Leonard Susskind explains how black holes may retain information:
We know that time slows down in the proximity of great masses that have extreme curving effects on space-time. Effectively, from the point of view of
someone falling into a black hole, looking outward, the events of the "external" world will speed up, more and more as we fall closer to the
singularity. Basically we witness the rest of the lifetime of the universe, while we fall towards the singularity at normal speed in our own reference
system. Visually this means more and more light "arriving in" per second, eventually peaking in all the existing light in the universe hitting our
retina in a unit of planck time, that is, if there is any light at all, because with time more and more matter falls into black holes and in the end
there is no visible matter left.
Add to this the possibility that black holes "bounce back" to form white holes as soon as they're formed. You may ask, where are these white holes
then? Remember time dilation? You'll see them at the end of time. More on this in this Nature article:
Let's look at the possibility of all the black holes uniting into a single black hole. This would work perfectly in a universe that oscillates
between Big Bangs and Big Crunches. But even if you argue a cosmological constant that allows for infinite expansion of the universe, due to quantum
fluctuations all the remaining matter (mainly a bunch of black holes of varying sizes) could end up in one point. The following quote will illustrate
"In another article entitled, "Disturbing Implications of a Cosmological Constant" 8 researchers from Stanford and MIT examined some of the
"problems" associated with a cosmological constant. In their paper, they stated that the implications of a cosmological constant "lead to very deep
paradoxes, which seem to require major revisions of our usual assumptions." They admit that "there is no universally accepted explanation of how the
universe got into such a special state" and that their study, "Far from providing a solution to the problem, we will be led to a disturbing
crisis." They also admit, "Some unknown agent initially started the inflation high up on its potential, and the rest is history."
In examining problems with the cosmological constant, the authors are concerned that ultimate fate of the universe is complete entropy with all the
matter and energy distributed over maximally expanded space-time. They cite the ability of the universe to undergo "Poincare recurrences" as a
possible "solution" to one of the "problems." There is a certain theoretical possibility that after the universe is maximally expanded that it
would come back together again into one point. Think of it like this. Let's say you are in a room with air molecules randomly moving around in the
room. There is a certain probability that the random motion of the molecules could cause all of them to travel to one corner of the room, leaving you
in a complete vacuum. Obviously, this would not be a good thing to happen, but it is possible, with an interval on the order of once every 10^60
years. Since we only live 10^2 years in a universe that has been around for only 10^10 years, it is practically impossible. So, what is the time it
would take for a fully expanded universe to come back into a single point? The authors calculate the value as e10^120 years."
So, in summary, what we're looking at is all information being saved in black holes, or never even getting lost but bouncing back straight away.
Imagine the time when the expansion of the universe turns around into contraction and all the stuff of the universe ends up in black holes, eventually
uniting as the "Big Crunch Black Hole", for which have no external world to look out into, and which will not last forever to any external observer.
The only existing reference point for this one black hole will be itself, which, as it is about to be formed, sucks in the rest of the universe (all
other black holes "ready" to bounce back), and, all information (experience) saved, itself bounces back into a white hole (another universe), which
will, in structure, build upon what has been "learned" in the previous universe. Basically the oscillating universes theory.
This sounds exactly what is described in the Ra Material, except there these universes are called "Creations", or "Octaves", and the expansion and
contraction is the Creator (the Universe itself) breathing in and out. A few quotes to illustrate:
"In the understanding which we have of the universe or creation as one infinite being, its heart beating as alive in its own intelligent energy, it
merely is one beat of the heart of this intelligence from creation to creation."
"Seventh density is the Density of Foreverness. In that density all of the souls that are there, who have been on the King’s Highway for many
densities, finally release all of the past and turn their heads to the completion of the journey. That density ends in timelessness. Then there is a
pause while the great heart of the Creator beats one more time. And when it comes out of that beat we’re in another first density, starting the
whole octave of densities once again, being sent out once again to gather information so the Creator can find out who He is."
"When the infinite Creator wished to know Itself, Its great heart beat out the next creation with all of its densities and sub-densities and all of
the patterns of those densities and creations. Time and space were invoked and that which before was immeasurable and unknowable became a series of
illusions that, paradoxically, were to some degree knowable, and these shadows of knowing were much desired by the Creator."
Quotes from llresearch.org
The unveiledsecretsandmessagesoflight website also provides the same philosophy in this regard:
"Interlocutor: What is the purpose of the Big Bangs and Big Crunches if within the entity called Eon everything is an Eternal Present?
ABBA: The eternal present, precisely permits the various Big Bang /Big Crunch cycles so that each new universe will be in a higher octave, along with
all the Creation and all the beings that Eon creates again. In turn, Eon also evolves accompanying the evolution of his Creation. And the goal is
evolution. That is the answer."
The Conversations with God books have the same view:
"Universes breathe in and breathe out."
And the list is probably endless.
If I were to use physics to support the idea that the Universe is intelligent, the Creator itself, or at least a part of it, its physical
manifestation, like the vessel that your body is for the soul that you are, I would use the question of physical laws:
