I read about that. Seems a bit of a mystery to the scientists.

A mystery that is very much well worth investigating, and I look forward to each and every new question that results from things discovered about our universe.

For example: If that does that, why does the other do that? Lets find out...

Great! For every answer they find, there will be more questions. There will never be answers to explain our universe. The universe owes us nothing. Mother nature will not allow it.

Surely we found answers already. Just look at what Curiosity is doing on Mars or what the Hubble telescope discovered yet or Einstein's relativity theory!

We have lots of new information, but not yet a lot of answers.

There are two groups of people. Those who WANT or NEED or HAVE to believe in UFO's, and those that will look at the evidence and then decide. I'm in the middle. I think that some UFO's simply cannot be explained by science as we know it at present, and we are making new discoveries about the universe every day.

I remain quite open to being persuaded one way or the other. At any rate it is all mind expanding enjoyable stuff which I enjoy :))

When all is said and done, I wonder if the number of black holes in the multiverse is equal to the number of theoretical universeses? (it' really hard to pluralize something that starts with uni). What would that would mean?

What would existing as information on the skin of a singularity, with a duplicate inside explain...The big bang?...expansion?...dark energy?...the fabric of space?... entanglement?...particles appearing out of nowhere?...the multiverse itself??????

I started thinking about black holes, when I read an article about the possibility that we could be holograms, when I read another about the multiverse theory, things just seemed to make more sense to me. After posting the stuff below, I decided to look up "multiverse"....here is a link that generally explains what I was trying to say...

Sounds more likely than not.

You cannot physically "touch" a hologram, they are projections.

Perception is reality...if we think we are touching it, we are.

Depends upon what you call reality. I might be under the "impression" that a hologram is real, but as soon as I can put my hand through it, I will realise that it isn't. But, that doesn't mean to say that I wouldn't enjoy the effect of it.

Actually, holograms are real. They're made up of photons of light which are real. They are not solid, but they are real.

/nit-picking. :P

Still, a lot of people think something is real only when it can be touched or if they can see it with their own eyes (although a hologram is something that's really there...)

'ello nitpickers :-)

[Alan Freeman voice off]

A hologram might be in real time, with real photons, but it is not a tangible manifestation of reality. You can't touch it, pick it up, or even shoot it. It is a projection. Technology may have a means in the not too distant future, of inventing a webcam that can project a holographic image of the person you are talking to via Skype. But you won't be able to shake their hand!
