Since their discovery, microquasars have provided an opportunity to gain information about black holes. As England’s Astronomer Royal, Martin Rees says, “Black holes of different masses behave in qualitatively the same way. Almost everything about them simply scales up or down with the black hole’s mass.”
Microquasars were first discovered within our own galaxy due to the emission of gamma rays like their larger cousins, quasars. Quasars are known to be bright objects and emit the type of gamma radiation that has the precise energy that is produced by the electron-positron annihilation process. Microquasars have the same patterns, but are much smaller and their processes occur at much faster speeds.
One of their more bizarre characteristics is that they periodically emit jets of very fast moving electrons, so fast that initially they appeared to be breaking the light barrier. This superluminal travel turned out to be an optical illusion, with the true speed being more like 92 per cent of the speed of light. Furthermore, the jets are emitted in a narrow beam, which is proving difficult to explain.
Stranger still, the bursts can occur suddenly and then rapidly fall away. This sort of process has earned microquasars the nickname of the great annihilators reflecting the involvement of the electron-positron annihilation process.
Physicists are stumped as to what could be creating this behavior. Some theories say they are the result of a star being sucked into the associated black hole, causing some of its material to be ejected very rapidly. Some say that the magnetic field outside the black hole is being whipped up into a frenzy by its rotational energy and emitted. The accretion disc around a black hole containing gas and material is often blamed, as some believe the high speeds of rotation around black holes allows material to become so hot that it is ejected into space from near the vicinity of the black hole. However, the geometry of the ejections indicate that they are from the black hole itself and not the accretion disc. They lie perpendicular to the black hole center. Although some do mathematical contortions to try and prove a case that the accretion disc can cause this sort of outcome, perhaps the math is being forced to fit the observations.
As previously stated, cosmologists are examining microquasars that occur within our own galaxy to provide them with insights as to the behavior of black holes in general. In a similar fashion, let’s use the example of the microquasar to explain the Black Hole Principle.
We now have all the elements in place to understand the Black Hole Principle. To do this we need to recap on some of the principles we have discussed throughout this book. If we recall, some physicists are concluding from quantum physics that consciousness is fundamental to reality. In Chapter 8, we saw how the universe exists as many dimensions of consciousness and how some of these dimensions are invisible to us. In Chapter 11, we discussed how the speed of light may not be the speed limit of the universe at all, but simply the limit of the three-dimensional world and of our
Above this limit lies what we previously called dark matter, which we now know to contain the light of higher dimensions. The darkest places of the universe have traditionally been black holes, which contain a core of infinite density, a singularity that is beyond the laws of physics. A black hole is surrounded by an event horizon, beyond which nothing can return.
In the 1970s Stephen Hawking proposed that black holes emit radiation through the annihilation-creation process of matter, antimatter and light that occurs in the quantum vacuum in the vicinity of the event horizon. Recently we have realized that black holes exist at the center of every galaxy. They are also found within our galaxy in objects called microquasars, which mysteriously emit jets of fast particles at almost the speed of light. These objects show signs of the annihilation process.
We are now ready to totally reverse what we know about black holes. Black holes are not destructive; they are the source of creation for the universe. At the center of the black hole is the singularity, which we can now redefine as an infinite source of light. From this infinite source, light makes its journey, stepping down through the higher dimensions that lie beyond our perception, until it reaches the edge of our reality. This is the event horizon of the black hole, delineating what lies above and below the speed of light.
At the event horizon, the splitting of light occurs into matter and antimatter. The matter, in the form of the electron, is emitted in fast-moving jets. Because they have only just reached this dimension from higher dimensions, they are still going at tremendous speeds when they enter our dimension, almost at the speed of light in fact.
Because we are unable to see beyond the event or Perception Horizon, we see these jets as appearing out of nowhere, or try and explain them in terms of three-dimensional processes.
But that is not all there is to the creation process, nor all there is to explaining what we see emerging from black holes. When light hits our dimension from higher ones, it also produces a component of antimatter. To examine what happens to this component, we need to fall through the looking glass and enter the mirror world.
