white hole

A hypothetical celestial object that releases matter (unlike a black hole, which absorbs matter). I have devoted my career to proving the existence of white holes.

The Schwarzschild white holes do not arise from a gravitational collapse but are built into the initial conditions of the universe.
Whereas the Kerr gravitational collapse solutions describe the exterior geometry of all actual gravitational collapse black holes, the interior geometry (which I was suggesting might be partially described by the Kerr vacuum solutions) is not in fact described by the Kerr vacuum solutions but is more accurately described by the Schwarzschild gravitational collapse solutions, where the infalling matter hits a spacelike singularity and is there crushed out of existence (with no white holes formed).
But whereas there are a variety of types of white holes that may be similar enough to the big bang singularity to warrant a causal argument from analogy, the sad fact is that there are no instances of these types (as far as current observational evidence suggests).
Suppose, then, that our reference class includes only these Schwarzschild white hole singularities and the big bang singularity.
For an observer emerging into one of these universe from the wormhole, the singularity will appear as a white hole singularity, a beginningpoint of curves and thus will possess the property K also possessed by the big bang singularity and the Schwarzschild white hole singularity.
But Reissner-Nordstrom white hole singularities are less analogous to the big bang singularity than the Schwarzschild white hole singularity since the Reissner-Nordstrom singularities are timelike singularities and the big bang an Schwarzschild singularities are spacelike singularities.
The increase of the entropy of the matter after big bang or white hole is only temporary; it is renewed through the cyclic transformation "matter--space--matter--space".
The sheltered Newbiggin marks have produced some nice fish, Richie Douglas taking a personal best cod of 12lb 6oz in a match winning bag of five for 19lb from the White Holes.
Other places that have produced are the Beacons, Church Point, White Holes, Cambois Rock edges and Newbiggin Promenade has flounders at high water.
As usual, the Newbiggin area proved productive and Peter Marshall won Newbiggin's midweek match from the White Holes with seven for 18-0-8, with the heaviest of 6-3-8 taken by Billy Robinson.
The winner Graham Turner, seven fish from The White Holes (19lb), second Jimmy Tuck, eight fish from Hauxley (15lb 10oz), and Paul Sample, third with six fish from Amble (13lb 4oz), which included the highest single fish of 5lb 6oz.
The winner was Peter Marshall with (18lb 1/2 oz) from The White Holes, second Billy Robinson (16lb), which included the highest single fish of 6lb 3 1/2 oz from The Beacons, and third Tony Taylor (14lb) from the bottom of the cliffs.
Ritchie Douglas had a nice bag of four cod for 13-6-0, his best 6-2-0, from the White Holes at Newbiggin in Bedlington Buccaneers' match.
Numerous cod averaging 2lb have been taken mainly on ragworm and lugworm from Cresswell Carrs, the Beacons, the bottom of the cliffs and the white holes.
