The Universe is a sort of cosmic building block of the Omniverse. Universes in a Multiverse share commons laws of physics, and systems of logic, but differ in initial starting conditions upon being formed, and thus have entirely different timelines.
Universes, unlike all Archverses after them, aren't made out of other verses, but instead, cosmic structures, elementary particles, and just generally all are absolutely verse. Universes differ very slightly in size and average out in the 100 billion light-year range.
Each Universe has a set of laws that govern everything inside without exception. Their laws can be broken, however, objects aren't actively breaking a law at any time. They simply stop existing or stop being contained by the Universe, as to counteract the law-breaking.
Our Universe is a 93 billion light-year LNB-7 which was created 13.8 billion years ago. It grows very slowly in size, however, its growth is still faster than light speed, due to the potential of dark matter.
Its laws of physics include: the Law of Gravitation (objects attract each other with a force directly proportional to the product of the masses of the objects and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them), Newton's laws of Motion, Coloumb's law (force between the two electric charges reduces to a quarter of its former value when the distance between them is doubled), Kepler's law (each planet revolves round the Sun in an elliptical orbit with the Sun at one focus), Law of Conservation of Energy (energy can neither be created nor destroyed), General Relativity (each planet puts space curvative, makes space and time relative to each other, and make time dilation possible dependent to speed of light), Dark Energy (likely a law which is the cause of the acceleration of expansion), and more.
Dark energy is a substance not a law
Elementary particles include quarks, gluons, leptons, and bosons. Together they construct protons and neutrons, which finally make up atoms, who are the building blocks of nearly everything in the Universe. (With the exception of dark matter). Atoms together clump up to form molecules; the arrangement of atoms in these molecules are what create very unique and chaotic solids, gasses, and liquids. A great example of this phenomena are crystals.
There are 4 fundamental forces that makeup everything: Weak (quarks and gluons), strong (nucleons), electromagnetism, and gravity.

- Big Slurp - This theory posits that the universe currently exists in a false vacuum and that it could become a true vacuum at any moment. In order to best understand the false vacuum collapse theory, one must first understand the Higgs field which permeates the universe. Much like an electromagnetic field, it varies in strength based upon its potential. A true vacuum exists so long as the universe exists in its lowest energy state, in which case the false vacuum theory is irrelevant. However, if the vacuum is not in its lowest energy state (a false vacuum), it could tunnel into a lower-energy state. This is called vacuum decay. This has the potential to fundamentally alter our universe; in more audacious scenarios even the various physical constants could have different values, severely affecting the foundations of matter, energy, and spacetime. It is also possible that all structures will be destroyed instantaneously, without any forewarning.
Each possibility described so far is based on a very simple form for the dark energy equation of state. However, as the name is meant to imply, very little is currently known about the physics of dark energy. If the theory of inflation is true, the universe went through an episode dominated by a different form of dark energy in the first moments of the Big Bang, but inflation ended, indicating an equation of state far more complex than those assumed so far for present-day dark energy. It is possible that the dark energy equation of state could change again, resulting in an event that would have consequences which are extremely difficult to predict or parametrize. As the nature of dark energy and dark matter remain enigmatic, even hypothetical, the possibilities surrounding their coming role in the universe are currently unknown. None of these theoretic endings for the universe are certain.
