Perception at the Event Horizon


  1. -sounds a lot like what it feels like to go to a silly job everyday...a vast and dark vortex with no end in sight. (sigh)

    Have a great day!!

  2. See, the problem with this is that given the impossibility of experiencing a human first-person sense impression of the experience of 'falling into a black hole,' the proposition that 'falling into a black hole is like [x]' is nonsense. There is no experience of falling into a black hole. It is not that it is beyond the boundaries of human knowledge, it is that there is no such experience. Like Wittgenstein's 'what it would be like to be a dog.'
