Indiana University Monday:
IU theoretical physicist Nikodem Poplawski in research published in “Physics Letters B” uses Euclidean-based mathematical modeling to suggest that all black holes may have wormholes inside which exist universes created at the same time as the black holes.
And Nikodem Poplawski’s mathematical model drives us to this question:
Could our universe be located within the interior of a wormhole which itself is part of a black hole that lies within a much larger universe?
What could this possibly mean? When a physicist discovers that the universe is consistent with such an idea—or one equivalently bizarre—is it a triumph for rationality, or a disaster?
We don’t know where we’re at or what we are, do we?
