Stephen Hawking strongly believes that black holes are not necessarily the end of something, but rather than the beginning of everything else. The mysterious cosmic structures may not be the dead ends, the no exit ever spaces that scientists believed they are. Stephen Hawking has just released a new theory about black holes and he strongly affirms that unfortunate space travelers could escape from black holes after all, but they will probably find themselves in another universe, another dimension, without a chance to go back home. Well, this is quite a progressive point of view, if we consider that we should first of all consider ourselves as “home”.
Stephen Hawking said he has discovered a mechanism “by which information is returned out of the black hole”, namely a place where gravity compresses matter to a point where the known laws of physics break down.
Information concerning the physical state of something which disappears into a black hole was believed to completely vanish but according to the general laws of the universe, this should be practically impossible. Even that information which is swollen by a black hole must end up somewhere.
According to the latest Stephen Hawking theory, information is either translated into a kind of “hologram” on the edge of the black hole or it breaks out into an alternative universe. Black holes are large structures and if they are rotating, they might have a passage to another universe. But the thing is that once you cross that border, you can never come back.
The message of this lecture is that “black holes ain’t as black as they are painted. They are not the eternal prisons they were once thought. Things can get out of a black hole both on the outside and possibly come out in another universe,” the physicist declared.
Black holes have always fascinated us to the point of fear. They are these infinitely rotating structures that hide greatest secrets and no one by now has succeeded in defining their purpose or their exact role and action in the universe.
A very old theory states that nothing is ever lost, everything is transformed and if we relate that to what Stephen Hawking has recently declared, it could mean that black holes are not the end of information at all, but the beginning of a completely new something, something that is still unknown to us but definitely well imagined.
