“What Is A Black Hole? How Can We Understand It?” (Quora)

Dr. Michael LaitmanMichael Laitman, On Quora: What is a black hole? How can we understand it?

What we know about black holes is that inside them, time stops, laws of physics do not apply, and their gravitational field consumes everything, including light.

In our world, we live within three dimensions: time, space and motion. Each of these dimensions conditions the other.

The human mind can comprehend nothing beyond these dimensions. We can make measurements, receive results, and even build models, but in our current limited perception of reality, we are unable to piece together the whole picture.


According to the law of equivalence of form, it is in order to understand that reaching a different nature requires attaining its qualities.

This is where the wisdom of Kabbalah can help us. Kabbalah gives us an opportunity to expand the boundary of our perception and receive an additional sense with which we can penetrate the unknown. We will then be able to perceive exactly what is inside a black hole, and how we observe from that point.

We live below the speed of light. If we take the universe into consideration, we seem to be very primitive, as being under something means being completely ruled by it, controlled by this light that we exist within, and unable to realize an independent sensation of ourselves within this reality.

However, by becoming closer to the qualities of the light and rising above our nature, we will then gain complete knowledge and sensation of our universe, including what we now perceive as the secrets of the black holes.
