Black Holes AND Big Bangs
« on: 01/09/2004 04:31:15 »
It is said that the matter in a black hole is compressed to a singularity and in effect the matter has left the universe leaving behind only the gravity well.  At the singularity the known laws of physics do not apply, time and space become meaningless.  It is also said that the big bang arose from a singularity and looking past a certian point in time the known laws of physics do not apply, time and space become meaningless.  QUESTION:  Is it possible that since these two points are both singularities as noted above that they could be said to be the SAME point in some sense but opposite ends of a dipole?  Matter falling into black holes throughout time and space come roaring out at the instant of the big bang?[?]

There's been lots of speculation on that subject, and since we don't have any good physics to cover this situation, it's a great foundation for wild ideas.

I don't know the answer, so I'm speculating too, but here goes: There is no singularity at the center of a black hole, except in our gravitational theory. The mass is still there, since we can sense its gravity. We can't sense EM radiation, since the escape velocity >C, but that isn't the only case. (There is also dark matter, which we can't sense any EM radiation from.) The mass, linear and angular momentum, and charge of a black hole are all conserved, which I enter as evidence to support my contention that there is no singularity in a black hole. The physics is actually alive and well in there. In due time, our understanding will improve, and we'll be able to describe its nature in a meaningful way, without invoking any other universes.
