I'm not suggesting we could observe such an event, I'm just thinking that if that is possible, and does/will/can/has happen(ed)(s), then it would be a theory in the same kinda vein as suggested above, but seems more plausible to me.

The only problem, of course, is that it's a theory of religious proportions. The entire thing reads like the invisible pink unicorn: We can't measure it in any way, and may only be possible once everything living in the universe is thoroughly dead.

Indeed — see the last paragraph here.

This book was truly a waste of time, please delete this thread, or at the very least move it to the junk science section, I tried to give this book a chance, oh well moved on to something better now about Copernicus which sounds like a worthwile read, I should have just not responded and let this thread die in the abyss of threads gone by, but since I posted it in the science section, I just wanted it at very least going to junk science or philosophy maybe, maybe the book will sound more credible reading it with a case of whisky Evil Evil Evil

Now I'm interested as to what in the book made you think that way?
