: : the other one was that it just rips hrough space-time and actually only takes up the space of a pin point because in some ways it isnt even part of our universe. : : : if anyone knows which is the right one, or if its a different one, please let me know

: : FWIW, I am reading a book called Hyperspace by Michio Kaku (co-founder of string theory) that proposes just this scenario. Kaku claims space time is actually 10 dimensional and a lot of the "problems" with General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics are solved if you use 10 dimensions. As a result, Black Holes can form bridges into other "dimensions", Einstein-Rosen bridges IIRC.

: : Kip Thorne in "Black Holes and Time Warps, Einsteins outrageous legacy" also favours this solution as well.

: : This is not to say it is the answer, just that some people are looking at it and proposing novel solutions.

: : Yelmalio

: The above conclusions supports my contention that black holes destroy mass. If the singularity is largely the door to another universe, then the mass absorbed by the singularity must at least in part be transported to the other universe and is lost to our universe. This is equivalent to the singularity restoring pre-big bang conditions, namely the massless unified field, within its boubdaries. : Extremal black holes where mass is balanced by charge is known to be a higher-dimensional membrane. So it's likely that the singularity of any black hole is a membrane that constitutes a phase change from massive fields on the outside to the unifield inside and therefore the singularity is not actually singular and has a non-zero but as yet unknown size, but larger than a Planck length.

Until a theory of quantum gravity is developed there isn't much other than speculation as to what a singularity is or even whether they actually exist.
