The Thermodymanics of Hell-John Ellis has this cutie
1) If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose. 2) If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over...A few possibilities Ellis isn't counting on. He assumes that Hell is a place with standard thermodynamics. Just like you can't point your starship and fly to Heaven, you can't fly to Hell either, although a few locales might look like it. It might not be a closed system, either; heat might be vented off by other means or implode into a black hole. However, the key point of Hell isn't the temperature but the isolation from God. That's the key thing to remember; it's not about pitchforks and flames, it's being on your own for eternity seperated from God.
