Are "popcorn" black holes the answer to linear entropy and, maybe, M2C2?

Once upon a time, we lived in the "duh" world where nothing was known and everyone was dumb. This does not mean we were stupid, for you have to have knowledge which you ignore to be stupid. No, being dumb in the "duh" world meant we had no knowledge at all.

Then, one day, we entered the "magical" world where we began to think we understood the universe in which we lived. We did this through the creation of things like religion, blind faith, and magic. While the "magical" world was a major leap forward from the "duh" world, we did not stop there.

Now, we live in the "ah-hah" world where reason and logic have given us reliable insights into reality, without having to resort to lazy statements such as "...and then a miracle occurs." Though the "ah-hah" world is where most of us live today, it is surprising to see how many people still remain in the "magical" world, and if you're a Republican in the United States, the "duh" world.

As we are a species bound to our own evolution, so too has the "ah-hah" world evolved. One of the first major leaps in the "ah-hah" world happened with the advent of Newtonian physics. This in turn inspired other advancements such as The Laws of Thermodynamics (the LoT's), Quantum Mechanics, and String Theory. With each new chapter that we opened in the "ah-hah" world, we broadened and expanded the horizons of our reality-based knowledge.

Sadly, this knowledge base has left us with a dilemma: entropy. If the LoT's are correct as we believe them to be, then sooner or later everything will reach absolute zero and the universe as we know it will cease to exist: it will have ended, taking everything including time with it. Now that's a problem, because when you take into consideration the concept of the big-bang, you realize we're proposing a universe which came from nothing and then ends in nothing. If that's true, then what started it all with the big-bang in the first place? Didn't there have to be an initiating force before the big-bang that said something like "I'm bored, let's try this," or "I wonder if this is a good idea?" or "Abracadabra!" Though I'm sure I've thrown some of you back into the "duh" world by now (i.e. - "What the fuck is he babbling about?"), I beg those of you who are still hanging on, please don't fall back into the "magical" world at this point.

To solve this conundrum, rather than looking for what started it all by searching for something outside of our time and universe, what if the answer comes from something that actually exists within our time and universe: black holes.

Black holes are sort of like cosmic vacuum cleaners which go around sweeping up all the galactic debris, including dust, meteors, and probably even a few naughty stray planets every so often. Yet, rather than getting larger as they accumulate all this matter, they actually make everything they consume smaller by compressing out the "empty space."

You see, contrary to what our intuition tells us, most things, even things like solid rocks, are comprised mostly of empty space, as the neutron, proton and electron containing atoms from which they are made are also mostly just empty space (think of the neutrons, electrons and protons kind of like tennis balls which only take up a tiny portion of a tennis court). The black hole, through immense gravitational forces, sucks matter inside itself and then squeezes out all that empty space, somewhat like a juicer squeezing all the liquid out of an orange. In reality, there is so much empty space within the matter of our universe, that if you could fit it all inside a single black hole, it might end up only producing something the size of a golf ball.

But what if black holes, like a porn star, have a limit to their sucking and powers of attraction? Then at some point, like a binged-out teenage fashion model, they might purge all that digested/compressed matter back into outer space where it can once again expand into the mostly-empty atoms we all know and love today (by the way, if anyone has any recent citations on this idea, I'd love to see them).

This thought raises the possibility that black holes may be part of some, as of yet, not fulling understood cycle where matter goes back and forth, from a low entropic state compressed inside a black hole, to a high entropic expanded-universe state after having been released in a popcorn, big-bang-like moment. If so, time might then be infinite, as there'd be a reset button (popcorn black holes) which would periodically restart the entropic process.

Okay, there's a lot of conjecture here and, perhaps, some unintentional hyperbole, but it does give one pause to consider that, just as we once advanced from Newtonian physics to the LoT's, maybe we will come to understand that the entropic pathway is not linear as we believe it to be today, but is, instead, cyclical as in a universe which contains popcorn black holes.

Now if you've hung in this far, you might as well stick around for the final conclusion.

Just like non-linear entropy, the concept of M2C2 (man-made climate change) is a daunting task for many people to wrap their heads around. This is why such a large number of individuals today take the path of least resistance: denial. Just like it's easier to say, "No, non-linear entropy violates our current LoT's and, therefore, cannot be true," it's just as easy for members of society to look the other way when it comes to M2C2. After all, if they don't admit there's a problem, then they don't have to worry about finding a solution.

So, how does the question of non-linear entropy (i.e. - popcorn black holes) relate to M2C2? The answer is simple: the first step in finding any solution is to admit that there is a problem.

Baby steps anyone?

Climatology is a science in its infancy, yet to take its first baby steps.

Earthling - Agreed. We've only been tracking atmospheric CO2 since the 1950's. However, the coincidental rise of the computer age, especially the personal computer age, has allowed this infant to mature into early adulthood far faster than any new field of science before it. In other fields, it would have taken a century or more to amass the the scope and volume of data available to the study and analysis of M2C2 (man-mad climate change) which we already have today.

Our exploration of the universe is also proceeding at an astounding rate. Wouldn't it be fascinating if we were to one day find that black holes prove that the entropic pathway is not linear?

It saddens me to know that mankind has always wanted to run before he could crawl and that his thirst for knowledge of the universe is stronger than the interest in his own planet.

I admire your enthusiasm with regard to the computer age and climate science, so get back to me when the computer manages to work out the involvement of clouds in the process.

Earthing - It saddens me too. Yes, intelligent as we think we are, we are still rather stupid. We're no longer dumb (absent of knowledge) but we act contrary to the knowledge which we already have, which makes us stupid. I am, in that regards, always astounded when I see people smoking, or who are grossly overweight and eating junk food, or who drink to excess. Sadly, I've never met anyone who wasn't stupid over something or things throughout their life, including myself.

Oh well, guess we'll just have to do the best we can with how stupid we are!
