Survival and even “immortality” is what happens when they fall into this particular type of black hole.

A new study has questioned physicists’ understanding of cosmic black holes.

A cosmic black hole can be understood as a region of space-time with enormous gravity, sufficient to distort light. In other words, any object in the world – including living things – if it fell here would be squeezed, torn apart, would cease to exist for good.

At least, that’s what most of the world’s physicists agree with. But according to a recent study, there are several types of cosmic black holes that can still help you survive. Only thing, you will fall into a very bizarre reality.

These black holes do not kill you, but will “destroy” the supposed “past” by sending you into what is called “the parallel universe”. Your life now has so many variables, and therefore the future is uncertain.

In our world today, the past will determine the future. This means that every action we take will lead to one and only one future. But according to experts from the University of California at Berkeley (USA), this type of black hole will push us into another universe where the laws of physics no longer apply. With it, we can even become “immortal”.

Specifically, Peter Hintz – author of the study – analyzed data on the interaction of electric charge with a kind of cosmic black hole, called “Reissner-Nordström-de Sitter”. It’s a strange kind of black hole that can’t be determined by science. Just know that if someone falls into this kind of black hole, they can survive.

However, the journey is like going through a tunnel, taking them into a very uncertain and unpredictable world at the other end. It could be a new universe, where the so-called “causality” in physics no longer exists. And furthermore, a past action can lead to the coexistence of many futures at the same time.

In fact, this is the phenomenon described in Albert Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity – the theory that for decades served as the basis for explaining gravity.

“Usually, laws with given conditions can be used to identify problems that will arise in any physical system.” – quoted Robert Mann, professor of physics and mathematics at the University of Waterloo, Canada.

“But nothing is mentioned in Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity.”

“Even knowing the full energy and distribution of matter throughout the universe, the equation of general relativity cannot predict the total future of space-time.”

Professor Hintz is known to have studied a kind of non-rotating black hole, including the so-called “Cauchy horizon” (Cauchy is the point where all fate will be shattered, with no foreseeable future). For Cauchy, no one could observe it, because the light passing through it would be completely destroyed. The weather here will also be slower due to the extremely strong gravity.

But with the Reissner-Nordström-de Sitter black hole, Professor Hintz argues that this is the exception, by mathematical calculations, not by physics.

“No physicist can fit into a black hole. This is the category of mathematics.”

“But in this regard, Einstein’s equations are more interesting than ever. For behind Cauchy’s line, nothing is determined.”

According to Professor Hintz, the reason his research can be done is that the universe is expanding at an increasing rate. As space-time is continuously stretched, the part of the universe beyond the black hole is not affected.

In some cases – such as the Reissner-Nordström-de Sitter black hole, stretched spacetime also negates the possibility of time dilation in the black hole, allowing humans to pass without affecting. It’s just that the destination is a very uncertain universe.
