What is inside a black hole?

What do you think? it is just compressed matter? or is there another universe? or something else?

There are so many theories about black holes, what they are, what's inside them, are they "worm holes" to another existence, and even if they exist at all.

They probably do exist, and are the result of great mass imploding into near-infinite density. A black hole has such tremendous gravity that it affects everything within its surroundings to vast distances. Like a whirlpool, it will eventually suck everything down its hungry maw, to add to and become another part of its tremendous mass.

If we could truly understand gravity, we could understand the physics of black holes, but for now that eludes us. The logical conclusion is that a black hole is just a ball of matter of unimaginable density. Just a ball of sub-atomic particles, or even their components.

What we do not know is whether our known laws of physics even apply in such density and gravity. Every known principle could be dismantled, and a whole different action could be taking place. This is where all the speculation, some bordering on bizarre, comes about. If the principles of physics as we know them do not exist there, then all bets are off as to what the thing really is.

One thing for sure. Even if it was in reality a worm-hole to another universe or time, we certainly couldn't survive the trip. As we approached a black hole, we would be going at constantly increasing speed and mass, becoming elongated like a string as we approached. Any semblance of a body, brain or consciousness would be long gone before we got close. Our matter itself would be torn apart, atoms, particles, quarks, etc., would become ever smaller and denser. Whatever remains of our body that would emerge from the other side of the worm hole would be merely part of a dense sub-atomic soup.

The cosmological theory to which I tend to subscribe is that eventually all matter attracts all other matter, and gravity is master of the universe. Sometime in the distant future all galaxies will be sucked into their respective black holes, and there will be only a huge array of black holes in the universe, each attracting the others. Eventually, all will crash back into a single mass and crush to an incredibly dense point, imploding into a more and more dense mass until it reaches the point of "nothingness", or a new singularity. From this singularity will emerge another Big Bang, and all is created anew.

The inside of a black hole in the sum total of everything that has crossed the event horizon. That would included light (photons), x-rays, gamma rays, any and all things in the light spectrum. All matter including things such as stars that have wandered to close to the black hole, have fall prey to the intense gravity, and have been drawn in. Any other form of matter that wanders to close to the black hole and crosses the event horizon. In fact to make it simple, any thing that is attracted by gravity and comes to close is inside the black hole although not in its original form.

Were it not for dark energy expanding the universe it is possible that black holes may have ultimately preyed on black holes and so forth to the point where the gravity became so intense that our universe after "X" trillion years may have collapsed to an infinitesimal point again at which point the "Big Bang" may have started afresh. Just conjecture on my part.

I don't know what is inside a black hole. There are a lot of guesses, but no one knows for sure. We'll know when they send something through there that can reach the other side. It could be a different universe, but it might be just nothing.

I read a thing once about how a black hole would completely tear you apart when you get near it. It would be interesting to see what awaits us on the other side. Maybe an alien race will greet everyone on the other side.

I heard a theory to that universes branch off and create new ones. I don't think you can actually see a black hole. They just know it is there because of the activity that is going on in the area. I've never seen a picture.

What is inside a black hole is everything that crosses the event horizon. Whether it be stars that rotate too close the the black hole and eventually get pulled in or beams of light (photons) or x-rays or gamma rays or anything that gravity can act on. It is that simple and that complicated. Black holes can merge and form bigger black holes and the sum total of all that they containted they still contain.

Where it not for dark matter expanding the universe, black holes could possibly have re-compressed the universe to a infinitesimal point and re-initiated a new "big bang. Of course that is just conjecture on my part.

A way to think about gravity is how objects sort of curves space. Similar to how an object imprints itself on a trampoline, the same thing is done in three dimensional space. A black hole is a really extreme case of this where the cure is infinitely large toward a single point. Some people debate this mathematical modeling is impossible.

I personally like the more theoretical approach. There is a white hole somewhere spitting everything back out. Is something ever going to confirm this? Probably not in the near future.

We not known with certainty, it could be a white hole. it exists only in theory, would be the opposite of a black hole, i mean something that eject matter or energy, which agrees with the vision of the big bang.
although it is only a theory.

Nothing can be predicted accurately about the black hole because the gravity of black hole is so high that even light rays falling on that hole can never return. I think you got it.

I believe that at the center of a black hole there is anti-matter, meaning dark energy.
But at this point those are just hypotheses.
