Space-Time will evaporate metaphorically, in that it is a relative construct... consider that this universe arises from 'math'. In our universe, everything is 'relative'. There is no perceived existence without it being relative to some prior perceived existence. From pure nothing, set theory shows the route to Infinity via potential: You get there from the empty-set=0, the set containing the empty set=1, the set containing that=2, and so on. Infinity emerges from nothing using math. Next imagine the infinity relative to itself, and those infinities relative to each other.. for infinity. Higher 'levels' of infinity emerge. Inside these imagined potential infinities, there are subsets, patterns if you will, that consist of portions that follow any set of arbitrary 'rules.' One such subset is the 'universe' where the subset of relative infinities is taken from what we call 'physical laws' as the 'rules'. This subset is purely imaginary; however, following the 'relative' path, we see our exact universe, including you and me emerge from that. All possible universe configurations exist purely via relative 'math' of infinite infinities. Using this logic, you find that all possible data configurations are possible (e.g Hilbert Space emerges), and every possible 'universe' (the multiverse) emerges as a different subset with a different set of arbitrary rules. All universes are subsets of the infinite 'everything' potential. Next imagine our universe's true form is as a wave-pattern potential. I like to think of it this way: there exists a background as an all-encompassing "wave" of every possible potential next-state and every possible pattern. Inside that wave you will find the pattern of this universe. Now also imagine consciousness as a pattern in the wave. And think of your entire life as one of the "paths we surf" on a small portion of the wave. The path is not real. The wave potential is not real either. Using this approach it is easy to see that all universes (for all levels and every type of physics) arise from pure nothing. Time does not exist, except as an illusion. The path you surf (every moment of your life) is always there. And ultimately, we are just patterns in an imaginary math pattern simulation. There can be no such thing as true 'death.' Your 'pattern', like the number 3, is based on relative math potentials and not any imagined reality, so the implication is that it must always exist.
