discrete calculations of 1s and 0s in transistors are not capable of harboring sapient life with free will, mental processes may emulate the calculations of computers but they must involve random quantum fluctuations for the being to be truly sapient

transferring control over civilization to electronic beings would be like genociding ourselves and creating simulations of sapient beings to replace us, it would be a huge mistake

intredasting but not strictly proven, we know very little about such things

I think in generally we need to diversify the different forms of life that exist. However there is always a threat of one such form of life being vastly superior, expanding uncontrollably and eradicating all the others.

What about a cyborg with a human brain? Something that's mostly robot, but controlled by organics. It would be cool if they could transfer people to android type bodies like 'ghost in the shell' I'd totally sign on for that! Not sure though about getting a fully technolyzed body with only a human head though, (that wasn't explained in too great detail).

are these just markov chain generations?

Is this the real life?

Or is this just fantasy?

Caught in a landslide,

No escape from reality.

The event horizon of a black hole is comparable somewhat to the event horizon of the known universe. The big bang apparently started from a single point which is comparable to a singularity. Imperfections in cosmic background radiation could be comparable to the imperfect distribution of matter entering a black hole. However this is not enough evidence.

For this theory to make sense you would need to make the outlandish speculation that time is going backwards in a black hole such that from the perspective of someone inside the black hole it is expanding from a singularity rather than going towards the singularity. There are various problems with this.

1: Light simply doesn't escape the black hole, nothing exceeds the speed of light and starts going backwards in time.

2: Once light or matter reaches the event horizon it is traveling in a straight line towards the singularity, I hear. It would be an eventless universe.

3: Matter entering a black hole never reaches the singularity. In our universe apparently the big bang occurred at a finite point in time about 15 billion years ago.

4: Hawking radiation means black holes eventually evaporate. From our perspective matter entering a black hole would approach but never reach the event horizon before the black hole evaporates.

also worth noting that time dilation increases as you near the event horizon, if the trend continues then in theory time would start going backwards

But according to the mathematical model, time slows and stops. It does not at any point move backward.
