    Are wormholes real or are they just magic disguised as physics and maths? And if they are real how do they work and where can we find them?

    Wondering if you could use exotic matter to create kind of a reverse black hole if its (un?)dense enough

    Wouldnt exotic materr also stop anything going through and repel the materials around it because well the enourmous forces that stop the gravity are definitley going to stop humans

    You wouldn't travel faster than the speed of light. You'd only arrive at your destination sooner. 2 completely different things. Also, how does anything leave a white hole if it takes an infinite amount of time to cross over? You guys really screwed this video up.

    a black hole is just a 4th dimensional sphere made with extreme gravity using a star I don't believe anything is on the other side I think if you get close could it be that your not getting sucked into it but the object is being reduced to atom cause of the extreme force put on it what if you cant go through it since it does have mass i guess in a way a black hole is a 4th dimensional star? we might never know

  • Jesus’s Eternal Son

    Wormholes without substance are really bad they are called also wormwood and swarms of vermin.That is how devil 👿 and his angels get their way into the universal thru traps and suggestions to do his will.Matthew 45Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6“If you are the Son of God,” JESUS’S ETERNAL SON Hebrews 1Psalm 91 huh 🤔 he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:“ ‘He will command his angels concerning you,and they will lift you up in their hands,so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’ c ”7Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’ d ”8Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9“All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”10Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ e ”11Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.2 Timothy 3:6They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires,Revelation 8:11the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.Wisdom 161 Thus they were appropriately punished by similar creatures and tormented by swarms of vermin.Jude 18In the very same way, on the strength of their dreams these ungodly people pollute their own bodies, reject authority and heap abuse on celestial beings. 9But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not himself dare to condemn him for slander but said, “The Lord rebuke you!” d 10Yet these people slander whatever they do not understand, and the very things they do understand by instinct—as irrational animals do—will destroy them.11Woe to them! They have taken the way of Cain; they have rushed for profit into Balaam’s error; they have been destroyed in Korah’s rebellion.12These people are blemishes at your love feasts, eating with you without the slightest qualm—shepherds who feed only themselves. They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind; autumn trees, without fruit and uprooted—twice dead. 13They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame; wandering stars, for whom blackest darkness has been reserved forever.14Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones 15to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” e 16These people are grumblers and faultfinders; they follow their own evil desires; they boast about themselves and flatter others for their own advantage.Like venom of serpents when they harm with poison they did not do it so you can survive but to kill and murder.Jeremiah 11:19I had been like a gentle lamb led to the slaughter; I did not realize that they had plotted against me, saying, "Let us destroy the tree and its fruit; let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name be remembered no more."Why pharaoh said you must not let boys live huh 🤔 Mercy - Hebrews 2:16-18 - Hebrews 9:5-18 Surah Al-Kahf – Verse 98‎قَالَ هَذَا رَحْمَةٌ مِن رَّبّـِي فَإِذَا جَآءَ وَعْدُ رَبّـِي جَعَلَهُ دَكَّآءَ وَكَانَ وَعْدُ رَبّـِي حَقّاً98. “He said: ‘This is mercy from my Lord. But when the promise of my Lord comes to pass, He will make it level (with the ground), and the promise of my Lord is ever true’.”Matthew 18:9And if your eye ISHMAEL causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye MERCYthan to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.DAN same think and are in the same team 🤔 Hebrews 10:28-29 New International Version (NIV)28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace?Who is the unstable in suggestion huh 🤔 Who is Judy huh 🤔 Jeremiah 11Who is lioness of Judah roaring against on DEVIL’S 👿 side huh 🤔 Jeremiah 12User for them to hide testimony called secret power of the lawlessness.1 Peter 5:8Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a lioness of Judah roaring lion looking for someone to devour.Who is helping her keep roaring you are covered huh 🤔 That’s why must be destroyed this wicked county - Isaiah 13 - Judges 11 - Isaiah 48:13-16Damages they have cost is just not worthy to kill one person other wise Hod would say kill her on the spot.While HAGAR leads nations ASTREY - Revelation 18While Turkey 🇹🇷 defending the lie and prostitution AISHA - Isaiah 47Ezekiel 28Revelation 13:11 AMERICA - Ezekiel 32 huh 🤔 DAN - Isaiah 14 - Ezekiel 38

    Whats more, you CANNOT create exotic matter, even if it’s made up of negative mass. Energy and matter cannot be created or destroyed. You just have to harvest them in the blink of an eye while they snap in existence along with positive mass. Because those 2 positive and negative mass cancel each other out, it can only snap into existence together as a whole. So more negative mass you take to make the wormhole stable, the more positive mass sprouts into existence as well. Even if we somehow were able to stop the 2 matter from erasing each other, the amount of positive mass (equal to the amount of negative mass needed to keep the portal open) would crush you with tons of pressure when you try to step into the wormhole.

    I know this video was from a while ago but since time is a concept made by humans doesn’t that mean it technically doesn’t exist? As a concept is an idea not a fact.
