Oi. The stars are born because on compressions (i.e. shock waves) in the more dense interstellar medium (i.e. nebulae).

They 'die' because they run out of fuel.

The question whether or not the universe will have a definitive 'end' is still up in the air. Cosmologists are not sure yet if our universe will expand forever or contract in a 'big crunch' or even stop its expansion and become static. We aren't even sure if our universe is 'infinite' or 'finite' yet.

Rest assured, though, we are working on these questions right now.

The question I have is why are humans so narcissistic that we assume we are so important in the universe, that we were created by a will.
