Theory: Black Holes Contain Universes

"According to a mind-bending study released this past spring, a black hole is actually a tunnel between universes—a type of wormhole. The matter the black hole attracts doesn't collapse into a single point, as has been predicted, but rather gushes out a "white hole" at the other end of the black one, the theory goes."

This theory is very intriguing! It's like, God's way of recycling! I love this, because we believe that matter has always existed and always will exist. And since God follows the same laws of the universe that the rest of us follow, isn't it nice to know that the rules can account for the purpose of a black hole too?

Isn't the universe amazing?

By the way, this totally makes me think of Carl Sagan's book "Contact". He has similar ideas about the purpose of black holes. Though this theory goes a little further. Either way, I find them both very intriguing. If you like this type of stuff at all, you should read "Contact"! I'll even let you borrow my copy. :)

Nerd out.
