You might want to check out Roger Penrose's Conformal Cyclical Cosmology model. It puts an even more interesting spin on the Universe's demise. No need to worry about Heat Death there. Point being, I wouldn't get too wrapped up on any of the theories on how the Universe will end. We just don't know at this point.
Soulatman finding meaning instead of what could be happenstance with a few physical parameters is no good reason to absolutely assume as he did, the universe was made for life. now by mentioning that book, I wanted soulatman to realize how inhospitable this universe was in the past and how inhospitable it might be in the future. Even in Penrose's CCC theory the universe will end with high entropy which is also described to occur in the book "The Five Ages of the Universe". Both end in heat death. Btw, do you know what heat death means?
