Our Universe In A Wormhole Of A Bigger Universe?

Do you feel like you might be in a wormhole inside a black hole?

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Could our universe be located within the interior of a wormhole which itself is part of a black hole that lies within a much larger universe?

If this is true then we are isolated from a much larger universe. Do you feel the estrangement from the larger universe? Or the sense of abandonment? Maybe we were tossed into the black hole by some group in the larger universe just throwing out the trash.

On the bright side. we might all be standing on an Einstein-Rosen Bridge.

Such a scenario in which the universe is born from inside a wormhole (also called an Einstein-Rosen Bridge) is suggested in a paper from Indiana University theoretical physicist Nikodem Poplawski in Physics Letters B. The final version of the paper was available online March 29 and will be published in the journal edition April 12.

If we could figure out how to get off the bleeding bridge we could step up into a far larger universe. Got that to look forward to.
