Interesting article here. According to this new theory our current universe will be replaced when the higgs field becomes unstable and a new universe expands destroying this one. I thought it was interesting because it seems to revert back to a kind of cyclic existence theory whereas it seemed to me that before this the big crunch idea had been replaced by the big rip theory where the universe just expands and expands until there's basically nothing for the rest of eternity. Anyway, I know it's one of the issues the Buddha put aside but I just thought some people might find it interesting.
