The more is that the distant observer, namely the rest of the universe, never sees the mass crossing the event horizon. To the distant observer it all piles up at the horizon.

Furthermore, even if the universe could detect gravity from within the event horizon, and even if all the mass got converted to energy, the gravity would be the same in accordance with General Relativity.

According to the standard model, particles get mass when the Higgs field symmetry is broken. If so, then compressing the mass, it must go through a brown dwarf stage, and then a neutron stage, would raise the energy of the local system above the energy of the Higgs particle- which was thought to be at 80GEV, but was not found up to 115GEV at CERN. Somebody on this forum claims it's 1TEV, but I doubt if his credentials match those of CERN.

BTW, the Higgs particle as far as I know is an assumption, or a hypothesis. I do not know of a Higgs theory to go with it. You would think that one could be derived from GUT theory, which goes to much higher temperature than 1TEV.

Is there a Higgs theory? Anybody?
If not, why do we expect a Higgs particle.
And why should it make other particles massive?
