comes from Lorentz invariance. Hoyle and Naraliker have already proven mathematically that matter creation and/or destruction can occur in regions of non-Lorentz invariance, such as the singularity of a black hole.

So Ray you see that it's all been worked out doing math physics.

By the way, the existence of north-south poles of matter excretion from black holes is a purely math effect. It turns out that the equations of GR can be solved exactly for two dimensional space, and that black holes cannot form in two dimensions. They are optimally formed in three dimensions, and in 4 space dimensions they form so efficiently that the universe could not exist in 4 space dimensions. It's all in Kip Thorne's book on black holes.

So anyway, dense things like galaxies and black holes try to mimic two space dimensions- like in the spiral galaxies just for stability and to prevent formation of too many black holes. But black holes that form from star collapse want to be spherical. The compromise is that the event horizon is spherical, but the singularity is football shaped to keep the black hole stable, except that matter is created from the force particles that leak out the ends of the football.
