That is not a square, that is a Rice Krispy Cube.

u/Jeynarl 13d ago

Technically there's no such thing as a rice krispy square since all of them have some finite thickness to it, making them some type of three-dimensional hexahedron

364

u/roy_rogers_photos 13d ago

That's what drives me crazy. The idea that no matter how thin, it will always be part of a 3Dworld and there for will never not be 3 dimensional. Even a line drawn with pencil is still three dimensional. In. Sane.

u/yacht-suxx 13d ago

Black holes are commonly portrayed to be spherical, that however is merely its Schwarzschildradius the point at which light can no longer escape. The actual "hole" is in its center, a singularity infinitely small, so 0 dimensional. If that calms you.

(do note though that this is only one of several viable theories because the laws of reality, at least as far as we can quantify them, break down in black holes)

Depending on if you take the name literally or not, it could fit either a metal band or a very depressing post-rock one.

If calm is what you wanted how about there's a massive black hole in the center of our galaxy. Or the Andromeda galaxy is set to collide with the milky way in a billion or so years. But don't worry we will be ok! Because the sun will die before then and wipe us out. Good thing we won't have to see the heat death of the universe! Which wouldn't be so scary. Just instant death due to a death bubble traveling many light-years per second, slowly wiping out the universe until no life can form anywhere.

The actual "hole" is in its center, a singularity infinitely small, so 0 dimensional.

But if it rotates, it would be a 1-dimensional ring. Sometimes called a "Ringularity".

9

u/WikiSummarizerBot 13d ago

Ring singularity

A ring singularity or ringularity is the gravitational singularity of a rotating black hole, or a Kerr black hole, that is shaped like a ring.

“Infinitely small” and “0” are not the same Number.

This is why the concept of limits exists in Calculus, specifically because they are not the same.

7

u/TheGoldenArgosy 13d ago

Are black holes like the dead pixels of our universe?

16

u/Ragnr99 13d ago

Technically not a 0d point, even black hole cores have a (theoretical) radius.

11

u/Goreticus 13d ago

I'm not expert but time and space basically collapses in the center doesn't it? different rules.

24

u/Ragnr99 13d ago

That’s one theory. Ultimately, since we can’t actually observe the center of a black hole, the real answer is nobody has a clue. Not even the pros who study it for a living.

12

u/LostFun4 13d ago

Yeah lol, ive done black hole research (on accretion disks specifically) and the general feeling was exactly that lmao.

15

u/Praesentius 13d ago

We don't have quantum theory of gravity, so our current models are insufficient to describe what is going on in there.

So, when someone says that the laws of physics break down, it really means that we don't have the math that most accurately describes it. Not yet, at least.

3

u/FatWollump 13d ago

Doesn't general relativity just spit out that the black hole must have a radius of 0? Of course the conversation about wether general relativity is applicable at that scale, or we need to use quantum gravity (lmao I wish) or string theory, is another thing, but still.

2

u/thews 13d ago

It is one dimensional. I think the photon sphere for a non spinning black hole is actually 3/2 scharzchild radius and it shrinks if spinning .

u/tl01magic 13d ago edited 13d ago

sorry missed you last comment where you acknowldge what you had just said is merely theory and more importantly not difinative, accepted or within the realm of the modelling the narrative you provided tries to speak to.....simply put the region of a bh you're "describing" is not defined.

" The actual "hole" is in its center, a singularity infinitely small, so 0 dimensional"

is just modelling, and note said model is of spacetime, as you "mentioned" is multi-dimensional. nearly part of your point...there is no dimensions predicted. is just an event, or "point".

There are models and support of there being a "definitive" volume with a surface.

just my opinion but if trying to conceptualize what is within the BH region, looking to big bang / early universe may help. Specifically the more common narrative that tries to differentiate spacetime from.....not spacetime.

Can a region be so full of energy that spacetime is "displaced", simply "not there", occupies every possible volume of spacetime with energy. not that the region lacks energy / information...

u/Sinocu 13d ago

There’s a theory that says this: a creature living in the 4th dimension would be able to see trough wall, time and space, that blew my mind. It’s a lot complex to explain but, in “easy” mode: we can see trough 2D walls, the 2 sides of it, so for a creature in 4D it could be able to see trough walls in the third dimension

4

u/yacht-suxx 13d ago

I think it would be way more interesting if it wasn't time, but a 4th spacial dimension. Could explain dark matter/energy. If they would inhabit time they would probably have to be passive observers because we have no evidence of time fuckery (however the argument could be made, that we would have no way of knowing of any changes, because they are in our past)

would a shadow technically be two-dimensional?

3

u/FatWollump 13d ago

A shadow is a two dimensional projection of a 3D object. So yes. But they are not necessarily objects. It's why we can draw 3 dimensional shapes on 2d paper; we don't draw in the third dimension, but we just use a projection of a three dimensional object onto a two dimensional object.

That's the whole point of 2D, "layering" is impossible to begin with. The moment you successfully place 1 square "on top" of another you have thickness, and thus 3 dimensions.
