I have a short comment for you truly.
In the paragraph explaining why black holes are formed:

Imagine, again, that you have a rectangular piece of elastic. then, put your fist
through, eventually the kenetic energy of your fist will break through the elastic. It
is a simple analogy but apt to this theory. This is how black holes i believe are
formed pretty much from the most basic equation in physics K.E=1/2mv^2

First and foremost, you cannot use Newtonian mechanics to calculate the energy derived from a black hole. The reason being is that Newtonian Mechanics fails in calculating energy at vast speeds. Since passed the black hole, light is gravitationaly captured, then as the black hole contracts to or passed swarzchild`s radius, Newtons equations differ drastically from Einsteins. Secondly, black holes are formed when mass is concentrated within a spherical region of a star, and when its mass divided by its radius exceed a critical value, it warps space tremendously that even light cannot escape. Another thing, anti-particles are created in a black due to high speed collisions with other particles. And regarding passing this boundary point in a black hole, well, any object, even light, will be torn to shreads as it enter the hole. Its concept called tidal gravity.

If you have any questions, let me know!
