EEK they say it could be so.

Could the universe collapse TODAY? Physicists claim that risk is ‘more likely than ever and may have already started’
Collapse could be down to a subatomic particle known as the Higgs boson
Higgs boson is evidence for an energy field that pervades the universe
Shift in field will cause particles in it to become billions of times heavier
The new weight will squeeze all material into a small, super-hot and heavy ball, and the universe as we know it will cease to exist

Excerpt

The mind-bending concept has been around for a while, but now researchers in Denmark claim they have proven it is possible with mathematical equations.

The basis of the theory is that sooner or later a radical shift in the forces of the universe will cause every particle in it to become extremely heavy.

Everything - every grain of sand, every planet and every galaxy – will become billions of times heavier than it is now.

The theory suggests that the new weight will squeeze all material into a small, super-hot and heavy ball, and the universe as we know it will cease to exist.

This violent process is called a ‘phase transition’ and is similar to what happens when, for example, water turns to steam or a magnet heats up and loses its power.

Rumpole IS the centre of the Universe... so the collapse will start elsewhere... and end here :cool

wait.... I think the collapse starts at the center, ergo, you are first yet again! ;)
