I have a theory on light and black holes. I wanted to ask you guys if my theory may have some merit or is completely wrong. Alright here it is....
First I will start off with stars. As most of you know ,many stars spin. You may also know that massive stars are really hot. The reason that black
holes form is not compression. The reason is the heat and the spin of the star. When a star dies it cools first from the core.When that core cools
down all the way it will become an IMPERFECT black body. This IMPERFECT black body will absorb close to 100% of all light. As the new black center of
the star absorbs the light it gains mass. It gains the mass because of the spin. The light is absorbed which then becomes mass. "Why?" you may ask.
Because of this equation: E=mc2. The more it spins the more light is turned into mass. So when the spin stops it starts to release the black holes
contents. This would be a BIG BANG. This would also prove that black holes themselves have their own "Life" if you will. So at the end of their life
it is a big bang. Then at the beginning a big conversion. It would also I believe would account for the radiation coming out of the black hole.
I have also thought of light being in 3 states. The first state is obviously light. The second state is energy. The last state is matter. This is
related to my theory of black holes because it directly contribute to why and how a black hole can be made using light. So by manipulating light you
can also manipulate matter.Light can change states the same way matter can change states.The first change is absorption. The second change is motion.
The third and final change is stopping the spin.I don't want to really elaborte on this paragraph but if anyone doesn't understand I will.
Interesting post, but seems pretty uninformed.
A black hole is thought to be formed when a large star's fusion "engine" shuts down.
A normal, functioning star is in a state of constant balance: gravity is attempting to crush the mass of gas inwards, but the fusion occuring at the
star's core provides enough pressure to keep it out.
When a particularly large star runs through all its fusionable material (in other words; it has fused all its lighter elements into heavier elements,
and then some of those heavier elements into even heavier elements), the balance is overridden. The pressure from the core is extinguished, and
suddenly the mass collapses in on itself.
There are a few possibilities at this point, depending on the mass of the star. An average star will undergo a supernova, and expel its remaining
material into space. A larger star below a certain threshhold of mass will become a neutron star (a tiny, super dense star, where the pressure
previously provided by fusion energy is now replaced solely by the repulsion within the now-crushed atoms), and the largest stars will collapse beyond
the point of nova, beyond the point of subatomic particle repulsion, and collapse into a ball of mass so small that its gravity warps space around
To address a few points in your OP:
1. All stars spin. A star couldn't have been formed if the gas that formed it wasn't spinning to start with, and due to conservation of energy, it
will never stop spinning unless an outside force acts upon it (and it'd have to be quite a large outside force).
2. I don't think you understand what a "blackbody" is. There is certainly nothing about a cooling star that would absorb enough light to convert
that light into meaningful mass.
3. Radiation from black holes already is explained. It's given off from material that is being sucked into a black hole, and only is given off
before that material has passed the black hole's event horizon.
I'd like you to elaborate on what you mean by the last paragraph.
