AKA: they may be either on the verge of discovering its possible to breakdown and recreate reality, or that magic is possible.\

hmmm Interesting theory.  I'd like to read more about it if I can find a dumbed down but more detailed explanation.

From reading those two articles I would think what they are seeing is the potential life span of the universe. That the higgs bosson gives not only mass but also controls the life span of the universe.

more like the probability of instability. For all they know the other universe being born has already happened.

hell it might just be what the "Dark Flow" is; a second universe inside this one impacting the known universe. Plus we can only calculate as far out as we can see; which we know there is something beyond the visible universe.

All it says is that the universe has a definite end point. I guess it says a little about stability, in the sense that knowing the mechanism for cell death leads to instability which we call cancer.

that's because the articles are dumbed down and simplify the matter. It means there will be an end point to the universe once the instability reaches its breaking point. But this end point is also a birth point of a new universe.

Maybe. I've read the original several days before you posted those here.
