I was watching a program that described a hypothetical end to the universe,trillions of years in the future where all the atoms decayed, and even the black holes decayed, leaving the 'big chill'.

Space and time would still exist, would it not ? What would happen if such an environment had an expansion of energy/matter into it.. sort of a 'big bang 2'. How would observers in that 'second big bang' see the universe differently than we do now?

How can we distinguish between expanding into an empty, cold universe that already had 'space' and distance, versus the creation of space/time as the inflationary theory of the big bang says? If, after a bunch of billion years, intelligent creatures evolved, .. how would they know they were part of an older universe that 'chilled out' .. or would it appear to them that space/time formed at the beginning of the expansion of their energy/matter?

Topic title change suggestion
I originally sent this suggestion to Ramoss as a personal message, but I now think it should be in the topic itself.

Quoting my PM:

Message 1 looks pretty good, but I suggest a topic title change.

Instead of the existing "The begining(sic) of space/time and the big bang", how about "Big Bang 2 and a new beginning of space/time"? Maybe that would help distinguish your topic from the many Big Bang topics that have already happened.

Re: Topic title change suggestion
That sounds good. How do I change the title, or can you edit it when you move it over?

{Historical note - Topic title edits are done via editing message 1. The topic starter or an admin can do such. - Adminnemooseus}
