Here is my thoery, black hole kept sucking stuff that it got to the point where other black holes started merging in together then later on, everything was concentrated at one point, which caused the big bang. So it really is a cycle. WHat do you guys think?

Hawking radiation prevents this from happening. Over time the black hole just kinda will evaporate. Suppose that all the matter is in the hole, besides getting into the theoretics as to whether our universe exists anymore, quantum mechanics allows for fluctuations in spacetime, some of which become particles, particle, antiparticle pair. The black hole can pull cause both to gain momentum, and hence energy. And since that energy must come from somewhere, the black hole is in essence evaporating. Thats the current theory.
For me, my question is doesn't that black hole gain some energy when it sucks in one of the particles? I would assume that most of the time one of them would get pulled in while the other flies off.

Well, if we assume that black hole is being fed till infinity, well, I know that as black hole is being fed, its size doesn't increase, well then, will there come a point when it will big bang or will it continue to consume matter forever? I know there are theories that black hole is taking matter here and leaking it somewhere else but I don't know if they have any evidence for it. Btw, I once heard that black hole is a size of a dust particle but my bro. doesn't believe me and when I searched on internet, they say there are many kinds of sizes.(such as gravity field from where light doesn't escape, real matter, etc.) I am just confuse, can someone help me out?
Also, I don't understand hawking radiation, I mean why does it omit radiation? And when it takes antiparticle(I thought antiparticle doesn't have negative mass as discussed in a different discussion, considering that antiparticle and antimatter are the samething), doesn't it have equal probablity of taking a matter in? Which means that even if black hole does decrease its mass by antiparticle(which I don't get), it would regain it w/ equal probability theorem. lol

How does a black hole die?
It's pretty complicated, and you probably need Space Tiger or Astronuc or the like to really explain it. To start with, black holes can indeed merge if they come within gravitational capture range of each other. A hole is generally referenced by its mass, so if a 6 solarmass hole merged with a 4 SM one, the result would be one 10 SM hole. There are several different radii by which the hole can be defined. The one that is most often thought of is the Event Horizon, so named because that is the distance from the centre beyond which no event can be witnessed. The reason for that is that the escape speed exceeds c at that point, so light that would reveal the event can't get out to be seen.
Hawking radiation comes from the Ergosphere. That is the point at which an object can gain energy from the hole. If a rock with 500 units of energy were to split in half at that point, one piece could fall into the hole and contribute 250 units to it. The other, conversely, could snipe 300 units from the hole and bugger off. The net loss to the hole would be 50 units. In Hawking radiation, pair production of particles from pure energy occurs at the ergosphere. One particle falls in, but the other makes a run for it and takes some of the hole's energy with it. In that manner, the hole can 'evaporate'.

I still don't get that 250 units turning into 300. How does that happen?

Forgeting the ergosphere for the moment, an old post of mine (on HR and EM production)was: As far as the ergosphere in concerned, it is this space (area) between the EH and the ergosphere where an object approaching the BH can gain energy and exit with more energy than it had on approach. This is as long as it does not also enter the EH and be lost forever. This effect, not Hawhing Radiation, can also cause the BH to lose mass, but, the energy added to an escaping particle in this case is provided by the angular momentum of the BH. And, since the BH loses angular momentum, it loses energy. Once again, a loss of energy = a loss of mass since mass = energy. Gets confusing, don't it..

1. When 2 black holes merge, how is the energy lost? In order for energy to loose, it needs to go away, but I thought black hole does'nt allow that to happen?
2. I know ergosphere is the outer layer but what is the diff b/w ergosphere and event horizon?(is it that when light comes in ergosphere, it bends but when it comes to even horizon, it never returns? 3. What causes the gap b/w two? 4. But the same question again, if black hole accepts antiparticle, shouldn't it have the equal probability of accepting particles? Which would equal the weight of the black hole.

Oops...
Sorry for the misinformation. It's been a very long time (couple decades) since I've paid much attention to these things. The mind slips. Thanks for the correction, Labguy. I'll just be slinking back to Engineering now...

Any answers? Please?
Here is an added question on top: If black hole sucks a 2 gram copper and 2 million grams of gold, they both would turn into 0 volume, infinite density. Then what would the diff b/w those two remain? (diff. of how much energy each converts to from mass? Since we can't really say one's mass is bigger than the other b/c both of them turns into infinite density, but may be, if we convert that mass into energy, we can find the differene.) What do you think?

What is the difference b/w a small black hole and big?(size?) B/c I thought that black hole's size is like the object it sucks which is like zero volume, infinite density.(excluding the event horizon and ergosphere, just the size where the objects really are.)
Oh I get it, bigger black holes have larger ergosphere, the distance b/w ergosphere and event horizon and event horizon, right?
