I am just a poor boy and my story's seldom told

In the blue corner, massing in at nothing at all, fighting out of Spontaneous Changes, undefeated under the laws of Thermodynamics, the challenger! Let's give it up for Entropy!

In the red corner, massing in at all the stuff in the universe, fighting out of Poughkeepsie, NY, undefeated, the heavyweight champion of the world--Gravity!

Will the universe eventually dissolve into an undifferentiated layer of space pablum, or is there enough stuff in the system for gravity to pull it together?

Let's go. Good luck, touch gloves, and come out fighting.
