There is a >0% chance that the universe could spontaneously end and we would have no idea, amirite?

Actually there is a science thingy that says that there's a 1/2 chance the universe could end in a blink because of some particule/atom/something that may or may not exist and end us all

But if we ceased to exist, how could we know the universe ended?

It could theoretically be zero, but it couldn't possibly be less than zero.

The universe ends in a moaning

What if it has already ended, and we are in some weird time loop reliving our memories over and over again

@bibbitybobbitybacon What if it has already ended, and we are in some weird time loop reliving our memories over and over again

Or our earth fell into a black hole and all the information got stored on the black holes surface, so from our perspective we just continue living our life, although we are (at least in our common terms) already dead

Not according to the laws of physics

I said this a few weeks ago, but worded much less eloquently.

There is a theory that the whole universe is the result of a rather extravagant quantum fluctuation. Its happening all around us all the time where a particle (or many) and it's anti-particle pair are spontaneously created out of nothing, undergo a few more transformations and collapse back into nothingness before the universe notices that the law of conservation of energy has been violated.

But imagine that, but on a much much larger scale. Due to some freak of probability, one such fluctuation cascaded and grew into what we see as the universe today, and it will, sometime, collapse back into empty vacuum.
