Holy shit, that's a fairly open-ended remit. I'll start with the obtuse, then, eh. The Hawkwind room in Habbo Hotel, for those who haven't seen it!

There open fanes and gaping graves
Yawn level with the luminous waves;
But not the riches there that lie
In each idol's diamond eye-

I am the family face
flesh perishes, I live on,
projecting trait and trace
through time to times anon,
and leaping from place to place
over oblivion

the years-heir’d feature that can
in curve and voice and eye
despise the human span
of durance -- that is I
the eternal thing in man,
that heeds no call to die

~ Thomas Hardy

A curious one

11 add 2 take away 1 equals 12. Explain the following...

Take the letters ELEVEN and add the letters TWO
ELEVENTWO
Take away the letters ONE
ELEVTW
Rearrange them....TWELVE
Coincidence?

Maybe it got some extra lift from some smuggled substances...

Not only that - 13 x 7 = 28.

Scientists have estimated the mass of the entire universe using the motions of galaxies and gravitational constants. Interestingly, a single black hole with the same mass would have an event horizon size of about the same size as our visible universe. Is our universe actually the inside of a black hole? Did the big bang happen when the said blackhole was created in another universe.

Deep Huh?

As the definition and contents of a black hole are defying physicians and the human imagination up to press [although we seem to be getting closer, thanks to stephen Hawkins] then that may mean we DO actually know everything about them, there function and existance, but dont realise it. Mind you, surely, it would be mighty windier most of the time.

... that would have to mean the universe is finite in matter. and since nothing is
creating or destroying fundamental particles, that means the universe is infinite in
time. that would mean the universe has no beginning and no end. it always has existed
and always will exist.

now, suppose this is reality. what would that mean in terms of any given state of order
through any given set of change over any given span?

The physics of black holes are fairly well understood and the structure of spiral and active galaxies and quasars offers pretty good proof. Reminds me of the JBS Haldane quote "The universe is not just stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine" If it were possible to enter a black hole without being torn apart by the massive gravity, it would possibly offer a one way route to another universe.
