Ex-News JunkieBlack hole model of the universeTue Aug 1, 2017 7:48pm2001:1970:5c22:6100:150f:6e18:46fa:a62aSo I fall back my preferred model that the entire universe is a black hole:

... that the event horizon of a black hole with a mass equal to all the matter in the visible universe... is much larger than the visible universe... therefore the entire universe is inside a black hole. Pretty simple.

... furthermore, matter inside this black hole forms clumps and voids and additional black holes, hence the formation of galaxies.

... furthermore, matter inside galactic black holes forms clumps and voids and additional black holes, but these are so small that they evaporate instantly preventing the formation of a singularity.

... we live in the habitable space between.

One problem: The Cosmic Microwave Background seems to be nearly uniform everywhere suggesting that theentireuniverse, not just a small region of it, was inside a very small hot high-density black holeat the same time. This doesn't make sense because a black hole that massive should have a low density, as low as the universe as we observe it now! This seems to be a contradiction that invalidates the model, either partially or entirely. There might have to be an alternative explanation for the implied hot, dense, state of the universe 14 billion years ago.

E.g.

A sudden application or injection of energy into one location resulting in a particle shower on the order of 3.28 x 10^80 particles and an associated inflation of space-time to fill the resulting event horizon. This could have been a collision or a disintegration similar to radioactive decay. But characterizing of "what" or from "where" would require considerable imagination, and far more skill to validate scientifically.

E.g.

If the "source" of our observable universe (which obeys mathematical relationships) exists independently from space-time then one could refer to it as an unobservable and lateral extant "state" with mathematical qualities, not unlike how imaginary numbers exist laterally from what is directly observable. This would also imply that lateral states have energy of some sort, a lot of it, and a potential mechanism to release that energy.
