Klein Bottle Thermos Flask

Heat life-or-death
  [vote for,

A Klein Bottle in which the surface is a double wall of silvered glass enclosing a vacuum.

Keeps the Universe from getting hotter or colder, depending on the starting temperature.

Note: If taken outside the Universe, may have unpredictable consequences

       But the amount of cold stuff in the universe is vastly more than the amount of hot stuff, so the average temperature of the universe must be close to the 3°K background radiation. There's a risk then, that as soon as you make this object you'll freeze to death.

       He who violates the law of thermodynamics puts the Universe under arrest.   

       Which I assume, given that this is a Borg idea, is the whole idea.

       On average, it's already not.

       //a double wall of silvered glass enclosing a vacuum//   

       How about putting the vacuum on the outside of the silvered glass wall, and the universe on the inside?

       You mean just how it is at the moment?
