5 Unsolved Black Hole Mysteries
Have you ever wondered what would happen to you if you were caught inside a black hole? Ever asked yourself how it would feel to be inside this space phenomenon, which is basically composed of dark matter.
The precise nature and behaviour of black holes remain an open question to most experts, yet, it causes fascination for countless scholars. Known for their power to suppress anything known in the material world, they are usually viewed with utmost horror and respect.
However, there is still more than mere destruction for these ancient cosmic monstrosities. Here are some fascinating unsolved mysteries regarding black holes.
5 Black Hole Tele-Transportation
Stephen Hawkings said once that if you got caught inside a black hole, you would most probably appear in a different universe. Quantum physics proposes the idea of a huge number of parallel universes that we are unable to perceive.
For this reason, black holes are more complex than we originally think. Referring to this transmigration as merely a “different universe” can sound a little vague to start with. A different universe could be understood as a different dimension, with different rules and reality. This would be a dimension where you have not adapted at all.
Imagine that you had the right equipment, and were strong enough to survive being absorbed by a black hole, and suddenly you appear in a “place” (if it could still be called like that) with a totally different set of rules. How would you feel? How far can the human psyche be taken by something that, by far, transcends our horizons? Sometimes reality goes further than fiction, and unquestionably this is one of those cases.
4 A Very Dark Heaven
Some spiritualists speculate that black holes are the place we go when we die; ancient Chinese philosophers regarded black matter as the origin of everything.
According to Taoist tradition, the void and the uncreated are described as the very foundations of our reality. If this is the case, black holes could be regarded as the existential pillars of God or a gateway to some sort of spiritual kingdom. In either case, it is a very interesting subject to think about how do black holes affect our existence; or even how they make everything fit all together.
Could it be possible that, as some Eastern wise men thought, we are all made of void essence? After all, it is known that tiny black holes are also produced at a subatomic level. This mere idea could be enough to chill the faint of heart, and enhance the pessimistic idea of a life based upon nothingness.
3 A Titanic Destruction Power
Black holes are known for suddenly displaying gamma ray explosions capable of destroying not only planets but even suns. Some reports have been made about supernovas being produced as a direct consequence of this gamma ray.
Still, we have no idea on where this display of brutal power comes from, or why it happens in the first place. What is more, we cannot be sure that one of these won’t reach us and completely change our state of existence as we know it. We often think about our lives as being reduced to planet Earth, but we rarely stop to think for a second on what could be out there, stalking us with unsettling danger, waiting to take us into the realms of the unknown.
Remember that an ageless entity is just at the turn of the corner and that you are nothing but a prey that so far has been lucky. If the prey will someday venture into the fangs of the beast, is a question that only time and extremely ambitious science will tell.
2 White Holes: Are They Real?
According to the relativity theory of Einstein, white holes are a theoretical region of the universe into which nothing can access, but only be ejected. In other words, they could be regarded as anti-black holes. Still, the understanding we have about them has remained in the field of speculation.
In the year 2006, a gamma ray explosion occurred, and it should have been created through a supernova. However, no such thing was found. In other words, this explosion occurred out of nowhere, just like any paranormal event would.
Some people regard this event as a white hole letting matter escape, and later on disappearing due to its own gravitational force. The necessity of a white hole is due to the idea that if there is something to absorb, there should also be something that repels: a model similar to an entrance and an exit.
1 What Is Inside A Black Hole?
Devoured supernovas mixing with each other, the energy of dozens of planets getting merged into some gigantic melting pot: in other words, instability taken to a whole new level. Cases of black holes emitting radiation have also been reported.
Indeed, black holes can be as radioactive as Chernobyl. This idea was first suggested by Hawking’s, which is the reason why it is called “Hawking’s radiation.” However, what is the nature of the radiation emitted by black holes? Unfortunately, scientists have not been able to find an answer to this yet.
It is still impossible for modern science to create a probe strong enough to capture the radiation emitted by a black hole, or even to get close enough to it, and take a sample. What we know, however, is that it emits something. Hence, it has a complex internal nature, probably belonging to an alternative reality or dimension.
What we do know is that black holes are said to be made of a density so extreme that not even light can escape them. Besides that, any intent to explore the depths of a black hole has remained like that: intent. Maybe one day we will be able to venture into the dark depths of such a magnificent cosmic abyss.
