Liza O’Connor Discusses the Potentials of Black Holes

GOP Banner

The Black Hole…what is its real purpose?

Is it a giant mulcher that breaks down large objects into base elements and spews them out the other side as dark matter?

Or is it a portal to other multiverses?

Or is it a combination of both?

In my novel, The Gods of Probabilities, the highly advanced, long lived sentient beings who travel from one universe to another in great frequency use these prolific holes to go from one universe to another.  And there are lots and lots of holes.

Black holes are ubiquitous everywhere in the universe.  Below are just the ones our telescopes can see so far in one small area of space.

Many black holes

But even in my story that doesn’t mean just anything can wander into a black hole and magically appear in another universe.

A black hole

No, you need a key, or in this case, the built in capability of their ship to open the path to the other universe and shut down its destructive forces for the short time it takes to cross into the other universe.

However, if you happen to be a dead star  being pulled by its normal mulching state, it will suck you in and break you down to your smallest elements, then spit you out the other side in the form of small visible gases and a great deal of dark matter that we can’t see.

Current theory says there is 24% dark matter to 4% visible matter. This means, if we could see dark matter, space would look very different. Dark matter is most prevalent where galaxies forms. And current belief is that ALL galaxies have a supermassive black hole.

So which came first? The galaxies, the black hole, or the dark matter?

We aren’t sure. It’s a chicken and egg and chicken poop scenario.  And we are hampered by the fact we still don’t know what dark matter is comprised of.

Also we see three dimensionally, while quantum physics supports ten to twenty-six dimensions, depending on the various theories out there.  So our inability to ‘see’ dark matter may not be such a mystery at all. We are only seeing a small portion of reality.

You might also wonder why I have my ships crossing the multiverse via black holes instead of wormholes. Simple, black holes exist. While Wormholes are mathematically possible if the General Relatively theory is correct, no one has ever found any proof of a wormhole existing.  It has also been suggested by scientists that a wormhole might be two entangled black holes.

Thus my Gods wished to travel through something that most scientist agree exists, but that we have yet to settle on how it works. (That provides me space for creative tinkering) We’ve got lots of theories, and more keep showing up. Does the black hole have an event barrier or is it a firewall or is it a portal to a new universe?  Does it destroy, crush, or change matter? Does it have another function that we don’t know about? A function that has existed since the big bang. Did a black hole begin the big bang and provide the needed gravity to create the galaxies?

We simply don’t know.  Space is full of theories, but little certainty. The perfect location for an author to weave her tales.

The Gods of Probabilities


Liza O’Connor


The Gods require a time shifter to ensure the Path of Light reigns during the final collapse of possibilities. To speed the process of finding an Oceanic with the specific talents needed, God DNA is induced in several batches of Oceanic eggs, resulting in a generation of brilliant tiny blue Oceanic children.

One charming boy named Drogan has the ability to manipulate quantum reality in ways that will strengthen the Path of Light. Only trouble is that his gift runs a high probability of killing him and wiping out the Path of Light for good.

While the bureaucratic Gods will try to assist, in Quantum all possibilities not only can, but do happen, so the future is never certain.

    Loved this post, Liza! Don’t you just want to sit down for a long chat with Stephen Hawking? The series sounds great. Best wishes.

    Reblogged this on Marcha's Two-Cents Worth and commented:
    Sounds like my kind of science fiction, i.e. based on actual science. Can’t wait to read it!

  3. Marcha's Two-Cents Worth says :

    Sounds like my kind of sci-fi! Looking forward to reading it.

      Thanks. While I do have a wild imagination, I do like to stay in the realm of possibility. Quantum Physics is a great sandbox to play it, because it’s utterly mind blowing.
