    Ok. But that means the potential energy that will become a new universe is stored somehow in a state called 'nothingness'? Sort of.

    But what is nothingness? It's not a void, or empty space, or a 'state of nothingness'. It's absolutely non-existent. It cannot be a storage place for dark matter.

    It cannot store energy, and it cannot emit energy -- because it just isn't there?

    I need to drop out of the Kalam discussion now. So please don't think I'm being rude if I dont respond to any more replies about it to my own posts.

    Maybe this Dark Energy which scientists say is causing the accelerated expansion of the universe is what brought forth the singularity ?

    How does one argue for Anthrpomorphism.

    If a frog or snail etc were to contemplate Godhead...they'd say Godhead is the supreme frog, snail etc. ---and thus the frog would be Anthrpomorphisming?

    What would the monster Frankenstein say about Anthrpomorphism?
    What would the Hal the Computer say about Anthrpomorphism? [But for AI remember the maxim: "stupid in-stupid out"]

    Sorry to hear Cino has left the forum.

    Just as there is duality, the universe displays its duality: Dot sized Shining Stars & Vast Black Spaces.

    Similarly, there is vast numbers of variegated forms & a Unique definitive absolute fountainhead.

    They don't "need" ---they are personifications.

    I don't understand what problem you have with my methaphor ---a singular metaphor that I provided a dozen examples to illustrate.

    Does the girlfriend need not think that the boyfriend need personification?

    "Hi Dad! Oh, who is the boy? Oh, you know, just call him Tom, or DIck, Or Harry or Johnson!"

    "Your Honor, I don't think that traffic ticket with my ID needs personification."

    Without a person present...there is no use for things.

    I am explaining that there is persona first then that persona extends His prowess into objects.

    IMO the whole idea of light years and "Photographs that are really supercomputer composites of ultraviolet rays" is 100% bogus ---we are in the Life-of-Brian era of Nerds steering the helm.

    Many think that the soul doesn't exist and at death the temporary soul disappears ---the soul must be disappearing into a common place.

    We now know where the plastic bags go after burial at sea.

    So where is the place where our Non-Soul goes ---that may or may not be full.

    Maybe the universe expands to make room to store all the dead souls?

    Every image you've ever seen of a black hole has been a simulation.

    This "Photo" is bogus. It is a computer painting.

    The parabolic reflector functions due to the geometric properties of the paraboloidal shape: any incoming ray that is parallel to the axis of the dish will be reflected to a central point, or "focus". (For a geometrical proof, click here.) Because many types of energy can be reflected in this way, parabolic reflectors can be used to collect and concentrate energy entering the reflector at a particular angle. Similarly, energy radiating from the focus to the dish can be transmitted outward in a beam that is parallel to the axis of the dish.

    BLACKHOLE LIVES MATTER

    The image emerged from two years of computer analysis of eight radio observatories on six mountains and four continents observed the galaxy in Virgo
    The telescope array also monitored a dim source of radio noise called Sagittarius A* (pronounced Sagittarius A-star), at the heart of our Milky Way galaxy. There, 26,000 light-years from Earth, and cloaked in interstellar dust and gas, lurks another black hole, with a mass of 4.1 million suns.

    Still, questions about gravity and the universe abound. “We know there must be something more,” Avery Broderick, a physicist at the University of Waterloo, in Ontario, told the audience in Washington, D.C. “Black holes are one of the places to look for answers.”

    Tiny details would be a challenge for even the biggest individual telescope.

    Moreover, the view is blurred by the charged particles such as electrons and protons that fill interstellar space. “It’s like looking through frosted glass,” said Dr. Doeleman To see into the shadows, astronomers needed to be able to tune their radio telescope to shorter wavelengths. And they needed a bigger telescope. For two years, the Event Horizon team reduced and collated the results. The data were too voluminous to transmit over the internet

    “There were clear signatures of a ringlike structure,” he said. After dinner, he went to his office and made some crude calculations. “That was one of those great moments,” he said. “It was a surprise how clear this image is.”

    It Took Half a Ton of Hard Drives to Store the Black Hole Image Data

    The newly released image of a black hole (below) is a watershed moment for physics. Finally, we can put some of Einstein’s most famous predictions from a century ago to the test, but it was not as easy as pointing a big lens at the M87 galaxy and pressing a button. It took years of work and the collaboration of more than 200 scientists to make it happen. It also required about half a ton of hard drives.

    Data collection for the historic black hole image began in 2017 with a coordinated effort called the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT). That isn’t a single instrument but rather a collection of seven radio telescopes from around the world. The EHT used a principle called interferometry to combine the capacity of all those telescopes, creating a “virtual” telescope the size of the Earth.

    The EHT had to collect a huge volume of data to deliver us this one image.

    According to Marrone, 5 petabytes is equal to 5,000 years of MP3 audio. There’s simply no way to send that much data efficiently over the internet. It’s faster to actually ship the hard drives to collaborators around the world. That’s why MIT has 1,000 pounds of hard drives sitting in its Haystack Observatory labs.

    Blue Marble
    Blue Marble is an image of Earth taken on December 7, 1972, from a distance of about 29,000 kilometers (18,000 miles) from the planet's surface. It was taken by the crew of the Apollo 17 spacecraft on its way to the Moon

    So if you went on a journey ---you'd take at least one lone photo.

    Why is it so rare to find old fashioned photos of the earth with the moon and the Sun and a distant Mercury and Venus.

    Yo yo ayez gots yo money. It's just 1 light year away. I'll be right back with it.

    Yeah, it's a shame.

    OTOH, I could still be around.

    Maybe nothing is true. Maybe everything is permitted.

    Whenever I look closely enough at duality, I start seeing the cracks and the bleed-through, and it's all the same.

    This also happened to me when I investigated the duality of the One and the Many.

    A bit of unneeded forum sarcasm. Sorry it caused you concern, thanks for asking.

    A hoax, you mean? I doubt it. The Hubble Space Telescope images are studied and used by countless scientists around the world. The Deep Field images are used to identify some of the earliest galaxies in formation 13 billion years ago.

    When they say "We simplified the Tax code" ---that's a hoax concealed by millions right infront of every school child text books.

    When the Hubble Space Telescope images can show the earth, moon and sun in one picture POST IT!

    I will miss him. Too bad. He'd make a good case study IMO.
