we watched some tv the other day. (you, garret, and i.) a 1 hour show from the science channel about the hawking paradox.

i firmly refused to believe information/things can cease to exist anywhere, and think they must just be somewhere else, not bliped out of being completely. you and garret were more undecided. well, less adamant anyway... you like to oppose me for fun sometimes.

and this was fun, or a close thing.

so, mid-show, you were very much on hawking's side, because you thought all this erasing indicated time travel to be quite possible, as the past was not even THERE and quite able to be re-written, no re- about it.

i liked some of this train of thought, but still could not swallow it Hole, as AMANDA was. and were, and will.

(the show then ended with hawking saying that he was wrong about information, it doesn't get destroyed, but only because there are parallel universes, and everything with a black hole in it will eventually disappear, including the black holes, leaving only the one universe.... amanda does not think this is the wHole picture either.)

no. what amanda liked best was a side comment and not a point at all. there are millions and billions of black holes, that we can see in space, of varying sizes... with infinity going both ways, there could be millions and billions of black holes in this room, in your cup of coffee, inside your head.


garret was not too excited. he just said- yeah amanda. you probably have more in you head than most people.

but you liked this idea almost as much as i.

and, in case a black hole sucked the memory from your brain already... very possible since this all occurred inside my head... i thought i should tell you the story.

From the smallest thing we can see, the the most distant galaxies, its all the same. Its just one big fractal.
