I could be wrong but I think that is unknowable given the current state of physics. Physics remains full of mysteries that are even now giving themselves up to humanity through science and mathematics.

According to theoretical physicists at some point in the very distant future (<--ha there's a time reference right there) there will be no more change. The degradation of all the matter and energy in the universe will reach the ultimate state of inert uniformity. You can thank ET's username for opening this can of worms.
The temperature of a substance typically varies with the average speed of the particles that it contains, raised to the second power; that is, it is proportional to the mean kinetic energy of its constituent particles. Formally, temperature is defined as the derivative of the internal energy with respect to the entropy.

In the Standard Model, protons, a type of baryon, are theoretically stable because baryon number (quark number) is conserved (under normal circumstances; however, see chiral anomaly). Therefore, protons will not decay into other particles on their own, because they are the lightest (and therefore least energetic) baryon.
There are times when I am in deep relaxation when I feel I'm about to be struck withTHE answer.
