According to New Scientist, you – and the entire universe – may be mangled and destroyed at any moment, thanks to quantum physics and multiverses:

“It could be there’s a moment of pain before the end,” (theorist Robin) Hanson says. “But you could be comforted by the fact that versions of you will go on, even if you don’t.”

Thanks a lot.

There’s more comfort to be found in the fact that many physicists think Hanson’s ideas are “preliminary and probably flawed.”
