You'd better hope for an eternally expanding universe, even with the attendant dangers of a Pynchonian Callistoish entropic demise (I prefer the frenetic complex energy of the lease-breaking party, myself). The mail alternative, an eternally cycling Big Bang / Big Crunch cosmic heartbeat (punctuated by the eternal recurrence of the Mother of all Singularities) does not permit pattern, the sine qua non of consciousness, to pass its superhot/supergravity Stygian microuniformchaosoup gate.
