: : 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.

: Eh.. : -Flagg

I personally don't believe in actual infinities existing in our cosmos. There can only be potential infinities.

Therefore, a blackhole as you state, is an actual infinite; could you state how this exists?
