What Happens Inside A Black Hole?

No one has ever seen what the center of a black
hole looks like. This is because black holes are
nothing more than extremely small and incredibly
dense points of matter. Because so much matter
has been packed into such a small space, the
gravity inside a black hole is tremendous. So
tremendous, in fact, that not even light can
escape.
Since light cannot escape from the gravity of a
black hole, no light comes from them to human
eyes. This means they cannot be seen. A Black
Hole can only be observed when something
nearby is effected by its gravity. They can also be
detected because of other forms of energy they
radiate, such as X-radiation.
Physicists have theorized what might take place
inside a black hole. It is known what occurs to
matter as it approaches the black hole, because
until it reaches a certain point light is still able to
escape and the objects can still be viewed. Once
they reach what is known as the Event Horizon,
they cease to be visible and ‘disappear’ into the
black hole.
Relativity theory states that at the center of the
black hole, density becomes infinite, and because
of that all things travel towards the center. This
means that anything with mass will fall towards
the center at the fastest speed possible; the
speed of light. Because speed and time are
relative to the observer, from our point of view
here on Earth things simply disappear into the
hole. However, if a person were to pass the Event
Horizon, time would stop for that person. As the
person fell toward the center of the black hole at
the speed of light, his or her perception of the
passage of time would stop, because everything
would be moving at the speed of light in the
same direction. We only notice the passage of
time because of the way things move in space; if
everything were moving in the same direction at
the speed of light, we could not see anything
move and hence, we would not perceive the
passage of time. Everything would seem to stand
still.
Physicists believe that anything which falls into a
black hole is simply compressed to a tiny,
invisible point with infinite density, which is
referred to as a ‘singularity’.
Whether or not a person would survive falling into
a black hole is a matter of some contention.
Some would argue that being compressed into a
singularity would undoubtedly result in death;
others say that since time stops when you pass
the Event Horizon, that person would live forever.
Some astrophysicists even believe that the matter
which falls into a black hole is discharged in
another location; another galaxy, or even a
parallel universe. However, though these theories
make for interesting movies and science fiction
novels, they are not widely believed by scientists.

Dumbest Laws from Around the World.

1. Kissing in Dubai.
States across the US have been known to have
some pretty stupid laws on the books, but
America isn’t the only one! Countries around the
world have their fair share of dumb laws, too!
Though Dubai has become a very modern city and
a hot tourist spot to visit, it still has some pretty
restrictive laws on the books. While it is okay to
wear a bikini on the beach now, be careful with
your public displays of affection. Kissing in public
in this city can land you up to a year in jail ! Even
holding hands isn’t tolerated. You can also get
arrested for swearing. And if you are traveling as
an unmarried couple, you’d better book two
rooms because staying in a hotel room with
someone you aren’t married to is also illegal.

Full text of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s last address to the nation.

My Fellow Citizens,
I address you today for the last time as Prime
Minister of India. Ten years ago, when I was
entrusted with this responsibility, I entered upon it
with diligence as my tool, truth as my beacon and
a prayer that I might always do the right thing.
Today, as I prepare to lay down office, I am
aware that well before the final judgment that we
all await from the Almighty, there is judgment in
the court of public opinion that all elected
officials and governments are required to submit
themselves to.

The Road not Taken – Robert Frost – YOUR FAVOURITE POEM

poetreecreations.wordpress.com

FROSTIE

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
By Robert  Frost 1874–1963

THE FINAL GOODBYE: – Promote Yourself

fog

Life’s journey was passing
There was little worth remarking
Then with certain misgivings
I recalled your leaving

Through a thick fog and mist
Surreal images appear best
The dreamy night was starlit
Our Goodbye was the hardest

Could never get over your going
Years went by, passing
In life, things keep on changing
But your memory is always lingering. ….

who is the I ?

“The past is imagined – but somewhat real –
yes ? It happened – but ofcourse now exists in
thought only – although physical ramifications of
past actions are real – yes ? therefore from that
point of view there is a reality ?”
But let us go slowly. It happened — so it seems.
It surely makes our life simpler to think so and
not to doubt that. But how do we know it really
happened? All the evidence is only PRESENT
evidence, PRESENT memories of past events. Let
us go one step further. What difference would it
make if the past was not real? Could we ever test
that hypothesis scientifically or otherwise; in what
way could we go about that?
And yes, we do normally live in the unquestioned
belief in linear time and its inescapable rule of
past events with its consequences governing
present happenings.

the concept of ‘me’

I agree that all sages have said that we have to
know who we are – and unless we break free
form the concept of the self and Maya – we are
never going to understand the unverse and our
relationship to it. And again the word ‘our’ comes
into it – what does that mean ? But how do I get
out of that gradually. Do I HAVE to come to that
knowledge first – or can I go the other way
Can I try and distance event from time – or can
my mind do that – without first answering the
question ‘My’ ? Can I try and distance space from
time ? –
Perhaps that is the way for me. Because I find it
really difficult to go the other way – except
theoretically – do I believe it ? Yes I do – that
there is another reality outside the concept of
‘me’ – but there again it is a thought that
emmates from my mind – the same vehicle from
which the other thoughts about cause and event
emmate from.
