    Has anybody ever investigated to see if there is a reciprocal of a black hole? If so what is it?

    If energy cannot be created or destroyed, what was the energy that must have been put in to cause the big bang doing b4 the event?

    Contracting from the most recent Big Crunch?

    I like that! Could there have been one or more simultaneous crunches? Really, it's getting late here in England - or should I say early?

    There is, but I'm too nice of a girl to say.

    Would you consider extrapolating on the energy issues of the big bang then?

    I don't know many of the details but I know that it was caused by a scorned woman. This I know.

    Of course. The theoretical white hole, or anti-gravity. Also negative-energy is involved in that somewhat. Get enough negative energy for enough time, and rip a hole in spacetime. Make a wormhole.

    So mokko, would you care to comment as to if there is an equilibrium between a white hole and a black hole?

    Of course there is it's called grey matter.

    If time itself was born from the Big Bang, there's a problem with asking what happened "before" the event.

    According to mr. short history of time, steven Hawking, small black
    holes lose their energy and evaporate, Plus some theories put
    the whole universe as the inverse of black holeness, a black
    hole turned inside out. Its all those extra theoretical dimensions that
    does it.

    I like the "Japanese Hand Fan" illustration.
    Flip open one of these and you get a triangle shaped object but with one side (the side you use to fan your face) curved. Opposite the curved side you have a hinge.
    We see things on the curved side. There looks to be space between points, and photons seem to take time to traverse the distance between points.
    The real photon lives at the hinge and doesn't go anywhere at all, what we see is just a projection of the photon turning. There's only one photon here.
    The curved side of the Japanese fan represents what we see as spacetime, which unfolded at the Big Bang and the hinge (and the radial section, it's just a model) represent the other dimensions which have remained "curled up small" according to Superstring Theory.
    I like this model, for one reason it accords a reason for a "thought experiment" postulated by Einstein (and since experimentally confirmed) that from the point of view of a photon, it would take zero time to move from one end of the universe to the other. That's because the photon doesn't actually go anywhere, in this model, it just turns. What we see is a shadow racing by at a high speed, a shadow of the underlying reality.
    Of course, all this is just brouhaha, the really big question is why is there anything at all?
