    The world is a hologram, or the matrix is real is such egoistic thinking.This is the whole '''we are the center of the unverse'' all over again.Assuming that a higher form of humanity created humaity is a paradox on itself. (unless it's aliens, which is just ridiculous)We invented computers, and now that's suddenly how the universe works... give me a break.I get it, computers and technology are a natural progression for humanity.It feels so easy to create bigger and better computers that completely immerse the user in it's digital world.But to think the universe is a hologram, complete BS

    moral of the story: never push an extra sock into a stacked up laundry...you may end up creating a black hole

    I had this clock spring idea about the universe. Big bang being one end of the spring swing. At the tightest coil. Then explodes out... Expanding. But matter is drawn to matter.Black holes over time collect everything then collect each other... Back into one supermass again. Then igniting another big bang.Just a loose thought in my head but I lack the knowledge and mental strength to pursue it.

    Que pasa si en realidad si los hollos negros concentran todo el universo en un solo punto hasta que es demasiada información en un solo punto y explota siendo así el blog bang, este proceso se repite y repite

    According to the theory of quantum mechanics information is indestructible. It might change shape, but it can never be lost: for example if you murdered a person with fire, you would get a corpse. That corpse will never become the living person again. But, if you were able to carefully collect every single atom of the corpse, and measured the exact properties of the smoke and heat radiating from the fire, you could, in theory reconstruct the person's body. 3:19Question: Is the rebuilt person live or dead?
