: Is there a theoretical difference between a Black Hole and the Big Crunch?? (Both are immense gravity wells) A Black Hole has no theoreticle max mass, hence it could absorb the Big Crunch; yet the Big Crunch is everything including all Black Holes. And if the Big Crunch follows the same basic rule of no max mass, why would the Big Bang occur at all.

Lau: With the superstring theory, the big bang is seen as break down from a 10 (or 11 or 12 etc.. depending on which theory) dimensional universe (false-vacuum)to what we now have 4 dimensional space-time. (the vaccum state) The big bang ocurred because nature prefers the lowest energy state and not because of the big crunch.
