Andromeda and the milky way galaxy's relative size is not easily determined as though we can see the entirety of Andromeda and recognise it as a
fellow spiral galaxy of a similar type to what we believe the milky way to be the light from our own galaxy and the radio emissions are often occluded
by gas and dust so the size estimates do vary by quite some degree, however it is believed as since our own galaxy has already absorbed at least one
other much smaller galaxy it is probably about one and a half to twice the size of Andromeda though andromeda has also performed the same
cannabalistic act on the pegasus spur galaxy which is the orbital remnant of another galaxy that merged with Andromeda, as for the red dwarf life
cycle - yes I said trillions and you might want to reference this article.
Now note I do not necassarily agree with this artice as I believe the entire universe is in a state of changable quantum flux which in effect can
cause localised and general reality and physical law alterations within it's own unknown parameters.
You mention you do not plan to be here in 2.5 billion years, well leaving the consrevation of energy alone for a moment consider this.
If two parralel reality's can be said to exist and they both stem from an original single reality then in both with minor difference two of you exist
now if one of you dies but the other continues on what energy that may exist between these two reality's may still link the two consciousness
When a photon is split it creates two photons with half the energy of the original if you follow my reasoning.
Now time or the flow of the universal constant may progress as relatively lower rates as you move out from the prime reality so a version of you
further out at right angles to the time space continuii may receive through this energy link a slight prescient perception of strong energetic
interaction's closer to the prime reality creating the illusion of seeing into the future when what is percieved is prime reality echoes that fade
outward and backward in relitive time flow rate but you may also like a consertine paper man when you cut the head off one but fold it back together
still be alive even with one portion of your parrellel being destroyed as the entirety has merely been thined and not eradicated.
Hint when you observe a photon or any other point of observation according to Schroedinger you change it's nature (cat and cyanide in a box) so
therefor you are a quantum being with undefined potential.
Just hypothesising but think on it.
You or your consciousness is not necessarily dead when your body dies and maybe never will be but it may become victim to a type of radioactive decay
curve degradation over time toward the end of this time space continuii, however I suspect it would merely be like the universe speeding up from your
perspective which coupled with expansion and eventuall decay may make it appear constant in the perception of such a state of being.
