ORBITING A BLACK HOLE

Unlit on the stage,

the dark juggler must be there,

though we just see stars.

I found two excellent articles about belief in the existence of black holes.  They are:

The bottom line is that black holes are mathematically real as well as physically demonstrable.  We have scientifically witnessed their gravitational waves as they merge,

and we have recently photographed distortions or lensing caused by their gravitational effects.

 

However, my next topic, while as mathematically real as black holes, has an even greater air of speculation.  While certainly true that, according to known laws of motion, there is an unseen gravitational effect which holds galaxies together, the invention of an entirely new and relatively undetectable and un-reactive form of matter that serves as the scaffolding of our universe, may be a bit premature, not to say fantastical. This doesn’t mean it’s incorrect, of course.
