Infinite Time and Space Within a Finite Universe

By: Daniel Nase

There is a big debate in the scientific community about the nature of the universe. Is it infinite or finite? The side that says the universe is finite believes it's only as big as the speed of light multiplied by the amount of time since the Big Bang from the origin, which suggests that it's a perfect sphere. The other side says that the universe extends forever in every direction.

If we look out into the universe and think of Einstein's theories, we see black holes sucking things in and bending space and time until it's vertical at their singularities. The point where it's verticle also extends downward infinitely. Smashing them horizontally would show us that the amount of time and space they contain is infinite because it's bent vertically.

We also see black holes sucking up other black holes, and theoretically smaller black holes can exist within larger ones as long as the relative event horizons are the same limits. Nothing will ever actually reach the center of any singularity because of time dilation, and each black hole contains infinite time and space.

Essentually black holes are a little bit like onions with infinite layers that represent bands of bent time and space. Each layer is isolated from the others; they're kind of like independent universes even though they exist inside something bigger. People inside would not be aware of this because they are not able to see anything on the outside or the inside; they can only see their layer.

We already know from Einstein's work that time decreases as you get closer to a massive object or the speed of light, length decreases and energy and mass increase. This means that you might not even know that you are inside one of the layers of a black hole, and making a black hole is kind of like making a new universe relative to the things inside it. In addition, the relative energy and mass of objects increase as they fall into a black hole. So we would be creating infinite energy and mass from a relative point of view.

Therefore, the finite universe is the limit of what we can see in our band or layer in the black hole. The infinite universe is what we know that exists beyond what we can see from the inside-out by looking at smaller universes from the outside-in.

Another interesting idea is to put two black holes side-by-side to make the net gravitation field between them weaker. This could allow us to extract things that fell inside the event horizon and potentially sap the energy / mass out of a black hole and eliminate it.
