    Are wormholes real or are they just magic disguised as physics and maths? And if they are real how do they work and where can we find them?

      I take issue with the guy passing through the wormhole dying of old age when the proper time (Eigenzeit) is unaffected. Time only for the outstanding observer halts to a crawl. Am I in the wrong here?

    This video says that Einstein Rosen Bridges can not be crossed. However, I haven't come across any other information on the time of crossing Einstein Rosen bridges to be infinite. Lots other sites give the impression that Einstein Rosen bridges could be traversable. and that instead of possibly leading to a mirrored universe they would connect two points in space. Could someone describe the difference between the wormholes spoken about at the beginning of the video and Einstein Rosen Bridges?

      Einstein Rosen bridges can't be crossed. The information you read is wrong or was misunderstood. There are other type of wormholes which are traversable though, but they have extra ingredients like exotic matter and stuff to make them stable, or at least stable for long enough.

    Tour telefoons can be a wormholes,
    The light on your telephone is beamt in by 3g 4g umts etc. Thats nothing more or less then radiation, radiation is also the only sort of ellement as whe know that comes out of a whormhole (particals that are matter are to heavy and suckt in) a other thing to know is the time dont excist so our perspectife and out mathmatical system is not the real way to think. Time is on mars 24 hour and 38 minits. But in a whole other sollar sistem things are diffrent but sort of the same becouse our univers is the univers of ballans , do you whant to experiance a difrent way of thinking than you have to hack the brain to understand sutch sort of things E.M.D.R. is a basic way to do it. That method is used here in the netherlands to qure ptsd patiants but its nothing more or less then hypnose.. i hackt my one brain using a way and adding a ellement that is letting me to think faster, and with faster i mean more FPS

    What do you mean the black hole at the center of a galaxy could actually be a wormhole? Why would things be orbiting a wormhole? I've never heard that wormholes have gravity, and even in this video that certainly isn't made clear. And if a wormhole has gravity equivalent to a supermassive black hole, wouldn't it _be_ one?

    • Realguy McCoolname
      Realguy McCoolname 5 дней назад

      As a followup: It has been confirmed, 2 months after this video was published, that the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy is _not_ a wormhole. If you want to read about it, look at the Wikipedia page on "Sagittarius A*" under the section "Central Black Hole" Basically a wormhole would've been smaller, and they could tell by the way things interacted with the event horizon

    you got Einstein Rosen bridges completely wrong. an ER bridges are theoretical "wormholes" between two entangled black holes, not between a black k hole and a white hole. although you are correct about us never being ever go through one and come out the other black hole.
