The scientists are, therefore, saying that world would end just why it began. In this case it may either be a bang, or murmur.
Take first scenario -- inflation theory. If universe began by expansion, and has since been stretching out, believe is that someday, universe will stretch itself out. And by that time, gases sustaining it would have been sucked out, and universe will grow dark, cold and unbearable.
The man on earth will not find it funny. Without sun, vegetation will die, and man starving from hunger and air, unused to such conditions, will start dropping dead, leaving dogs to keep watch.
But they would not even be able to play watchdog for hey would follow their masters soon. Maybe a few polar animals used to surviving in sub zero temperatures may tarry for a while. And follow later.
The second scenario is deflation theory. Some imagine that one day, universe will stop its expansion to outer space, and race back to where it began -- collapse on itself!
Now, imagine all billion stars and galaxies colliding unto themselves, and try to figure out how big fire will be. The fiery furnace will just lick earth’s water in nanoseconds, and life will vanish in great conflagration.
So, life may go either way say scientists -- what a frightening prospect! And it will happen on day that natural forces decide to go mad. And when universe goes bonkers, not even our planet can save us.
In fact, stars have been exploding and colliding with one another in bizarre space, and no news is made of it. And that is because no lives are involved. But on day that earth will freeze or explode in fire, there will be funeral songs and death drums would sound.
There are funerals, though, when there are survivors. On this day, however, there will be no survivors to compose elegies, or sound funeral drums.
Take comfort though. That day may be long in coming.
