I was just reading your message and I know of another thing paper can help explain, at least in theory. Wormholes: two black holes stuck together. take a piece of paper, bend it in half. (A kleenex may work better with this; it`s softer and easier to bend.) So then you have paper that looks like this:/\ Push two points on either side together
/ \ so it looks a little like this: /\

Space can be folded or creased by gravity just like paper can be folded or creased by your hands. when two black holes are brought together, like fingers on your paper, they could form a wormhole, ie your fingers touching. cool huh
