      The thing is that it COULD theoretically happen IF the Higgs field is in fact metastable, if it isn't and it's actually stable this would probably never happen

    Imagine we'd just be instantly wiped out by the vacuum decay moving at the speed of light and it's not like you'd be able to see it coming. If somehow time was slow enough that you could react to it then you wouldn't even be able to see it before it reached you anyway. Kinda crazy

    Because the universe is infinite, all possibilities exist inside of it. That means this vacuum thing is already inside of it, growing at the speed of light. Don't worry though, it's not here yet because I'm pretty sure I exist.

    Wait, if the vacuum decay is caused by a _particle_ enterting a lower energy state, how does it propogate through space? Does it somehow influence the field itself or are the particles randomly popping in and out of existence enough to propogate it still or what?
