Black Holes Are Never Spherical

Hi. I am a former scientist of aeronautics at Caltech.

I've been thinking about blackholes for quite some time now.

One cannot strictly adhere to Einsteins predictions for black holes as being accurate physical descriptions of what black holes really are.
Black holes, As I understand them to be, are nothing more than vortices through which matter passes. The photos (not simulations) I have seen show this fairly clearly, although admittedley, I have not looked more than passingly at the available photographic data.

Every image of a black hole that I have seen clearly show an inflow area, and an outflow area. Thus, My proposition is that THERE ARE NO SPHERICAL BLACK HOLES in reality, and that blackholes can merely be likened to giant WHIRLPOOLS IN SPACE. The forces which cause black holes to form are the subjects of other discussions, but I will say weakly that I doubt highly the proposition that collapsing stars form black holes. The fact that black holes are commonly observed near the centers of Galaxies offers ample support for my claim.

Comments very welcome. I am eager to find observational evidence (not simulated) that refutes my claims. Regards,
