Once inside a black hole, beyond the Event Horizon, we can only speculatewhat the fate of captured matter is. General relativity tells us that thereare two kinds of black holes; the kind that do not rotate, and the kind that do. Each of these kinds has a different anatomy inside the Event Horizon.For the non-rotating 'Schwarzschild black hole', there is no way for matter to avoid colliding with the Singularity. In terms of the time registered by aclock moving with this matter, it reaches the Singularity within a few micro seconds for a solar-massed black hole, and a few hours for a supermassive black hole. We can't predict what happens at the Singularity because the theory says we reach a condition of infinite gravitational force.For the rotating ' Kerr Black holes', the internal structure is more complex, and for some ingoing trajectories for matter, you could in principle avoid colliding with the Singularity and possibly reemerge from the black holesomewhere else, or at some very different future time thousands or billionsof years after you entered.

A black hole can only suck up what comes close to it, and has sufficient mass to react to gravity. The base particles of our reality, I would think, are safe, larger matter, not so safe. Photons (light) can't even escape the gravity of a black hole.
Before the discovery of the "dark energy" phenomenon, something like this was considered to be a possibility, it was called "The big crunch" or the "gnab gib" which is the big bang in reverse.

So if black holes just keep sucking up matter to one very dense point. Eventually wouldn't every black hole have to eat everything, until there is just one black whole left, being one small condensed spot?
