    Maybe the aliens one day tried to achieve the smallest quantum processor but alas the tunneling caused this ^. Boom aliens gone

    to be honest, time is the most efficient way to destroy the universe

    But if this false vacuum is limited to expanding at the speed of light (which I assume is because of how particles interact), then it would never be able to consume our entire universe.

    What I learnt from this is that every thing is trying to bludge and will do so to the point of destroying the universe itself

    I'm not sure that stability/energy relationship is right, because I have neither energy nor stability.

    If something is not proven, it shoud be considered unexisting. Just like God, just like vacuum decay.

    "They might not ever be able to reach us because of the expansion of the universe."Would this only be true if we are at the center of the universe?Please advise, I don't want to over-think this.. 😅

    hi kurzgesagt , i have been thinking on a hoery and i want you to make it real (pls make me as the principal person that did it)what about if the universe (as how we know it) is a vacuum decay, well analyze it , on an older space , something was metastable, or on the false vacuum, and the object did the tunnel, and crashed (the big bang9 , creating the true vacuum ,and everything the true vacuum touched becamed on to its natural state (the answer so to the zero dividing will be one), why dividing by zero , easy ,the true vacuum is like the nothingness , (like in the start of big bang ) then there were basic molecules rushing all around the space , then the molecules started to join , generating all the planets and stuff we know , (what if a vacuum decay occurs here?, it would be like the mega cancer a cancer , with cancer ),an one last thing , what about if the universe expansion is the true vacuum expanding at the speed of light .guys , please make my theory real , help me with the cientist to proove it , i will apreciate it , there is my name , pls make it real :)
