            it’s wrong based on the existing system for evaluating interstellar interactions; therefore, you must remove the ejatotroller or release a new version

                                  I actually don't find this idea really terrifying. It may be such from some sort of a universal perspective, but from our human perspective, sudden disappearance, without any suffering or any grieving loved ones left behind is actually quite humane. One second you exist, the next everything you've ever interacted with along with you - doesn't. No time to comprehend your life ending and all the potential pleasures lost either. This is not a bad ending at all.

This hypothesis was floating around for several decades and was entirely dependent on the weight of the top quark. With the discovery of the Higgs Boson we also gained a precise measurement of the top quark. The upshot is that the metastable vacuum theory has been disproved and is no longer valid. That’s my understanding anyway.
