    yeah I definitely understand how they just completely destroy everything even though they came from a star it makes so much sense

              How is the blackhole losing energy exactly from hawking radiation?
              You had a huge leap in logic there.
              Maybe I'm an idiot, but gaining 1 particle and "losing" another (which really was never part of the blackhole anyways) does not mean energy loss to me. If anything, that would mean it's gaining energy.

                The virtual particles he mentioned earlier are actually 'matter' and 'antimatter' which in a collision will destroy eachother leaving a net mass of 0 in accordance with the conservation of mass. When this process happens at the surface of a black hole the anti matter particle will destroy a part of the black hole instead of colliding with the matter particle which then becomes a real particle which will shoot off effectively leaving the black hole with one less particle

                If the virtual particles keep popping up in empty space, and one particle escapes and one falls into the black hole, this would mean black hole is gaining mass, since those popping up particles just popped up as the video said, they werent part of black hole that escaped. :/

                  if they black whole is giving off something then surely we could find a way to use it to power things. holding on to life around a black hole.

                            In the animation (anime) Stellvia, an interesting concept is presented about gravitational shields created precisely to protect the earth from impacts such as these. Is this merely possible or just ramblings of a creative mind?

                                            What if the universe restarts itself when black holes reach such a mass to large they explode and create a super nova expelling all there mass they once had after they engulfed most the universe. And from there that’s what’s consider the Big Bang and the universe restarts from there

                                                      Our part of the universe is still very young. My theory is a black hole could eventually die like a sun. Due to lack of food or planetery magnetic changes. Even stars dying every thing ends Realeasing every it ate that was trapped in time also very compressed.
