Cosmological Wonderment

It makes me sad that in this life I won’t get to know how the Universe works. I won’t know what was there before the Big Bang. I won’t know how the Universe ends. Does everything get sucked into a monstrous black hole, and is that the end of it? Maybe a new Universe emerges on the other side of the singularity, exists, and then too collapses. If existence of the Universe, or some universe, oscillates, is it similar each time, or drastically different? Does it solidify another time with different physical laws? Does life emerge? How frequent is life? Where did all the 3-dimensional space come from? Why is there anything at all?

Maybe the afterlife will be like flipping over the Trivial Pursuit card of Life, and there on the back will be all the answers. I can only hope.
