You know how they say there’s a black hole in every galaxy? What if there’s a super tiny black hole in every creatures eyes?
K well don’t think of it as “human only” it started a long time ago with these little cells in the water, and having this bruise that reacted to light more than the rest of the cell. Throughout its evolution the light sensitive cells became the retina and it got a lens and it duplicated. It grew a body and this body evolved to us. This lensing phenomenon is highly strange for it must obey laws of physics. For a human being to see, it must be able to lens all light into this one “black circle”. The retina reacts to three wavelengths (red green blue) and the brain allocates this tricode into the patterns (patterns we see in black and white) in the lens.
I can’t see the diagram all that well, but it looks like it’s basically acting as a lens much like the one found in our eyes. Our eyes also have a completely blind, or black, spot in the middle of them that we don’t notice because our brain automatically fills this space with what it assumes the rest of the object looks like. I’m not sure I believe that this could be a “black hole”, but it is certainly a void in our ability to perceive the world.
I’m not sure how to expand, I just like to think of the world around me in terms of time and space. We are the motion, and we exist in space. Anyone ever play with K’nex as a kid?
This whole idea of “black holes” are points where there is no light. I propose that this is a fractal part of nature, and eyeballs are places where no light escapes.
A black hole, as far as we know can exist as the seeing eye of a more larger and complex (but simple) system.
It seems like the pulling and bending of the dark matter and cluster of galaxies is happening because of gravity, because of by-products of large amounts of mass.
Lenses within the eye seem to work with just the physical properties of the lens, which are three-dimensional. Wouldn’t the pulling and bending of the dark matter be higher-dimensional?
Really interesting! Post more of your thoughts on this!
@Joseph, sorry I thought you meant the blackhole is in the eyeball itself.
Think of it this way… if you get any normal piece of flat glass (without a blackhole), melt it, and shape it in to a disc with buldging centres, it will become a lens and bend all the light that touches in to a single point.
This is how modern cameras and refracting telescopes works
Everything made out of consciousness? That’s really interesting! I know what you mean, I’ve just never heard it put like that!
Man, I don’t even know about dark matter. I just don’t understand it; it’s mindblowing physics stuff.
It is matter that neither emits nor scatters light or other electromagnetic radiation. It makes up something crazy like 83% of the matter in the universe. Therefore, 83% of the mass of the universe is mass that we cannot perceive. Most of it is in space.
Here’s a page explaining dark matter in 60 seconds: http://www.symmetrymagazine.org/cms/?pid=1000451
Super, super fascinating stuff.
Hay well it does kinda suck in light huh o.O
What if a black hole in space = a giant pupil?
I think dark matter makes up most of the mass in the universe, not matter. We don’t know for sure that dark matter is actually matter.
Everything is made of consciousness? Does that mean the universe is dreamed by a God?
What is also fascinating is the ‘double slit experiment’ – where observing the experiment itself can alter the results. So consciousness actually does play a role in the world
My mathematics teacher showed me and a friend this two years ago, Doctor Quantum double slit experiment! String theory explained in simple terms.
