There exists a void in space, located in the constellation of Eridanus, reaching about 1 billion light years across, the largest known void in the universe, which is lacking in all light, matter and even dark matter. No one knows why it's there. Current models of cosmological inflation, with quantum fluctuation as the source of spatial differences of matter across space, sets it's existence as unlikely but not impossible. It's vastness in size suggests that some other cause is behind it.

One hypothesis suggests it is the result of a supermassive black hole which lies beyond the range of our observation. Another hypothesis suggests it's the quantum entangled footprint of a parallel universe, which is somehow testable, they say. Yet another hypothesis suggests it was mercilessly devoured by our Dark Lord Cthulhu.

God did it.

I think Cthulhu would have taken a bigger bite.

a much much much much much much much bigger bite.
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.
