Towards the Black Void

This is the heading of one of the cantos of Sri Aurobindo's Savitri!!!. I just opened the book, saw this heading and named this as the title. However I am really awestruck by the meaning it conveys. According to the big-bang theory, our universe sprang into existence as "singularity" around 13.7 billion years ago. Singularities are zones which defy our current understanding of physics. They are thought to exist at the core of "black holes." Black holes are areas of intense gravitational pressure. The pressure is thought to be so intense that finite matter is actually squished into infinite density (a mathematical concept which truly boggles the mind). These zones of infinite density are called "singularities." So everything comes out of black voids and finally it gets sucked up and destroyed into the black voids. posted by withluvGanesh @ 11:19 AM
