objects to exist (Lest they dissipate from hawkings radiation) so would that make whatever goes in the... "Hole food"?
All we can say for sure
about the density of a black hole relates to the volume encompassed by the event horizon and the amount of matter contained in that volume. That puts
a limit on the density and it could be more dense than that inside. The mathematical singularity calculation may not be correct...remember we still
don't have a quantum theory of gravity so there are unanswered questions.
All the black hole needs to sustain it is the cosmic microwave background radiation, which at its current temperature I think means the black hole has
to be something like the mass of the moon or larger to not evaporate due to hawking radiation. As the CMB temp decreases in the future, this will
affect the hawking radiation balance and even black holes more massive than the moon would start to evaporate.
To the OP, how do you reconcile this tear in the fabric of space-time with Hawking radiation? Or have you thought about that?
