Living In The Einstein - Rosen Bridge
The Einstein-Rosen Bridge is a theoretical phenomenon in the physics of outer space which posits a potential link between two separate points in space and time. It occurs when two blackholes join in a marriage of destruction and creation. When the blackholes are joined they create a traversable connection that joins one point to another, a potential liminal zone and a flattening of the traditional laws of space and time.
In brain scans of people effected by trauma and ptsd, black zones of absence are visible. Deep recesses were activity has been silenced by history, voids of cognition that neuron’s can no longer illuminate. These zones are analogous to black holes, they are potential portals to an unknown universe of possibilities, as a the stars of nebulas are similar to the neutrons of the brain.
This zone has many potentials, it exists as a link between disparate places, it establishes new frontiers in the conventions of natural physics, but most importantly it suggests a new home for things which do not belong in our acceptable universe.
An act of trauma created this bridge, in the slow dying collapse of two stars they joined together to create future for themselves in partnership. A fold in the fabric of space and time that allowed a new domestic space to emerge. As travellers on the bridge, we can hope to reflect some of their unique qualities onto our journey, embody their characteristics in the hope that it might transfer onto us.
Celestial bodies are only visible once the light that illuminates them past to us, in time they are clearer, viewable with the perspective of history. Massive ruptures of stars collapsing, so seismic in their moment are viewable and the impact they have on us is barely possible to comprehend. So too is trauma, it acts on us like an unseen force and defines the solid ground beneath us.
