2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Every Black Hole Contains a New Universe
« on: December 11, 2013, 07:18:16 pm »
Our universe may exist inside a black hole. This may sound strange, but it could actually be the best explanation of how the universe began, and what we observe today. It's a theory that has been explored over the past few decades by a small group of physicists

Who haven't actually been able to come up with any way of testing the theory. Also the article implies that the theory gives a clearer origin of the universe than the standard model. However, it does not really include an origin just an infinite (?) series of other universes with black holes.

Which actually makes a certain amount of sense.
According to Relativity, the greater the mass, the greater the curvature of space-time. Therefore, there should come a time when the curvature becomes infinite, creating a new closed system

Some of the combinations of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics rule out singularities of that type.

Infinite spacial curvature would require a singularity, wouldn't it?
Hmmm ......

Some attempts to combine relativity and quamtum mechanics do not have such infinities -- and therefore no (true) singularities.
