According to the current scientific consensus, once 101000 years has elapsed, and the universe is nothing but a sea of photons, it will be a realm in which quantum entanglement, and the uncertainty arising therefrom, will be in effect a macroscopic phenomenon. Which means that there will still be inhomogeneities in the distribution of energy. Plus, of course, those photons will themselves constitute local inhomogeneities.

Now returning you to your scheduled thread ...

Which means of course, that the whole damn thing might reboot itself! ;)
