I've never seen one before, no one has, but I'm guessing it's a white hole.

In a negative universe it would be called a white hole!

If the forum is going all 'Open University' at the moment, at least give us chance to put on a bloody awful jumper, grow a man sized beard and get some pens...... :lol:

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. A black hole sucks time and matter out of the Universe; a white hole returns it.

Except a black hole doesn't suck time and matter out of the Universe, it merely compresses it into an infinitesimal point. A black hole is formed when an object of large mass becomes unstable (usually a massive star at the end of its life) and collapses in on itself, and is sustained with more matter that is attracted by the large gravitational pull exerted by this large mass.

It follows that a "white hole" is in fact formed when a object of very large negative (or very small negative, depending on your viewpoint) mass (not impossible according to current laws of physics) becomes unstable, possibly because the other major forces of the Universe are no longer enough to hold it together, at which point the components which overcome the other major forces are repelled from each other (as gravity is directly proportional to mass, a negative mass means negative gravity). This can again include time, as the initial object of large negative mass repels time in the same way that a black hole attracts it.

In theory.

So that thing's spewing time, back into the universe?

No, it's merely redistributing it. Instead of packing it all in one spot, it's moving it all away from one spot.
