Universal Destructors(literally), and how it could work...

Hey there,
I'm working on writing an extropian sci-fi story. I've got just a few
ideas written down now. now, my biggest worry, is a thing I have
involving destructors. Would it somehow be possible for a universal
destructor to be created, that could basically eat the whole universe,
and of course, destroy it? I know that eventually, the mass contained
in this destructor would cause it to implode or something to that
matter.(I'm just not having a very high brain active day today... urgh.
The words aren't coming out right... Oh well...) Anwyays, is it
feasible to have an army of destructors destroy the universe, and create
a singularity(by having the mass concentrated so densely) similar to the
one in the origin of the big bang? If not, is there a way I could
destroy the universe/speed up things to the "big crunch"... I need to
do this in the story, and the destructors are an idea I like, but I
don't know if it's technically possible. But then again, I suppose I
could do like Star Trek, and if it doesn't fit the physics we know, just
make it up! I could use any help on this matter. I've read Physics of
Immortality and that has a little helpful info. Also Engines of
Creation is a start, but I need to learn more on something like this.
