of course the universe is expanding right now, and scientists say even accelerating instead of slowing down, so it seems, for now, the big crunch is malarky at best. pretend that isn't the case though, okay?
good. you see, if that theory, eventual crunch, is correct. that means we are right now inside a black hole. inside a black hole time and space flip flop and do all kinds of crazy things, that is if they even really exist inside a singularity. this will either make your nerdy little mind happy that such a theory exists, or you'll hate me eternally. there is no middle ground in a black hole.
