    New Theory of Black Holes

    Actually my theory, I think

    Are black holes really black?

    No, we cant see them physically because they're so heavy for their size they sink below the visible horizon. Put a bowling ball on a mattress and it sinks down but you can still see the upper part of the ball. But if the ball is heavy enough it will sink down below the horizontal (visible horizon) of the mattress.

    But as you approach the ball you can begin to see it because you're now on the curvature of space created by the ball or black hole. Think of a ship caught in a whirlpool, as the ship approaches the center passengers can look down and see the "black hole". Sound reasonable?

    No. They emit Hawking radiation.

    Anything else?

    The event horizon discontinuity exists for any observer O in normal space, no matter how little he is above said event horizon.

    What is wrong with your analogy is that in it the bowling ball should actually have sunk an infinite amount into the matress. The depth of the hole asymtotically approaches infinity as you apprach the Schwarzschild radius

    Now, using the schwarzschild metric we will conduct the following gedankenexperiment:

    Sitting a distance R from the center of a schwarzschild black hole (non-rotating, stationary in our frame of reference) we fire a beam of light directly away from the center of the black hole. Our metric says that

    ds^2 = -c^2(1 - 2GM/(c^2r))dt^2 + (1 - 2GM/(c^2r))^-1dr^2 + r^2domega^2

    since the angular displacement is 0 (this is a radial climb) the final term can be ignored. since we are using light, the path element ds is 0.

    So, c^2Adt^2 = A^-1dr^2 (A being the messy term involving G above)

    so, c*sqrt(A)dt = sqrt(1/A)dr
    cdt = dr/A

    rewriting slightly we get that the coordinate time for a climb from R>= 2GM/c^2 (the schwarzschild radius/event horizon) to Rf is:

    (Rf - R)/c + (2GM/c^3) * INT(1/r) where INT is the definite integral of the expression from (R - 2GM/c^2) to (Rf-2GM/c^2), which equals:

    (Rf - R)/c + (2GM/c^3) * ln((Rf-2GM/c^2)/(R - 2GM/c^2))

    the closer our original position R gets to 2GM/c^2 the larger the number we're taking the logarithm of gets, so the larger the logarithm gets. Therefore, any beam of light travelling upward from the event horizon R = 2GM/c^2 takes an infinite amount of coordinate time to travel any finite distance, so we can see that the light never gets to any observer, no matter how close they are to the event horizon. (There's one more thing to prove here, namely that the proper time tau for an observer sitting still at any point outside the event horizon does not equal zero for finite coordinate time, but that's enough basic GR for now)

    If we apply your analogy to current ideas of how a black hole works, your bowling ball will simply drop through the mattress, creating a hole in the duvet of space time.

    Which is pretty much exactly what KH is saying, without trying to flaunt my intelligence to an audience that doesn't give a ****.

    I'd like to point out that I went on to explain what the Schwarzschild radius was. With a little bit of patience you would have seen that. My followup post simply took a bit of time to write as I had to integrate a simple, though not tivial expression after rewriting.

    I'm bloody tired of the neo-racism in astronomy. Why aren't there white holes? White dwarves, sure, small insignificant things. But something huge, powerfull, sure, it needs to be named "black" something. Why not Tyrone, or Darnell, while they're at it? Hmmpuh.

    No, we cant see them physically because they're so heavy for their size they sink below the visible horizon.

But if the ball is heavy enough it will sink down below the horizontal (visible horizon) of the mattress.

    But as you approach the ball you can begin to see it because you're now on the curvature of space created by the ball or black hole. Think of a ship caught in a whirlpool, as the ship approaches the center passengers can look down and see the "black hole". Sound reasonable?

    It's not a bad thought. The problem is that the 'ball on a mattress' analogy is just an analogy. You're taking properties of the analogy and attempting to use them to say something about the original problem. It's similar to a strawman argument.

    I'm not sure what happens to space very near a black hole. I don't think anybody can know at present, because big G is almost certainly an approximation of something far more complicated, and yet unknown.

    I'm glad that KH knows one thing well. Otherwise he'd have no basis whatsoever to criticize people. What would he be like if he studied human relations instead? Do you think he'd sound intelligent enuff in that case to know better than insult an audience filled with people he does not know. Somehow I doubt it.
