Captain Physics & Logic to the rescue!
Er, yeah. Bust my ego down a notch before I continue. I'll make sure not to attack anyone, because we are all students, and we are all learning.
Now, SkyFox, yes, your idea has been thought of many times before - in fact it seems it is one of those "most smart people think of this at one point
or another" things, like the "Different Colours" theory*, or the "We're in a video-game" theory, or the "Humans were seeded by aliens" theory.
Whether something you saw as a child planted the idea, or you just came up with it, it's something that a striking number of people come up with
given average circumstances and a general amount of knowledge.
Now, I've noticed 1 chief flaw in your theory. There are numerous minor flaws, such as the one pointed out first by yourself, then by an attacker,
then again by yourself, that it does not actually give us a beginning, second that it falls apart if the mass in a underlapping universe ever manages
to be less than the universe it feeds into, and so on. The chief problem is that you say we constantly hold _too much_ matter, and we build new black
holes to expel this matter, but continue to have an overabundance, and continue to build black holes forever. I will now elabourate on why this is a
Universe A has 10 mass units. Universe B has dimensions of 0,0,0 in length, width, and height, and has 0 mass units. We're keeping this simple, no 11
dimensions and no superstrings for the time being. So, when Universe A gets an 11th mass unit, it opens a BH (appreviation for black hole, so I don't
have to type that 30 times), and the BH runs that mass unit into Universe B. Universe B then gains 1 mass unit per time unit, through the first BH,
for 10 time units, until it reaches breach, and has to create its own black hole on the 11th time unit, and start filling universe C.
There's logically no need to ever have more than one black hole at once. Case A cannot be correct, since we have billions of BH's.
Universe A has X mass units. Universe B has 0 length, width, and height units, yadda yadda yadda. The Black hole, for the first time unit, deposits y
mass units, for the 2nd, deposits 4, for the third, 9, 4th 16, th 25, etc... - Thus, there is a BH needed immediately, then very soon another, and
another, etc... - but the problem is, an ever increasing number of black holes following the same rule as the single initial black hole will
eventually cause a universe to outweigh its successor, and to collapse. The collapse would echo down so far so fast, that the process would have
started and begun rather quickly.
There are many cases, and they all run into problems. You did some good thinking, and I recognise (as it seems few readers in this thread did) the
chief point that was different from your theory as the usually heard one, is that yours takes care of itself. Yours feeds upon a number of thoughts,
and strings them together nicely - but it encounters errors. Good thinking though. Get into string theory and wacko crap like Ekpyrotic universal
models. I've got a theory of that that I have yet to be able to explain properly in person, let alone over the internet, that will have its insane
flaws as well, but hopefully will add a new idea into the mix.
I had other things to note, but I'm running short on time. Woo Physics!
