Let's say you decide to walk backwards into a black hole. Everything looks normal at first but as you get close everything is speeding up. When you're really close everything is going extremely fast. As you cross the event horizon, infinite time passes. (I know saying "infinite time passes" is a contradiction but you know what I mean.) So what happens before infinite time passes? How could it end? I can think of only three possibilities. Everything starts to fall into the same black hole you are falling into including other black holes until everything falls in at the exact same time. The other possibility is that the universe gets stuck in a pattern which repeats forever. (This can't happen if the universe has an element of randomness tho; Can it?) The other idea is that the universe goes on always changing forever. If it seems impossible to imagine, try imagining an irrational number. What do you all think? Any of these impossible? Can you think of a different possibility? (Other than the universe ending instantly at some arbitrary time for no reason :tongue2: ) BTW: How can you say that anything is ever in a black hole if it takes until the universe ends to be in it? How could Hawking Radiation have occured if there was no matter in the black hole in the first place?
