The universe as a five-dimensional black hole

We show the geometrical equivalence of two five-dimensional metrics, one describing a cosmology which smoothly embeds the standard Friedmann-Robertson-Walker-Lemaître models, and another describing an object which topologically is a black hole. The solutions can be interpreted using either membrane or induced-matter theory. We outline the main physics, wherein the horizon of the black hole is connected to a big bounce in the cosmology, which may in turn be connected to a phase change in the vacuum.
