There's a sci-fi short story called the " million names of God" or the "billion names of God" something along those lines ( can't recall the author.)
In it the Buddhist monks believe:"once all the names of God are written the universe will end". In the story ; there's A monastery full of monks
who've been working on it. They finally collect enough money to have a supercomputer built and installed to find and list the"billion names of God".
They are gathered around it eagerly watching as the computer is finishing its task. As it prints the last 5 names early in the dark morning the stars
in the sky start to go out one by one .
