Theoretically lifespan will hit the dead end wall of the universe undergoing heat / expansion death. We can only hope that whatever intelligences in the next 50+ years do form that they will be able to work-around the infinite energy problems of making multiversal travel possible as I fear we semi-evolved simians won’t be smart enough for that little problem.

Alternatively, if multiversal travel is not possible the only other possibility I can think of is doing what some of the deluded and uneducated feard from CERN, that it would somehow trigger a new big bang.

If a small, localised big bang event (small only on a cosmic level!) could somehow be triggered from the vacuum then we would of course have a infinite supply of both energy and matter, ensuring the survivibility of life forever.
