    My thoughts exactly there's another me when I go to sleep and start dream I am then living in another Universe .
    Count how many parts of your body has a pair ie what part of the Universe is the other me ??
    Going to sleep to see what's happening to the other me
    Is that the Heaven everyone is going to end up or if the other one of me in the other Universe die do I also die here on planet earth or is one of me left to go on and live ??
    I know u think I'm a crackpot lol :))

    A genuine question. Is it really believed that singularity in its true form is achievable? That in our universe, stars collapsed to a point of INFINITE mass? I find that difficult to buy. Infinity doesnt seem to be a term our universe uses.Souns a bit like our math is off.

    I wonder (And kind of hope) if "Event horizon" will ever become a saying for getting stuck, like not being able to leave a situation. For example addiction, or something. Perhaps someone has a horrible gambling addiction and a person says "They need to stop" and then someone could respond with "Too late, they entered the event horizon a long time ago" as in they are now addicted to gambling. Idk. It sounds like a nice saying, thinking back on it I've actually used that before to describe how dumb someone was so I wonder if that's why I like the idea of it being a saying.

    Why would a star collapse after death if it essentially runs out of fuel? This doesn't logically make any sense. In order for something to collapse in such a fashion it would require more energy than it's collective mass.

    I have to wonder, because quantum mechanics states that nothing can be smaller than a planck, wouldn't it be fair to say that certain small or perhaps microscopic things would be unable to become a black hole because their schwartzchild's radius would end up making them smaller than a planck?

    what happens to fundamental particles inside a black hole? Do electrons still hold their structure inside a black hole? or are they compressed together with other particles to become some other type of particle?

    • Veil of Isis
      Veil of Isis 8 days ago

      It depends on how large the black hole is. If it is a supermassive black hole, then the time it takes for an electron to go from just past the event horizon to the singularity is a very long time, in some cases a whole life time. It wouldn't feel any forces acting on it during this time. Only at a given distance from the singularity will the electrons be ripped into their constituent subatomic particles, ie, I think 2 downs and an up quark, or something like that.
      The event horizon's surface area is a representation of the smallest possible space that information can take up. Electrons, protons, neutrons, etc. -- they all take up HUGE amounts of space, where if they were broken down to they're simplest quanta, they would be Planck areas' in size. That's why Earth would actually be the size of a peanut if it was broken down into its quanta.
