George Jiri Opletal, knowing that tribology is a slippery subject, said
"What if?" to Dave Hamilton

DH> About a message of George Jiri Opletal to Dave Hamilton:

DH> DH> > What final collapse?

DH> GJO> Assuming the universe is closed meaning that there is enough energy
DH> GJO> density  in the universe which causes spacetime to close itself
off
DH> GJO> (like the region  inside the event horizon in a blackhole), then
the
DH> GJO> universe in the future  stops its expansion and recollapses into
a
DH> GJO> singularity.  Thats the final  collapse I was referring too.

DH> Yes, but on what basis do you make that assumption?
GJO>
GJO> Well, there are a two possibilities in the future.  The future
GJO> expands  forever or recollapses and this depends on the average energy
GJO> density of the  universe.  Its merely an assumption in Tipler's theory,
GJO> if you can prove the  univers to be open than his hypothesis is wrong.

Logic error: operator halted.

We need "prove" nothing. Tipler makes the claim, let him supply
the evidence (i.e., "prove" in your  strangled vernacular).

Oh, BTW, where's the 100 kilobucks you owe me?
