During one of Wisenheirmer’s classes, he open up for questions regarding theoretical wormholes. It followed the lecture given by Dr. Chad Chandler, notable Cosmologist from MIT, on Black Holes.
Professor Wisenheirmer began by asking, “How many of you here believe Wormholes are possible?” Seventeen out of the class of twenty-five raised their hands.
“Not to embarrass any of you who did not respond, “What are your objections to this hypothesis?”
An undergraduate freshmen stood and said, “I don’t believe in them because there seems to be no reliable scientific proof that they exist. Not to be contentious, but I believe it is nothing more than scientific conjecture. Pure science fiction, if you will.”
“What you say is well founded,” responded the professor. “There are many things in this Universe that we still don’t completely comprehend as of yet. Take for instance, near death experiences and/or out of body experiences. According to a Gallup poll, approximately eight million Americans claim to have had a near-death experience. Plus it is estimated that there are many more who’ve never come forward for fear of ridicule. I’m sure most of you, if not all of you, have heard tales of folks traveling through a tunnel where a white light appears at the end. The following slide is being displayed in anticipation of your concern.”
“Although not absolutely verifiable according to traditional scientific methods, there are many scientist, including myself, that lean toward the Wormhole hypothesis. In fact, there is the hypothetical topological Einstein-Rosen bridge, a feature of spacetime that would fundamentally be a “shortcut” through spacetime. It was hypothesized by Albert Einstein and his colleague Nathan Rosen, who first published the result in 1935. The following animation shows an artist conception taken from survivors of near deaf experiences.
“It is my contention,” Wisenheirmer continued, “these are Wormholes that connect to the eternal realm. That is, completely outside this Universe, but into the third heaven. In turn some have testified about going to hell through similar experiences. In many instance there are cases of meeting with deceased relatives, angelic beings, Jesus, and so forth. Most of the time they are told to return, because their time is not up yet.
Just then, a seasoned sophomore raised up and asserted, “I still don’t see how all this is possible. Won’t anything going into the Singularity of the Wormhole be crushed by extreme gravitational forces?”
“Anything, yes,” responded the professor, “However, we are referring to spirits here. Spirits in their travel through a hole are not affected by gravitational pulls, nor matter, nor electromagnetic forces. Distances through space, and the time it takes to travel those distances are instantaneous relative to our time. It’s all relative, as Einstein would say.”
“So here they are: those two chalk talk fanatics, Albert Einstein and his colleague Nathan Rosen. Two God gifted Jews.
“This is another subject to chew on. Think it through and form your own decision, but during your analysis try to formulate your theories based on as much scientific fact as possible. Maybe you will one day discover a scientific breakthrough as these two heavy weights. There is still a great deal more to uncover about our Universe and beyond. We’ll delve into more of these mysterious topics in upcoming classes.”
