      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.

    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).

    Whatever was wrong with the fairy tale of the Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf?
    I suppose "Black Hole" - from which nothing can escape, not even the light - ooooh, sounds more dangerous, more appealing to today's storytellers and is more adapted to the age of science fiction. 🙄
    One big difference is: today's stories are told to grown ups as if being 100% true. What's similar is that the stories can't be proven to an ordinary person, who's not a storyteller. 😲
    Furthemore no one i sable to verify that the theories are correct in "the real world". Thus they are more like...well...fairy tales. 🙈
    I find it absolutely amazing and bizarre that these storytellers, a.k.a. physicists, on one hand believe in so called "dark matter"* (, the more or less unknown, which is said to constitute about 80% (?) of the "visual Universe" and on the other hand are 100% sure of the existence of "black holes", what they are and how they function!
    Take for instance the claim about "the singularity", which is supposed to be the center of the collapse of big stars (but not "white dwarves"?) (?). Is it a coincidence that the same word is used for the supposed time when the robots will become more intelligent than humans (in 2030?)
    (, "I. J. Good's "intelligence explosion" model predicts that a future superintelligence will trigger a singularity."
    "Emeritus professor of computer science at San Diego State University and science fiction author Vernor Vinge said in his 1993 essay The Coming Technological Singularity that this would signal the end of the human era, as the new superintelligence would continue to upgrade itself and would advance technologically at an incomprehensible rate.")?
    I shouldn't think so. The technological "singularity" very much sounds like the dystophia of a "Black Hole" (, "A singularity in solutions of the Einstein field equations is one of two things:
    a situation where matter is forced to be compressed to a point (a space-like singularity)
    a situation where certain light rays come from a region with infinite curvature (a time-like singularity)").
    I. e. fake news and rubbish! Or a mischiveous fairy tale for grown ups.
    By the way, I tend to find the story of the naked emperor, exposed in all of his "glory", by a child, quite amusing. Believe me, there are plenty of naked emperors in today's world! Only a single one of them would be more than enough, right?
    People have to take back the control over true knowledge and present the storytellers for whom they are!
    (*=of course not to be confused with "dark energy": "an unknown form of energy which is hypothesized to permeate all of space",

    Imagine listening to a child explain how babies are made. They think they are right, and it sounds amazing but it is total bullshit. That's what this is. Total bullshit. Nothing to stop the collapse? The weakest molecular force one day overpowers rock and metal and unimaginable heat in the form of explosive vibrating atoms and just squeezes a star into this thing that conveniently nobody has ever seen. But this guy knows everything about them. Some of these guys still think if you go into one it spits you out the other side of the universe. And believing this makes you smarter than everyone else.
