Good Afternoon,

I wonder if someone might help me understanding the current situation with regards to Black Holes.

I understand that we have theorised about black holes, singularities in our Universe and what they do is "suck" everything within a certain range into it.

I am not sure as to what the prevailing wisdom is for what happens to the matter that is "consumed" by the black hole.
My understanding was that at the other side of every black hole would eventually be another universe where the consumed matter was "deposited" once a "variable status" ( variable because not all Universes need contain the same amount of matter some small and some massive) had been obtained in that singularity resulting in the destruction of that black hole in the source universe (without necessarily the destruction of the host universe) and the "creation" of the new universe "on the other side". In the newly created universe this event would be observed as something approximating the big bang i.e. something has appeared to show up from nothing and everywhere at the same time. However, I have been unable to locate any theories proposing this sort of thing to read more into it. It may be simply a figment of my imagination in which case that is fine.
I am also not certain whether there has yet been definite observational evidence for Black Holes yet or not. I understand the inherent problems in observing them but just wanted to clarify if there has been a widely accepted observation event yet with the associated published data.

I greatly appreciate your time and effort in replying to my question and hope that this has not already been addressed in other threads. I did perform a search of the forum and was unable to indentify an answer to my question.

Many Thanks
