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?

A black hole exists, A white hole exists, what are the chances of their material showing up in earth in the form of exotic material arriving with a meteorite?

It's really easy to make a wormhole! You just need a superconductive material, crystals, and a big honking circular ring.

Just a Theory: if a Planet Can Warp Space like that, But a Star can only Warp a small amount of space then the Wormhole can’t connect to the other side .. But if Planets and Stars work “together” like forming a Big ass Galaxy then it can connect us to the other side ... and that other side is another Galaxy not a Deferent Dimension.

Theoretically passing through a black hole pushes time through your body. However, if we were able to survive long enough to pass through the white hole pushing time faster out of us making us younger and younger until we are no longer a being. Either way we would still die right?

Does not exist...just sci fi
chris sonofpear1
@Simon Emeralds You mean inadvisable, yes. And I can respect that viewpoint. If it cannot be done without catastrophically violating the strong and weak energy conditions, among other things, then that may be for the best.
Simon Emeralds
chris sonofpear1 nope that was unevolved science...see i like the same Ideas you do...but the older i get the more i recognize the importance of balance and our universe is a role model with that...something that powerful like a wormhole would tear that balance apart, thats why i don‘t think its possible...
chris sonofpear1
@Simon Emeralds Yes, but so was believing things heavier than air could every be more than a few feet off the ground, way back when...
Simon Emeralds
chris sonofpear1 no, thats philosophy!

Suspension of disbelief is also an important cosmic element...

I will get it will there be an invisible tunnel between two portals...if it even happens then why would it be a short or a longer path.... where does this path between these two portal exist

@Fahim XD Probably not, no - but I am not fully sure of the definitions, yet. See also analytical continuation, Rindler, Kruskal and Riemannian coordinates, also.

Fahim XD Day ago
@chris sonofpear1 so it is not in our dimension or reality?
chris sonofpear1
Potentially in another 'space' altogether. Or 'new' space is created between the wormholes, that is not dependent on our reference frame - or coordinate system.

If worm holes are possible to make in the future there is no doubt that a terrorist force would attempt to make one on a planet to remove its atmosphere through diffusion into space.

Henk De Metsenaere
Kangroo 22 wait... you say that now? So you almost ‘lose’ the debate and then you are like it’s just a joke bruh. There was also no way to tell if you were sarcastic or not. And you even were a part of the debate.

Wormholes teleports you. They doesn’t exist. We can “create” one if you have something with negative mass that pushes things. That shit breaks time travel paradox, and we don’t have a fucking clue how scientists even thinks about that.

If i time traveled and created a time paradox i would tell all my paradox to make the pyramid now that would be a body building challenge for all my paradox and then make my own space ship that can hold all my paradox like the inside of the moon lol. Wink wink ill make history but let human beings wonder how and who made this then they land on the #### and a who paradox comes out and threat the whole world make the whole world government say nothing and we won't let you make a base on the moon maybe one only for science one 1 base tho lol hahahhahahahah.
