Dissapates Into What?

What then does the energy dissapate into? One of my other....sources, said that energy in its self would pass harmless through the black hole, but there can be no energy without a mass, my theory is, that when the object of mass, with energy, like light, hits the disc, when the object adds to the mass of the black hole, then perhaps the energy is transmuted from kinetic, radial, thermal, into some form of potential energy within the object that added to the black hole, thus not violating the mass/energy convertion law, but that still leaves the question of heat energy, what happens to the heat energy that is created by a mass traveling 98% of the speed of light? 10% of the resting energy of an object is lost as thermal energy, could that acctually escape a black hole? Even then, where does the thermal energy go? Does the matter cool back down, recovering its resting energy back as potential energy? If so, then why do some astronomers say energy is acctually dissapearing from volumes of space, something I read in Scientific America May, 1999.
