# In the Pages | Null Cosmology & Black Holes

**Everything we’ve ever heard about black holes depicts voracious, destructive gravitational forces gulping up any stars and solar systems unlucky enough to cross their path.** In fact, we’re told that the gravitational force in a black hole is so strong that nothing escapes its maw -not even light. As it turns out, this is not an accurate portrayal of a black hole’s true nature.

**Null physics** demonstrates that our universe is eternal; it had no beginning and it will never cease to exist. This in turn requires that matter and energy be renewable in order to maintain a vast cosmic equilibrium. If all of the matter and energy that was sucked into a **black hole** were irretrievably captured, our universe would eventually be depleted of its contents, leaving a desolate expanse of massive **black holes**. Clearly, the contemporary interpretation of a black hole is directly at odds with an eternal universe. So the question arises “How can the material contents of our universe remain in a state of eternal balance given the nature of black holes?”

**The answer is simple** - a black hole’s event horizon is a mathematical concept, not a physical reality. As shown by the elementary particle geometry presented in null physics, gravitational potential *reduces* the density of the material of which a black hole is composed. This reduction prevents this material from achieving a density sufficient to create an event horizon. The surfaces of **black holes** have extraordinary gravitational potentials, reaching values of -0.999 or higher, but they cannot reach the potential necessary for an event horizon to exist, which is -1. The greater a black hole’s mass, the closer its surface potential gets to -1, but it will always fall short.

In the absence of an event horizon, the material capture of a **black hole** is a *reversible* process. For every particle falling into the deep, dark gravity of a **black hole**, another particle escapes. This is the secret to universal equilibrium.
