A New Beginning, A New End

Black holeThe universe is a rather huge place, but not endless.
There are some theories on how it all started, how it came to be – the big bang theory being the widely accepted one. But what was before the big bang? Nobody really knows that.
Well, ladies and gentlemen – I have the answer!

But first, let’s take a look at black holes. Those are very interesting objects. Wikipedia says this about black holes: “A black hole is a geometrically defined region of spacetime exhibiting such strong gravitational effects that nothing, including particles and electromagnetic radiation such as light, can escape from inside it”.
Okay, that’s very interesting indeed.
So let’s imagine that the black holes continues to grow in both mass and numbers. This will continue until one day there’s no more matter in the universe, except the black holes themselves. The number of black holes will eventually decrease but the mass of each hole will increase. In the end, only one black hole will remain and that is the end of our universe. That is how our universe started – by the end of another universe. Our universe came from one single black hole which exploded and therefore created what we know today as the big bang.

So, my theory is as following: a universe ended as a super-massive black hole, with a mass equal to all the stars in the universe, exploded in an epic blast of energy, creating our universe with – a big bang.
Our universe will face the same fate in the distant future.
