    Lol, this info is outdated. It was a cute theory back in the days. It's deceptive in paper, if you suppose everything to support the theory, but there are no black holes in actual universe. If there is at least one, please give the location.

      you can't see a black hole. so, that would be impossible. all you can see is the light refracting around one from the immense gravity, and stars don't usually line up all nicely and let us see a black hole at the moment of its birth. also, black holes are tiny compared to their stars, a black hole with the mass of the earth would be the size of a peanut, so infinitely tiny, pitch black objects moving at high speed? kinda hard to spot in ideal conditions, forget at the exact moment of creation.

    black holes are where angels travel through from faster than the speed of light from one location of the universe to another. They receive commands from God who is transcendent and then travel back to Earth through the black holes to carry out the commands God has given them. The entire universe all the way up to Gods Throne have trillions and trillions and trillions of angels all in rows worshipping God for billions of years continuously.

    Seeing men and women get so excited over science used to be something to poke fun at for me when I was younger, in school and wanted to fit in. You couldn’t fathom how much I regret not being one of those people now. Now I see a majority of a younger generation just as excited, but they aren’t looking at the universe, nature or history, they are counting little blue thumbs, red hearts and ‘retweets’. None of those things can change the world for the better. I missed the boat - the last boat, and I’ll always regret it. I hope Brian (and anyone else alive with the same knowledge and enthusiasm) live for a very, very long time.

    Cox alludes to the more interesting questions: 1) what does the event horizon look like from the inside? 2) What does the matter look like inside? Is it a point in the middle as Cox suggests? + My conjecture you ask? I say the inside of a black hole looks like our universe, because we are in fact, inside a black hole ourselves. Presuming Big-Bang correct (it's not, but if it were...) and all the mass started at a point, that mass could never escape its own black-hole-ness (Schwarzschild). And if our universe never escaped, we are in a black-hole ourselves.

    Understand that a black hole is not really a ‘hole’ it’s an infinitely dense point/mass of unbelievably powerful gravity that’s surround by a black sphere. The circumference of the sphere is basically the distance from the centre point of the black hole that no ‘matter’ ‘gas’ ‘light’ etc can escape from.
    When considering a super massive black hole, you’re considering a point of gravity that has been fed over the course of many billions of years, which has caused growth of gravity point, it’s strength and hence forth it’s event horizon.
    My theory is that when supermassive blackholes continue to grow in strength, they’ll eventually consume whole galaxies, other supermassive black holes and their galaxies, so on and so forth over the course of billions, if not trillions of years.. and then at a time again, everything that is in the universe will be condensed into a singular point before reaching critical mass and woaaaahhhh Big Bang.

      Excuse my ignorance of being able to fathom the universe....
      I always thought a Black Hole was a way to describe an immense object crunched so hard together that there is no void between particles. Just a soup of high energy particles that are very close together, unlike normal matter that is mostly empty space between the nucleus and the electrons. This unbelievably crunched soup of particles is so dense that it is unbelievably heavy compared to normal matter. This heavy and dense mass soup pushes so hard against the space/time fabric of the universe that it bends it.
      It bends it so hard that it is like an old fashioned deep water well in the middle of a wheat field. That’s why it is called a Black Hole, like a deep hole in the ground.

      Sadly they are NOT 'Facts that have been verified by scientific analytic testing' they are pseudo scientific claims, that have been refuted, debunked and rebuffed by most of the worlds leading archeologists. There have even been whistleblowers from with in Osmanagich's own team that have accused him of falsifying results, planting finds and worst of all destroying real archeology because it doesn't fit with in his own pet theories.

  • Jack Daniel
    Jack Daniel 21 day ago +1

    This is the classical view of black holes that is not the only one out there that is entirely possible (in fact, "infinitely dense points" aka singularities aren't thought to be real by physicists, they're more likely only possible on paper when you run the math... it's more likely there is a finite size due to some forces assuming this line of thinking about black holes is remotely correct at all). For example, it's been (validly) proposed that black holes could actually be "fuzzballs" made of strings (predicted by the string theory) - essentially being to neutron stars what neutron stars are to regular stars (their "squashed down to the next level" versions). And - of course - there are other candidate theories. Shit's fascinating. A lot's been said in Quanta Magazine and PBS Space Time about it (also, simply, Wikipedia).
