Default short story premise

For a meditative sci-fi thing I'm working on for fun. I haven't worked out the details. Let me know what you think:

Quote:
In the far distant future, humans are able to overcome physical reality and travel through time and space. Roaming the universe unimpeded, man and woman exercise an absolute, God-like freedom, following their every whim and living — as far as they know — forever. But something troubling has begun in the deep fringes of the cosmos: the universe is rapidly shrinking and will soon collapse, destroying all memory. Facing oblivion, the last human — the Last Man — contemplates the end as reality unravels around him.

So is this a spin on I am Legend? I like the idea, futuristic really deep thinking with what I'm going to assume is a lot of openings for social commentary if that's your bag. I'd read it.

If they can travel through time, how can the universe coming to an end even be a problem? These human god types should be just dandy as long as they stay away from the Big Crunch at the end.

Although they could build a nice restaurant there.

I would think that a being able to transcend time would acquire a view of time that wouldn't so mind endings. But maybe that's Vonnegut's aliens from Slaughterhouse Five talking.
 

This is a stupid idea.
