Hi, Roxy... interesting thread you've started. You stated: "... I do appreciate any and all input in the discussion of these issues as it's helpful to kick around ideas in arriving at an answer."
So let me begin from your own opening here -
I'm going to pose a new scientific thought regarding black holes. I just don't buy the current notion that they are the end all to end all. That everything gets sucked in and destroyed never to reappear. The destruction of matter in the most final sense.
That's just nonsense.
Perhaps not exactly germane to the subject at hand, but I do feel it's important to know that any scientific theories must have a semblance of truth to them, i.e. a scientist who may postulate this theory of yours to his/her colleagues must have a conclusion to the theory. Leaving any theory open-ended is not much of a theory, per se, but more of an idea or even story of sorts. When science says blah, blah, blah... it is the general agreement of the community of scientists that propose the theory.
When 'they' postulate that everything gets sucked in and destroyed within the black hole, that is simply there is no evidence beyond this theory presently. I'm sure there are at least a handful of scientists that have some notion of what you've brought forth, but without that all-important word, 'evidence', there is no science.
But taking this one step further... all science begins with an idea... usually with an idea that has at least a fair amount of credibility to it. Once the idea is discussed with some like-minded cohorts, the idea becomes a test that seeks an answer.
If I'm understanding you correctly, Roxy, you are saying that when light, matter and the energy they produce enter into a black hole there is a transformation into invisible wave (tiny wave particles) which go out into the vastness of space to join other wave particles which is the reason for the expansion of the universe..?
You visualize the infinite space that contains all matter as a sea of these wave particles is what I'm understanding. I like that. But I do have a problem with 'seeing' this cycle of light,matter and energy (LME) being 'reduced' to wave particles. If this is indeed what is occurring, wouldn't these wave particles eventually be the building blocks of all LME to resume to process which you postulate?
All matter had to have come from some other matter in some point in time, wouldn't it? Perhaps not immediately in our concept, but as the black hole consumes this LME and 'digests' it (them) it would return this same array of building blocks, even in minute, tiny wave particles, back into the universe.
If all LME is built around these wave particles, as I believe you are suggesting, then when they enter into a black hole and are returned into the same space from which it came, the process would seem to me to be self-creative and would not allow for expansion any further than what we currently know.
Your theory seems to suggest to me that LME is destroyed only to return as wave particles that add to the 'eternal sea' of dark space in an expansion that may or may not go on indefinitely. But how does 'new' LME come about if not from the old recycled LME, to put it simply?
Thx, roxy... I hope I made myself clear.
