You say: "Space and mass never enter black holes through the event horizon,"

Well for Hawking radiation to exist, it is what gives black holes entropy, the event horizon must radiate half of a virtual particle pair and absorb the other half. The formula Hawking found for black hole entropy has been derived in several different ways- like from string theory, where Vafa just counted the number of modes in a black hole.

So based on that, I would question your premise.

Now I happen to believe that space is also absorbed by black holes. Its a published model called "The River Model" that I referenced below in this subforum. But some physicists disagree with this.
