i totally agree with your post alan...i've always been told that, due to E=mc2, that black holes are essentially able to spew out matter in the form of energy, thus there has to be an "inflow and outflow" area. This all makes sense looking at a 2 dimensional picture of a black hole (where the black hole's density distorts space, making it look like a whirplool), however, if you think of that same picture in a 3 dimensional , how can the black hole be spherical AND have an inflow and outflow as shown in the 2 dimensional picture? please post any more information you have on this topic. but keep it simple, i am only 16.
