I always thought that the end of the universe would be when all matter was so spread out and the universe so homogeneous that nothing interacted anymore. delta S= zero.

Hi Ramoss,

Dr. Hawking has retracted the loss of information paradox.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/...paceexploration.highereducation

Leonard Susskind proposes the information is retained within the event horizon and emitted back as Hawking radiation.

All of this be theoretical physics of course.

Salient point being the conservation of information is preserved in the latter theory.

It seems more plausible that eventually everything will be so spread apart that even light will not reach the observer. The universe will possibly just go dark. Things happen because there are differences. If nothing interacts, nothing happens.
