When we speak about the universe, planets
and stars, we refer to what we perceive, to what we see and measure.
This is only one face of energy: the unstable and disordered energy. Energy can pass from
one state: ordered, stable and uniform, to another state: disordered, unstable and chaotic.
This is the energy cycle. Our universe and us belong to the second state
of energy, the disordered one. The stable energy is not measurable because
it does not embrace the dimensions of space and time. Its presence is owing to gravity.
On the other side, unstable energy can be measured thanks to the presence of the dimensions
of space and time. This is why talking about finite and infinite
makes sense only if we look at the unstable form of energy. If we want to make a simple comparison, we
can close our eyes. Trying to measure what we see is not possible. That represents the stable energy. When we open our eyes, a quantifiable world appears; this constitutes the unstable
energy. When a star is captured by a black hole, it loses the perception of space and time to become stable energy. Hence, from our point
of view, the space-time point of view, we can consider the black hole as infinite. But, from the other point of view, imagining to be inside the black hole, we would simply
say that energy evolves from a perfect to an imperfect state cyclically. Mind you, us and our universe are the imperfect
ones! But there is a consolation, one day we’ll become perfect again.
