The unfolding mystery of new heaven & new earth

It turns out, the "discovery" of the Higgs-Boson creates some interesting new complexities.

"Since detecting the particle in their accelerator experiments, researchers at the Geneva lab and at related institutions around the world have begun to theorise on the Higgs' implications for physics."

"One idea that it throws up is the possibility of a cyclical universe, in which every so often all of space is renewed."

I don't know if this is what the Bible means when it talks about "new heaven and new earth"  - and don't think the human writers of the Bible had any notion of atomic particles, let alone the Higgs-Boson . . . but it's a curiousity that makes me smile. 

Oh . . . it may be "billions" of years away - so don't get too excited for the "end to be near" just yet! =)
