laws of physics exist in the universe. But what if two spheres collide? would one destroy the other, or would they fuse? And if they fuse, what law of physics will it get? I mean, it's two "universes" with each having it's completely different law of physics. Can you guys please try to explain this to me.

  • Taylor Oxelgren
    Taylor Oxelgren 16 days ago

    If the higgs field grows at the speed of light wouldn’t it take an extremely long time to reach us? Perhaps forever. I thought the universe was expanding faster than the speed of light due to spacetime expanding, this is why portions of our observable universe is slowly being lost.
    So even if this happened if it is in a portion outside our universe it would never be able to reach us.
    Also as long as it is rather far off if it does happen in our universe being that space is expanding faster than the speed of light. If we could construct a artificial planet or just a ship that travels at the speed of light or faster(using warp drives to bend space time) we could just outrun this thing forever.
