The Pixie Dust Theory of Black Holes©
black hole is a theoretical object possessing a gravitational field so
powerful that no matter (stuff) or radiation (including light) that has
entered the region can escape. Light cannot excape the
gravitational influence of a black hole making a black hole virtually
invisible except for detecting the warp in space where the hole is
located. Even though these holes are 'a hole' and are also invisible
these are not reasons to fail to apply for federal funding.
The black hole cosmology reminds me of Christoper Columbus' crew fearing falling off the edge of the earth....
"Ignorance hides behind many equations"
has no mass as only massless objects can attain light speed (Einstein
interpreted). Therefore light is not subject (directly) to any
gravitational influence but appears to be affected as it (light) flows
through the warp in space created by an object having mass.
an object approaches light speed its mass begins to expand
exponentially (Einstein) into infinity and, as a result, it never
attains 'C' or light speed ('c'eleritas, the Latin word meaning speed).
This conclusion has only been theorized using mathematics. Nevertheless,
If we ever hope to attain light speed in a space craft then we need to
find the oversight (if any) in Einstein's Theory of General
Relativity (i.e. "Time goes slower when you are with your relatives").
The 'apparent mass' (i'll explain the 'apparent part later) of a black hole is so great
the fabric of space is curved back on to itself and the path of light
gets snared by the black hole due to the curvature and warp of space.
The escape velocity, it is hypothesized, for leaving a black hole
exceeds the speed of light. Einstein established that the speed of
light was the speed limit in the unverse so, it seems that, once you
enter into the event horizon (threshold) of a black hole there is no
escape. (This is the point where everyone holds up a tarp with a
bowling ball in it and applies for a grant, end of story...)
it seems has answered the question, "Why does the gravity of an object
warp space"? I think that I know why... An object warps space
because objects do not 'occupy space' they 'displace space' (Displacement Theory of Gravity © ).
Displacement Theory of Gravity accounts for why a black hole 'warps'
space around it. Not only is space warped by black holes but also by
every object that has mass. The warp is just more pronounced with
a black hole. Even the Earth has an 'event horizon'; that location
(distance) in space where an orbiting object begins to fall, more
pronouncedly, under the influence of the Earth's gravity.
leads me to a related and important point regarding the 'event horizon'
(threshold) of a Black Hole. The 'zone' called an event horizon is
actually (according to the Displacement Theory of Gravity ©
) ... IS, in all probability, the relative location where two distinct
gravitational fields meet. One gravitational field is beyond
(within) the event horizon and the second gravitational field is
(begins) just outside of the influence of the event horizon. The reason
for this is that the space around (surrounding) an object is stretched
by the presence of that object displacing space and the space between
objects in space is compressed. Thus there are two gravitational
1) Inside the object's 'event horizon' (eg. the Earth;s surface) and
Beyond the 'event horizon' of any close large objects, and to be
otherwise subject to the laws of inertial movement and free floating in
space. In other words, space is stretched around any object
having mass (ANY object) and its resulting gravitational pull is felt
most powerfully on the surface of that object; the space between
objects is compressed and outside of the event horizon of that object
the compressed space produces a gravitational force that is subtly
repelling rather than attracting.
Oh yes... back to the 'apparent mass' of a black hole as mentioned above.
Einstein is correct about an object's mass expanding infinitely as it
approaches the speed of light then it seems that a 'Black Hole'
(misnomer) could very well be a (relative) 'handful' of matter
traveling at (just at) sub-light speed and the 'matter' part has
expanded infinitely to create the phenomenon that we call a Black Hole.
this is the case then nobody ever has to worry about being sucked into
a black hole any more than they need to worry about falling into the
center of the Earth.
If my Displacement Theory of Gravity� is correct and
if a black hole is actually a handful of matter travelling just below
light speed (expanded infinitely) then the actual mass of a black hole
will be able to be determined by Einstein's "E=MC�" (how
trite!!!). One simply divides the energy ("E") radiating from a
black hole ("0", nada, none, zip, ain't none, or at best is a mere
trickle) by C� to arrive at M or actual stationary mass . So,
according to this approach a black hole has no (negligible) stationary
mass but only velocity mass. This is because a black hole is composed
of particles of matter that are being swept along by light and the
minute (infinitesimal) mass of these particles is in the process of
attaining infinite velocity mass. The Laws of Inertia
(Galileo and Newton) determine that a black hole will continue
travelling at the velocity that caused the infinite expansion unless
and until it (black hole) is acted upon by an external influence.
In the meantime you have an object of seeming enormous mass travelling
at nearly the speed of light with no apparent force to either stop it
or slow it down except for, possibly, yet another black hole. Two
black holes merging is an unlikely event considering our understanding
of 'event horizons'... they will always be approaching but never really
meet, because the surrounding space is so powerfully compressed it
would appear, to a distant observer, that both black holes have
stopped, in relationship to one another. They can only ever be 'joined'
like Siamese Twins.
When and if the velocity of a black hole ceases then all that is left is pixie dust.
