There's Black Holes, for example. Cosmologists speculate that

they are usual in the centers of galaxies. Our contemporary

astrophysical technology helps us feel around the conclusion

that there is such a thing as a Black Hole. However, one does

not want to get close to such a cosmic beast. According to

general relativity, a Black Hole possesses a gravitational field

so powerful that nothing, but nothing can escape its pull. This

includes matter and even light. Nothing escapes--maybe.

Some theorists believe that a Black Hole might actually be

a wormhole. Thus it is a kind of an inner tunnel where one

might travel from one point to another point in the universe.

Hard to figure, however, if everything that enters such a hole

is destroyed. On the other hand, maybe matter seemingly

dumped into a Black Hole arrives at the other end of the tunnel.

Regardless cosmic theories are fascinating There's the String

Theory that combines general relativity and quantum mechanics

into a quantum theory of gravity. This theory also involves

additional dimensions to our usual three spatial dimensions

plus our one dimension of time. And further developed String

Theory moves into what is deemed the Holographic Principle.

More on that as we get into Quantum Theory.

The basis of Quantum Theory can be summarized in three

propositions: (1) In the subatomic world, few things can be

predicted with 100 % precision; however, accurate predictions

can be made about the probability of any particular outcome;

(2) One has to work with the probabilities rather than certainties,

because it is impossible--for an observer--to describe all

aspects of a particle at once as to its speed and location; and

(3) Electromagnetic energy, such as light or heat, does not

always behave like a continuous wave--rather it is grainy

because energy can be transferred only in quantum packages,

and thus light has a dual character, sometimes displaying

wavelike aspects and in other circumstances as particles.

And the magic component in this cosmic story, whether it's about

us or whether about the whole universe, is Energy!

In 1900 Max Planck had originated the theory of Quantum

Mechanics, which is a theory of energy as emanated in discrete

packages. Soon Albert Einstein took Planck's idea one step

further, assuming that light was quantized. And later David

Bohm, a premier physicist, known as the "Father of Quantum

Mechanics," believed that this underlying background of Energy

to be the plenum of the universe. Bohm likened this plenum,

this immense background of Energy. to be one whole and

unbroken movement that he called the "holomovement."
