Could the beginning of the universe be the other side of a black hole?

Not the beginning of the universe under the Big Bang theory. The

constituent matter of our universe represents a lot more mass than

any one Black Hole could contain. However, in a "closed universe",

all mass would eventually re-contract into a single location. The

presence of a universe-worth of mass could conceivably trigger a

process by which the Big Bang would occur again, to spawn yet

another universe. Proponents of "alternate dimensions" of existence

have suggested that the "death" of one dimension's universe might

funnel matter interdimensionally to form the precursor of another

dimension's universe. But this is, of course, a hypothesis

unsupported by any known physical laws.
