What a fascinating and educational trivia! We are consciousness, and we will see it all, however; not in body but in the One Mind of the Creator Source. Remember: "Everything is energy, and that is all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want, and you can not help but get that reality. It can be no other way.This is NOT philosophy this is physics". Albert Einstein. RIP. See ya'll in 4 billion years. Ha-ha-ha! Take care of the only home we have, our mother earth, she is hurting right now. And when mama ain't happy, no one is. Be well and many blessings. Happy belated 4th of July.

Concerning the last 'fact', well yeah, we have just recently managed to get a couple of spacecraft 'outside' of the Solar System after 40+ years of travel, so we have our work cut out for us to get 'outside' of the Milky Way to look back at it. Concerning #4, it has recently been speculated that a dwarf galaxy passing through the Milky Way may account for the creation of the Sun and Solar System. When the Milky Way and Andromeda merge, it will set off the creation of millions and millions of new stars. I'm almost 70 now, so I don't think I'll be around 4 billion years from now, so one of you younger people will have send me a text and tell me all about it.

The latest calculations from scientist show that the entire observable universe if it was the size of a lightbulb would be at the centre of Pluto and this is the true size of the observable and unobservable universe. Think of the possibilities there!

Apparently nothing will happen, stars are so distant from each other that very little interaction will occur!jch,

Perhaps "intelligent life" is much too lofty a title for us. All the miracles around & we make war, pillage & vandalize.

If I could, time-wise, I would like to stand afar and witness the coming collision and see the result.
