Well light also does not have mass and gets sucked it anyways, its the fabric of space that gets bent so light cant escape it so even without mass it is trapped

The more mass , the more gravity. The more gravity , the larger the event horizon becomes as the time/space fabric is warped.
For some posting on here
Not only does physics account for how a Black Hole (gravity well ) is created , they have proof of their existence.
Black Holes were even postulated to exist well before Einstein.
The theory still has some "holes" in it. Does it ever release the material, or does it keep building until everything is sucked in? Otherwise, I think a lot of us understand it the way you do. We may be looking at a portal to another side of the universe or it goes to another dimension.
Ummm...or the super massives attract and swallow one another until eventually only one remains...which having engulfed all of the matter in the universe...reaches a critical mass state that eventually leads to a big bang scenario and the creation of another universe from the ashes of the old...
Nature does love the cyclical...

I've noticed this is a tough concept for many people.
You are correct light does have relativistic mass.
When scientists say light has no mass they really are saying light has no rest mass.
Since light is never at rest it always has relativistic mass due to it's momentum.
The famous equation E=MC^2 is actually E2 = (mc2 )2 + (pc)2. It has a term for momentum. Also the M is rest mass.
So for light E2 = (0c2)2 +(pc)2 = (pc)2.
So E = pc for rest massless radiation such as light. p is the momentum.
Actually meaning physicists dont know . Thus they call it "dark matter"
All matter exists in all 11 dimensions or doesnt exist at all.

No dimension has mass nor energy.
Did you just say, 'Nothing has nothing'?
Or put another way, nothing means nothing.
Welcome to the new science, anything goes...

black holes aren't what they think they are. If they were, all the matter in every galaxy would eventually be sucked right in.
This obviously isn't happening.
The primer fields is much closer to the truth in my opinion.
