Is the white fountain everywhere?
A black hole swallows everything and concentrates it in a point, as
"viewed" from the outside. A white hole, or white fountain, is a
theoretical object that would be the opposite of a black hole. It
continuously spews out energy and matter, supposedly a flux of light
One idea is that every black hole would be connected to a white hole.
The matter/energy falling into the black hole would be spewed out by a
white hole somewhere else, possibly rejuvenated to the state of primal
matter as produced by the Big Bang: hydrogen and helium. But, no white
hole has been observed till now. Another idea proposes that black holes
in our universe would be white holes in another universe or that each
of those white holes would be a universe of its own. In such case, the
Big Bang that created our universe may be a white hole linked to a
black hole inside our meta-universe.
I thought about something: a white hole is meant to be the opposite of
a black hole. Hence, it may be not localized. What if black holes do
indeed spew out matter but they do so everywhere? This means that
particles would constantly appear at random positions in the universe,
with a random velocity and direction. In such case, those particles may
be a part of the cosmic rays. Some facts can maybe be explained by this:
- The utterly high energy of some cosmic rays.
- The fact that the proportion of hydrogen and helium is the same
in cosmic rays as the proportion produced by the Big Bang.
- The fact that some cosmic rays should have encountered an
obstacle before reaching Earth, if they travel long distances. If on
the contrary they are generated at random, then some do appear closer
At the scale of quantum phenomenons, particles can disappear at one
place and re-appear somewhere else. They can travel back and forth in
time and travel faster than the speed of light... But the end results
in our palpable realm will show no such behaviors. Maybe black holes
can cause those quantum phenomenons to happen at a cosmic scale.
The cosmic rays produced by the Sun are supposed to be accelerated by
the strong magnetic fields in the Sun's outer atmosphere. What if
particles from the white fountain have a tendency to appear around
heavy masses? (The likely explanation is depiected here: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/sdo/news/news20110106-spicules.html
My friend Philippe Thoma asked a good question: "what about black
fountains and white holes?" When a black hole connects to a random
location in space and time in the universe, can it also swallow a
particle that would be present there?
