It is an ordinary day, people all over Earth are living their lives like it is any other. The hours and minutes go by, and then in a second everyone is gone. They are erased and it is like they never existed. It isn't only them, the entire universe has been erased with them. The entire universe and everything within it has been destroyed.
Everything and everyone, except for two people.
A man and a woman who went to bed on the final day and then awoke to find themselves in a ship with no idea of what happened or where they are. The last thing they remember is going asleep, now they're in some strange place. They wake in separate rooms, naked. There are some clothes left for them and then soon after, find each other. They speak the same language and come from similar or identical cultures. They are young adults.
The ship is the size of a mansion and inside has a luxurious modern design, it may defy the law of physics. Inside, it is more like a house with futuristic elements. It has living rooms, a library, a swimming pool, a gym, a garden. Absolutely anything you would ever find in the nicest mansion you will find there, it even has a bowling alley and small home theatre. There are three bedrooms, one for the man, one for the woman and a third meant for them if they become a couple. In the 'house' is every single film, series and game ever created, book ever written and song ever composed. There's a browsable archive of the internet available on the PCs. These are artifacts from old Earth, they can be used. The ship has agricultural rooms and a limitless supply of every food. It is cozy and beautiful.
Looking out the windows, it is clear that they are in space. Stars may even be visible if they're in a galaxy.
There is a room where a large display is waiting for them, there is a sign noting them to push a button. They may find this room on the first day or later, more likely the first day since it's a mansion that can be explored in a single day. They push a button and a small video starts that explains to them their situation.
First of all, the prior universe from which they came is gone. Permanently. They are the only survivors of that universe. This is a cycle that has repeated itself many times before. When a universe has fulfilled its purpose, it is destroyed and from it an entirely new universe is created in its place. Two people are chosen from the old universe to seed and spread across the new one, thus maintaining the only constant across realities (human existence).
They are on a ship, which is on its way to New Earth. Their goal once there will be to repopulate humanity's new world. Their genetics have been modified so that inbreeding won't be an issue for their immediate descendants until humanity is once again diverse. While on the ship, they are infertile.
The ship will arrive at its location in 100 years. While on the ship, they will remain eternally young and healthy. They will remain young but not invincible, they can harm and even kill themselves. Upon reaching their destination they will once again continue to age. They be present during the entire journey for the ship requires occasional maintenance that only humans can perform. Also, they must care for the agricultural gardens from time to time. The video includes guides on how to maintain the ship and gardens.
There is no way off the ship until it reaches its destination, upon which they will be forcibly (but gently) ejected to the new world.
There are no other explanations and the video shuts off. There are no answers. It is not clear who made the ship or the video.
My simple question is this, how do you think most people would react and fare on this journey? Do you think the average person would make it?
Interesting things to ponder include: What if they don't like each other? What if they fall in love? The duration of the journey is 100 years, this coupled with the confined environment and isolation could have extreme psychological effects. How different do you think it could play out if it was longer, shorter? Do you think they will be able to last the entire trip and fulfil their purpose?
notes: The man and woman are modern humans and this happened today.
