Why Your Black Hole Isn’t Working and How to Fix It




About: too many hobbies, not enough career - if a hobby of mine would but volunteer

In my first instructable we went over how to construct your own universe and I am sure that some of you were not to be stopped and pushed your universe to the very limits.

Unshakably gripped by ambition you would not rest until you had in your own universe the crown jewel of physics, a black hole.

In this instructable I will explain both why your black hole works and if it does not, why and what you can do to repair your effort.


- one universe of your own creation

- plenty of excess time and space

Step 1: Gather Your Things

Gather up your time and space - all of it (you’re going to need a lot of it for this one).

Time holds everything together while space pulls everything apart.

Time in your universe can be compared to the dark matter of our universe - the binding force that pulls everything together allowing the formation of mass and systems of mass. Increased concentrations of time can compress greater amounts of space allowing a body or system of mass to harbor incredible potential energy.

Space in your universe can be compared to the dark energy of our universe - the expanding force which allows matter to decay, energy to be released, and space itself to expand against the compressing forces of time.

Your universe exists between the forces of the two, engineered and operating as a system of balance. Each form of interaction carries specific properties and those properties vary according to their magnitude.

Very simply - if your black hole was a success, your galactic system is in balance. If your black hole was a failure your system is out of balance.

Step 2: Time for a Black Hole

If you’ve already figured out how to make a black hole, then you’ll use the one you’ve made. If not, then all you need to do is take as much time as you can and cram it into as little a space as possible. Upon doing so, you’ll notice that the space around your concentration of time is drawn inward according to the magnitude of your black hole.

You’ll also notice an odd effect, one related to what we can see at home on earth.

In the case of our home as you approach the earth and the effects of gravity increase, the passing of time slows.

In your universe, time passes more slowly because the expanding effects of space have a lesser effect as time density increases.

A black hole in your universe is a volume of space of one hundred percent time density. The rate of time passing, in theory, drops to zero.

Step 3: Galactic Initiative

Now that you have your black hole you can build a galaxy.

The key to success in galactic construction is as I said before, balance.

As you add stars and planets and comets and asteroids and people and places and things; all mass and acceleration and charge, watts and amps and velocities, teslas and seconds and hertz, and so on and so forth must all add and subtract and multiply and divide to equal (1).

As long as s^3 / m^4 = 1 then your galaxy, nay your entire universe will hold together.

Good luck and Enjoy!

    I wanted to build my own black hole but needed a large supply of time so I used the wasted time from work that my boss says our department has. Now my black hol has g own so bi it s sucking eve y thin into t. Ev n my mmen .

    You have my attention! I was in the process of writing a complex formula for energy as related by emotions and feelings and felt I missed something. My formula is missing time. And perhaps a black hole.

    Thanks! I finally managed to get my black holes running, but I still have a problem. Even though I positioned some of my supermassive black holes in the center of galaxies, I just cant get my quasars running.
    Any advice?

    You've run out ahead of me!

    Quasars are the subject of my next instructable so check back in soon and hopefully I can answer all of your questions.

    Thank you for commenting :)

    Did you put them into star-forming galaxies, or large dusty ellipticals? For proper initialization of your quasar, you need to have both a strong magnetic field and a thick accretion disk around your SMBH. Appendix A (Troubleshooting) of your AGN Users Guide may also be helpful if you gotten the basic structure right.
