Stephen Hawking (1942 to 1918) came forward with an idea about BLACK HOLES. Using advanced physics and calculus...he fashioned a theory about time claiming that where there is infinite density...there is not any lapse of time. A BLACK HOLE...for example...has such density that its gravitational field is so strong that even light can't escape its pull. Hawking theorized black holes dissipated eventually...however...through radiation emitted at the event horizon...that spot where light can't escape any longer from the Black Hole's grip. While the evaporation might take 5 trillion years to be completed...nonetheless...it explained "why" there was still sufficient information* in the universe to keep it going...so to speak.
*Mother Nature tried to make Stephen Hawking "shut-up" and stop revealing her secrets. Before Hawking died...he told the world that man-made climate change was NONSENSE...that he realized how such nonsense was being used to screw with truth and justice...and...he wasn't about to sit silently and permit such an idiotic myth replace his theory of time.
