10 Eerie Theories On What Happens Inside A Black Hole

It’s well-known that a black hole absorbs everything that enters its event horizon, to the extent that even light cannot escape it. Less well-known is where those doomed particles end up. One theory is that whatever ends up inside of a black hole comes out at its other end, which is a white hole.

Of course, no one has ever seen a white hole before, so no one actually knows if it’s actually white or not. But the reason behind why it is named so is because a white hole represents the complete opposite of what a black hole is. Instead of absorbing everything that enters it, it spits out everything that is inside of it. And just like how you cannot escape a black hole, the opposite is true in a white hole, as you wouldn’t be able to enter one.

The white hole, in short, spits out whatever the black hole has swallowed into an alternate universe. This theory has made physicists consider white holes as the basis of the creation of our universe as we know it. If you manage to survive falling into a black hole and somehow travel out of its white hole, you are most likely never going to be able to access this universe ever again.

Watch The History Of The Universe Play Itself Out

As we’ve mentioned previously, it’s possible to encounter a black hole with no singularity. Such a black hole would have a wormhole in its place instead. If we manage to actually travel through the wormhole, we would witness the history of the universe play itself out in front of our eyes in the process of transiting to whatever is at the end of the wormhole. It would be as if someone played a video tape of the universe’s history on infinite fast-forward.

However, this story has a bad ending, as the faster the speed of the picture gets, the closer you are to dying. The light will become more and more blueshifted and energetic until it instantly fries you alive with radiation.

Travel To A Parallel Universe

If you somehow manage to get yourself stuck in a black hole, whether by choice or not, just look around you; there might be a way out. Even though it would be impossible to return to the universe you once loved and cherished, you would still be safe (or at least safer) in a new, parallel universe.

Physicists have theorized that once you reach a black hole’s singularity, it could act as a bridge to an alternate reality, or a so-called “parallel universe.” What this new universe possess is really up to the imagination. Some theories even say that an infinite amount of alternate different yous lie in an equally infinite amount of alternate universes.

So, have you ever wondered what could have been—what could have happened if you went after that dream of yours instead of settling, what could have been if you were richer or poorer, or if you chased after that cute girl/guy? Well, you might actually find out (if you jump into a black hole).

You Become Part Of The Universe

Hawking theorized that certain particles that enter a black hole are filtered out into positive and negative particles. These particles are slowly absorbed by the black hole. As the negative particles fall in they decrease its mass. Positive particles have just enough energy to remain outside of the black hole as radiation.

As the black hole slowly but surely starts to lose mass and gets hotter and hotter, it explodes its contents, referred to as Hawking radiation, back to the universe. This, in concept, means that you might become a part of the universe, like a phoenix rising from atomic ashes.

You’ll Just . . . Die

Sometimes, we like to ignore obvious and grim reality while being blinded by the opportunity to yearn for something greater.

As sadistic as it sounds, the most likely outcome of falling into a black hole is that before you could even acknowledge your presence within it, you’d be torn to smithereens. You wouldn’t even understand that you were witnessing what physicists claim as the key to understanding the universe’s eerie mysteries.
