I am looking to identify a story that I read around 2001 (it is probably much older). Someone showed me the story on pages printed from the internet, and it was attributed to Isaac Asimov (although I cannot state that is the true author).
The story is told in glimpses at different points of time in the future. In each glimpse, humans are asking a more and more "intelligent" computer how to prevent the universe from collapsing into a singularity in the future, and the computer states it needs more computational power and resources to solve this problem. At some point, man becomes one with the computer, and the computer exists in hyperspace (or subspace?).
In the final glimpse, it is the end of time and the universe is collapsing into a singularity. At the instant the universe reaches the singularity, the computer figures out how to prevent it and says "Let there be light" and the universe begins to expand again.
Is anyone familiar with this story?
