TIMELAPSE OF THE FUTURE: A Journey to the End of Time (4K)

  • Published: 20 March 2019
  • Support my work on Patreon: patreon.com/melodysheep | Get the soundtrack: bit.ly/2HKl9fi | How's it all gonna end? This experience takes us on a journey to the end of time, trillions of years into the future, to discover what the fate of our planet and our universe may ultimately be.

    We start in 2019 and travel exponentially through time, witnessing the future of Earth, the death of the sun, the end of all stars, proton decay, zombie galaxies, possible future civilizations, exploding black holes, the effects of dark energy, alternate universes, the final fate of the cosmos - to name a few.

    This is a picture of the future as painted by modern science - a picture that will surely evolve over time as we dig for more clues to how our story will unfold. Much of the science is very recent - and new puzzle pieces are still waiting to be found.

    To me, this overhead view of time gives a profound perspective - that we are living inside the hot flash of the Big Bang, the perfect moment to soak in the sights and sounds of a universe in its glory days, before it all fades away. Although the end will eventually come, we have a practical infinity of time to play with if we play our cards right. The future may look bleak, but we have enormous potential as a species.

    Featuring the voices of David Attenborough, Craig Childs, Brian Cox, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michelle Thaller, Lawrence Krauss, Michio Kaku, Mike Rowe, Phil Plait, Janna Levin, Stephen Hawking, Sean Carroll, Alex Filippenko, and Martin Rees.

        Our universe may died. But its just another cell or part, yes just another dust piece of another thing. Something bigger. There will always be bigger and smaller things. Its all infinity.

                                                                I personally think the idea of an ever expanding universe where entropy reaches its maximum value and the universe remains "unchanging" and cold, is very soothing and peaceful. Everything is always changing, hectic, uncertain yet everyone tries to find their own peace and quietness and certainty. The idea that eventually everyone or more the universe itself will eventually reach this point is very satisfying. The idea of no matter what is inevitably there will be peace and harmony in the end.

Once all the stars die off and stop, or even as it slows down production, this expansion of the Universe will slow stop and then fall back in on itself as the energy produced by the stars is no longer there to keep it at bay. This may stymie with the energy added from proton decay, however I do not think it will matter much at that point.
