And to make an end is to make a beginning.
The end is where we start from. ibid. ‘Little Gidding

I don’t look upon this like it’s the end, I look upon it like it’s moving on, you know. It’s almost like my work here's done. I can’t imagine Jesus going, ‘Oh, I've told a few people in Bethlehem I’m the son of God, can I just stay here with Mum and Dad now?’ No. You gotta move on. You gotta spread the word. You gotta go to Nazareth, please.’ And that’s, very much like ... me. The Office s2e6: Interview, Brent, BBC 2002

Our universe is definitely going to end. It’s just a question of how and when. The battle will be between two forces at the heart of the cosmos. Will gravity prevail? Or will expansion dominate and overcome? The end is coming and it could be sooner than you imagine. How the Universe Works s3e2: The End of the Universe, Discovery 2014
The universe isn’t gently advancing, its in a violent struggle. Two forces strive for control. ibid.
In the 1970s astronomers were completely stunned … the galaxies were spinning too fast, far too fast … nine-tenths of their mass was missing … They called it dark matter … Astronomers have mapped out the distribution of dark matter using gravitational lensing … Dark matter fills the universe. ibid.
The acceleration baffled the scientists … The new energy seemed to be coming from nothing … dark energy. ibid.
The universe will end in one of two ways: the Big Rip or the Big Freeze. ibid.
So when did dark energy begin to control the universe? ibid.
As space expanded, dark energy increased in comparison with it. ibid.
The universe is heading for a Big Freeze. ibid.
A spontaneous glitch in the fabric of Space/Time could trigger a Phase Transition of Space. A tiny new universe that spreads out, replacing the old. It could happen because it has happened before. ibid.

We view growth as something positive … Economic growth is somehow supposed to continue indefinitely … If that growth fails to materialise we panic. But why? System Error: How Will Capitalism End? Amazon 2018
Growth is the fundamental principle of our economic system. Capitalism only works when the economy grows. And Karl Marx recognised something else as well: it is this growth that will eventually destroy the system itself. ibid.
‘The idea that as human beings all we want ever is more and more stuff doesn’t really stack up … How much is enough?’ ibid. Professor Tim Jackson
‘The development of capitalist production makes it constantly necessary to keep increasing the amount of capital laid out. It compels the capitalist to keep constantly expanding his capital, in order to preserve it.’ ibid. Karl Marx
The genie was out of the bottle. The brave new world of financial capitalism could no longer be constrained. And great efforts were made to sell it as a controllable and secure system. ibid.
‘The need of a constantly expanding market for its products chases the bourgeoisie over the entire surface of the globe. It must nestle everywhere, settle everywhere, establish connexions everywhere.’ ibid. Karl Marx
For decades growth was kept on life support with debt. ibid.
‘In every stock-jobbing swindle everyone knows that some time or other the crash must come, but everyone hopes that it may fall on the head of his neighbour. ‘Après moi le déluge!’ is the watchword of every capitalist.’ ibid. Karl Marx
More and more people are apparently willing to sacrifice democracy, peace and the environment. ibid.
Its end is closer than we think. ibid.
