Thought experiment:

 

How do we avoid/prevent/escape annihilation via vacuum decay with potential future technologies? 

 

(Any ideas, however far-fetched, are welcome so long as they reside somewhere within the realm of plausibility.)

Open a portal to a different universe that has more life left in it and move there.

Thanks! Okay, there's one (and I guess also a potential answer to the FP?)

 

Any others?

A vacuum decay would occur with no warning, so no escape.

So presumably Step 1 would be figuring out some way we WOULD have a warning, yes? Or alternatively, figuring out how to prevent/avoid it long before it ever occurred.

Not possible. Again, vacuum decay occurs at the speed of light.

I think apprenticecat means we work out how to avoid it before the process begins at all? Like 'dodging' a bullet by getting out of the way before the gun fires.

 

But I don't think it is a thing that can happen. And I will be happy In this belief because I will only be proved wrong post-everything that has ever existed.
