Could studying the universe DESTROY it? Changing our perception of the cosmos could end it if quantum theories are correct
-This is based on strange way quantum states are affected when observed
-In Schrödinger's cat experiment, a cat in a box, whose fate is decided by subatomic particles, is both alive and dead until someone looks at it
-According to two U.S. scientists, the same thing could happen to the universe, causing an irreversible shift in the universe's energy
-Some scientists think universe is overdue for a quantum energy change
-If shift occurs, it won't exceed the speed of light, so we’ll see it coming

Knowledge is power - or at least that’s what we’ve been led to believe.
But knowing too much could accidentally trigger a countdown to Armageddon, according to a two U.S. physicists.
The scientific theory suggests we may have nudged the universe closer to its death just by looking at it.
This is because they’ve dared to measure dark energy, the mysterious force that is driving galaxies apart.
The researchers, who first proposed their idea in 2007, argue that continuous observation of the universe might put it into a state that will destroy us all.
Their theory relates to a strange property of quantum physics which controls the behaviour of subatomic particles and possibly the whole universe.
Quantum systems can shift a particle’s energy state at random, for example, when a radioactive atom decays.
Some scientists think the universe is overdue for a quantum energy shift that would cause everything to cease to exist at any moment.
If a collapse occurs, it won't exceed the speed of light, so we’ll probably see it coming, according to Esther Inglis-Arkell at iO9....

Not if Sting theory is right there an unlimited amount of possibilities for space on each world line. Say in another one white holes are more common then black holes.

the matter spit out of black holes does go faster then the speed of light since its antimatter and doesnt follow the same rules as matter.

You should read "Quarantine" the scifi novel. It deals with this concept. Aliens enclose our solar system in a "bubble" to keep us from collapsing eigenstates of distant regions of developing space by looking at it. we were freezing it to our reality and devastating potential expansion or changes for other emerging consciousness.

Already done that.

The Earth used to be flat.

Comets used to cause catastrophies.

Miasmas used to cause disease.

It was once impossible for man to fly.

Still is, in another dimension / universe. Of course that's if you buy into the entire string theory concept. I think of it more of a vibrational spider-web.

Things feel like they're falling apart now because we're getting closer to the truth? & when we finally realize the truth, something will occur to end it all?

Makes sense. Like a pendulum that stops oscillating.

double slit experiment seems to support the theory that the universe acts differently when it is being observed.

reminds me of the "trickster".
