Apparently, black holes could give you infinite futures and erase your past. A mathematician at UC Berkeley named Peter Hintz theorizes it’s possible to go through certain types of black holes and survive — but by doing so, your past would be stripped from you and your future would have infinite possibilities.
“This is a question one can…only study mathematically, but it has physical, almost philosophical implications, which makes it very cool.” Hintz explained.
The concept can be explained with something called “strong cosmic censorship,” which gave physicists peace of mind that the laws of the universe would never allow more than one future to exist. Smaller black holes would “spaghettify” anything that reaches their outer event horizon so a person would be stretched into a string of atoms.
Large black holes don’t have the same effect and would not obliterate and object before it hits the inner Cauchy horizon, at which point the past no longer determines the future. These mathematics are proposing; what if, in an expanding universe like ours, you could pass through the event horizon and the Cauchy horizon unharmed? Your past would no longer exist, and therefore your future would have infinite possibilities. It may not make too much sense, but the idea of surviving something as destructive as a black hole sounds nice.
