I came here by mistake and was caught by the title.

Can humanity be eternal with the help of technology ,if the universe itself is not eternal and technology needs the universe for it's resources?

what will the universe be once it's dead ? can it be recycled ? but who could recycle it ?

sorry I could only find more questions.

Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.
