"If black holes destroy all matter then how can something without matter do anything to something else withoutmatter?"
Blackholes aren't matterless, they are extremely dense matter to the point of warping space beyond the point that light can escape. Think about the
power of gravity. Gravity is the warping of spacetime and everything, even light, must follow the contours of spacetime... if light gets to a point
where it cannot leave the pit created by the blackhole (event horizon), it endless spirals down into the darkness of the blackhole. What makes the
blackhole unique is that it traps light, but remember that all stars bend light with their gravitational fields, so a blackhole is only taking that to
