It took 225 million years for humans to evolve from the first shrew like mammals and hominids only exist for 6 million years (homo sapiens 200k years). I really doubt in a billion years from now there will be anything living, that remotely resembles humans as we know them today, either because we will have evolved beyond recognition, or because we went extinct all together.

A billion years sounds like an infinity, but the fact that the great story of multi-cellular life on earth is beyond his half way mark already, strikes me as a little bit depressing.

I hope there are Ancients WHO aecedent into PURE Energy and left STARGATES all around on those habitable planets. OR Will we be the ANCIENTS?

Maybe we're already a collective of post-humans running in a computer matrix powered by a red dwarf. And life on Earth is but a short 'retro' vacation where we're allowed to forget our real selves (a slice of processing in a great main-frame) for around 80 years. Once that 'life' on Earth is complete, we get to again rejoin the many iterations of ourselves, to share the time spent vacationing on the little blue planet that was authentically crafted in real space™ far away from other alien life so as to not break the illusion of solitude.

I think it would be more interesting to discover the universe by our own.
First, we need to unite the people on earth and learn how to become better humans without wars, greed and borders.

Is this narrator God? How does he know the stars will all die out? Because science? If there is matter aftermath from a super nova it will create a nebula, doesn't matter clump together via gravity? Wouldn't that birth new stars? What about the theory that black holes create new universes... this guy seems to have it all figured out. Not to mention if we can travel away from a star then WE DONT NEED STARS TO SURVIVE!

#5 From the evidence, our Universe is a closed system. No energy is being injected into it. Therefore the second law of thermodynamics applies.
Entropy will increase, with the number of new stars being created slowing relative to the old stars dying, until eventually all the stars will die out.

As to black holes creating new universes, that is possibly true. That would not give a new lease of life to this universe. It would be the beginning of a new different universe.
Who knows, if we survive long enough and our knowledge increases we might find a way to escape our dying universe into a new universe, provided we find one that has physical constants that allow us to exist. It is possible that matter would be different. What if there is no such thing as oxygen in the new universe?

As to not needing stars to survive. All the complex forms on Earth only exist because the Sun is bathing us in highly ordered energy, which plants use to grow, which plants are eaten by animals, etc.
We have never travelled away from a star, only hopped from one body orbiting a star to another. I don't know where you got that idea.
