End of the Universe
There is an ancient legend which warns that, should we ever learn our true origin, our universe will instantly be destroyed.
Assembling the maximum amount of information on the universe can put an end to the world. As in the fable of the nine billion names of God: when, thanks to the computer, we’ve been able to decline them all, the world will end, and the stars will go out.
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
