WOW. That theory makes a lot of sense :bugeye: Two things though; 1) won't the blackhole have to be a WHITEhole in order to explain the expansion of the universe? (This isn't really a theory-buster; it's just a suggested improvement.) 3) Doesn't this violate the concept of non-absolute time as put forward by the theory of relativity? In this blackhole-universe, there are no worldlines for any of the particles... P.S: I don't see why this doesn't explain free will and awareness of time; they can fit easily into your theory.
