Are Black Holes Really Holes? 

People seem fascinated with black holes and the mystery surrounding them. The questions started getting popular when Stephen Hawking suggested that black holes disappear due to what became known as Hawking radiation

Later Stephen Hawking wrote about some more crazy ideas in his book, The Universe In A Nutshell including the idea of spaghettification. Hawking himself admitted that his Hawking radiation idea was mostly non-existent but it made for a lot of interest in his books and in science fiction books.

I will attempt to give you a brief history of Black holes that explains exactly what black holes are and how they work. Hawking radiation and spaghetti aren’t involved. Here are some recent posts that try to capture your attention by the absurdity of the titles.

For instance; “Are we inside a black hole?”, “What would happen if you fell into a black hole?” or “What would someone watching see as you fell into a black hole?”

These and other posts try to grab your time and attention to sell you something or to show you ads that pay them money.

Rest assured that the closest black holes to Earth are 53 million light-years away so we would never get to see one or fall into a black hole. 

How Does a Black Hole Happen  

Black holes happen when a massive star that is at least more than 20 times bigger than our sun runs out of fuel. 

The star’s fusion reaction will fuse hydrogen to helium, to carbon to oxygen and silicon all the way to iron. When the core of the star is iron it has run out of fusion power. 

Different layers of fusion in a massive star

The star will then go into a supernova reaction when it exhausts its fuel. Nuclear fusion was keeping the middle layers and surface matter of the star away from the massive gravity of the iron core. 

When the star’s fusion reaction stops the star collapses by its massive gravity. This is like an implosion and when the matter lands onto the iron core a huge explosion occurs.

This supernova explosion sends much of the star's outer matter into space. Often these explosions last for weeks as they create atoms heavier than iron.

During the supernova explosion, the iron core also collapses under its own weight. Thus, there is a massive amount of energy forced into the center of the star.

Two forces act as one supermassive force that creates a black hole. First, the supernova explosion has an equal and opposite force into the collapsing core of the star. 

This makes the collapse of the core even more powerful than the supernova explosion. The additive force of the explosion and gravity together sends a powerful force towards the center of the star.

What is a Black Hole 

The supernova explosion and imploding force of gravity into the core is what creates a black hole! But, what is a black hole

Supermassive stars formed in the early universe easily because of the abundance of newly created gases of hydrogen and helium, while only a few other stars existed.

When these massive stars went supernova they created many black holes into the fabric of space. 

Massive gravity around these holes attracted more matter and stars formed around these black holes creating galaxies. 

The light from these early stars and galaxies are still detected by astronomers. But, the light from many stars and galaxies are so dim that most of these stars don’t exist anymore. 

What has happened to the early stars and the early matter of the universe? We seem to have less than 5% of the total matter left. 

Dark matter accounts for 85% and dark energy 10% according to Wikipedia.

To me, it seems like black holes have something to do with dark matter. I think the early black holes have devoured early stars and galaxies leaving us with only 5%. 

Remember that many of the stars that we see in the sky don’t exist anymore. Okay, where is the missing matter we call dark matter?

I have been writing about dark matter for many years and suggesting that the missing matter is in a different dimension. 

Black holes are energy portals into higher-level dimensions

The scientific community seems to have blind folders since they can’t see the obvious that black holes move matter into another energy level. 

Black Holes are Holes into another Dimension 

A black hole is actually a hole into the fabric of space and into another energy level of the universe. 

Space is a thing (fabric) that contains the observable universe together in a container. The boundary of this container is the entrance into another dimension. 

Our universe is made up of many dimensions or energy levels. Each level has a certain frequency level and if that energy level is exceeded it enters into the next higher level. 

The entrance into other levels happens inside black holes. The initial moment that a star goes supernova it creates a rip or cracks into the boundary that separates these levels.

The bigger the supernova reaction is, then the bigger the “hole” into the next dimension. 

When the matter is attracted into black holes it will enter a phase transition portal that moves the matter into a higher energy state.

We are familiar with phase transitions when ice turns to water or water turns into a gas. High energy phase transitions also exist. 

For instance, during the big bang energy cooled down and changed from plasma to matter. 

The plasma state of matter is the most common type of matter in the universe because stars consist of plasma matter. 

Black Holes and Gravity 

Have you wondered why black holes have such a massive gravity field that an entire galaxy will rotate around a single black hole?

The massive star that created a black hole had a lot of gravity because of the enormous mass of the matter in the star.

When a star goes supernova almost half of the star’s mass is blown away into space.


That means that the mass and therefore the gravity of the black hole should be much less than what the star’s mass was.

Yet a black hole has enough gravity to be the center of an entire galaxy. Where did the extra gravity come from?

This is the area where most people have no idea. The black hole is much smaller than the original star and it should have a much smaller force of gravity. 

However, the force of gravity is compacted into a much smaller area than what the star had. 

That means that you can get close to a black hole to experience the same force per square meter that the star had at millions of miles away.

Since the size of the black hole is so small it doesn't attract matter easily into the small opening or event horizon.

If the matter is simply attracted to the gravity of black holes it would gain enough mass to create a fusion reaction and turn back into a star. Right?

But since that doesn’t happen the matter must go somewhere else.

So, we must explore other ways that would create a strong enough gravitational field to support a massive galaxy. 

Universe’s Gravity 

The only long-range force in the universe is gravity. The gravitational force of our sun is enough to hold all the planets in orbit.

I am suggesting that the universe as a whole has a certain amount of gravity. Yet the observable universe only has 5% of the matter and therefore, a small force of gravity.

Our dimension seems to have 10% dark energy but this energy which is gravitational force is not to be found in our area of the universe.

Yet, we can see this gravitational force acting on our 5% of matter. Where does this dark energy come from?

The extra force of gravity must come from inside black holes and another dimension.  Matter that falls into black holes leaves our area or dimension and goes into a higher-level dimension. 

Scientists say there is about 85% dark matter. Where is that matter unless in another dimension.  

So the gravitational force of that dimension would be much more than in our 5% matter dimension. 

I believe that this gravitational force leaks out into our dimension from the millions of black holes. 

It would be this energy that has been attracting our matter and our dimension as it accelerates towards the larger dimension. 

Now back to black holes. The reason why black holes don’t turn on a fusion reaction and become stars again is that black holes don’t contain a large amount of matter.

Black holes are really just phase-transition stations that send matter into another dimension. These holes are one-way portals and we can’t see into other dimensions. 

It’s not that light can’t escape past the event horizon because the gravity is so strong. It’s that the phase transition is a one-way portal that does not allow anything to come back out.

The gravity that leaks out of black holes comes from the dimension that has 85% of the matter in the universe. Gravity is a long-range non-physical force that gets past the phase transition.

The amazing power of gravity creates black holes and moves our universe into expansion. What happens eventually is another story that involves more dimensions.
