There may be objects in our Universe that predate the Big Bang. And if we can somehow find a way to distinguish them from primordial black holes, we may yet be able to observe these most ancient of objects.
Separate work has suggested that advanced civilizations might be able to live inside the event horizon of a blackhole. Combining the work suggests that advanced civilizations would be able to survive from a precrunch universe to another post-crunch universe.
Technology Review has coverage
We discuss whether black holes could persist in a universe which recollapses and then bounces into a new expansion phase. Whether the bounce is of classical or quantum gravitational origin, such cosmological models are of great current interest. In particular, we investigate the mass range in which black holes might survive a bounce and ways of diff erentiating observationally between black holes formed just after and just before the last bounce. We also discuss the consequences of the universe going through a sequence of dimensional changes as it passes through a bounce.

You know." Skipper said. "Science is a wonderful thing. It gives us Toasters and TVs and artificial flavors."
"Yum." Rico said.
"But Mad science!" Skipper shouted. "That just ends with Dicey super weapons, freakish creatures and artificial flavors."
