Black Hole Theory

  1. Apr 8, 2014 #1
    Has it ever been explored in science that the other side of a black hole could have caused the "Big Bang"? My thinking is that if a black hole sucks in matter and compresses this matter to a point where it can no longer contain it; would that not cause a collapse on the other end?

    It has been thought that our universe is just an expanding bubble and that there could be other expanding bubbles that are home to other dimensions that we cannot see yet. Well my thought is perhaps when a black hole collapses on itself that the friction could cause the heat needed to cause a big bang which would result in the creation of another one of these dimensional bubbles that expand outward.

    This would be a rather simple theory, but has anyone ever thought about black holes in this way? or done any research into something similar?

    Welcome to PF;

    No. Not how black holes are currently thought to work.

    Where? Please provide a reference.
    To my knowledge there is no credible evidence for the Universe being some sort of "bubble".

    It sounds like you have been getting your science in easy-to-swallow bites off a pop science show or three.
    This is going to sound harsh:
    If you are serious about pursuing this, you will do better to learn actual science instead.
    There is plenty of good information online for you.

    ... it is very easy to have such thoughts. There are lots of them. The hard part is producing evidence to support them.
    Until you do, what you have is called "baseless speculation" - and there is no reason to entertain it seriously.

    It certainly sounds like a lot of the science fiction I read as a kid.

    The current expansion does not look like something exploding or like matter appearing from any kind of reversal of a black-hole process. There is no way mere frictional heating can provide the energy to exceed the speed of light - which is what your "simple" theory requires.

    Fact is we do not know what happens inside the event horizon of a black hole (the only way the phrase "inside a black hole" makes sense). Our best models predict a singularity of some kind - but that is usually considered to be a flaw in the model.

    If you would like to make sense of the things you can learn about black holes - we can help.
    But we don't do baseless speculation.
