The singularity is all around you, in every direction you look.

And it is getting closer.


As awesome as that is, it can never be done because as you approach the black hole you would get shredded by tidal forces, and then once you cross the event horizon you become a part of the singularity, at which state matter and energy violate the laws of thermodynamics. Even hypercondensates follow the laws of thermodynamics, as weird as they are..

A few days ago a story broke regarding a physics lab that used lasers to reach temperatures of negative Kelvins, which kind of like having your evil twin from Bizarro show up sporting an evil mustache. So freaking weird! Anyway, hopefully it will help explain what the hell dark matter really is, and the one question I want to ask should I ever meet God (Flying Spaghetti Monster, whatever) will become moot.

This topic is pretty confusing when you over think this out.

Thank you!!! I will need those neurodegenerative disease fighting drugs when I'm older do to too much "college". As for the mood disorders I'm already screwed.

You are welcome! Major depressive disorder is correlated with neurodegeneration, and antidepressants stimulate re-growth, so it's not surprising that neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and other kinds of dementia are often comorbid with depression. Not that this has anything to do with black holes, I just like talking about it.
Anyway, I am working on discovery of new drugs that bypass the serotoninergic pathways and hopefully result in fast-acting antidepressants/anxiolytics that don't screw up your libido or make you a shitty driver.


I don't have depression, but I do think my serotonin and dopamine receptors are a little wonked out on account of all the mid 90's raving I did....

You've failed to either answer the question or actually provide a source yet again.

If you still can't even understand that a singularity is defined as a single point taking up no space at all, I'm going to assume you're a troll, because it would be too depressing to think that you're actually that stupid. I'm done, either way, since you've proven yourself incapable of rational discussion.

If you get into one you would be compressed into nothing. It is just too much to understand. I remember I was studying this at school.

No. He has probably done a course in general relativity and cosmology. Tensors are the maths that you learn when you do general relativity.

As for light cones, you come across them when you study the evolution of the universe, which falls mostly under cosmology. So he is very far from a rocket scientist, who don't have much of anything to do with this subject matter lol.

Anyway, I am not a specialist in this topic since my specialization is more towards spectroscopy of stars. I did take a course this year (3rd year in university) in cosmology and you really do need to do GR to be able to fully understand how black holes and in general spacetime works. Add to that some knowledge of special relativity, which leads to even more maths in matrix mechanics, etc.

So yeah. Fortunately or unfortunately for the OP, your question to be answered in its entirety requires some pretty high level mathematics. But if you are interested, I would definitely recommend you take up the subject in whatever level you are at right now and develop yourself.

Just admit you failed, bro.

You want me to provide a source? I did, I said Cambridge University. We were talking about the meaning(s) of size, yes? That was the latest attack of yours.

That's the source, if you can't google Cambridge University dictionary, then I feel bad for you son. Also, try dictionary.reference.com it's also a great site for learnin werds n stuff for you intellectually challenged. I won't link it for ya, because you seem to need the practice of using the internets.

As for my explanation of a black hole, you found a link for me from NASA that explained exactly what I said.

Fail fail fail fail FAIL


Give it up already, your troll fails.

Yeah people, just continue ignoring the theoretical physicist who explained precisely what a black hole is....

Almost like the title makes you fucking god.
