: No one can know anything whatsoever about a singulaity : as all the laws of physics break down at infinities Well.... Here are some THEORIES. A mass that becomes a black hole will achieve the title of singularity when its gravitational force is such that it collapses on itself. In a matter of speaking, it even swallows itself. This would lead one to believe that, like you said, that it becomes a pocket dimension. We could even speculate that our own universe is a black hole in another one. The thing that breaks this theory, tho, is the fact that it would not account for the missing 2% (I think) of matter. WHereas, if one would like to think that a black hole in OUR universe contains 98% of our matter, that would well account for the "missing" portion of our own. I'm rambling. The fact is, however, that we really dunno, seeing as it is impossible to A) retrieve data from beyond the Schwartzchild limit, and B) (as mentioned by RF) the laws of physics as WE know it, are absolutly meaningless in the warped space of a black hole. In any case, be sure to differentiate the worm hole idea in regards to what the singularity is, because the worm hole is a product of the warping of space time AROUND the singularity.
