Boundaries between cyclic universes

This morning my 6 year old son asked me 2 questions, seemingly unrelated.
  1. Why does space never end
  2. What is a black hole
Being familiar with only very basic and somewhat incorrect quantum theory with extensive patches of unknowns in my understanding, I explained as best I could (with some bad assumptions that would get me shot in any reputable university) - space never ends because its boundaries are defined by dimensions higher than the 3rd - in effect, moving through space in a loop, with a cyclic 4th dimension. Much like traveling around the surface of the earth (2 dimensions) will end up moving in circles because the earth exists in 3 dimensions (cyclic 3rd dimension). And a black hole is the area that light fails to escape where the gravitational pull of a singularity is greater than the speed of light. This led on to explaining a singularity - a single point in space (almost no volume) with an enormous mass.

Feel free to shoot now - the assumptions and deductions are about to begin.

The mass of a singularity is so great that time is bent back on itself in a tiny area - creating a cyclic time-based entity. So the singularity of 1 universe's black hole IS a universe. Any matter falling into the singularity would have enormous gravitational forces applied to it. Possibly enough to collapse the energy of the matter? In effect, the 3 atomic forces (strong nuclear, weak nuclear and electro magnetic forces) would be overcome by a huge gravitional force. If an atom were to be exposed to sufficient gravitional force (huge mass, tiny volume), could the atom be collapsed? The electrons merged with the nucleus (protons & neutrons), surely the energy would be reduced and in effect undergo a universe jump - from 1 universe to another parallel one.
 The subatomic particles, having had energy reduced / cancelled would become matter in the universe defined by the singularity.

What a great concept to come up with, right? Well, it's actually a concept thats been floating around for a bit - After some research, I eventually came across an interesting blog post - which discusses the endless universe and these connections

 Well hopefully someone who has a better understanding could clarify: could it be possible that singularities are the bridge into the parallel universes, through the collapsing of energy? How would this affect the growth of the universe within the singularity, and the increase in mass of the universe? The "Big Bang" event of a universe would effectively be point in time at which sufficient matter in 1 universe has enough gravity to cause a collapse, thus creating the singularity (and the universe). It would also address the "Big Crush" theory, where sufficient energy is collapsed into the singularity so that the singularity explodes, releasing matter (while on the universe, matter collects together and forms a singularity that "swallows the universe")...

I'll post an update when I understand the quantum mechanics of it a bit better, check back in 10 to 15 years.
