The accelerating universe discoveries have implications in another
field. Two modern physicists have been vying for a special status,
to be remembered by future generations as the great 20th Century
theologian. Dyson & Tipler have each prescribed how to achieve
immortality in the long run... Dyson in an open universe and Tipler
in a closed one (see The Physics of Immortality) .

Which one is remembered for all time, and which becomes a footnote,
will depend on confirmation of results like the accelerating universe.
