Hawking lecture- Do black holes have hair?

BBC produced video covers an illustrated Stephen Hawking presentation questioning whether black holes have hair or not.

He gives a tutorial about thermodynamics and the Second Law on entropy and how, over time entropy increases. It leads to a gravitational collapse which causes eventually, a singularity. He describes an event horizon, or a point of no return encircling rim of gravitationally dense black holes. This theory is based on bodies of mass being made up of nuclear cores. And as mass entropy speeds along, these mass furnaces become denser to the point where they collapse into a point of ultimate density. He calls this a ‘singularity’.

This theory of black holes weighs heavily on entropic effects of gravity upon mass. His black holes grow dense through hydrogen to helium transfer, as the mass of them slowly disappears, caving in on itself to create a big black hole which we really can’t see but will devour whatever dare pass through it’s event horizon. But, when G-2 gas cloud, binary star orbited into close proximity to our milky way black hole, this didn’t happen. And more than just a little ‘Hawking radiation’ spewed from both poles of our black hole in response.

The pictorial depiction in video seems to get dimmer and darker to almost brooding by the end. It reminds me of the Nobel prize garnering theory that expansion of the universe is accelerating. I have yet to understand how this could be so. Red shift may not prove the best way to measure distance between objects in space. Parallax works better in practical application.

When these black holes spew out from their poles gamma and x-ray material, like our Milky Way black hole was spotted doing recently, perhaps new stars are born. Our galactic center could actually be the birthplace of the spiral arm galaxy. But, what caused it to come into being? That brings up the one miracle that Hawking needs, an original ‘Big Bang’ nuclear explosion.

Electromagnetism is everywhere yet I can find no evidence of it in this work. It’s in our blood as plasma. It’s in solar flares as plasma on the macro-scale. When G-2 closed in on the black hole at the center of our galaxy, the black hole reacted, releasing streams radiating gasses. Astronomers pondered whether the gas cloud would be swallowed up by the much more massive black hole but the object passed by, relatively unscathed instead. That’s when a report surfaced identifying the gas cloud as a possible binary star. Dr. Paul LaViolette had already suspected this and was worried that friction created by the clash might cause what he called a ‘super galactic wave’ to ripple out through the galaxy, reaching our solar system with broad, sweeping quantum kinetic strokes. But, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Hawking talks about the black holes’ event horizon, or point of no return. If you threw your enemy in a black hole, he says, and you watch them from a distance, you will see them get dimmer and dimmer until they are no more. Calgon, take me away. Oh, I guess we’re not in Kansas anymore.

G-2 gas cloud

The G-2 star passing by black hole didn’t collapse. Above photo taken using equipment at W.M. Peck Observatory. The black hole was not so dense within itself that it didn’t react to the presence of a star body either. Instead, it spewed out radiation. We’ve also witnessed comets passing through the sun and coming out the other side. We’ve seen the sun flaring as objects approach. If the sun’s nucleus is a boiling inferno, then how could ‘icy’ comets withstand a glancing blow without melting? A few comets were seen growing a tail after such a sun encounter. Both bodies reacted, but the smaller body was not torn apart.

It could be that this cloudy star system is in orbit with our galactic center. Most observed stars are binary, sharing an orbit. What causes two bodies to orbit around one another, if not magnetism? What causes them to spark and flare in close contact if not electricity?

The matter of black holes hinges on everything breaking down over time, endlessly drifting apart until nothing but absolute zero remains. It’s a science of decay. Descended from sludge, we should enjoy the ride.

I believe that there is a unifying theory, simply stated ‘as above, so below’ and ‘as within, so without’. Chaos found in the cosmos can actually be seen in the natural world. Life is intelligent and not much of it is comprised of an eternal furnace.
