Just when I finally through I’d groked the measure of the universe – that it was massive beyond imagining and I was infinitesimal – but not so infinitesimal as the really little stuff like quarks – the news arrived that our universe may only be a tiny thing in a black hole in a much larger universe that we really couldn’t imagine – and on and on seemingly to some mind-boggling infinity. How do we like those apples?

"ScienceDaily (Apr. 7, 2010) — 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? 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. Poplawski takes advantage of the Euclidean-based coordinate system called isotropic coordinates to describe the gravitational field of a black hole and to model the radial geodesic motion of a massive particle into a black hole.

That's the thing about Infinity - just when ya think ya got it sussed, something else turns up.

wv is "denstrus"

I had strange restless dreams... leads me to believe we exist in more than this dimension.

I'm pretty sure they're just making this shit up.

We'll cross the Einstein-Rosen Bridge when we come to it.
