13. A conjecture on the function of black holes – 2022

Further to papers I have recently completed on the subject of dark matter being based on a gravitational effect rather than particles, I have applied parts of the rationale involved in the latter to form an informal conjecture about the possible function of black holes. In my paper on dark matter, I show that my conclusions here indicate that the structure and the composition of the universe play a major part in my description of how dark matter is a gravitational effect. The latter is based on the shape of the universe being an expanding sphere with its singular periphery expanding out at light speed. This in turn is responsible for the rate and manner which EM radiates out from any interior source of oscillating charged particles, duplicating the expanding action of this singular rim’s motion.

In that paper I mentioned that the expansion of the universe was also inextricably intertwined with the operation of mind and memory, albeit I mentioned this in passing without any further qualification, it being a separate and complex subject, on which there are a number of my other papers. However, I did mention briefly Feynman and Wheeler’s Absorber theory seemed to match my thesis for the shape of the universe in number of ways. In the latter respect there is one further possible application that has recently occurred to me on the way in which the scenario above might be relevant to the one other major unknown that has become apparent in recent decades. The existence of black holes has now been established, but their nature and purpose has been a source of continuing debate and bafflement to cosmologists and astrophysicists. 

On the assumption that the rate of expansion of the universe is directly connected to and proportional with the passage of time, the following has recently occurred to me. Matter in its most basic and stable form exists, and can certainly be converted to its more stable from of radiation energy, according to the insight of Einstein’s general theory of relativity. If, for whatever reason, the universe was tending to expand too rapidly, perhaps due to an excess of matter, for example, being converted to radiation energy, so that time was passing too rapidly, then black holes could be explained as a sort of storage device, in the same manner as capacitors in electrical circuitry are used to store charge. This absorption effect of energy and possibly information in the form of black holes, might be shown to correspondingly slow down the expansion rate of the universe and with it, slow down the passage of time (or possibly vice versa).

Quite why it might be necessary to slow down time, I can only suggest that this might have something to do with the connection of the development rate of the understanding of the universe by resulting intelligent systems, such as the human mind or other sensate species developing consciousness. In the scenario proposed by Duplication theory, there is a direct link with understanding and the passage of time, which in turn depends on the expansion rate of the universe, as mentioned in the paper on dark matter. This almost requires no explanation in terms of scientific theory since from experience it can be seen that our understanding of nature and the universe is increasing as time passes.

It also occurs to me that such advances should not be allowed to accelerate at too much of a rapid rate. This would be so that a regular hierarchy of growth rate of intelligence is maintained, rather than break out in uncontrolled spasms, out of kilter with other areas of increasing knowledge. This would be similar to the way in which cancerous growth in living cells can destroy the balance for systematic development of the overall body.

Such a possibility is obviously a large conjecture, and seemingly with little at first sight to do with the development of intelligence and understanding. However, there is a link here with consciousness via the Absorber theory. The latter was formed initially to also deal with the asymmetry of EM radiation being only retarded or outwards in transmission, by showing how this might be resolved by tinkering with notions of the passage of time and its reversal, together with the requirement for EM radiation to be a non-local resonance effect.

This is in line with the operation of duplication theory which shows that long term memory is an external process which does not rely on internal storage of information, but rather is enabled via a process of correlation of information over time and space via quantum entanglement. I have one paper titled Consciousness (2021) which explains how the combination of memory and intuitive ability, both depending on similar processes involving Quantum entanglement, forms a substantial part of the composition and activity of consciousness. This depends on there being is a crucial connection between the operation of thought and understanding with the formation and shape of the universe.

Thus, if we are able to learn more about the composition and structure of the universe, which is one of the principal tasks for which the Webb telescope has been intended, then our understanding of the operation of mind and memory might more easily fall into place.
