Cosmic Natural Selection from wikipedia:

The theory surmises that a collapsing black hole causes the emergence of a new universe on the "other side", whose fundamental constant parameters (masses of elementary particles, Planck constant, elementary charge, and so forth) may differ slightly from those of the universe where the black hole collapsed. Each universe thus gives rise to as many new universes as it has black holes. The theory contains the evolutionary ideas of "reproduction" and "mutation" of universes, and so is formally analogous to models of population biology.

Do you think this is possible?

the law of conservation of energy implies that each of the baby universes would only be a tiny fraction of the daddy universe, making baby universes infinitely small over generations, unless black holes can create matter, and everyone knows that the only way to create matter is God using magic.

I see. And then this outer universe is also just the other side of a black hole that's inside an even bigger parent universe (and on and on through infinity)? I mean, everything is just a bunch of swirling vortexes of after all, so why the hell don't we throw this into the mix? All matter and energy is really just a harmonic wave created by the reactions between forces,

Yeah, that's what I've always thought about this one. Conservation of mass and energy means that whatever "universe" "appears" on the "other side" of a black hole is really, really, tiny, unless there's some kind of infinite regression of mass/density/size of particles that make up atoms.

Really tiny in relation to what? Absolutely it doesn't matter. Proportionally it might be the same "size" as the parent. We dont know how big we are. Maybe we are the infinitesimally small ones.

Every black hole in our current universe could possibly lead to the same baby universe, but there's nothing backing up that hypothesis.

I'm excited that this question might be answered within my lifetime, but at this point there's no point speculating except for entertainment's sake, especially not amateur physicists such as ourselves. Sorry if anyone is an actual physicist.

Ummm, pure speculation.

There is no "other side" to a black hole. It's just an inescapable gravity well.

theres an event horizon that blocks our observations, thus clearly dividing the black hole into the side we can observe and the other side. what might be on the other side is a different matter, but the other side is most definitely there and remains unobserved.

> the other side is most definitely there
got any proof or is it just your religious belief?

if something has two sides, it has the other side, thats all Im saying.
event horizon prevents any direct observation of the inside of a black hole, so "the other side of this two sided thing called black hole" is the most precise definition available to us.
I'm not saying there are universes there, just disagreeing with the statement that black holes dont have two sides, or that both of those sides are equally understood or cognizable. there is plenty of room for speculation here, those are after all one of the most mysterious and inaccessible objects in the universe. trying to silence it with "its just a gravity well" wont cut it.

Then the "other side" is a super dense region of space made up of the leftovers from a supernova + whatever other material that has fallen into the black hole since it was created, that is so compact and massive that even light isn't able to escape it.

Yeah, some funny frame of reference things probably happen if you were to fall into a black hole, and someone were observing you fall in. But there is no reason to ascribe mystical properties to them, like OP was suggesting. Occam's Razor, you know?

You realize semantics are not gospel, right? There are no physical sides to an event horizon because an event horizon is not a physical thing; if you were falling into a black hole you probably wouldn't even observe the event horizom. The event horizon is no more a physical feature than the Goldilocks zone... You can talk about it, but it doesn't really do anything in and of itself, it's just a descriptive label.

indeed, the size of it is relative to your velocity to or from the black hole.
